21. Generating and Using Data of Higher Dimension for Gas-Phase Chemical Sensing
Topic: Sensors
Published: 5/29/2009
Authors: Baranidharan Raman, Joshua L. Hertz, Kurt D Benkstein, Douglas C Meier, Casey Mungle, Stephen Semancik
Abstract: Methods to acquire and analyze rich data streams from sensors are helpful, if not required, to track chemical components within complex gas-phase environments. We describe a MEMS-based microsensor technology that populates multi-element arrays with m ...

22. Instrument Interface Standards for Interoperable Ocean Sensor Networks
Topic: Sensors
Published: 5/11/2009
Authors: Kang B Lee, Yuyin Song, Thomas O'Reilly, K. Headley, D. Edgington, C. Rueda, J. Zedlitz , J. Del Rio, E. Delory, S. Fairgrieve, L. Bermudez
Abstract: The utility and cost-effectiveness of large scale instrument networks are enhanced by instrument interoperability. Today s oceanographic instruments are characterized by very diverse non-standard software protocols and data formats. This diversity of ...

23. Sensor Alert Web Service for IEEE 1451-Based Sensor Networks
Topic: Sensors
Published: 5/7/2009
Authors: Kang B Lee, Yuyin Song
Abstract: This paper describes the Sensor Alert Web Service (SAWS) for the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1451-based sensor networks developed at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The SAWS consists of the Sens ...

24. Service-oriented Sensor Data Interoperability for IEEE 1451 Smart Transducers
Topic: Sensors
Published: 5/5/2009
Authors: Yuyin Song, Kang B Lee
Abstract: This paper describes a service-oriented sensor data interoperability architecture for Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1451 smart transducers. A sensor data interoperability prototype system based on the proposed architecture ...

25. CMOS Microhotplate Technology for Chemical and Biological Agent Detection
Topic: Sensors
Published: 3/16/2009
Authors: Muhammad Yaqub Afridi, Christopher B Montgomery, Elliott cooper-Balis, Stephen Semancik, Jon C Geist, Alim A Fatah
Abstract: In this paper we describe microhotplates that can serve as platforms for gas sensors of potential use for homeland security and other gas sensing applications. A brief review of the fabrication of microhotplate precursors in a CMOS-compatible technol ...

26. Integration of IEEE 1451 Smart Transducers and OGC-SWE Using STWS
Topic: Sensors
Published: 2/17/2009
Authors: Yuyin Song, Kang B Lee
Abstract: This paper describes the integration of IEEE 1451 smart transducers and Open Geospatial Consortium -Sensor Web Enablement (OGC-SWE) using the Smart Transducer Web Service (STWS). An integration architecture and a prototype system are presented. The i ...

27. Ultra-high resolution alpha particle spectroscopy using calorimetry
Topic: Sensors
Published: 9/23/2008
Authors: Robert Daniel Horansky, Joel Nathan Ullom, James A Beall, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, Don Dry, Beth Hastings, Stephen Lamont, Clifford R Rudy, Michael W Rabin
Abstract: Calorimetry has been used since the late 1700?s to measure the heat output of physical processes ranging from chemical reactions to the respiration of organisms . Calorimetry is performed by measuring the temperature change caused by heat release int ...

28. Magneto-resistive Field Mapping of Analog Audio Tapes for Forensics Imaging
Topic: Sensors
Published: 6/2/2008
Author: David P Pappas
Abstract: Magneto-resistive imaging of cassette tapes for forensic analysis applications is presented. Sample tapes were recorded on various tape recorders with events typically encountered in investigations. A comparison of the images with those obtained usin ...

29. Operation of an X-ray transition-edge sensor cooled by tunnel junction refrigerators
Topic: Sensors
Published: 1/19/2008
Authors: Nathan A Tomlin, James A Beall, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, Galen C O'Neil, Daniel Richard Schmidt, Leila R Vale, Joel Nathan Ullom
Abstract: We demonstrate successful cooling of an X-ray transition-edge sensor (TES) using solid-state refrigerators based on normal-metal/insulator/superconductor (NIS) tunnel junctions. Above the TES transition temperature (Tc), we use Johnson noise thermome ...

30. Work Function Characterization of TaSiN and TaCN Electrodes Using CV, IV, IPE and SKPM
Topic: Sensors
Published: 11/1/2006
Authors: Hao Xiong, Nhan V Nguyen, Joseph J Kopanski, John S Suehle, Eric M. Vogel
Abstract: Work function of TaSiN (TaCN) films on HfO2 or SiO2 gate dielectrics is investigated for the first time using a combination of Capacitance?Voltage, Fowler?Nordheim tunneling, internal Photoemission, and scanning Kelevin probe microscopy methods, whic ...
