Abstract: The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS) uses Ge and Si detectors to search for Weakly Interacting Massive Particles (WIMPs) via their elastic-scattering interaction with atomic nuclei. The present results from CDMS give limits on the spin-independent ...

43. High-resolution EDS Analysis of Ultra-Thin TaSiN Diffusion Barriers for Cu Metallization using Microcalorimetry
Topic: Sensors
Published: 12/31/2001
Authors: Robert E. Geer, D. Wu, David A Wollman
Abstract: The advent of microcalorimetry for x-ray detectors holds the promise for high-resolution compositional microanalysis applicable to nanometer-scale devices and structures. To demonstrate this capability, microcalorimeter-based energy dispersive x-ray ...

44. Resonance Damping in Tightly Coupled d.c. SQUIDs via Intra-Coil Resistors
Topic: Sensors
Published: 12/31/2001
Authors: Martin Huber, A. H. Steinbach, Ronald H. Ono

45. Jim Zimmerman and the SQUID
Topic: Sensors
Published: 3/1/2001
Author: Richard Lloyd Kautz
Abstract: The career of Jim Zimmerman, beginning with a solid foundation in electronics and cryogenics, reached a turning point in 1965 when he became coinventor of the rf SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device), while working at the Scientific Lab ...

46. Guide to the Technologies of Concealed Weapon and Contraband Imaging and Detection
Topic: Sensors
Published: 2/1/2001
Author: Nicholas G Paulter Jr
Abstract: The purpose of the guide is to provide information that will help members of the law enforcement and corrections community, who are present or potential users and operators of CWCIDSs, better understand the operation, limitations, and applicability o ...
