51. 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 ...

52. Hg+ Optical Frequency Standard: Recent Progress
Topic: Sensors
Published: 12/31/2000
Authors: B. Young, R J Rafac, James A Beall, J. E. Cruz, Wayne M Itano, David J Wineland, J. C. Bergquist

53. First Steps Towards Small Arrays of Mo/Au Microcalorimeters
Topic: Sensors
Published: 12/1/2000
Authors: J. Olsen, E. C. Kirk, K. Thomsen, B. van den Brandt, Ph. Lerch, L. Scandella, A. Zehnder, S. Mango, H. R. Ott, Martin Huber, Gene C Hilton, John M. Martinis
Abstract: We are developing small arrays of microcalorimeters based on transition edge sensors made with Mo/Au bilayers deposited on silicon nitride membranes and Au absorbers. The superconducting transition of the bilayers is adjusted to be around 130 mK with ...

54. Cryogenic IR/Optical/UV Fast Spectrophotometers for the Study of Time-Variable Astronomical Sources

Published: 11/1/2000
Authors: Aaron J. Miller, B. Cabrera, R. W. Romani, John M. Martinis, Sae Woo Nam, David M. Weld, J. P. Castle
Abstract: Our detectors are superconducting Transition-Edge Sensors that have been designed for photon counting in the energy (wavelength) range of 0.5 eV (2.5 micrometers) to 10 eV (124 nm). Our design consists of a 6 x 6 array of 20 micrometers by 20 microme ...

55. Microcalorimeter Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectrometer for Low Voltage Microanalysis
Topic: Sensors
Published: 11/1/2000
Authors: David A Wollman, John M. Martinis, Sae Woo Nam, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, David A Rudman, Norman F Bergren, Steven Deiker, Martin Huber, Dale E Newbury
Abstract: Improved x-ray detector technology continues to be a critical metrological need in the semiconductor industry for contaminant particle analysis^u1,2^ and for high-spatial-resolution x-ray microanalysis using low-beam-voltage field-emission scanning e ...

56. SQUIDs Past, Present, and Future: A Sympsium in Honor of Jim Zimmerman
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 5095
Topic: Sensors
Published: 10/1/2000
Author: Richard Lloyd Kautz
Abstract: The symposium on SQUIDs Past, Present, and Future was held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado on November 15, 1997 to celebrate the career of James E. Zimmerman. As a member of a team at the Ford Scientific La ...

57. National Institute of Justice Standard for Hand-Held Metal Detectors for Use in Concealed Weapon and Contraband Detection
Topic: Sensors
Published: 9/1/2000
Author: Nicholas G Paulter Jr.
Abstract: This document, NIJ Standard-0602.01, Hand-Held Metal Detectors for Use in Concealed Weapon and Contraband Detection, is an equipment standard developed by the Office of Law Enforcement Standards of the National Institute of Standards and Technology. ...

58. National Institute of Justice Standard for Walk-through Metal Detectors for Use in Concealed Weapon and Contraband Detection
Topic: Sensors
Published: 9/1/2000
Author: Nicholas G Paulter Jr.
Abstract: The National Institute of Justice (NIJ) standard for walk-through metal detectors for use in concealed weapon detection was written in 1974. The NIJ standard has been rewritten to provide repeatable and reproducible test methods, improved detection ...

59. Comparison of Elemental Detection Using Microcalorimetry, SIMS, AES and EDS (SEM, STEM, and TEM)

Published: 8/1/2000
Authors: C. B. Vartuli, F. A. Stevie, David A Wollman, M. Antonell, R. B. Irwin, J. M. McKinley, T L. Shofner, B. M. Purcell, S. A. Anderson, Bobby To
Abstract: Cu contamination has become a larger concern as more semiconductor fabrication facilities switch from aluminum to Cu interconnects. The resolution limits of several analytical tools are compared to determine the optimum analysis methods for detectin ...

60. Equations for the Magnetic Field Produced by One or More Rectangular Loops of Wire in the Same Plane
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Topic: Sensors
Published: 7/1/2000
Author: Martin Misakian
Abstract: Beginning with expressions for the vector potential, the equations for calculating the magnetic flux density from up to three rectangular loops of wire in the same plane are derived. The geometry considered is the same as that found in some walk-thr ...
