61. A Measurement System for Characterizing the Detection Performance of Metal Detectors: Design and Operation
Series: NIST Interagency/Internal Report (NISTIR)
Report Number: 6530
Topic: Sensors
Published: 6/1/2000
Authors: Nicholas G Paulter Jr., Donald R Larson, Jon Robert Pratt
Abstract: A measurement system for evaluating the performance of hand-held (HH) and walk-through (WT) metal detectors is described. These detectors produce time-varying magnetic fields that interact with objects comprised of electrically conductive and/or mag ...

62. Exclusion Limits on the WIMP-Nucleon Scattering Cross-Section from the Cryogenic Dark Matter Search
Topic: Sensors
Published: 1/1/2000
Authors: S. R. Golwala, R. Abusaidi, D. S. Akerib, P. D. Barnes, D. Bruce Bauer, A. Bolozdynya, P. Brink, B. Cabrera, D. O. Caldwell, J. P. Castle, R. M. Clarke, P. Colling, M. B. Crisler, A. Da Silva, A. K. Davies, R. Dixon, S. Eichblatt, Kent D Irwin, R. J. Gaitskell, E. E. Haller, J. Hellmig, Martin Huber, J. Jochum, F. P. Lipschultz, John M. Martinis, Sae Woo Nam, J. Nelson, B. Neuhauser, T. A. Perera, M. Perillo-Issac, R. R. Ross, T. Saab, B. Sadoulet, R. W. Schnee, P. Shestople, T. Shutt, Amy Smith, A. H. Sonnenschein, A. L. Spadafora, S. Yellin, B. Young
Abstract: The Cryogenic Dark Matter Search (CDMS) employs massive ionization- and phonon-mediated detectors to search for WIMPs via their elastic scattering interactions with nuclei while discriminating against interactions by other background particles. Limit ...

63. Evaluating the Uncertainty of Josephson Voltage Standards
Topic: Sensors
Published: 12/31/1999
Authors: Clark A. Hamilton, Yi-hua Tang

64. Microcalorimeter Energy Dispersive Spectrometry for Low Voltage SEM
Topic: Sensors
Published: 12/31/1999
Authors: David A Wollman, Dale E Newbury, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, David A Rudman, L L Dulcie, Norman F Bergren, John M. Martinis

65. Using Chaos to Generate White Noise
Topic: Sensors
Published: 11/15/1999
Author: Richard Lloyd Kautz
Abstract: Numerical simulations reveal that a phase-locked loop can be operated in a chaotic regime to generate a high level of noise which is approximately white over a broad frequency range. Heuristic arguments indicate that the low-frequency power spectrum ...

66. A Capacitance Standard Based on Counting Electrons
Topic: Sensors
Published: 9/1/1999
Authors: Mark W Keller, A P Chen, John M. Martinis, Neil M Zimmerman
Abstract: A capacitance standard based directly on the definition of capacitance was built.

67. Leakage and Counting Errors in a Seven-junction Electron Pump
Topic: Sensors
Published: 9/1/1999
Authors: Richard Lloyd Kautz, Mark W Keller, John M. Martinis
Abstract: Leakage and counting errors are explored experimentally in a well-characterized seven-junction electron pump and compared with predictions of the orthodox theory, including cotunneling.

68. Cryogenic Microcalorimeters for X-Ray Microanalysis
Topic: Sensors
Published: 7/1/1999
Authors: David A Wollman, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, Norman F Bergren, David A Rudman, Dale E Newbury, John M. Martinis
