11. Wireless Sensor Network Performance Metrics for Building Applications
Topic: Sensors
Published: 4/1/2010
Authors: Won Suk Jang, William M Healy
Abstract: Metrics are investigated to help assess the performance of wireless sensors in buildings. Wireless sensor networks present tremendous opportunities for energy savings and improvement in occupant comfort in buildings by making data about conditions a ...

12. 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 ...

13. 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 ...

14. Coplanar Transmission Lines with Meandering Center Conductors in Y-Ba-Cu-O/Au Bilayers
Topic: Sensors
Published: 6/1/1999
Authors: C Weber, Ronald H. Ono, James C Booth, Leila R Vale, Samuel Paul Benz, A. M. Klushin, H. Kohlstedt, R. Semerad
Abstract: We have investigated both conventional and meandering coplanar microwave transmission lines patterned in Y-Ba-Cu-O/Au bilayers on yttria-stablized zirconia and sapphire substrates. Within the meandering waveguides, the gentre conductor was deformed ...

15. Operating Margins for a Superconducting Voltage Waveform Synthesizer
Topic: Sensors
Published: 6/1/1999
Authors: Samuel Paul Benz, Clark A. Hamilton, Charles J Burroughs
Abstract: Operating margins for biolar superconducting voltage waveform synthesizer were measured. Current ranges were determined for 101 equally spaced dc voltage steps between - 18.6 and + 18.6 mV. The measured voltages of these steps deviated from the exp ...

16. Progress Toward an AC Josephson Voltage Standard
Topic: Sensors
Published: 6/1/1996
Authors: Clark A. Hamilton, Charles J Burroughs, Samuel Paul Benz
Abstract: Progress toward a Josephson voltage standrd for fast dc measurements and ac waveform synthesis is described, including a version with SNS junctions operated at 11 GHz. A bias control circuit that achieves millampere drive capability, transient suppr ...

17. High-resolution x-ray emission spectroscopy with transition-edge sensors, present performance and future potential
Topic: Sensors
Published: Date unknown
Authors: William B Doriese, Joseph Westbrook Fowler, Daniel S Swetz, Cherno Jaye, Daniel A Fischer, Carl D Reintsema, Douglas A Bennett, Leila R Vale, Gene C Hilton, Daniel Richard Schmidt, Joel Nathan Ullom, Jens Uhlig, ujjwal mandal, wilfrid fullagar, fredrick Parnefjord Gustafsson, Dharma Kurunthu, Villy Sundstrom
Abstract: X-ray Emission Spectroscopy (XES) is a powerful, element-selective tool to analyze the oxidation states of atoms in complex compounds, determine their electronic configuration, and identify unknown compounds in challenging environments. Until now the ...
