11. Evaluating Feedback Systems for Residential Building Energy Monitoring
Topic: Sensors
Published: 8/10/2013
Authors: Wenqi Guo, Tania Ullah, MengChu Zhou
Abstract: Rising global energy demand, increasing electricity prices, and the limitation of natural resources have led to increased interest in energy monitoring of residential buildings. Much research has been done to examine the effect of energy use feedback ...

12. Experimental Bounds on Classical Random Field Theories
Topic: Sensors
Published: 12/10/2014
Authors: Joffrey Kent Peters, Sergey V Polyakov, Jingyun Fan, Alan L Migdall
Abstract: Alternative theories to quantum mechanics motivate important fundamental tests of our understanding and description of the smallest physical systems. Here we place experimental limits on those classical field theories which result in power-depend ...

13. Experimental Study of the Thermal Impacts on Wireless Sensor Batteries
Topic: Sensors
Published: 4/10/2013
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: Wireless sensor networks are being considered for application within buildings to control various equipment in different working environments. As wireless sensors are powered by commercially available batteries, battery performance will directly affe ...

14. Greedy Backpressure Routing for Smart Grid Sensor Networks
Topic: Sensors
Published: 1/13/2014
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: In this paper, a greedy backpressure routing protocol is proposed for multigate mesh networks. This protocol evaluates the greedy backpressure metric (GBM) value of mesh points and routes packets in the direction of the steepest gradient. The GBM val ...

15. High-resolution X-ray emission spectroscopy with transition-edge sensors: present performance and future potential
Topic: Sensors
Published: 5/1/2015
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 R 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 ...

17. 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 ...

18. 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 R 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 ...

20. Ultra-high resolution alpha particle spectroscopy using calorimetry
Topic: Sensors
Published: 9/23/2008
Authors: Robert D 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 ...
