51. A Two Degree of Freedom Nanopositioner with Electrothermal Actuator for Decoupled Motion
Topic: Metrology
Published: 8/31/2011
Authors: Yong Sik Kim, Nicholas G Dagalakis, Satyandra K. Gupta
Abstract: Building a two degree-of-freedom (2 DOF) MEMS nanopositioner with decoupled X-Y motion has been a challenge in nanopositioner design. In this paper a novel design concept on making the decoupled motion of the MEMS nanopositioner is suggested. The sug ...

52. A Prototype IEEE 1451.4 Smart Transducer Interface for Sensors and Actuators
Topic: Metrology
Published: 8/19/2011
Authors: Yuyin Song, David Michael Westbrook, Kang B Lee
Abstract: Analog transducers (sensors or actuators) are widely used in industry. The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 1451.4 standard defines a mixed-mode communication protocol and the Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS) formats fo ...

53. Large-Area Overhead Manipulator for Access of Fields
Topic: Metrology
Published: 7/22/2011
Authors: Jeffrey W White, Roger V Bostelman
Abstract: Multi-axis, cable-driven manipulators have evolved over many years providing large area suspended platform access, programmability, relatively rigid and flexibly- positioned platform control and full six degree of freedom (DOF) manipulation of sensor ...

54. Inkjet Metrology II: Resolved Effects of Ejection Frequency, Fluidic Pressure and Droplet Number on Reproducible Drop-on-Demand Dispensing
Topic: Metrology
Published: 6/13/2011
Authors: R Michael Verkouteren, Jennifer R Verkouteren
Abstract: We report highly reproducible gravimetric and optical measurements of microdroplets enabled by fluidic pressure feedback control and state-of-the-art measurement systems that lend new insights into the process of drop-on-demand (DOD) printing. Baseli ...

55. Methodology for imaging of nano-to-microscale water condensation dynamics on complex nanostructures
Topic: Metrology
Published: 6/11/2011
Authors: Konrad Rykaczewski, John Henry j Scott
Abstract: By transferring of a small part of a macroscale sample to a novel thermally insulated sample platform we are able to mitigate flooding and electron heating problems typically associated with Environmental Scanning Electron Microscopy imaging of water ...

56. Measurement Traceability and Quality Assurance in a Nanomanufacturing Environment
Topic: Metrology
Published: 3/8/2011
Authors: Ndubuisi George Orji, Ronald G Dixson, Aaron Cordes, Benjamin Bunday, John Allgair
Abstract: A key requirement for nano-manufacturing is maintaining acceptable traceability of measurements performed to determine size. Given that properties and functionality at the nanoscale are governed by absolute size, maintaining the traceability of dimen ...

57. Mixed Pallet Stacking: An Overview and Summary of the 2010 PerMIS Special Session
Topic: Metrology
Published: 2/4/2011
Authors: Stephen B. Balakirsky, Henrik I. Christensen, Thomas Rollin Kramer, Pushkar Kolhe, Frederick M Proctor
Abstract: Stacking boxes of various sizes and contents on pallets (i.e. making mixed pallets) is a primary method of preparing goods for shipment from a warehouse to a store or other distant site. A special session of the 2010 PERMIS workshop was held to exami ...

58. Present Estimates of the Differences Between Thermodynamic Temperatures and the ITS-90
Topic: Metrology
Published: 1/29/2011
Authors: Joachim Fischer, M. DePodesta, K. D. Hill, Michael R Moldover, Laurent Pitre, R. Rusby, Peter Steur, Osamu Tamura, R. White, L. Wolber
Abstract: In 2005, the Consultative Committee for Thermometry (CCT) recommended the creation of a Mise en pratique for the definition of the kelvin and envisioned that future versions of the Mise en pratique would recommend values of the differences between ...

59. On Modeling the Peak Temperature on the Tool-Chip Interface during High-Speed Machining of AISI 1045 Steel
Topic: Metrology
Published: 12/8/2010
Authors: Timothy J Burns, Steven P Mates, Richard L. Rhorer, Eric Paul Whitenton, Debasis Basak
Abstract: New experimental data on AISI 1045 steel from the NIST pulse-heated Kolsky Bar Laboratory is presented. The material is shown to exhibit a stiffer response to compressive loading when it has been rapidly preheated than it does when it has been heated ...

60. Inexpensive Ground Truth and Performance Evaluation for Human Tracking using multiple Laser Measurement Sensors
Topic: Metrology
Published: 10/27/2010
Authors: William P Shackleford, Tsai Hong Hong, Tommy Chang
Abstract: This paper will describe a flexible and inexpensive method of obtaining ground truth for the evaluation of Human Tracking systems. It is expected to be appropriate for evaluating systems used to allow robots and/or autonomous vehicles to operate safe ...
