Line drawing of the thermal impedance amplifier

Thermal Impedance Amplifier

NIST Inventors
Adam McCaughan, Varun Verma, Sonia Buckley and Sae Woo Nam
Patent Description Presently, superconducting electronics are being applied to areas such as computational backends for future quantum processors, high-performance supercomputing, and ultrafast digital signal processing. In all of these areas, data must be communicated between the superconducting

Optical Time Distributor and Process for Optical Two-Way Time-Frequency Transfer

NIST Inventors
Laura Sinclair, Nathan R Newbury, William C. Swann and JD Deschenes
Patent Description The invention is a method to compare and synchronize "clocks" (i.e. local timescales) through optical links across free space, which include open air paths through the atmosphere to other terrestrial sites or to satellites, as well as satellite-to-satellite paths. The challenge is

Hub and Spoke System for Detecting and Locating Gas Leaks

NIST Inventors
Greg Rieker, Ian Coddington, Nathan R Newbury, Kuldeep Prasad and Anna Karion
Patent Description The current practice for detecting methane leaks is still in its infancy. There are several environmental regulations that have driven the development of Forward-looking Infrared (FLIR) cameras, thermographic cameras that senses infrared radiation, for detection of Volatile

Reticulated Resonator, Process for Making and Use of Same

NIST Inventors
Raymond Simmonds, Katarina Cicak, Cindy Regal and Thomas Purdy
Patent Description Mechanical resonators are widely used in wireless receivers, bio sensors, and timing and frequency control. Besides industry, in recent years in academia there is also considerable interest for ultrahigh precision sensing and fundamental science. A mechanical resonator with the
