Device Simplifies Measurement of Fluoride Contamination in Water

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35149
Published 2019-09-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Adding fluoride to water has been common practice in a number of countries including the U.S. In low concentrations (below 1.5 mg/L), fluoride can help prevent tooth decay and strengthen bones; however, at higher levels, it can have the opposite effect, causing serious dental and bone disease, especially in children and developing fetuses. To determine whether drinking water is safe, fluoride must be detected in water at a parts-per-million (ppm) level. Measuring fluoride at such low concentrations with sufficient accuracy is expensive and requires a well-equipped chemical lab.

3D Meta-Optics for High-Energy Lasers

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35118
Published 2019-09-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

The scope of this research radically changed the way novel components are designed and fabricated for high-energy applications. This 3D Meta-Optics platform was, and is, essentially engineering the electromagnetic fields in 3D dielectric structures. The results have provided a class of transformational optical components that can be integrated at all levels throughout a high-energy laser system.

Integration of Adaptive Optics Into High-Energy Laser Modeling And Simulation

Aerospace & Defense Technology: September 2019

  • Magazine Article
  • 19AERP09_08
Published 2019-09-01 by SAE International in United States

Implementing adaptive optics can substantially increase the effective range of high energy lasers used in directed energy weapons systems.

The U.S. Navy is constantly predicting future threats and contemplating new weapon technologies to counter them. One of those technologies is directed-energy (DE) weapons. Conventional weapons rely on the kinetic energy of projectiles. High-energy lasers (HELs), one type of directed-energy weapon, work in a fundamentally new way, using electromagnetic radiation to damage or destroy enemy assets.

Spatiotemporal Imaging Exploiting Structured Sparsity

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-35104
Published 2019-09-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Spatiotemporal imaging contains a large class of imaging problems, which involve collecting a sequence of data sets to resolve both the spatial and temporal (or spectral) distributions of some physics quantity. This capability is exploited in numerous different fields such as remote sensing, security surveillance systems, astronomical imaging, and biomedical imaging. One typical example is hyperspectral imaging, which is a powerful technology for remotely inferring the material properties of the objects in a scene of interest. Ultrasonic and thermal imaging are other important examples of spatiotemporal imaging where high spatial resolution is needed for urban planning, military planning, intelligence and disaster monitoring and evaluation.

How Miniaturized Distributed Modular Architecture Advances Avionics Design

  • Magazine Article
  • TBMG-34865
Published 2019-08-01 by Tech Briefs Media Group in United States

Most of today’s collision-avoidance, in-flight-entertainment (IFE), air-to-ground-communications, and other avionics systems employ electronics packaging based on the Aeronautics Radio INC (ARINC) 600 standard. Compared to the older ARINC 404 standard dating from the 1970s that defined “black box” enclosures and racks within aircraft, ARINC 600 specified a Modular Concept Unit (MCU) – the basic building block module for avionics. An ARINC 600 metal enclosure can hold up to 12 MCUs, allowing a lot of computing power to be placed in a centralized “box.” By making it possible to run numerous applications over a real-time network, ARINC 600 enabled “next generation” integrated modular avionics (IMA).
