The ICT(TM) probe is available for testing on 0.100-, 0.075-, and 0.050-inch centers. It features special bifurcated and formed cuts at the top of the barrel. The probe's design provides constant contact between the plunger and barrel at all times during the actuation process without any biasing. The four bifurcated fingers at the top of the barrel provide uniform radial pressure on the plunger shaft, holding the plunger parallel with the board.

For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
Anyone who’s ever moved files from a hard drive to a computer has sat patiently waiting for the transfer to complete. But what if this process could be done wirelessly, without having to connect devices with cables, and in seconds?
