Built for electron microscopy applications, this system can report on electronic magnetic field cancellation system status and trip history, and at the same time can disable or reset a system from another location if needed. Users can use the system's remote monitoring control to figure out the root cause of why a system went down and identify product defects. It can be installed and calibrated in as little as three days, and reduces magnetic interference with a flux compensation process run by driven coils mounted along or near the room vertices. Coil sets on opposing walls are made up of single 0.5-inch, or 1.3 cm o.d. cables installed in a freestanding structure or mounted to the walls. The system can detect alternating current magnetic fields coming from nearby ac power wiring, ground loops, transformers and other sources.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
