Model SM600 flat-profile series of proximity sensors are available in eight fixed-window sensing versions and six sensing ranges. The ULTEM 1000(reg) plastic housing measures 16 x 30 x 76 mm and is installed in difficult-to-mount areas. The housing is sealed to withstand dusty, noisy, 100% humidity high-pressure washdown environments. The sensors detect all objects of all colors and materials as small as 1.6 mm rod diameter at a distance of 38 mm, transparent or opaque, liquid or solid.
Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
