The JEOL ARM200F aberration-corrected S/TEM has improved atomic-scale resolution from a field-retrofittable cold-field emission gun. The resolution is now a guaranteed 78 picometers at 0.3 eV energy resolution.
Enhanced 25-mm and 50-mm lenses from Navitar Inc. are specifically designed for short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) cameras. The lenses function in the wavelengths of 500 nm to 1700 nm, with 90% +/- 5% transmission across the range.
Smarter traffic systems create better cities. IBM worked with the City of Stockholm to implement smart toll systems that cut gridlock by 20% and saved the citizens both time and money.
Rated for 10,000,000 cycles, the High Cycle Valve from MKS Instruments Inc. greatly increases system uptime thanks to a new formed stainless steel bellows prevents outgassing, virtual leaks and particle entrapment.
Dontech Therma Klear transparent heaters provide the warmth necessary to extend the operating temperature of liquid crystal displays (LCDs) in cold environments (e.g., from 0° to below -40°C) and for the anti-fog, anti-icing, and de-icing of optics and optical camera, sensor and display assemblies.
The design of InteLiDrives Inc.’s Planar ServoRing rotary table PSR 300 was optimized to minimize stage height. The low profile of the stage reduces total system working height. Angular contact bearings are used to maximize performance with respect to wobble, moment stiffness and friction.
Thermo Fisher Scientific has recently announced the release of the Orion ROSS Ultra Glass Triode. Iit provides precise pH and temperature measurements with the convenience of using one electrode.

Engineers just installed six new wheels on the Curiosity rover, and rotated all six wheels at once on July 9, 2010. This milestone marked the first in a series of "tune ups" to get the rover ready for a drive in the clean room where it is being assembled at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. Curiosity is the centerpiece of NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission, which is expected to launch in late 2011, and touch down wheels-first in summer 2012.
NuSil Technology, a manufacturer of silicone materials for the solar, photonics, electronics and aerospace industries, has recently launched two clear silicone adhesives for solar module assemblies. These adhesives are suitable for applications subject to harsh environments, such as high-power LEDs or satellites.
KIN-TEK’s new FlexStream SD is a gas dilution module designed to work with the FlexStream System. In the SD module, a variable portion of primary gas mixture from one or more FlexStream permeation modules is split off and re-diluted with matrix gas to create lower concentration mixtures.
Sonic Air Systems, Inc. has announced the availability of the Sonic COOL-AIR In-line Air Cooler, which delivers precisely controlled air temperatures from Sonic’s line of pressure blowers and high velocity air knife systems.
Astrobiology is the study of the origin, evolution, distribution, and future of life in the universe. The Goddard Center for Astrobiology and the NASA Astrobiology Institute focus on this amazing field through research, experimentation, and work with scientists from all over the world. In...
NASA's Office of the Chief Technologist will complement the technology development activities within NASA's Mission Directorates, leveraging synergies between them, and delivering forward-reaching technology solutions for future NASA science and exploration missions, and significant national needs.
