Physicists at UC Santa Barbara have made an important advance in quantum mechanics using a superconducting electrical circuit. The researchers showed that they could detect the quantum correlations in the results of measurements of entangled quantum bits, using a superconducting electrical circuit. The correlations are stronger than can be obtained using classical (non-quantum mechanical) physics, and according to the physicists, this illustrates that the oddities of quantum mechanics clearly extend to macroscopic systems.
Saelig Company has announced the availability of uCAM (microCAM) a new, highly integrated, compact serial camera module which can be attached to any host system that needs an economical video camera or a JPEG compressed still camera for embedded imaging applications.
BaySpec, Inc. announced the Nunavut InGaAs Camera/Detector Line enabling low light spectroscopy in the near-infrared region. Optimal cooling of the detector arrays allows for improved low-light spectral measurements, offering an improvement of >250x signal/noise performance.
Tired of carbon nanotubes? Me, too. Well, a little bit. Every day, when the editors search out the best R&D news on the web for the R&D Daily e-newsletter, it seems that carbon nanotubes and their endless variations dominates materials research news. They seem to be everywhere--even my desk calendar is full of them.
Models SA-107LN, SA-207LN, and SA-307LN servo accelerometers from Columbia Research Labs are high sensitivity, ultra low noise sensors designed for use in seismic, and low level, low frequency motion studies. The SA-107LN is a single axis unit and the SA-207LN, and SA-307LN are two and three axis units.
The Industrial Automation Group of Advantech introduced two energy efficient Unmanaged Gigabit Ethernet switches, the EKI-2725-BE and EKI-2728-BE. These new models feature an energy efficient design, resulting in 10% to 15% power savings as compared to previous models and similar models on the market.
Supercritical Fluid Technologies introduced a new series of stirred reactors for high pressure chemistry. The HPR Series Reactors have been designed for researchers who are interested in performing pressurized chemical reactions in their laboratories. Whether it is high pressure chemical synthesis or process development, the HPR Series is a unit suited for those applications.
The Macro Sensors HLR 750 Series of ¾” diameter LVDT Position Sensors play an important role in the predictive maintenance of gas turbines as part of process control systems used to monitor shell expansion and bearing vibration.
Photon announced the introduction of the USBeamPro CCD, a 12-bit CCD-based high resolution laser beam profiling system with USB 2.0 connectivity, operating under Photon’s renowned BeamProfiler Software in Microsoft Windows. It provides NIST-traceable, accurate measurements of ISO Standard laser beam profile parameters.
JM Science introduced an easy-to-use, reliable titrator that includes free download software and RS-232 cable to connect to the customer’s computer. The AQUACOUNTER COM-300A Automatic Titrator performs pH, acid/base, complexometric, redox, Karl Fischer, photometric, non-aqueous titrations, and ISE (ion-selective electrode) measurements.
Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. announced a new application note to illustrate the capabilities of its Thermo Scientific iCAP 6200 ICP spectrometer for the analysis of toxic trace elements in children’s toys. The dual-view ICP instrument offers pre-optimized sample introduction settings and analysis-ready software method templates.
