Objective: "This proposal is the continuation of the already realized Reflectometry and Shadow Casting work from the first part of the CleanSky/BLADE Program for the in-flight measurement of local wing surface deformations.
It considers laser propagation safety and explains standard test material preparation for standoff optical-based detection system evaluation; explores explosives detection using deep ultraviolet native fluorescence, Raman spectroscopy, laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy, reflectometry, and hyperspectral imaging; examines photodissociation followed by laser-induced fluorescence, photothermal methods, cavity-enhanced absorption spectrometry, and short-pulse laser-based techniques; and describes the detection and recognition of explosives using terahertz-frequency spectroscopic techniques.
The new technique, which was developed by Rahman and his son, Aunik, uses terahertz reflectometry, in which a beam of terahertz-frequency radiation is fired onto the paint.
The 80 papers consider such topics as combining color constancy and gamma correction for image enhancement, haptic guidance using primitives for executing virtual robotic tasks, a neighborhood hybrid structure for optimizing mechanical properties of a microalloyed steel based on its chemical composition, the robust fractional digital control of a first-order plus integrator process, an experimental platform of a physical model for a quadrotor helicopter, a simulation model to solve the forward problem in acoustic reflectometry, and three basic geometries of rings containing microstrip antennas.
This automated measurement uses a combination of time-domain reflectometry (TDR) and frequency-domain reflectometry (FDR) to display a graphical depiction (through a simple wiring diagram) of the location and length of bridged taps and the end of the cable.
The team can also undertake complex specialist tests such as motion thermography, reflectometry and environmental and stress testing, as well as high speed imaging.
Examples of specific topics include the concentration of hydroxyl groups on glass surfaces and their effect on the structure of silane deposits, characterization of silane pretreatment for organic coatings on copper, hydrothermal degradation of hydrophobic organosilane films determined by neutron reflectometry, water absorption and transport in bis-amino silane film, chromate-free silane-containing primer technology, zinc phosphate as an effective anticorrosion pigment in silane-based waterborn primers, application of nanosols to improve functional properties of p-aramide fabrics used for bullet-proof vests, and photocatalytic titania derived by sol-gel technique for textile application.
The researchers studied these multilayer stacks using a technique known as polarized neutron reflectometry, in which a beam of neutrons is bounced off the stacks.
Laboratory spectroscopic reflectometry is a niche market within the surface metrology market.
Neutron reflectometry is a new technique in which a reflected beam of neutrons is used to reveal the composition and measure the thickness of very thin layers of materials without destroying them.
1980), time domain reflectometry (TDR) has become the most widely accepted indirect technique used for soil water content sensing.
