1. A four-pixel single-photon pulse-position array fabricated from WSi superconducting nanowire single- photon detectors
Topic: Sensors
Published: 2/3/2014
Authors: Varun Boehm Verma, Robert Daniel Horansky, Francesco Marsili, Jeffrey Stern, Matthew Shaw, Adriana Eleni Lita, Richard P Mirin, Sae Woo Nam
Abstract: We demonstrate a scalable readout scheme for an infrared single-photon pulse-position camera consisting of WSi superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors. For an N {multiply} N array, only 2 {multiply} N wires are required to obtain the pos ...

2. Greedy Backpressure Routing for Smart Grid Sensor Networks
Topic: Sensors
Published: 1/13/2014
Author: Hamid Gharavi
Abstract: In this paper, a greedy backpressure routing protocol is proposed for multigate mesh networks. This protocol evaluates the greedy backpressure metric (GBM) value of mesh points and routes packets in the direction of the steepest gradient. The GBM val ...

3. Dielectrophoretic Trapping of P19 Cells on Indium Tin Oxide based Microelectrode Arrays
Topic: Sensors
Published: 11/8/2013
Authors: Aveek Gangopadhyay, Saugandhika Minnikanti, Darwin R Reyes-Hernandez, Mulpuri V. Rao, Nathalia Peixoto
Abstract: A microfabricated device comprised of a microelectrode array (MEA) and a microfluidic channel is presented here for the purpose of trapping cells using positive dielectrophoresis (DEP). Transparent indium tin oxide (ITO) electrodes are patterned in a ...

4. Evaluating Feedback Systems for Residential Building Energy Monitoring
Topic: Sensors
Published: 8/10/2013
Authors: Wenqi Guo, Tania Ullah, MengChu Zhou
Abstract: Rising global energy demand, increasing electricity prices, and the limitation of natural resources have led to increased interest in energy monitoring of residential buildings. Much research has been done to examine the effect of energy use feedback ...

5. Distributed Coverage Optimization in a Network of Static and Mobile Sensors
Topic: Sensors
Published: 6/17/2013
Authors: Kamran Sayrafian, Hamid Mahboubi, Jalal Habibi, Amir Aghdam
Abstract: This paper proposes efficient schemes to increase sensing coverage in a network composed of both mobile and static sensors. The proposed deployment techniques properly assign a virtual weight to every point in the sensing field, based on the infor ...

6. Experimental Study of the Thermal Impacts on Wireless Sensor Batteries
Topic: Sensors
Published: 4/10/2013
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: Wireless sensor networks are being considered for application within buildings to control various equipment in different working environments. As wireless sensors are powered by commercially available batteries, battery performance will directly affe ...

7. A titanium-nitride near-infrared kinetic inductance photon-counting detector and its anomalous electrodynamics
Topic: Sensors
Published: 10/1/2012
Authors: Martin Olof Sandberg, Fabio Cesar Da Silva, Kent D Irwin, David P Pappas, Sae Woo Nam, David Wisbey, Ben Mazin, Seth Meeker, Jonas Zmuidzinas, Henry G. Leduc
Abstract: We demonstrate single-photon counting at 1550 nm with titanium-nitride (TiN) microwave kinetic inductancedetectors. Full-width-at-half-maximum energy resolution of 0.4 eV is achieved. 0-, 1-, 2- photon events are resolved and shown to ...

8. Impacts of 2.4 GHz ISM Band Interference on IEEE 802.15.4 Wireless Sensor Network Reliability in Buildings
Topic: Sensors
Published: 9/9/2012
Authors: Wenqi Guo, William M Healy, Mengchu Zhou
Abstract: With the recent emergence of standards, wireless solutions are ready to be deployed in building automation networks. IEEE 802.15.4 is a standard for short range wireless networks. Its major applications fields are home and building automation, as wel ...

9. Wireless Sensor Network Performance Metrics for Building Applications
Topic: Sensors
Published: 4/1/2010
Authors: Won Suk Jang, William M Healy
Abstract: Metrics are investigated to help assess the performance of wireless sensors in buildings. Wireless sensor networks present tremendous opportunities for energy savings and improvement in occupant comfort in buildings by making data about conditions a ...

10. Ultra-high resolution alpha particle spectroscopy using calorimetry
Topic: Sensors
Published: 9/23/2008
Authors: Robert Daniel Horansky, Joel Nathan Ullom, James A Beall, Gene C Hilton, Kent D Irwin, Don Dry, Beth Hastings, Stephen Lamont, Clifford R Rudy, Michael W Rabin
Abstract: Calorimetry has been used since the late 1700?s to measure the heat output of physical processes ranging from chemical reactions to the respiration of organisms . Calorimetry is performed by measuring the temperature change caused by heat release int ...
