  1. Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) for Additive Manufacturing
    10/22/2014

    In direct metal laser sintering, a fiber laser draws onto the surface of atomized powder to build production-quality metal parts. The laser welds the metal powder into a solid. After the first laser draw and the powder’s transition into a solid, a blade adds a fresh layer of powder and repeats the process until the part is formed.

  8. Cherenkov Emission Imaging And Spectroscopy Utilizing Isotopes And A Linear Accelerator
    10/17/2014

    There are linear accelerators (LINACs) employed in radiation oncology that produce radiation in pulsed microseconds-long bursts, generated by the accelerator waveguide. By taking advantage of a LINAC’s inherent pulsed operation, time-gated detection of Cherenkov radiation is possible, significantly improving the ratio of signal to ambient light. Recently, a research group at Dartmouth College and Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire led by Dr. Brian Pogue has investigated fluorescence and absorption spectroscopy methods using pulsed LINAC-induced CES2, under ambient room lighting conditions. An overview of some of their work is provided in this application note.

  9. How To Assess Thermal Camera Range For Site Design
    10/17/2014

    When laying out a site design for surveillance using currently marketed uncooled thermal cameras, it is important to understand the coverage capability of the cameras under evaluation in terms of field of view and range. Accurately gauging range performance from the onset of the site design may allow one to avoid unintended and pricey rework costs later. The following white paper explores the various determinants that are needed for thermal camera range capability assessment.
