Strainmeter Helps NASA Identify Continental Drift

TEGAM 1949-0001 ratio transformer TEGAM Geneva, OH 440-466-6100 www.tegam.com The EarthScope Project is an undertaking funded by the National Science Foundation in partnership with the United States Geological Survey and NASA to characterize the geology of North America, including continental drift caused by earthquake faults. Capturing the slow movement (which in some areas happens over centuries) can be done by measuring strain. Capturing strain (the deformation caused by stress) also can highlight areas that are moving faster along a fault relative to other areas.

2007: The Year in Technology

In 2007, we focused on the global climate, and as gas prices soared, more novel technologies emerged in the development of alternative fuel and power sources. Once again, electronics and computers became smaller, faster, and cheaper, thanks to advances in nano-engineering and alternative battery technologies. Homeland security continued to be a focus of research and development in new ways to protect ourselves and our soldiers. And a number of breakthroughs in the medical field brought the promise of revolutionary new diagnostic and treatment options.

Techs of the Week

A light-emitting diode (LED) array, formed on a substrate using an etching method, is shaped to produce uniform light intensity and high production yield. A terrace formed under the light-emitting edge surface together with the grooves protects the LED from handling-induced damage during mounting because it is formed in a portion recessed from the substrate's edge. The substrate's surface in front of the light-emitting edge is formed in multiple stages so that a light beam is not reflected by the substrate's surface. This process produces an improved semiconductor light-emitting device that emits a uniform, high-density light. Click here for more info.

Tech Needs of the Week

A company seeks microwavable packaging that produces authentic grilled foods in a home microwave oven with typical microwave food preparation times and convenience (3-8 minutes). All materials must be generally recognized as safe for contact with human food and withstand temperatures from -40 degrees to 450 degrees F. Possible solutions include glass or ceramic coatings, metallized polymer, or phase-change material. The package should be disposable; ability to use the packaging to serve the food would be a plus.
