Transformers are used throughout the world as a means of changing the AC supply voltage. However these are imperfect solutions as they have substantial no-load losses, are less efficient at both high and low loads, have significant regulation with load (and the line out follows input line changes),
Strain Gage for Highly Elastic, Low-Modulus Materials Possessing Strain Range Greater than 100 Percent
We have developed and tested a strain gage that surpasses conventional foil technology, which is limited to less than 20 percent strains. This was a significant shortcoming given that new structural components on aerospace vehicles include highly elastic, low Young's modulus materials. For example,
Sustainability-, Energy-Efficiency- and Light-Quality-improved Retrofit Solid State Lighting Ecosystem
NASA’s Langley Research Center has developed a novel method of depositing metal and metal oxide nanoparticles onto various substrates (see ACS Nano, 3(4), 871–884 ). It is rapid, scalable, and green since it does not require reducing agents or solvents.
This is no longer the age of phone calls; it is the day and age of texting, tweeting, snapchatting, and facetiming. Everyone is texting somebody, which means that at some point, people are bound to get the wrong message. If you can end a phone call before it connects,
Motor vehicle theft for the relevant parts is a multi billion industry across the world. The insertion of electronic chips into the component parts would stop this level of theft as the components chip could be codified with the engine number. Similarly,
