Paper Airplane Can Be Controlled by Smartphone

POWERUP 3.0

The most fun childhood activities while playing paper airplane with friends, ranging from paper folding to catch that plane together. Almost all the children playing paper airplane was even kids racing to make a paper airplane fly a tough time. It seems that these activities were gradually abandoned seen the development of increasingly advanced technology. However, this one technological innovation allows us to reminisce with paper airplane. Read more

Measuring Absolute Temperature Made Absolutely Easy

k-Space Associates, a 25-year old company that supplies tools for monitoring nearly all thin-film deposition processes in manufacturing and research, including MBE, MOCVD, PLD, PVD, sputtering, and evaporation, offers an easy to use and non-contact tool that measures absolute temperature.

Through the analysis of the spectral radiation profile, kSA SpectraTemp can gauge absolute temperature without prior temperature calibration or knowledge of the material’s emissivity.
The kSA SpectraTemp can be used to determine the absolute temperature of a wide variety of materials, such as semiconductor wafers, metals, and ceramics. As a result of employing a solid-state spectrometer, data acquisition is fast and real-time temperature measurement is obtained.

The kSA SpectraTemp can also be used to calibrate other temperature measurement devices, including standard infrared pyrometers.
