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.

New Tool for MOCVD Carrier Characterization

k-Space Associates introduced the kSA Emissometer, its newest addition to an extensive line of in-situ, in-line, and ex-situ thin-film analysis tools for semiconductor, surface sciences, and photovoltaic industries. The new tool provides MOCVD fabs with essential wafer carrier characterization, such as emissivity uniformity and defect identification.

MOCVD fabs usually rely on subjective human tests to inspect the quality of wafer carriers. The kSA Emissometer has the advantage of high resolution carrier emissivity mapping and detection of defects and microcracks that aren’t visible to the human eye. This tool provides full quantitative carrier maps in 10 minutes.

The kSA Emissometer also provides fabs with systematic carrier data that can be integrated into their quality control processes as well as a go-no-go decision on carrier use and quantitative determination of the carrier emissivity, allowing for temperature set-point adjustments for individual carriers.

First International Airport in the World Uses Solar Panels

First International Airport in the World Uses Solar Panels

Awareness of environmentally friendly energy use today is increasingly flourishing. Accompanied with the low price of renewable energy sources such as solar panels one of which also contribute to the renewable energy campaign. Example one concrete step movement use of renewable energy sources conducted by Cochin International Airport in southern India. Seventh busiest airport in India was crowned as the first international airport which is 100% of its electricity needs met by solar panels.

To meet the electricity needs of the airport, the airport management pointed to a German company, Bosch, to build a solar power plant on vacant land measuring 45 acres located near the international cargo terminal of the airport. With a total of approximately 10,000 solar panels are used, this self-contained power plant capable of supplying 48,000 to 50,000 kilowatts of electricity to meet the electricity needs of the airport each day. Even the amount of energy is still surplus and still able to support the needs of the electricity network in the area around the airport.

Construction of solar power plants this independent cost US $ 9.3 million, equivalent to 121 billion rupiah. With the cost of the airport management hoped would never buy electricity from its India up to six years into the future. In addition, the solar power plants contributed to reducing carbon dioxide emissions of 300,000 metric tons of coal-fired power plants of up to twenty-five years into the future.

Recent discovery dwarf planet in orbit farthest So Far

Recent discovery dwarf planet in orbit farthest So Far

Since Pluto is no longer acknowledges the real planet, has several times found “dwarf planet” Pluto have similar orbits beyond Neptune. Dwarf planet is a term for a planet that does not meet the third criterion of three planets criteria set by the International Astronomical Union.

One interesting thing is that apparently in addition to the dwarf planet Pluto, beyond the orbit of the planet Neptune lies a giant orbit space contains many objects that scientists have nicknamed him the Kuiper Belt. The Kuiper Belt is an orbit of ice in which there are few objects of space that has been identified by scientists as a dwarf planet, like Eris, Haumea, Makemake, Sedna, Quaoar, 2007 OR10, and of course Pluto which has been first discovered in 1930 by Clyde W. Tombaugh. Even recently identified a new dwarf planet that orbits super far exceeds other dwarf planets that travel is about 700 Earth years. Planet is still named interim RR245 2015 is estimated to have a diameter of only 700 kilometers, there are still much smaller than the dwarf planet Pluto has a diameter of 2371 km.

The discovery of the dwarf planet 2015 RR245 which was first identified in February, is one of the results of surveys, titled Outer Space Solar System Origins Survey (Ossos). Ossos so far been detected at least 500 space objects in the Kuiper Belt Area. However new RR245 2015 are identified as a dwarf planet. Astronomers will continue to observe planets that orbit will reach its closest distance to the sun in the year 2096, in order to obtain data that is more accurate.

Innovations from General Electric

Innovations from General Electric

A quite revolutionary innovation made by electricity giant General Electric, known as GE. GE is currently conducting research to build a mini power plant the size of a desk, but was able to support at least 10,000 households. Mini turbine is mentioned only a size ten times smaller than the steam turbine with the same energy output capabilities.

A unique feature of this turbine is the driving fluid are not uncommon. Not water vapor, not wind nor water! The turbine uses the fluid carbon dioxide as an energy transfer medium. Carbon dioxide is heated to 700 ° C at very high pressure to supercritical prior to entry into the turbine. Carbon dioxide out of the turbine is cooled and the pressure is increased again before going back past the same cycle.

Technology use of carbon dioxide into various key advantages of this turbine. First advantage is their small size, outsize steam turbines up to ten times smaller. From these advantages alone deliver the turbine further advantage to the startup much faster than the steam turbine. Turbine CO2 only takes one to two minutes to reach full rotational speed, compared with the steam turbine which takes up to half an hour to turn it on. In terms of efficiency, this new type of turbine is able to achieve up to 50% thermal efficiency, which is certainly far enough steam leaving the turbine efficiency is only able to achieve 45% only.

To date, still building a small-scale CO2 turbines capable of generating power up to 10 Megawatt. But planned to be built turbines with power up to 33 Megawatt, power highly enough to support approximately 10,000 households or practically equivalent to a fairly large city. Explained that the main thermal energy sources that will be used later is solar thermal, nuclear or even burning. Technology uses molten salt heat storage will also be used so that the heat from the source can be stored for use at a difficult time as a heat source in winter.

Solar Panel Technology

Solar Panel Technology

A revolution in technology alternative back unsolved. A group of mechanical and Australian scientists have announced that they will soon be marketing a new technology in producing solar panels. The technology they create does not require a complicated way to produce solar panels, all they need is a printer! Yes, a printing machine that will quickly and cheaply can print solar panels onto the surface of any object, especially plastic! Naturally this innovation will decisively, sooner or later, push down the price of conventional solar panels are quite expensive because the manufacturing process is more complicated.

Research conducted by a combination of mechanical and scientists of this has been done down at least the last few years. One senior researcher mentioned that this new technology can easily print solar panels directly on the sheet of plastic or other material. In fact, it can also be printed directly onto electronic equipment sorts of laptops and smartphones, so they get a renewable energy source at any time.

We print it out on a plastic sheet is approximately equal to the process of printing banknotes. Connect it with other electronic equipment as well as easy as installing the battery. It’s very cheap! The interface is also quite different from the conventional silicon solar panels. He explained in more detail that the printed solar panels will appear transparent, thus making it very suitable to be applied to building homes and buildings.

Our next task is to improve the efficiency of the panel. We should be able to create a ‘printing ink’ which is able to absorb more solar energy. We are sure to be able to do in the next few years.

SpaceX Red Dragon

SpaceX Red Dragon

SpaceX, a private company engaged in the assembly of the spacecraft is planning to send a spacecraft named Red Dragon to Mars in early 2018. The company owned by Elon Musk has said openly will carry out further Mars exploration involving humans and no longer using robots someday. Although it has been stated that the company did not specify how many spacecraft that will be sent to Mars associated with this mission.

The spacecraft will be flown in from SpaceX to Mars, using the booster rocket Falcon Heavy. Falcon Heavy rocket is a newer version than the previous version of the Falcon 9 rocket that will first be tested for a launch capsule heading to Mars with no humans involved in it. When launching the capsule with heavy payloads landed well on Mars, then SpaceX will launch involving humans in it. In addition, if SpaceX is able to do that, then SpaceX was the first private airlines were able to land a spacecraft on another planet. The aircraft also will be used as a residence by the astronauts who went to Mars. SpaceX company also said that the Red Dragon is a spacecraft weighing 6,000 kg before sliding out of the earth. Then when it is outside the Earth’s atmosphere, some parts like a rocket booster will be released from the main spacecraft. Then one by one the other parts that are not needed will be released until finally landing on Mars successfully done so only in the form of capsules. At the time of landing is successful, the capsule has a weight of 3000 kg.

The landing propulsion machinery is a machine that allows landings efficiently to deliver cargo in bulk to the surface of Mars. This is one way that NASA still does not know how to do it. If not using the engine driving the landing capsule is definitely potentially suffered severe damage. It is caused by a very different atmosphere between the Earth possessed with Mars. The atmosphere on Earth thicker, thus allowing the capsule to be crash landed more slowly. Mars has only a much thinner atmosphere than Earth, so that the capsule would have the potential to experience a violent collision with the surface of Mars. To prevent conflicts, the driving engine landings can be controlled very necessary. Read more
