Kepler's supernova came from young, metal-rich star, UT Arlington researcher finds

The supernova observed by Johannes Kepler in 1604, known as “Kepler’s supernova,” came from a relatively young star that was rich in metals, according to research published by The Astrophysical Journal Letters and co-authored by a UT Arlington assistant professor.

Blame it on the Rain (from Saturn's Rings)

A new study tracks the "rain" of charged water particles into the atmosphere of Saturn and finds there is more of it and it falls across larger areas of the planet than previously thought.

Did UA Mars Camera Find Lost Spacecraft?

Hardware from a Soviet spacecraft that went silent only seconds after making the first successful soft landing on Mars in 1971 might appear in images taken by the HiRISE camera aboard NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.

Notre Dame astrophysicist discovers planets similar to Earth

Researchers for the first time have identified Earth-sized planets within the habitable zone of a Sun-like star. Images of the star taken by University of Notre Dame astrophysicist Justin Crepp rule out alternative explanations of the data, confirming that five planets orbit Kepler-62, with two located in the habitable zone.

Strange new bursts of gamma-rays point to a new way to destroy a star

A team led by the University of Warwick has pinpointed a new type of exceptionally powerful and long-lived cosmic explosion, prompting a theory that they arise in the violent death throes of a supergiant star.

World’s First emICCD Camera Delivers Single Photon Sensitivity and Subnanosecond Time Resolution

The PI-MAX® 4 camera combines the advantages of intensifiers (i.e., ultrashort, subnanosecond exposure times) and the benefits of EMCCDs (i.e., linear gain and high quantum efficiency) to provide single-photon sensitivity and quantitative performance for scientific imaging and spectroscopy applications.

AVT presents cameras for scientific imaging at Laser World of Photonics

In keeping with the motto “Scientific Solutions", Allied Vision Technologies will present its offering of high-performance digital cameras for scientific imaging at Laser World of Photonics. From May 13 to16 2013, visitors to Messe München can discover the latest in camera technology at the AVT booth.

MINIATURE, HIGH-SPEED BOARD LEVEL CAMERA WITH FASTEST VGA SENSOR

Equipped with the lightning-fast CMV300 VGA sensor from CMOSIS, Baumer’s new MXG03 board level camera delivers very high frame rates up to 250 frames/s, can be integrated into extremely small spaces and keeps pace with the fastest industry applications. The camera uses a flex print to connect the sensor and system board, which allows the camera to fit easily into almost any mechanical design.

Biological transistor enables computing within living cells, study says

Bioengineers have developed a biological transistor made from DNA and RNA that allows them to compute inside a cell to study or reprogram what happens in a living system

Canon’s new CR-2 Plus AF digital non-mydriatic retinal camera features four automatic functions, delivers improved operability

Canon’s new CR-2 Plus AF digital non-mydriatic retinal camera, successor to the well-received CR-2 Plus (released in October 2011), enables examinations without the use of pupil-dilating eye drops. Incorporating a dedicated digital SLR camera unit, the device makes possible high-quality imaging performance despite its compact, lightweight body design.

Patterning graphene with DNA

Folded DNA templates allow researchers to precisely cut out graphene shapes, which could be used in electronic circuits.

Aircraft Sensors without Batteries or Cables

An idea from EADS and Vienna University of Technology is taking off: in a joint project, Energy Harvester Modules suitable for aircrafts have been tested, which should supply sensor nodes with electrical power in the future.

STANDEX-MEDER ANNOUNCES KT SERIES OF HIGH ISOLATION REED RELAYS FOR SURFACE OR THROUGH-HOLE MOUNTING

The KT Series is ideal for use in green applications, such as photovoltaic technology or hybrid vehicles. It is particularly helpful in measuring isolation resistance across several components in a solar energy system prior to grid connection, preventing injury or further current leakages.

Stanford scientists calculate the carbon footprint of grid-scale battery technologies

The fossil fuel required to build grid-scale batteries could negate some of the environmental benefits of new solar and wind farms, say Stanford scientists.

Lockheed Martin Powers on the First GPS III Satellite

The GPS III program will affordably replace aging GPS satellites, while improving capability to meet the evolving demands of military, commercial and civilian users. GPS III satellites will deliver better accuracy and improved anti-jamming power while enhancing the spacecraft’s design life and adding a new civil signal designed to be interoperable with international global navigation satellite systems.
