  • Why are we monitoring nutrients at different depths?

    Recently, LG Sonic introduced the MPC-Lab, an innovative monitoring buoy that can monitor algae, physico-chemical variables, and even nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus in near real-time and at different depths in a body of water. Combined with our other monitoring tools, this system offers a unique way to detect the spatial and temporal patterns of nutrient concentrations which play a ...

  • Secrets of success and failure in commercialising US government R&D laboratory technologies: a structured case study approach

    With the end of the Cold War, the US government started encouraging defence conversion and commercialisation activities. Although currently highly contested in the political arena for their tangible short-term economic benefits, these activities have fostered multiple high-tech government-university-industry partnerships and helped shape regions of emerging clusters of high-tech entrepreneurship, ...

  • Measurement Science and Technology Paper - Potential for improved radiation thermometry measurement uncertainty through implementing a primary scale in an industrial laboratory

    A primary temperature scale requires realising a unit in terms of its definition. For high temperature radiation thermometry in terms of the International Temperature Scale of 1990 this means extrapolating from the signal measured at the freezing temperature of gold, silver or copper using Planck's radiation law. The difficulty in doing this means that primary scales above 1000 °C require ...
