  • High-powered laser for scientists

    STFC’s Central Laser Facility develops £10 million laser system Data analytics expert Tessella has helped the UK’s Central Laser Facility (CLF), part of The Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), in its development of an advanced high-powered laser, created to help aid R&D in the scientific community. CLF was tasked to develop a laser system for the HiLASE ...

  • Laser induced release of encapsulated noble gas in SCHOTT receiver

    Thermo oil based parabolic through technology is limited to operational temperatures close to 400°C due to the decomposition of the heat transfer fluid and accompanying hydrogen permeation into the vacuum annulus. The presence of hydrogen in the annulus leads to an increase of thermal losses and a decrease in thermal efficiency. In order to overcome this so-called ‘hot tube ...

  • Cancer stem–like cells photothermolysed by gold nanorod–mediated near–infrared laser irradiation

    Several studies have recently identified CD133 as a marker of cancer stem–like cells (CSCs) for various tumours. Such findings make CD133 a potential molecular target for tumour–selective therapeutic approach. In this study, fluorescence–tagged CD133 monoclonal antibody (anti–CD133) was conjugated to gold nanorods (GNRs), which are one of the anisotropic nanomaterials that can absorb ...

  • High energy challenges

    The UK’s Central Laser Facility (CLF), part of the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), has recently developed an advanced high-powered laser, created to help research and development in the scientific community. CLF was tasked with developing a laser system for the HiLASE research facility, and Tessella (an international analytics and data science consulting services company) ...

  • Greenhouse gas emissions and reduction studies using a portable TDL gas monitor

    Boreal Laser's GasFinder is a portable open path gas monitor based on laser technology. GasFinder is uniquely suitable for studies of greenhouse gas emissions. It is specific to the gas of interest, provides one second response and has a broad dynamic range. GasFinder is permanently calibrated and is very small and light (less than 5kg). Alignment is easy and stable. No on-site electronic tuning ...

  • Optical encoders and LiDAR scanning

    Overview Modern technology is taken for granted; a driver only needs to type a destination into a SATNAV system and step-by-step instructions, journey distance and duration, driving conditions and hazards, as well as alternative routes, instantly appear. In order to work, highly accurate and up-to-date maps are required of an entire country's road ...

  • Isolation and characterization of carnocyclin a, a novel circular bacteriocin produced by carnobacterium maltaromaticum UAL307

    Carnobacterium maltaromaticum UAL307, isolated from fresh pork, exhibits potent activity against a number of gram-positive organisms, including numerous Listeria species. Three bacteriocins were isolated from culture supernatant, and using matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry and Edman sequencing, two of ...

  • Implementation of the Waste Minimisation Hierarchy - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Television Victoria Pty Ltd

     The three R’s - reduce, reuse and recycle - was the battlecry used by the Ballarat-based Television Victoria in its fight against waste. Through simple but effective waste minimisation measures, the company achieved its goal of reducing waste production by 50% within only four months, two months ahead of time. The company has shown that while recycling is the most commonly used method of ...


  • Hydrogen Chloride Analyzer (HCl, H2O)

    LGR's Hydrogen Chloride Analyzer (HCl, H2O) provides sensitive measurements of HCl in ambient air or in industrial process flows (e.g., coal and cement exhaust streams) with extremely high precision and sensitivity. No longer do you have to spend a lot of money or wait a long time to measure HCl with extremely high sensitivity – LGR's HCl Analyzer provides measurements every second with ...

  • Nitrogen Trifluoride now required in GHG protocol greenhouse gas emissions inventories

    Scientific understanding of the chemicals that contribute to climate change is constantly improving. So, too, is the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHGP), as we work to keep abreast of such advances and ensure that they are reflected in our tools and standards. One recent example concerns the greenhouse gas (GHG) nitrogen trifluoride (NF3), a chemical that is released ...

  • Advancing Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Technology

    Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are a mainstay of the subsea survey industry. With unparalleled speed and accuracy in deep water, they have long been the obvious choice for surveys in inhospitable, deep environments. In light of the current downturn in the oil and gas market and the increasing visibility of autonomous vehicles, such as self-driving cars, AUV technology is poised to break ...

  • Award Winning Large Diameter FRP Stacks For Magnesium Extraction Plant

    When Fabricated Plastics Limited of Maple (Toronto), Ontario, Canada was awarded a contract by a world renowned Mining/Metallurgical Company, it proved to be a chance to exhibit their engineering excellence in several ways. First they had to demonstrate that their proposed use of Fibreglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) was clearly the material of choice in competition with other materials. Then they ...

  • Creative Service Solutions - Case Study

    A paper mill in Finland suffered the complete failure of a large four-stage vacuum blower. Creative problem solving resulted in a repair time of only seven days. The maintenance team built a functional blower by using parts from three outdated machines. The combined efforts of Sulzer and of the paper mill’s own engineers made it possible. The paper industry has to cope with a ...

  • No Place Is Too Far

    The remote location of hydropower stations is often a great challenge when major repair work is necessary. The refurbishment of a large generator in the Scottish Highlands shows how Sulzer finds cost-effective service solutions even in places miles from nowhere. Much of the UK hydroelectric capacity was built during the 1950s. These installations have performed extremely well, especially ...

  • Rainbow Environmental Services aims for Zero Waste with CP Group and Siemens

    Chase Clark wants to be a recycler with Rainbow Environmental Services when he grows up. The three-year-old boy loves nothing more than watching the collection trucks roll out of Rainbow’s Huntington Beach, California Material Recovery Facility (MRF) early in the morning. “Most of the drivers have gotten to know Chase, and they’ll honk their horns and wave on their way out for ...
