  • Australian scientists develop device to measure cell-level radiation

    Australian scientists have developed a miniature radiation detector, the size of a human cell nucleus. The detector is designed to accurately measure the amount of energy deposited by ionising radiation within a human cell nucleus allowing better understanding of radiation effects on humans, ANSTO’s on-line magazine Velocity reported this week. The technology was developed in a collaboration ...

  • New SR25 pyranometer takes solar radiation measurement to the next level

    When measuring solar radiation professionally, measurement accuracy and data availability are key. Data availability is reduced by dew and frost deposition on the domes of traditional pyranometers, whether these are ventilated or not. Hukseflux Thermal Sensors has developed an ISO 9060 secondary standard pyranometer with sapphire outer dome and internal heater that solves these ...

  • Path of radiation leak investigated

    Workers at Japan’s quake-hit nuclear plant are using dye to try to trace the route of highly radioactive water flowing from a reactor into the sea. The source of the leak was identified at the weekend as a 20cm (8in) crack in a concrete pit at reactor 2. Earlier efforts to plug the hole using a highly absorbent polymer failed. Meanwhile, the plant’s operator Tepco says it has ...

  • Understanding Tungsten Radiation Shielding

    Before we start discussing tungsten radiation shield, it is necessary to know what the radiation is and how does it affect our life. Radiation simply means emission of particular type of rays from an object. Radiation from different devices has different effect on human body. For example, you are not going to have any problem with ...


  • Measurements on the Move

    Performing noise source identification on moving vehicles is now an easier process with Brüel & Kjær’s Moving Source Option. Unlike traditional Beamforming kits, the Moving Source software follows a mobile target, instead of focusing on a single point. It tracks linear movement parallel to a planar microphone array and enables speed-position calculation from a radar signal, ...

  • Italian Manufacturer Soluzione Solare presents a new solarimeter to measure solar radiation at the trade fair Intersolar Europe

    The Italian company Soluzione Solare has developed the new solarimeter Litemeter - a tool for measuring solar radiation and to determine whether a solar system is performing at correct levels. The new product is suited for photovoltaic systems that use small data loggers. It consists of a crystalline silicon solar cell and electronics, encapsulated in a UV resistant aluminium case.
