    Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is investigating embedded instrumentation and controls (I&C) technology for next generation nuclear power generation applications. Embedded systems encompass a wide range of configurations and technologies; we define embedding in this instance as the integration of the sensors and the control system design into the component design using a systems engineeri...

    Electronics design for magnetically sensitive applications is rarely addressed in academia, although it is a vital issue in many industries. One industry that designs and manufactures magnetically sensitive electronic products is the underground pipe and cable locating industry. In pipe and cable location applications, an ac current in the frequency range of 500 Hz to 80 kHz is sent down a pipe or... View full abstract»

    The Fukushima Disaster - On Friday, March 11, 2011, at 2:46pm (Japan Standard Time), the Tohoku region on the east coast of northern Japan experienced what would become known as the largest earthquake in the country's history at magnitude 9.0 on the Richter scale. The Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant suffered extensive and irreversible damage. Six operating units were at the site, each with a... View full abstract»

    Primary cells which convert chemical reactions to a continuous flow of electricity have been under improvement since the first battery was built hundreds of years ago, either the Baghdad Battery (circa 0 CE) or Alessandro Volta's voltaic cell (1800 CE). Designing and manufacturing improved batteries requires detailed data about their performance. Electrical measurements supply most of that data an... View full abstract»

    Aluminum electrolytic capacitors are passive electronic components that are used in almost every electronic application and affect the product's life span. The most important goal of capacitor development is to extend the lifetime of electronics by improving the basic electrical parameters of the capacitor, the equivalent serial resistance (ESR), impedance (Z), and leakage current (LC). The develo... View full abstract»
