    Currently, most plastic products are manufactured using injection molding machines, where the product quality largely depends on the injection force. In a typical injection molding machines force control system, force information from the machine environment is obtained by a force sensor. However, these sensors have a few disadvantages in terms of signal noise, sensor cost, and narrow bandwidth, a... View full abstract»

    Vacuum tubes exploit the thermionic emission of electrons, which was first observed in 1880 by Thomas Alva Edison (18471931) and his engineers while testing incandescent light bulbs with carbon filaments. After installing the first commercial power stations and distribution systems, Edison went back and detected the current emitted by the hot filament that was received at a plate electrode. Edison...
