STC Catalysts, Inc. has an exclusive license from NASA Langley Research Center (LaRC) to manufacture carbon monoxide (CO) oxidation catalysts for use in carbon dioxide (CO2) laser applications. STC Catalysts, Inc. is an affiliate of Science and Technology Corporation (STC).
STC scientists and engineers who supported NASA LaRC in the development of the catalyst are co-inventors on the patents, and have received NASA awards for their efforts. STC Catalyst, Inc. is manufacturing the prototype and production units.
The image above shows an STC Catalyst for CO2 Lasers. The catalyst is coated on cordierite, has a 3 inch outer diameter, 3 inch height, and contains approximately 400 cells per square inch. Follow the link to see a close-up photograph (approx. 270Kb) of the catalyst.
KPM Analytics’ Sightline Over-Line vision inspection systems use a compact sensor that can be mounted over an existing production line to scan any item that passes underneath.
This product profile describes the properties and applications of the ProMetric® I-SC Solution Imaging Colorimeter.
The Filmetrics F20 benchtop film thickness measurement tool is a general purpose instrument for measuring thickness and refractive index.
Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
R. Bruce Weisman
AZoOptics interviews R. Bruce Weisman from Rice University in Texas, US, who has discovered fluorescence from silicon nanoparticles in cement and how it can be used to reveal early signs of damage in concrete structures.
