Because many medical devices are reflective metal substrates, spectroscopic reflectometry
can often be used.
Herkelrath WN, Hamburg SP, Murphy F (1991) Automatic, real-time monitoring of soil moisture in a remote field area with time domain reflectometry
The device uses principles of acoustic reflectometry
to classify patients into five categories of risk for middle ear effusion (table 1).
Bridge BJ, Sabbury J, Habash KO, Ball AR, Hancock NH (1996) The dielectric behaviour of clay soils and its application to time domain reflectometry
Foster is known for his pioneering work on polymer interdiffusion and the development of X-ray reflectometry
, neutron reflectometry
and scanning probe microscopy techniques to study interfaces and adhesion.
A maker of process control metrology systems for the analysis of semiconductors, integrated circuits and flat panel displays, Nanometrics' systems utilize spectroscopic reflectometry
and ellipsometry, optical critical dimension technology, overlay registration, optical profilometry, and extreme dark field (EDF) imaging technology.
We report on two upgrades of our NIST/DARPA Reflectometry
Facility that have given us the ability to achieve 0.
They use time domain reflectometry
(TDR) to characterize solute transport in undisturbed, structured soils with distinctive flow properties.
Time domain reflectometry
has been in existence since World War II, and yet historically, the instrument was reserved for only large companies and higher level engineers.
These unique features allow the user to switch easily between most X-ray powder diffraction applications, including qualitative and quantitative crystalline phase identification, micro-structure and crystalline structure analysis, residual stress and texture investigations, X-ray reflectometry
In the past decade, however, there have been several reports of the use of time-domain reflectometry
(TDR) in both field and laboratory to monitor the behaviour of individual ions in soil solution, for example, total H+ and total A13+ in forest soils (Heimovaara et al.
Scientists at the NIST Center for Neutron Research (NCNR) and the Department of Surgery at Emory University in Atlanta, GA, are using phase-sensitive neutron reflectometry
to characterize the structure of a medically relevant membrane-mimetic system composed of a polyelectrolyte cushion, a terpolymer, and a self-assembled phospholipid monolayer.
