Measuring count rates free from correlated noise in digital silicon photomultipliers
Abstract : The characterization of nuisance parameters in digital silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) is important to their understanding and future development. Methods able to distinguish the types of events are necessary ...
Study of the microstructural control of Ba(Mg1/3Ta2/3)O3 perovskite thermal barrier coating deposited by solution precursor plasma spray
Abstract: Inductively-coupled plasma spraying was used to deposit Ba(Mg1/3Ta2/3)O3 (BMT) on a titanium alloy substrate. By selecting the appropriate spraying parameter, it was possible to tune the BMT coating microstructure ...
Vertical grain and columnar structured Ba(Mg1/3Ta2/3)O3 thermal barrier coating deposited by solution precursor plasma spray
Abstract: Thermal barrier coatings (TBC) with a lamellar structure are more susceptible to erosion than fully dense ceramics and electron beam physical vapor deposited (EB-PVD) coatings. This paper presents a distinctive ...
Using confocal microscopy and digital image correlation to measure local strains around a chip corner and a crack front
Abstract: In a flip chip package, the chip corner areas which are embedded in the underfill material are often critical to the damage initiation, since a stress concentration usually exists at these locations. A high ...
Thermal plasma synthesis of Li2S nanoparticles for application in lithium-sulfur batteries
Abstract : Inductively-coupled thermal plasma processes were used to produce nanosized Li2S. Prior to the syntheses, the feasibility of forming Li2S was first evaluated using FactSage by considering the phase diagrams of ...
