High-temperature displacement sensors

  • 12-Jan-2010 11:06 EST

Capacitec’s high-temperature noncontact displacement sensors are used in applications such as aircraft engine testing to measure displacement of up to 0.4 in. The sensors measure displacement within extreme temperature environments where resolution of 1 µm or better is a requirement. Operating in temperatures of up to 1000°C, Model HPC-75-V/S displacement sensors measure thermal expansion, axial expansion, and radial runout to confirm that dimensional design parameters meet specifications at extreme operating temperatures.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
Researchers from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory's Optical Sciences Division and Material Science Division have detected acoustic emissions from cracks in riveted lap joints using a distributed feedback fiber laser-acoustic emission sensor.
