A Gating Grid Driver for Time Projection Chamber

Executive SummaryTime Projection Chambers (TPCs) are uniquely useful in analyzing nuclear reactions and resulting particles. These devices rely on fast gating systems to allow or deny entry of particles into the detection area; without which they would not be functional. MSU researchers have developed a novel gating grid driver system for TPCs. Due...

A Remedial Action Tool with Real-Time Stability Screening for Power System Operators

Executive SummaryIndependent system operators who control the North American electric power grid need real-time or near real-time remedial action screening tools. Current systems do not allow system operators to evaluate and respond to incidents, such as downed powerlines or power generators coming offline, in real-time. This can and often does lead...

AFM Control System for Video Rate Imaging and Manipulation

Executive SummaryAtomic force microscopes (AFM), are a very high-resolution type of scanning probe microscope. Imaging speeds, however, are limited by the inertia and resonances of the scanning systems and of the AFM cantilever. It is desirable to increase the scan speed of applications without the need to make physical changes to the dynamics of the...
