    A photodiode and data acquisition card whose sampling clock is synchronized to the repetition rate of a laser are used to measure the energy of each laser pulse. Simple analysis of the data yields the noise spectrum from very low frequencies up to half the repetition rate and quantifies the...

    We have designed and constructed a new flat-field-type slit-less soft x-ray emission spectrometer that enables high detection efficiency and high energy resolution in the energy range of 250–1000 eV. The energy resolution is optimized in the C 1s and O 1s regions, where the maximum energy...

    We propose and demonstrate a dynamic point spread function (PSF) for single and multiphoton fluorescence microscopy. The goal is to generate a PSF whose shape and size can be maneuvered from highly localized to elongated one, thereby allowing shallow-to-depth excitation capability during active...

    The Bureau of Mines has designed a 20-l test chamber for the explosibility testing of dusts, gases, and their mixtures. It can be used to measure lean and rich limits of flammability, explosion pressures and rates of pressure rise, minimum ignition energies, minimum oxygen concentrations for...
