PLASMONIC ENHANCEMENT OF MATERIAL PROPERTIES

Various plasmonic structures in the form of electrochromic optical switches are described which exhibit relatively high optical switching contrast. The switches generally include a collection of nanoslits formed in a thin electrically conductive film. An electrochromic material is disposed on the...

PLASMONIC NANOMECHANICAL SUBDIFFRACTION MOTION SENSOR

Two parallel gold surfaces are separated by a thin gap filled with a compliant dielectric, air or vacuum. The lateral extent (less than about 500nm) and the shape of the gap, form a plasmonic resonator with frequency sensitive to the gap change resulting from mechanical deformation. This nanoscale...

POLYMERIZABLE BIOMEDICAL COMPOSITION

A polymerizable biomedical composition includes a quaternary ammonium group bonded at its quaternary sites to respective groups R.sub.1, R.sub.2, R.sub.3, and R.sub.4. R.sub.1 and R.sub.2 each include a vinyl moiety such that the composition is at least bi-functional with respect to polymerization.

Position verification sensor

The position verrification sensor is a compliant device that when a measurement target is presented to it, a binary decision is output as to whether the target has been presented with in a designed tolerance of nominal. This sensor and target pairing can be used to verify repeatable positioning and...

POSITION VERIFICATION SENSOR WITH DISCRETE OUTPUT

The position verification sensor is a compliant device that when a measurement target is presented to it, a binary decision is output as to whether the target has been presented within a designed tolerance of nominal. This sensor and target pairing can be used to verify repeatable positioning and...

PROBE MODULE, METHOD FOR MAKING AND USE OF SAME

A probe module includes a mount; a cantilever disposed on the mount; an electrode disposed on the mount and opposing the cantilever; and a primary fastener disposed on the mount to mechanically separate the cantilever and the electrode at a primary distance. In the probe module, the cantilever is...
