Dynamic Capacitance Sensor Board Development
This technology is a new sensor board that converts dynamic capacitance in a sensor into an analog voltage signal. The signal created by this sensor board can then be used with any off-the-shelf wired or wireless data acquisition system. Background: Sensors are increasingly used for structural monitoring. For example, networks of hundreds of strain-measuring...

Color-Free, Thermally Reworkable Diels-Alder Epoxies with Liquid Precursors
Researchers at the University of Arizona have developed an epoxy which reverts to a liquid upon application of heat. This epoxy is colorless and contains liquid precursors, which can be mixed at room temperature, making it an ideal adhesive for art conservation. This invention solves the issue of irreversibility in epoxy adhesives. Background: Epoxies...

Using Electroluminance Technologies To Visually Indicate Building Structure Integrity
This technology addresses the issue of non-trained individuals to be able to monitor the integrity of a building. This is done by connecting a sensor to a circuit board that relays the information to an electroluminescent display module. Background: Electroluminescence is the process of applying voltage to a material until it illuminates with color....
