elementalGEO(TM)elementalGEO(TM) - A system consisting of a charged particle beam transmit (Tx) antenna, a receiver (Rx), and set of inverse algorithms used for geophysical detection, interrogation and exploration of lossy and/or conductive media terrestrially and in space. In other words, it's powerful enough to see deep underground.
Platinum Silicide thin Films with Tailored PropertiesResearchers at Penn have developed a new way to form thin films of Pt3Si, which has substantially better mechanical properties than platinum while maintaining high electrical conductivity. Source-limited and kinetically limited solid state diffusion methods have been developed to create stochiometrically-controlled PtxSi films with a high degree of phase selectivity.
