A wavelength measurement system for dual-line laserís radiation is described. The system is based on optoelectronic recirculation at 2 optical wavelengths with fiber-optic lightguide as a dispersion element.



Pashchenko F. F., Torshin V. V. A multifunctional transducer of physical parameters


A versatile sensor based on a new method of omnipresent electrical potential generation in a conductor placed in spiral magnetic field is examined. The circuits for practical implementation of the proposed method are developed. Some experimental relationships describing the technique of output electrical potential generation are demonstrated. Recommendations on sensor design for various physical quantities are made.



Kalinin A. P., Troshin K. Ya., Orlov A. G., Rodionov A. I. Hyperspectrometer as a monitoring and investigation system for nurning and explosion processes


A laboratory-made hyperspectrometer intended for remote sensing of reflected, scattered, and emitted light at 3 m distance is outlined. The paper shows that the developed hyperspectrometer can be effectively used for monitoring and investigation of burning and explosion processes as well as for measuring the time dependence of fluorescence during burning or explosion.



Kryshtal R. G. The analysis of volatiles with a thermoelectric cooler and SAW gas sensors without selective coatings


A simples device for component analysis of volatile chemical compounds is offered. The device is based on a ribbed structure cooled by thermoelectric cooler on the basis of Peltier element combined with a SAW gas sensor without selective coating. The design of sensor mock-up and of the measurement system with SAW sensor based on waveguide delay circuit with operating frequency 486 MHz is presented. Experimental results demonstrating the deviceís operational integrity are included.

Nikolaev I. N., Kalinina L. N., Litvinov A. V. MIS sensors for hydrogen content measurements in 10Ė4Ö102 vol. % range


New types of MIS sensors which enable direct measurements of hydrogen concentration in a wider range (up to 10 vol. %) are developed. Their application combined with specialized sampling techniques allows to measure hydrogen concentrations up to 100 vol. %. Based on these MIS sensors, a new class of hydrogen analyzers can be developed for various applications in hydrogen power engineering.
