Shakhov E. K., Ashanin V. N. Functions partition: the basic principle of instrumentation improvement


The paper shows that the improvement of measuring transducers structures follow the path of partition between various elements and creating optimal conditions for solving the assigned key conversion task by each element. The functions partition principle enables the consideration of conversion processes in any measuring transducer structures independent on its classification membership from a generic methodological viewpoint. The paper is illustrated with the examples of measuring transducers with functions partition in space and time.

A digital dc meter with automatic systematic inaccuracy correction is described. The meter employs magneto-optoelectronic technique of redundant measurements using a structurally-redundant fiber-optic sensor.


Kosinsky A. V., Potomsky S. Yu., Kholomonov A. A. Single- modulator differential optoelectronic displacement transducer


Structure and operation principle of a single-modulator differential optoelectronic displacement transducer is considered. Additional elements introduced into the transducer compensate more effectively for the signal’s dc component and the error arising due to the instability of photodetector’s dark voltage. The differential transducer typically has higher conversion accuracy.

Nikolaev I.N., Litvinov A. V., Yemelin E. V. A model of MIS sensors sensitivity mechanism to gas concentration


A model of MIS sensors sensitivity to gas concentration is proposed. According to the model, the sensitivity occurs owing to the capture of gas molecules with electric dipole moments by polar traps located in the metal-insulator interface area. The model fairly reflects the available experimental data and outlines the ways to overcome problems that hamper MIS sensors application as gas analyzer sensing elements.
