  • Patent number: 10096391
    Abstract: Gamma-ray sensing probes operating under the Cerenkov effect measure the burnup of spent nuclear fuel assemblies. The probes include an optical fiber that reacts to gamma rays coming from the spent nuclear fuel assembly and emit light via the Cerenkov effect. A scatterer surrounds the optical fiber to increase the light emitting efficiency of the optical fiber by the Compton electron scattering. A collimator composed of shielding material surrounds the scatterer. The collimator has a slit groove which is open in one direction for directing the gamma rays from the spent fuel assembly to the scatterer.

  • Patent number: 8169124
    Abstract: The present invention discloses a physical/biochemical sensor using a multisized piezoelectric microcantilever resonator array which enables to quantitatively and simultaneously analyze a mass loading effect and a surface stress change effect and a manufacturing method thereof. In the physical/biochemical sensor using the multisized piezoelectric microcantilever resonator array, a plurality of piezoelectric micro-cantilever resonators having different sizes is arrayed so as to quantitatively and discriminately analyze a surface stress change as well as a sensor surface mass change induced by an adsorbed sensing-target material occurring in a sensing process. Thus, the mass loading effect and the surface stress change effect can be quantitatively and simultaneously analyzed.

  • Patent number: 7647856
    Abstract: A missile launch and guidance apparatus of a rail-shoe launching type is disclosed. In a missile adapted to be launched while moving along a rail of a launch tube, a missile launch and guidance apparatus comprises: a bushing inserted into a missile body; a shoe, one end of which is inserted into the bushing, and the other end of which is in contact with the rail; and a spring inserted between the bushing and the shoe so as to provide a separation force to the shoe against the bushing. By separating the shoe from the missile in a lateral direction of the missile launching direction by an elastic force of the spring after launching the missile, the missile launch and guidance apparatus can keep constant the gap between the missile and the launch tube rail irrespective of the behavior of the missile taking place in a launching process, and the drag and weight of the missile launched from the launch tube is reduced to thereby exhibit the maximum flight performance.
