MilliWave Electromagnetic Technology Attracts R&D 100 Award

August 2006
Congratulations to ETD's SK Sundaram for his R&D 100 Award for MilliWave Thermal Analyzers (MTA). SK shares this award with researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Savannah River National Laboratory. This instrument uses millimeter-wave electromagnetic radiation to measure the temperature, amount of energy emitted, and physical change of materials, processes and systems. The MTA has the ability to collect real-time measurements and function in extreme environments, such as high temperatures, that normal thermal analyzers could not withstand. Congratulations, SK!
