Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Scalable aperture-combined optical telescopeCSIC and the Astrohita Foundation have developed a telescope, which comprises several optical assemblies that focus the light from a target on individual optical fibers, which are combined together in a final single optical fiber. The rest of the light is simultaneously collected in image devices, which record the field of view of each optical assembly. The gathered images are summed together to achieve a high-quality final image. These telescopes are not of interest only in the field of astronomy but also in the tracking of satellites and space junk. Industrial partners from the Astronomy, Astrophysics and telecommunications sector are being sought to collaborate through a patent licence agreement.
Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of Novosibirsk State University posted this:Novel technology of geological mapping with reduced exploration costsNovosibirsk State University (Russia) has developed a new paradigm of geological mapping of Pacific-type folded belts. It allows to improve the quality of geological mapping and to reduce the cost of geological exploration of natural resources. Exploration costs are cut down by excluding/reducing the scope of surface and subsurface exploration in unpromising areas. The university seeks for partners to sign commercial agreements, R&D agreements, and service contracts.

It uses a high-frequency and highly sensitive vector magnetometer, gamma-spectrometer, gas analyzer, as well as special software for data processing, which creates a high-precision description of the depth of occurrence and morphology of magnetic anomaly with the size of up to tens of centimeters and less. Due to this, the costs of exploration are significantly, often more than 10 times lower than using conventional methods.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Fabrication of tips for scanning probe microscopy with enhanced resolutionCSIC has developed tips for scanning probe microscopy (SPM) where an isolated nanoparticle is placed at the apex of the tip. The method allows to tailor the shape, size and composition of the nanoparticle improving the measuring capabilities of the tips. These novel tips are suitable for techniques that combine imaging, such as SPM and spectroscopy like tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS).

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:Systems and applications based on indoor positioning via led-lightingThe use of LED lamps available for lighting of different parts of a building or room in such a way as to allow the transmission of very high-frequency codes non-perceptible by humans together with the illumination lights. These codes (one unique code for each LED lamp) will be decoded by light detectors included in smart-devices, or by detectors designed particularly for this purpose. From the code information, the device positioning can be determined with high precision.

Universidad de Alcalá-OTRI posted this:System for reliable detection of occupancy of parking spacesThe research group in “Electronic engineering applied to intelligent spaces and transport (GEINTRA)” of the University of Alcalá presents an artificial vision system with telemeter, which combines the information from a video camera and an steerable telemeter, to inform and guide reliably to the user when finding a parking space for their vehicle in large areas of surface parking such as a shopping center or train station. The combination of those data, makes it possible to easily locate vehicles in the car park regardless of their type or size and the environmental conditions / lighting (e.g. at night). The research group looks for town halls and companies in charge of the management/administration of car parks, to reach license agreements, collaboration agreements or commercial agreements with technical assistance. There is a great added value in an application that combines the knowledge of the free spaces and the vehicles in movement through the parking so it can provide the right indications to the user guiding him to a free space.
