MARYLAND (CyHAN)- As the latest in a continuing progression of NASA supersonics research projects aimed at reducing or mitigating the effect of sonic booms, the Farfield Investigation of No Boom Threshold, or FaINT, flight research project will help engineers better understand evanescent waves, an acoustic phenomenon that occurs at the very edges or just outside of the cone or envelope where sonic booms are heard.
His account pivots on the evanescent wave, explaining it as a physical phenomenon and as the basis for ATR spectroscopy.
The evanescent field excites a fluorophore localized near the metal surface, which in turn emits evanescent waves, generating surface plasmons at the fluorescence emission frequency.
The nanowires carry light via evanescent waves that envelop the slender filaments.
The University of Arizona and France's University of Rennes are developing IR glass fibers for biochemical sensors using evanescent wave spectroscopy .
This is an inherent limitation of sensitivity when the evanescent wave phenomenon is used.
