Quotes

"Blessed with the virtues of a high refractive index, uniform particle size, biological inertness and chemical stability, titanium dioxide (TiO2) remains by far the most widely used of all the pigments. "
...to help our economy rebound by boosting U S manufacturing and high-tech innovation," said Congressman Ruppersberger of Maryland's Second District. "The fact that one of Baltimore's own companies was selected and will be bringing jobs back to the city is icing on the cake. Pixelligent is an impressive and growing company, and I am proud that they have chosen the Second District to call home."
"In aircraft applications, inductive proximity sensing is commonly used. The sensors typically employ a two or three wire electrical connection to an interrogation system designed to query the sensor and determine its inductance, and from that infer whether a target is 'near' or 'far'. While the systems in practice are reliable and proven, when a system incorporating a large quantity of sensors is envisaged, the sheer number of electrical connections required can become large. In addition, significant effort needs to be expended to ensure proper protection from high intensity radiated fields, lightning strikes, and wire length limitations."
