—A new optical instrument has been developed that captures 2-D images at high speed and high sensitivity using 1-D photomultiplier tube arrays. The arrays are orthogonally aligned, and using a coaligned video-speed imager, fast images can be reconstructed using matrix inversion techniques. The instrument can be used to make measurements of optical(More)
The aim was to describe variation in length of the dorsal hoof wall in contact with the dermis for cows on a single farm, and hence, derive minimum appropriate claw lengths for routine foot trimming. The hind feet of 68 Holstein-Friesian dairy cows were collected post mortem, and the internal structures were visualised using x-ray µCT. The internal distance(More)
A laboratory-scale atmospheric pressure plasma reactor, using a nanosecond pulsed corona, was constructed to demonstrate potential applications, ranging from modification of surface energy to removal of surface organic films. For surface modification studies three different substrates were selected to evaluate the surface energies: bare aluminum,(More)
