10.525GHz Microwave Motion Sensor Module


A microwave beam can also be easily generated with the HB100 module which is mainly used as a motion sensor . It is a motion sensor module in the microwave X-band, it has a resonance oscillator and a pair of microstrip patch type antennas , this sensor is ideal for use in the motion detection devices and for speed measurement.

HB Series of microwave motion sensor module are X-Band Mono-static DRO Doppler transceiver front-end module. These modules are designed for movement detection, like intruder alarms, occupancy modules and other innovative ideas. The module consists of Dielectric Resonator Oscillator (DRO), microwave mixer and patch antenna (see Diagram below).


Technical specifications:
Low power consumption (typically 30 mA)
Pulse operation or CW
Detection range ( 20 m )
Operating supply voltage between 4.75V and 5.25V
X – Band frequency : 10.525 GHz

The HB100 module can then be used as a source of a microwave beam, as shown in the figure below :


The microwave beam produced by the module HB100 is linearly polarized. This fact is evident using as a gunnplexer receiver and interposing between source and receiver a PCB “stripboard” which has the function of a polarizing filter:

Raman Spectroscopy of Minerals, Crystals and inorganic Salts

Abstract: in this article we describe the construction of a DIY Raman system, based on a 532 nm DPSS laser and a B&W Tek surplus spectrometer. A 90° configuration was chosen for the collection of scattered light, particularly suitable for the analysis of liquid samples. The system is equipped with optical fiber and sharp-edge filters for blocking the radiation from excitation laser. The system has been used for acquisition of the Raman spectra of numerous organic and inorganic substances.
