The MilliWave Viscometer viscometer is a high-temperature viscosity measurement technology for process monitoring of hot molten materials such as in glass manufacture and metals refining. This technology, developed in part at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, received an R&D 100 award. Developed by researchers at MIT, PNNL, and Savannah River Technology Center, the MilliWave Viscometer won a 2001 R&D 100 Award.

Document Title: MilliWave Viscometer
Category: Materials Science
Media Type: Photos
Date of Image/Photo: August 6, 2001
Background: The MilliWave Viscometer fills a need for a high-temperature on-line viscosity sensor that makes possible real-time process control in the manufacture of glass, metals, and other melter-produced materials. It is the only viscosity measurement technology that uses millimeter-wave electromagnetic radiation to probe the movement of liquids.
