Ultrafast electron microscopy reveals switchable nanochannels in materials Microscopic fissures in a tiny crystal open and close-on command. Researchers led by Ahmed H. Zewail successfully used ultrafast electron microscopy (UEM) to observe nanoscopic structures at their “exercises”, as they report in the journal Angewandte Chemie. Such switchable nanochannels could be useful for future nanoelectronics and nanoscopic “machines”.
A team of European scientists has published the details of its research into three-dimensional photonic crystals which they believe could revolutionise the world of telecommunications.
Research and Markets has announced the addition of Biophotonic Sensors and Smart Fiber Optic Sensor Networks to their offering.
BitBand, a leading provider of video delivery solutions for broadband IP networks, has been selected to supply its IPTV video servers to Connexion Technologies, the premier fiber-optic amenity company. Through the agreement, BitBand Technologies will help Connexion Technologies provide multi-dwelling residences and communities with advanced entertainment packages delivered over a single Fiber to the Home (FTTH) network.
Using laser light to stir an ultracold gas of atoms, researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the Joint Quantum Institute (NIST/University of Maryland) have demonstrated the first "persistent" current in an ultracold atomic gas - a frictionless flow of particles.
DxO Labs announced today that the new DxO IPE and DxO ISP product lines of embedded image processing solutions will contain the same professional quality demosaicing technology as can be found in the popular DxO Optics Pro v5 software package targeting serious and demanding photographers.
Imaging Diagnostic Systems, Inc., a pioneer in laser optical breast imaging, announced today that the Company has secured its 10th U.S. clinical site to participate in its CTLM(R) clinical trials. Under an approved protocol, the sites are collecting patient studies for the eventual submission of a Premarket Approval (PMA) application to the Food and Drug Administration.
Call/Recall Inc., a pioneer in affordable, ultra-high-capacity optical disk storage, today announced that it has developed and tested the industry's first terabyte optical disk, and is entering into product design and discussion with leading manufacturing partners.
Boston Micromachines Corporation, a leading provider of MEMS-based deformable mirror products for adaptive optics systems, today announced that it has been selected by the United States Army for a Phase II Small Business Technology Transfer Program (STTR) award through the Department of Defense.
The first 320-slice computed tomography (CT) scanner in North America, the most powerful X-ray imaging machine in its class, has been installed and is in operation at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
Irvine Sensors Corporation today announced that it has entered into a Memorandum of Agreement ("MOA") memorializing a teaming arrangement with Applied Research Associates, Inc., a diversified product and technical services company.
JDSU today announced that it has named BKtel Components, a leading distributor of fibre optic components and subsystems, as 2007 Distributor of the Year for the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. This is the second year in a row that JDSU has recognized BKtel for driving sales of JDSU optical communication products in the region.
Los Angeles, California based clinics, Aventi Hair Therapy and Freedom Laser Therapy, are joining forces to create a unique partnership for their nationwide licensing expansion of their health & cosmetic services.
The new HR65D-VI series of Machine Micro Lenses (MML's) from Moritex has been designed for high-resolution discrete part inspection in semiconductor manufacturing operations including die bonding, flip chip bonding, chip on glass and chip on film machining.
The new AVIA 355-7 from Coherent, Inc. is a Q-switched, frequency-tripled, solid-state laser delivering over 7 Watts of average power at 355 nm, in a package designed to maximize reliability for a minimum cost of ownership. The highest average power is achieved at repetition rates near 60 kHz, but the laser can be operated at pulse rates as high as 100 kHz, enabling very high throughput micromachining processes.
