Laser Energetics, Inc. (Pink Sheets: LNGT.PK) is pleased to announce the Company's new, all solid- state Alexandrite laser technology, "BrightStar,(TM)" has been selected by the US Army as the technology of choice for a near term "remote sensing "application in detecting chemical warfare agents.
When someone has multiple sclerosis, it's expensive to detect the changes caused by this disease. Researchers at John Hopkins have recently announced that they have found that a five-minute eye exam could be used to help detect changes in the brain caused by multiple sclerosis. Over 400,000 Americans are affected by multiple sclerosis.
NIST researchers have designed and demonstrated a transistor containing quantum dots that can count individual photons. The semiconductor device could be integrated easily into electronics for applications such as quantum key distribution (QKD) for 'unbreakable' encryption using single photons
Lumera Corp. today announced the release of its 40-Gbit/sec electro-optic polymer modulator for optical transmission systems. Lumera claims its modulator combines the lowest drive voltage and the highest bandwidth capabilities available on the market today, while maintaining a smaller footprint than existing electro-optic modulators.
Opsens Inc. announced the acceptance of RadSens' as a measurement equipment for undertaking RadHaz trials on equipment employing electro-explosive devices (EED) by the Defence Ordnance Safety Group (DOSG), an organization of the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence.
The new Paladin(TM) Compact 355-4000 from Coherent, Inc. is the first solid-state, ultraviolet laser to deliver 4 Watts of quasi-CW output (at 355 nm) in a small footprint package.
Israel has selected a laser-based counter-measure system to protect civilian aircraft from enemy missiles.
AMS Technologies announces the market launch of Wavelenght Electronics' new laser diode drivers and temperature controllers (LDTC).
Wavelenght Electronics tightly packed the FL500 low noise laser diode driver with...
At the Institut Curie, Simon Scheuring, beneficiary of the Inserm Avenir program and coordinator of the CNRS/Inserm "Atomic force microscopy (AFM) of proteins in native membranes" team, has for the first time observed a diseased tissue at very high resolution using atomic force microscopy (AFM).
Across the country, customers are signing up to supply the new energy efficient glazing, Pilkington energiKare. Since its launch in May, more than 100 companies have registered their interest in becoming partner companies to either manufacture or stock the new insulated glass unit (IGU) or offer windows containing Pilkington energiKare.
Luminus Devices, Inc. and Global Lighting Technologies (GLT) Inc. have announced that they will demonstrate their PhlatLight BLU (Backlight Unit) for LCD TVs during the Flat Panel Display International 2007 Conference. T...
A joint South Korea-U.S. research team said Tuesday that they have developed a new lighting material that greatly enhances liquid crystal display (LCD) clarity in an outdoor environment.
DuPont today introduced DuPont(TM) Light Stabilizer 210, a product designed as sun protection for plastics. The product uses extremely small particles of titanium dioxide to efficiently absorb ultraviolet light, protecting plastic and anything it covers from the sun's damaging rays. Because a sizeable percentage of titanium dioxide particles in the product are nanoscale, it was selected as a demonstration case for application of the Nano Risk Framework that DuPont and Environmental Defense introduced in June. The Framework is a systematic and disciplined process to evaluate and address the potential risks of nanoscale materials.
Microsemi Corporation announced today that Cypress Semiconductor Corporation has selected the Microsemi LX1972BC(tm) light sensor for the new PSoC(r) FirstTouch(tm) Starter Kit. The FirstTouch kit provides a quick, easy, and affordable way to evaluate the integration, flexibility, and real mixed-signal programmability of PSoC mixed-signal arrays in a number of embedded applications.
The Fiber Optic Association says it is working to fill a void in the information available about fiber optics by creating a web site devoted to information for end users considering fiber-optic communications systems and/or planning and installing a network.
