Microfluidic devices and molecule manipulation could benefit from research into optical trapping on silicon wafers.
The pilot fabrication can produce usable substrate size is 370 x 470 mm2 on glass substrates and foils in as little as three minutes. The system is designed for efficient materials usage and flexibility in substrate format and organic stack. It is one of the worlds first pilot production systems for OLED lighting and organic based solar cells.
When a calcite crystal is placed onto a printed page, the letters appear doubled. This is the result of a property called birefringence. Scientists at the Simon Fraser University in Canada have now developed a material that is among the most birefringent solids ever observed. As described in the journal Angewandte Chemie, this material is not a mineral, but rather a coordination polymer.
It may not rank among the top 10 causes of death, but decompression sickness can be fatal. Instead of waiting for symptoms to appear, a University of Houston professor is developing a laser-based system that can diagnose the sickness in a matter of seconds.
Royal Laser Corp. announces that it has completed the previously disclosed acquisition of all of the issued and outstanding shares of Apogee Slitting Inc., a Mississauga, Ontario based steel service centre, effective November 1, 2007, for initial purchase consideration of 6,000,000 common shares in the capital of the Corporation, and cash consideration of $6,000,000.
Synergetics USA, Inc. announced today the introduction of several new, patentable, disposable laser probes into its product line. Frequently, a retinal surgeon will be required to shoot upwards of a thousand laser shots into the retina in order to reattach a detached retina during a given procedure. These new laser probes will enable the surgeon to provide either a multi-spot pattern or treat a wider field, thereby saving the surgeon significant amounts of time in the operating room.
The Amada America's FO4020NT 6000 watt laser is designed for manufacturer's who want to process something other than just sheet metal. An ideal solution for thicker material (generally up to 1.25" mild steel and .750" stainless steel) the 6000 watt FO can provide exceptional edge quality and faster processing times than other laser systems or alternative processing methods. The FO4020NT has a table capacity of 78" x 160". Some of the key features include shuttle tables, automatic focal and assist gas control, and the automatic nozzle changing device. The FO4020NT is also available with the 4000 watt resonator.
On Track Innovations Ltd., a global leader in contactless microprocessor-based smart card solutions for homeland security, payments, petroleum payments and other applications, announced today that it will be showing a first-of-its- kind new and innovative, completely automated production line for Dual Interface Smartcards at Cartes 2007 in Paris.
