3M is now providing consumer electronics manufacturers with a revolutionary advancement in the emerging field of miniature projection technology. 3M scientists developed a breakthrough ultra-compact, LED-illuminated projection engine designed for integration into virtually any personal electronic device.
The two main goals of the project were to develop ultra-fast laser systems operating at different wavelengths, and to develop and test broadband fibre sources.
Electro Scientific Industries, Inc., a leading provider of world-class photonic and laser systems for micro-engineering applications, today announced that it will directly represent its memory repair products in Japan and separate from Canon Marketing Japan Inc., its distributor.
Ondax, a leading manufacturer of Volume Holographic Gratings, expands its product portfolio with the introduction of Wavelength Stabilized 405nm Laser Diodes. The stabilized lasers have a single-mode, narrow linewidth, very low temperature dependence and a coherence length of 1 meter. The lasers exhibit stable interference fringes after greater than 6 meters path length difference.
Researchers are developing new technology that could replace the household light-bulb within three years.
Broadband access in the Asia-Pacific region has experienced significant growth in the past decade, as operators have upgraded their networks in anticipation of future demand for high-bandwidth services. In a new study focused on residential FTTH in APAC, ABI Research finds that different markets within the region are currently in very different stages of broadband growth.
Chicago-based Cobra Electronics today announced the launch of its new Super-Xtreme Range Superheterodyne(TM) Maximum Performance 12 Band(TM) 2008 radar line. Following the success of the wireless remote controlled XRS R9G, the new line once again offers drivers detection of the fastest radar and laser guns -- including POP Mode and KU-Band-high-resolution full-color displays and other Cobra radar mainstay features drivers have come to rely on. Cobra's 2008 radar products offer maximum performance at prices that challenge competitors' products with less features and higher prices.
HiperScan GmbH is presenting their Scanning Grating Spectrometers at PittCon Exhibition 2008, March 2-7 at New Orleans.
OSRAM Opto Semiconductors has carried out pioneering work in the development of thin-film LEDs – supported by Fraunhofer researchers from Jena. The team of researchers has won the German Future Prize 2007 for their development of LED-based illumination modules.
Evolution Robotics, Inc., a leading provider of breakthrough robotic technologies for consumer products, today announced that the Korean Institute of Industrial Technology (KITECH) has licensed their ViPR® visual pattern recognition technology for incorporation into KITECH's national robot platform Software Development Kit (SDK).
Mobius Photonics Inc. announced today that it has entered into an exclusive licensing agreement with Harvard University regarding United States patent #5,745,284. The patent is based on the pioneering work of Lew Goldberg, Dahv Kliner, and Jeffrey Koplow. It broadly covers UV laser sources based on the harmonic wavelength conversion of the output of a seeded amplifier, particularly a fiber amplifier.
Uni-Pixel, Inc., the developer of flat panel color display technology called Time Multiplexed Optical Shutter ("TMOS"), today announced it has successfully completed the assembly of a series of prototype TMOS display systems.
Glaucoma is a stealthy illness; most people have no early symptoms and do not notice as their peripheral vision diminishes or blind spots occur. As a result, about half of the three million Americans with the disease are unaware of their condition.
The Boeing Company, industry teammates and the U.S. Missile Defense Agency have achieved the final 2007 milestone for the Airborne Laser (ABL) program, capping a successful year for the revolutionary airborne directed energy weapon system.
Early detection is critical to maintain healthy vision. With almost two-thirds of adult Americans, who do not wear corrective lenses, not receiving regular comprehensive eye exams, millions of people are putting their vision and their quality of life at risk, according to the American Optometric Association.
