Opsens Inc. has announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office
(USPTO) has granted Opsens, patent no. 7,259,862 entitled Low-coherence
interferometry optical sensor using a single wedge polarization readout
An international team of researchers has detected low-energy solar neutrinos--subatomic particles produced in the core of the sun--and measured in real-time the rate the particles hit our planet.
The research provides a way to integrate optical and electronic functions on a single chip and enables new types of integrated circuits. It introduces a more practical technology with lower cost, lower power consumption and more compact devices.

Placing a film of silicon nanoparticles onto a silicon solar cell can boost power, reduce heat and prolong the cell's life, researchers now report.
Dow Corning has turned to renewable forms of energy to help power one of its largest manufacturing sites in Europe. More than 1,000 square meters of solar panels, installed on the roof and facades of office and production buildings, are expected to generate the amount of energy needed to satisfy the annual electricity needs of 35 households.
A new chemical compound which could remove the need for patients to undergo certain invasive diagnostic tests in the future has been created by scientists at Durham University.

Global warming isn't the only heat scientists are feeling. Another area in which heat flow is becoming crucial is the field of molecular electronics, where long-chain molecules attached to tiny electrodes are used to transport and switch electrons.
Two staff members in the School of Chemistry at University of Bristol have won Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) industrially sponsored awards.
By combining the capabilities of several telescopes, teams of scientists, including University of Massachusetts Amherst astronomers, have spotted extremely bright galaxies hiding in the distant, young universe.
Most people think of Sir Isaac Newton as the father of gravity.
But for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory physicist Henry Chapman and his colleagues, Newton's 'dusty mirror' experiment served as a launching pad for them to keenly watch the X-ray induced explosion of microscopic objects.
