Veeco Instruments Inc., announced today that two recently purchased TurboDisc(R) E450(TM) As/P Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) Systems are being used by Xiamen Sanan OptoElectronics of Xiamen, China to expand their capacity of red, yellow and orange (ROY) high brightness light emitting diodes (HB-LEDs).
The presence of even trace amounts of H2O moisture or CO2 can threaten the integrity of processing equipment during compression and liquefaction of the natural gas due to ice formation. Carbon dioxide (CO2) or moisture (H2O) measurements can be used as a leading indicator of breakthrough, but in either case, it is essential to have very fast moisture analyzer to improve the life of the desiccant while maintaining product quality.
Allergan, Inc has announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved its new glaucoma combo drug Combigan (brimonidine tartrate / timolol maleate). The ophthalmic solution contains 0.2% alpha adrenergic agonist and 0.5% beta receptor inhibitor. It is indicated for reduction of increased intraocular pressure in glaucoma.
Net Insight has received the first order from HTN Communications for a Nimbra based network for enhanced sports programming across the United States.
Physicists in Arizona State University have designed a revolutionary laser technique which can destroy viruses and bacteria such as AIDS without damaging human cells and may also help reduce the spread of hospital infections such as MRSA.
Zecotek Medical Systems Inc. today announced that the Malaysian Institute for Micro-electronics Systems (MIMOS), Malaysia's premier center for advanced micro-electronics technology and manufacturing based in Kuala Lumpur, has successfully completed the first commercial production run of the company's new-generation Micro-pixel Avalanche Photo Diodes (MAPD) solid-state photo detectors.
International researchers at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), in Geneva, Switzerland, will soon embark on one of science's greatest adventures. With its very high energy, previously seen only in cosmic rays, the particle collider will probe the inner structure of matter at distances ten times smaller than any previous experiments.
Hibernia Atlantic, the only diverse transAtlantic submarine transport cable provider, today announces its support of U.S. accession to the 1982 Convention on the Law of the Sea.
The book starts with a basic discussion on light waves and the phenomenon of refraction and reflection. It then goes on to introduces the reader to the field of fibre optics and covers some of the recent developments, such as fibre amplifiers, dispersion compensation and nonlinear effects. A number of other applications are also presented.
Neoptix Incorporated, the market leader in fiber optic temperature sensors, and Qualitrol Company LLC, the global leader in transformer protection and monitoring, today announced their plans to develop and produce new solutions for on-line condition monitoring for the electric transmission and distribution markets.
Alfalight, Inc., an innovative manufacturer of highly efficient and reliable high-power diode lasers, announced today that it has received a $1.2 million contract from the Army Research Laboratory (ARL) in Adelphi, MD. This 12-month program, entitled "High Brightness Diode Sources" (HiBriDS) will enable Alfalight to leverage the results of two previous programs in order to create laser diode modules with higher brightness and reliability than current technology diode lasers can provide.
Supertex Inc., a recognized leader in high voltage analog and mixed signal integrated circuits (ICs), today introduced a family of three LED driver ICs, the CL320, CL325, and CL330, each consisting of three channels of constant current output, designed to drive three LED strings at currents of 20mA, 25mA, and 30mA each, respectively.
Scientists at Newcastle University have developed a cancer fighting technology which uses ultra-violet light to activate antibodies which very specifically attack tumours.
Ultratech, Inc., a leading supplier of lithography and laser-processing systems used to manufacture semiconductor devices, today announced that it has received an order from Advanced Semiconductor Engineering, Inc. (ASE)...
Using two NASA satellites, astronomers have discovered the heftiest known black hole to orbit a star. The new black hole, with a mass 24 to 33 times that of our Sun, is more massive than scientists expected for a black hole that formed from a dying star.
