Eyelit, Inc., a manufacturing software provider for visibility, control and coordination of manufacturing operations for the aerospace & defense, electronics, life sciences, semiconductor and solar industries announced today that HelioVolt, a producer of highly-efficient thin film solar products, has selected Eyelit’s Enterprise Manufacturing Execution Suite (MES) to provide a cost-effective manufacturing software infrastructure for its global manufacturing network.
ASML Holding NV (ASML) and Carl Zeiss SMT (Zeiss) today announce that each has signed an agreement with Canon Inc. (Canon) for the global cross-license of patents in their respective fields of semiconductor lithography and optical components, used to manufacture integrated circuits, or chips.
NeuroMetrix, Inc., a medical device company advancing patient care through the development and marketing of innovative products used to diagnose and treat diseases of the nervous system, neurovascular disorders, and pain, announced today that it has acquired substantially all of the assets of EyeTel Imaging, Inc. and has assumed certain specified liabilities in connection with the acquisition.
Cone-beam breast CT provides exceptional tissue contrast and can potentially reduce examination time with comparable radiation dose to conventional 2D mammography, according to a new study by a team of researchers from the University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston.
Energy Focus, Inc. the global leader in energy-efficient lighting technologies, announces three new EFO-LED products for use in commercial and industrial applications. These products will be sold through Energy Focus's distribution channels and private labeled through its alliance with TCP, Inc., the world's largest manufacturer of compact fluorescent light bulbs.
An international team of astronomers, led by Professor Svetlana Berdyugina of ETH Zurich’s Institute of Astronomy, has for the first time ever been able to de-tect and monitor the visible light that is scattered in the atmosphere of an exoplanet. Employing techniques similar to how Polaroid sunglasses filter away reflected sunlight to reduce glare, the team of scientists were able to extract polarized light to enhance the faint reflected starlight ‘glare’ from an exoplanet. As a result, the scientists could infer the size of its swollen atmosphere.
An analysis by the international LIGO (Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) Scientific Collaboration has excluded one previously leading explanation for the origin of an intense gamma-ray burst that occurred last winter. Gamma-ray bursts are among the most violent and energetic events in the universe, and scientists have only recently begun to understand their origins.
Laser surgery to correct vision problems has been in use since the early 1990s. Photorefractive Keratotomy (PRK) is typically used to correct low to moderate myopia, while laser in-situ keratomileusis (LASIK) is preferred for high myopia corrections. Although over 18 million LASIK procedures have been performed worldwide, there is still some controversy regarding the maximum correction possible and efficacy with this technique.
In the United States, the management of glaucoma costs about $2.5 billion per year. Of the $1.9 billion in direct costs, glaucoma medications account for an estimated 38% to 52% of the total.
Lightscape Technologies Inc., a provider of innovative lighting design solutions, advanced lighting products and customized energy management solutions, today announced that the company has launched its new LED Screen Rental Service and secured its first rental service contract in Hong Kong.
A type of beetle that lives its entire life burrowing through stored grain has been found to lack full colour vision, and what’s more the vision it does have breaks the rules. Most other insects have trichromatic vision – they are sensitive to ultraviolet, blue and long wavelength light. In a report published in the online open access journal Frontiers in Zoology, scientists reveal that this beetle has lost photoreceptors that are sensitive to blue wavelengths.
Himax Technologies, Inc. today introduced a patented technology for LED notebook panels, CMDI (Cascade Modulated Driver Interface). CDMI technology enables thin and light form factor, lower material costs, and lower power consumption for LED notebook panels and supports resolution of up to 1920x1200. CMDI technology has already passed qualifications at certain North America notebook brands and is in mass production.
The ultra-high data speeds possible on optical fibre networks will only come into their own when the fibres reach the last mile into everyone’s home. But that will require miniaturisation and integration of optical components on a scale not yet seen. European researchers may have some of the answers. Broadband access has transformed the economic potential of the internet.
Medicsight PLC, a subsidiary of MGT Capital Investments, Inc., and an industry leader in the development of Computer-Aided Detection (CAD) and image analysis software which assists in the early detection of disease, welcomes the initiative by Barbara Cubin, Republican Representative for Wyoming, to introduce legislation to increase patient access to Computed Tomography Colonography (CTC). CTC is the innovative screening test for colorectal cancer that has the potential to save thousands of lives.
