The University of Wyoming's telescope is getting a makeover for its 30th birthday.
Scientists at Schepens Eye Research Institute have discovered a simple and inexpensive way for patients with retinal and other eye disease to keep track of changes in their vision loss. In a study published in this week's PLoS One (October 24, 2007) they demonstrate that a compelling visual illusion known as the induced twinkle after-effect (TAE) can accurately identify the location and breadth of actual blind spots in people with retinal disease.
National Semiconductor Corporation today introduced the industry's first common-anode, current-mode, high-brightness light-emitting diode (LED) driver with pulse-width modulation (PWM) dimming. The LM3433, a member of National's PowerWise(R) energy-efficient product family, drives high-power, high-brightness LEDs in backlighting, projector and solid-state lighting applications.

EM4, Inc., the leading US based manufacturer of optoelectronic components and modules, today introduced a series of ruggedized small form Factor fiber coupled Acousto Optic Modulators and high power handling fiber coupled Isolators for the defense, homeland security and industrial markets.
In what looks set to become the next battleground for one-upmanship between the major LCD TV manufacturers, Samsung has previewed a screen which is just 10mm thick at this week¡¦s FPD International show Japan.
National Semiconductor Corporation today introduced its light-emitting diode (LED) WEBENCH(R) online design environment that helps engineers select from and design with more than 200 high-brightness LEDs in minutes.
A new class of pixel-based imaging devices being developed by a UK consortium is now being trialed in scientific imaging applications ranging from particle physics and space science to medicine and biology. Active-pixel sensor (APS) technology exploits mainstream CMOS technology to incorporate programmable transistors into each pixel of the image array.
Universities from the UK and Taiwan have joined forces in a project that they hope will combine the nanophotonics expertise of the UK with the industrial links of Taiwan.
OmniVision Technologies, Inc., a leading independent supplier of CMOS CameraChip(TM) solutions for high-volume imaging applications, today announced that the smallest of its family of CMOS imaging devices, the 1/18-inch OV6920 sensor, is a key component of Avantis Medical Systems' Third Eye(TM) Retroscope(TM) auxiliary endoscopy system.
China on Monday started building a new fiber-optic undersea cable that will connect it to the U.S.
AboveNet Communications, Inc., a leading provider of fiber optic connectivity solutions, announced it has won a contract with the Philadelphia Stock Exchange (PHLX), a leader in the derivatives industry, to build a private, optical network that will extend and expand their network reach from Pennsylvania to New York and New Jersey.
GSI Group Inc., a supplier of precision technology and semiconductor systems, today announced that an existing Taiwanese customer, has issued a $7 million order and an additional $10 million letter of intent for multiple M550 IR advanced laser wafer repair processing systems.
