The GTC concept car from Opel combines stunning design with exceptional safety.
This sports coupé offers impressive performance and the latest that the lighting industry can provide, namely high-power LEDs from O...
Laser Components IG, Inc., a leading NAFTA distributor of high technology semiconductor pulsed lasers, detectors, high power laser optics and polarizers; and OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, Inc., one of the worldwide leaders in semiconductor diode laser technology; today announced a franchise distribution agreement throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico effective May 1, 2007.
In addition to the world's smallest and first surface-mountable high-power laser for continuous wave mode (cw mode), OSRAM Opto Semiconductors will be presenting water-cooled vertical laser stacks and laser bars in standard “CS mount” casings for the first time in Europe in Hall B1, Stand 402.
This tiny 2.5 mm high laser has a footprint of only 6.0 x 4.5 mm².
The dustproof, electrically insulated package has an impressively small thermal resistance of just about 2.5 K/W. This tiny unit is designed for ...
Brightness values of over 300 lm have been achieved by OSRAM Opto Semi-conductors with a red 1 mm² chip featuring the latest InGAlP thin-film technol-ogy. The chips are designed primarily for projection applications, bringing a real boost in brightness to this sector. They will be used in Dragon and Ostar LEDs.
In the Best Innovator competition 2007, sponsored by A. T. Kearney and Wirtschaftswoche magazine, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors was the overall winner in all five categories of innovation management.
The new OSTAR Headlamp LED is now more than twice as bright as its predecessor, which at 250 lm was already one of the top performers in its class.
Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have generated extremely short pulses of light that are the strongest of their type ever produced and could prove invaluable in probing the ultra-fast motion of atoms and electrons.
A series of publications in the journal Nature highlights the race among competing research groups toward the long-anticipated goal of quantum networking.
The next advance in cameras is becoming a reality at the University of Rochester. Imaging chips revolutionized the photography industry, and now the chips themselves are being revolutionized.
Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) have successfully conducted an important round of successful laser experiments at the National Ignition Facility (NIF), validating key computer simulations and theoretical projections relevant to the plasma and X-ray environment necessary to achieve ignition.
A new laser-based method for measuring millimeter distances more accurately than ever before - with an uncertainty of 10 picometers (trillionths of a meter) - has been developed and demonstrated by a physicist at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces have used ion bombardment and gold metallisation to produce a new family of particles whose bonding behaviour can be chemically tailored. With these particles, scientists hope not only to be able to perform better research on the dynamics of solids and molecules. The discovery could also bring about, among other things, the development of new finishes which change their colour with temperature.
Engineers at Purdue University are the first researchers to create a material that has a "negative index of refraction" in the wavelength of light used for telecommunications, a step that could lead to better communications and imaging technologies.
Each morning, Mian Abbas enters his laboratory and sits down to examine--a single mote of dust. Zen-like, he studies the same speck suspended inside a basketball-sized vacuum chamber for as long as 10 to 12 days.
