SoftIntegration, Inc. announces the availability of Ch 6.0 and Embedded Ch 6.0. Ch is an embeddable C/C++ interpreter for cross-platform scripting, 2-D/3-D plotting, numerical computing, shell programming, and embedded scripting.
Elsevier, a publisher of scientific, technical, and medical information products and services with U.S. headquarters in New York, N.Y., recently announced their launch of illumin8 (www.illumin8.com).
Swiss-based Stadler Rail Group produces about 700 light and commuter rail vehicles per year. All of its products meet stringent requirements governing safety equipment, strength of train units (cars and engines), and, above all, passenger and crew protection from the forces of impact.
Custom sapphire wafer carriers that can be manufactured to specification with perforations and other characteristics for thinning semiconductor materials are available from Meller Optics, Inc.?Meller sapphire wafer carriers feature ±1.
Arryx Inc., has launched the addition of the HOTkit Complete Holo-Tweezers Solution to its proprietary holographic optical trapping (“HOT”) product line.
Semrock, Inc., announces an addition to its BrightLine optical filters for multiphoton biological imaging with a unique filter optimized for second harmonic generation (SHG) microscopy.
A new picosecond cold processing laser—RAPID—has been introduced with up to 50 W TEM00 average power and pulse repetition rates of up to 1 MHz. These are ideal for high quality industrial micromachining. The throughput is increased by more then a factor of 10 compared to previously available models.
Coherent has released two new optically pumped semiconductor lasers (OPSLs) for laser photocoagulation treatment of wet-form macular degeneration and diabetic retinopathy.
Just like human drivers, some photons are faster than others depending on road conditions. Nearly identical materials can make a huge difference to travel time, as discovered by Joint Quantum Institute (JQI), College Park, Md., scientists who built a specialized interferometer that can "stop-watch" individual photons.
Scientists at IBM, Yorktown Heights, N.Y., have taken another significant advance towards sending information inside a computer chip by using light pulses instead of electrons by building the world's tiniest nanophotonic switch. Its footprint is about 100x smaller than the cross section of a human hair.
Air Products’ new Anquamine 721 and Anquamine 731 epoxy curing agents give users the ability to use less binder, more filler, and water as a diluent, which translates to cost savings to formulators.
FIBRIL nanotubes can be used at low loadings in all the polymers typically used to make static dissipative test sockets. The nanotube filled polymers provide the necessary static decay, while maintaining a relatively high surface resistivity.
The newly developed Kaolite 2000-LI castable from Thermal Ceramics meets both the strength and thermal properties needed for high performance linings. The strength-to-density ratio of the Kaolite 2000-LI product is in the range of 11 to 12 psi/pcf.
Porous and semi-porous fabrics (56 Series) are Teflon PTFE coated fiberglass fabrics range from Semi-porous breathable breeder cloth to 1/8”, 3/16” and ¼” porous mesh. The surface texture is visible and can be used as an embossment sheet.
Nicolet iN 10 FT-IR microscope, in combination with OMNIC Picta software, closes the gap between simplicity of FT-IR spectroscopy and complexity of infrared microscopy.
