  1. More Light On Cancer: Scientists Created Nanoparticles To Highlight Cancer Cells

    Investigations to find methods for synthesizing such nanoparticles are actively conducted in many laboratories around the world, however, according to one of the study co-authors, professor of the Physics Department of the Lomonosov Moscow State University, Victor Timoshenko, the particles' quality was poor, mainly because they were synthesized by chemical reactions in acid solutions.

  2. High-Speed Cameras Used For Scientific And Medical Research

    Professor Liu, the Director of Biomedical Optical Imaging Laboratory at the University of Pittsburgh, is working on developing an imaging technology for high-throughput nanoscale nuclear architecture mapping; applications to predict early progression of cancer; phase imaging to improve cytology diagnostics; and super-resolution imaging of the organization of genomes in cancer progression. Professor Liu needed extremely high-resolution, high-speed, and light-sensitive cameras which led him to Phantom cameras. One of the highest-quality Phantom cameras that Liu and his team utilize is the Phantom V1210, which can capture images up to 12,600 frames-per-second (FPS).

  3. Computing A Secret, Unbreakable Key

    What once took months by some of the world’s leading scientists can now be done in seconds by undergraduate students thanks to software developed at the University of Waterloo’s Institute for Quantum Computing, paving the way for fast, secure quantum communication.

  4. ‘Mexican Hat’ In Bilayer Graphene Enables Ultralow-Power Operation Of Future Nanoelectronic Chips

    Scientists have developed a new type of graphene-based transistor and using modelling they have demonstrated that it has ultralow power consumption compared with other similar transistor devices.

  5. Two-Stage Nanoparticle Delivery Of Piperlongumine And Tumor Necrosis Factor-Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand (TRAIL) Anti-Cancer Therapy

    A team of researchers from Cornell University in Ithaca, New York demonstrated a drug delivery mechanism that utilizes two independent vehicles, allowing for delivery of chemically and physically dis-tinct agents.

  6. Photon Collisions: Photonic Billiards Might Be The Newest Game

    When one snooker ball hits another, both spring away from each other in an elastic manner. In the case of two photons a similar process – the elastic collision – has never been observed.

  7. Stirling Cooled MWIR Imaging Core Enables Long Range Monitoring In Security Applications

    Xenics has recently introduced the fourth member of its high-resolution 'XenicsCores' Infrared OEM product family. The new Stirling-cooled XCO-640 MWIR module provides unprecedented thermal imaging stability and optical performance for perimeter surveillance, law enforcement and homeland security. At Eurosatory Xenics will exhibit in booth # FE288 in Hall 06 at the Belgium pavilion hosted by BSDI (Belgium Security & Defence Industry).

  8. Series 9.5 APDs With Enhanced NIR Sensitivity Up To 950 nm

    The new Series 9.5 avalanche photodiodes from First Sensor feature an increased sensitivity in the near infrared (NIR) wavelength range up to 950 nm. Due to its fast rise time and very low dark current the photodiodes are ideal for applications with low light intensities and high modulation frequencies such as laser rangefinding and laser scanning. The slow increase of the amplification with the applied reverse bias voltage of the Series 9.5 allows for easy and precise adjustments of high gain factors.

  9. Tailored Solutions From First Sensor

    First Sensor offers its customers a continuous process in order to realize their optimum sensor solution - from the initial idea to the finished product. Tailored Solutions means for us: we analyze the specific task of the customer, plan, develop and manage its entire sensor solution. This may consist of a standard sensor, a modification thereof or a custom development.
