  1. Proto Labs Introduces Low-Alloy Steel To Metal Injection Molding
    3/30/2015

    Product designers and engineers can now get injection-molded low-alloy steel prototypes and low-volume production parts at rapid manufacturer Proto Labs, Inc. The technology-driven company has added two nickel steel materials (Catamold FN02 and FN0205) and a chrome-moly material (Catamold 42CrMo4) that is the metal injection molding (MIM) equivalent of 4140 steel.

  2. A First Glimpse Inside A Macroscopic Quantum State
    3/27/2015

    In a recent study published in Physical Review Letters and highlighted by the magazine Science News, the research group led by ICREA Prof at ICFO Morgan Mitchell has detected, for the first time, entanglement among individual photon pairs in a beam of squeezed light.

  3. Nanoscale ‘Worms’ Provide New Route To Nano-Necklace Structures
    3/27/2015

    Researchers have developed a novel technique for crafting nanometer-scale necklaces based on tiny star-like structures threaded onto a polymeric backbone.

  4. Laser Energy Advances Among Reports Set For SPIE Optics + Optoelectronics
    3/27/2015

    A two-day workshop on laser energy projects in Europe and the United States and plenary talks by four leading photonics researchers are among programme highlights planned for SPIE Optics + Optoelectronics next month in Prague, Czech Republic.

  5. Quantum Optics: Understanding Spectral Properties Of Broadband Biphotons
    3/26/2015

    Advances in quantum optical technologies require scientists to control and exploit the properties of so-called biphotons. Biphotons occur when two photons become 'quantum-entangled' - spatially separate entities whose individual quantum states must be described with reference to each other.

  6. New Applications Brochure On Complex Motion Control Systems For Scientific Research
    3/26/2015

    Precision motion control systems leader PI (Physik Instrumente) L.P. recently released its newest catalog of precision motion solutions for Beamline Instrumentation.

  7. Continuous Leak Detection At Vital Installations
    3/25/2015

    The G300a thermal imaging camera from FLIR Systems lets you can monitor vital gas pipelines or installations 24/7. Installing a FLIR G300a will immediately enable you to see if a dangerous and costly gas leak appears.

  8. Imec Demonstrates 50GHz Ge Waveguide Electro-Absorption Modulator
    3/25/2015

    At this week’s OFC 2015, the largest global conference and exposition for optical communications, nanoelectronics research center imec, its associated lab at Ghent University (Intec), and Stanford University have demonstrated a compact germanium (Ge) waveguide electro-absorption modulator (EAM) with a modulation bandwidth beyond 50GHz.

  9. Laser Research CO2 Optics For Mid-Range Cutting & Engraving Lasers
    3/25/2015

    Laser Research Optics has introduced a line of OEM quality CO2 lenses and mirrors for mid-range laser cutting and engraving systems. Suited for field-replacement, they are in-stock for next day delivery.

  10. Capturing Blur Free Images From Ultra High Speed Events
    3/25/2015

    The new generation SIR3 Series compact range camera from Specialised Imaging is lightweight and robust making it ideally suited for the harsh indoor and outdoor environments associated with ballistic proofing ground and industrial use.
