  3. Samsung’s LED Component Test Lab Approved By UL For UL Total Certification Program
    5/25/2016

    Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced component solutions, recently announced that its test lab for LED packages and modules has been qualified by UL (Underwriters Laboratories), a widely-recognized global safety science organization, to operate the UL Total Certification Program (TCP), one of the highest levels of testing and qualification under the UL Data Acceptance Program (DAP)

  4. More Light On Cancer: Scientists Created Nanoparticles To Highlight Cancer Cells
    5/21/2016

    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.

  5. High-Speed Cameras Used For Scientific And Medical Research
    5/20/2016

    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).

  6. Computing A Secret, Unbreakable Key
    5/20/2016

    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.

  7. ‘Mexican Hat’ In Bilayer Graphene Enables Ultralow-Power Operation Of Future Nanoelectronic Chips
    5/20/2016

    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.

  8. Two-Stage Nanoparticle Delivery Of Piperlongumine And Tumor Necrosis Factor-Related Apoptosis-Inducing Ligand (TRAIL) Anti-Cancer Therapy
    5/20/2016

    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.

  9. Photon Collisions: Photonic Billiards Might Be The Newest Game
    5/19/2016

    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.

  10. Stirling Cooled MWIR Imaging Core Enables Long Range Monitoring In Security Applications
    5/18/2016

    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).
