  1. Atomic Switcheroo Explains Origins Of Thin-Film Solar Cell Mystery
    4/23/2014

    Treating cadmium-telluride (CdTe) solar cell materials with cadmium-chloride improves their efficiency, but researchers have not fully understood why.

  2. Steering Chemical Reactions With Laser Pulses
    4/23/2014

    Usually, chemical reactions just take their course, much like a ball rolling downhill. However, it is also possible to deliberately control chemical reactions: at the Vienna University of Technology, molecules are hit with femtosecond laser pulses, changing the distribution of electrons in the molecule.

  3. Miniature Spectral Imaging Camera
    4/22/2014

    The use of Spectral Imaging to improve image analysis and allow discrimination between visually identical objects is increasing. Gooch & Housego has applied high speed acousto-optic tunable filters (AOTF) to develop the HSi-440C Hyper-Spectral Imaging microscope system for biomedical research which allows video rate processing of high resolution images.

  4. Visible Wavelength Fiber Coupled Acousto-Optic Modulator for Biomedical Applications
    4/22/2014

    The Gooch & Housego Fiber-Q is a range of fiber coupled acousto-optic modulator products. Following receipt earlier this year of an inquiry from a large Japanese company for Fiber-Qs operating at 488nm (blue) and 532nm (green), G&H have decided to extend the Fiber-Q range with the introduction of a product operating in the visible wavelength region (approximately 400nm-700nm).

  5. Malaysian And Taiwanese Researchers Make Major Advances In Dye Sensitized Solar Cells
    4/22/2014

    Two groups of researchers have recently advanced the field of solar cells with a cheaper and efficient replacement for platinum and better synthesis of zinc oxide.

  6. NREL Unlocking Secrets Of New Solar Material
    4/22/2014

    A new solar material that has the same crystal structure as a mineral first found in the Ural Mountains in 1839 is shooting up the efficiency charts faster than almost anything researchers have seen before—and it is generating optimism that a less expensive way of using sunlight to generate electricity may be in our planet's future.

  7. DSI Introduces Solderable Coatings And Face Metallisation Optical Coatings

    Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI), global manufacturer of durable thin-film optical coatings, introduces thin-film solderable coatings and face metallisation available on a variety of substrates.

  8. DSI Introduces Solderable Coatings And Face Metallization Optical Coatings
    4/21/2014

    Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI), global manufacturer of highly durable thin film optical coatings, introduces thin film solderable coatings and face metallization, available on a wide variety of subsrates.

  9. Forza Silicon Introduces Advanced CMOS Modular Video Camera Platform System – 100+ Megapixels At 60 fps
    4/21/2014

    Forza Silicon, a leader of advanced image sensor­­ and mixed-signal IC designs for digital camera applications, introduces the unprecedented Forza 100+ MP CAM Platform featuring a customizable CMOS image sensor operating at 60 frames per second (fps) and supporting multiple camera resolutions­.

  10. Flipping The Switch
    4/18/2014

    Harvard researchers have succeeded in creating quantum switches that can be turned on and off using a single photon, a technological achievement that could pave the way for the creation of highly secure quantum networks.
