    12/20/2018

    Researchers have demonstrated a new technique that can store more optical data in a smaller space than was previously possible on-chip. This technique improves upon the phase-change optical memory cell, which uses light to write and read data, and could offer a faster, more power-efficient form of memory for computers.

  9. Opto Diode Introduces Ultraviolet LEDs With Narrow Spectral Output
    12/20/2018

    Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, introduces the first in a series of ultraviolet light-emitting diodes (UVLEDs), the OD-265-001. The new, narrow-spectral output UVLED is designed for robust and long-lifetime use. The device features include total power output of 0.53 mW (minimum) and 0.68 mW (typical), with peak emission wavelengths at 260 nm (minimum), 265 nm (typical) and 270 nm (maximum).  Emission in this wavelength range makes these devices suitable for disinfection applications.
