    The technical development in the field of industrial fire protection and early fire detection has made tremendous progress during recent years.

  6. Sensor The Size Of A Nitrogen Atom Investigates Hard Drives
    1/2/2018

    To connect components with each other, gluing is preferred today instead of welding, riveting or using screws. That makes cars, planes and agricultural machines lighter.

  7. "Quantum Radio” May Aid Communications And Mapping Indoors, Underground, And Underwater
    1/2/2018

    Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have demonstrated that quantum physics might enable communications and mapping in locations where GPS and ordinary cellphones and radios don’t work reliably or even at all, such as indoors, in urban canyons, underwater and underground.

  8. Tweaking Quantum Dots Improves Double-Pane Solar Window Electricity Generation, Shading, And Insulation
    1/2/2018

    Using two types of “designer” quantum dots, researchers are creating double-pane solar windows that generate electricity with greater efficiency and create shading and insulation for good measure.

  9. LG Electronics, Here Technologies Partner On Next-Gen Telematics For Autonomous Vehicles
    12/27/2017

    LG Electronics (LG) is partnering with HERE Technologies (HERE), a global provider of digital mapping and location services, to offer a next-generation telematics solution for autonomous vehicles.

  10. Opto Diode Introduces 13.5 nm Directly-Deposited Thin-Film Filter Photodetectors
    12/13/2017

    Opto Diode Corporation, an ITW company, introduces the SXUV100TF135 and SXUV100TF135B photodiodes with integrated thin-film filters. The detectors each feature a 100 mm2 active area and a directly-deposited thin-film filter for detection between 12 nm and 18 nm. Both detectors have typical responsivity of 0.09 A/W at 13.5 nm and are optimized for different electrical performance. The photodiodes are ideal for use in applications such as laser power monitoring, semiconductor photolithography, and metrology systems that utilize extreme ultraviolet light.
