Tremendous need for high-power, reliable lasers in telecom predicted

Tremendous need for high-power, reliable lasers in telecom predicted

May 18, 2015: Since lasers were invented in 1960, they have penetrated countless scientific, industrial and recreational fields?from eye surgery to DVD players, from cutting steel to triggering ignition in missile stages. That last use is a target market for Alfalight, a University of Wisconsin-Madison spinoff that set out in 1999 to use patented technology to make lasers for the ...

Smaller, lighter, cooler high-powered LED lights developed

Smaller, lighter, cooler high-powered LED lights developed

By BizLED Bureau May 7, 2015: LED lights are usually lean, mean and energy-efficient. However, the less energy they use, the heavier they become. This is being seen as a challenge that keeps LED lights from reaching their full potential. Oxford-based startup MagWerks LED, a lighting design and engineering company, is trying to solve this problem, and claims to have ...

Researchers use LED and laser lights to test gold on-site

Researchers use LED and laser lights to test gold on-site

April 30, 2015: University of Adelaide researchers are developing a portable, highly sensitive method for gold detection that would allow mineral exploration companies to test for gold on-site at the drilling rig. Instead of utilising x-ray technology, the prototype uses LED and laser lights to detect gold mineralisation in the soil removed from a drill hole. Using light in two ...
