  3. Wireless System Can Power Devices Inside The Body

    MIT researchers, working with scientists from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, have developed a new way to power and communicate with devices implanted deep within the human body. Such devices could be used to deliver drugs, monitor conditions inside the body, or treat disease by stimulating the brain with electricity or light.

  4. Bristol Instruments Improves Its Laser Spectral Analysis Capability In The IR And Mid-IR

    Bristol Instruments, Inc., a leader in optical interferometer-based instrumentation, announces the introduction of the new 771A-MIR Laser Spectrum Analyzer. The 771 product line includes a series of unique instruments that operate as both a high-accuracy wavelength meter and a high-resolution spectrum analyzer. The model 771A-MIR combines highest wavelength measurement accuracy and highest spectral resolution for IR and mid-IR laser applications.

  5. New Ophir® PD300-MS Power Meter For Fluorescence Microscopy Measures High NA Microscope Objectives

    MKS Instruments, Inc., a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has announced the Ophir® PD300-MS microscope slide power meter for accurate measurements of light emitted from fluorescence microscopes. The PD300-MS measures power levels of high numerical aperture (NA) objectives, from 5µW to 1W. A special filter provides low angular dependence, enabling higher accuracy measurements. NIST-traceable calibration allows for measurement of wavelengths from 350nm to 1100nm. The power meter is designed for use with a wide range of light sources in such applications as photoactivation or photobleaching. To accommodate limited space, it has the same footprint as a standard microscope slide. The PD300-MS can be used at the sample plane in air or with water/oil immersion objectives without damage.

  6. Imec Demonstrates Wireless Eye-Tracking Technology Based On Electro-Oculography

    Imec, the world-leading research and innovation hub in nano-electronics and digital technology, will demonstrate recently at its Imec Technology Forum in Antwerp (ITF Belgium 2018), a new wireless eye-tracking technology based on electro-oculography (EOG), an ophthalmology technique used to examine eyes and record eye movement.
