  1. SCHOTT And Primoceler Join Forces To Advance The Next Generation Of Ultra-Miniature, Ultra-Reliable Medical Implants

    The technology group SCHOTT has entered into an agreement to acquire Primoceler Oy to expand its hermetic packaging portfolio with pioneering glass micro bonding technology. This process enables the manufacture of vacuum-tight, ultra-miniature electronic and optical devices with superior reliability. Based on laser technology, this state-of-the-art bonding method can be completed without any heat or added materials, allowing device packaging for sensitive electronics made with only transparent materials, such as glass. Offering excellent biocompatibility with new glass types, the technology creates new possibilities for wafer level chip scale packaging (WL-CSP) in a wide range of applications, including medical implants, MEMS devices, and other reliability-critical electronic and optical devices.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.
