Lasers meet fluids: an integrated approach

An optical manipulation and analysis platform that can fit onto a fingernail could significantly change the field of microfluidics.

OPTOELECTRONICS

ZnO-based LEDs begin to show full-colour potential

Start-up MOXtronics has recently produced the first coloured ZnO-based LEDs. Although the efficiency of these LEDs is not high, the emitters have the potential to outperform GaN rivals.

OPTICAL MONITORING

In situ method drives up yields and reduces costs

There is a lot more to making an optical filter than meets the eye. Dominik Goessi looks at the role of in situ monitoring in the production process and reviews the technology.

PRODUCT GUIDE
