Single Crystal Orientation Laue System For Gallium Phosphate for High Precision Piezoelectric Sensors 06 Nov

Latest article from Christian Roethel at Piezocryst to find out how the Photonic Science Laue system is used for precision crystal orientation for piezoelectric sensors. Christian Roethel, has a PhD in X-ray Diffraction from the Technical University of Graz. He joined PIEZOCRYST ADVANCED SENSORICS GMBH in 2018 as the head of sales and the product management team. Christian is involved in the products from conception through to sales and marketing and is the applications expert. Piezocryst, are part of the AVL group, who are focused on the development of combustion engines and more recently electric engines for the automotive industry.

Light engine operating lifetime Robustness, Reliability, Longevity in Maintenance-free lighting 11 Nov

Estimates of the operational lifetimes of solid-state light sources ranging from 10,000–50,000 hours of light output are frequently cited in research and commercial publications. However these estimates are often derived from performance data for single light emitting diodes (LEDs) and are not necessarily representative of integrated light engines in typical working environments. This white paper provides operating lifetime estimates for Lumencor’s solid-state light engines based on analysis of service history data.
