DALSA Corp.'s semiconductor wafer foundry in Bromont, Quebec, has received a $1 million order from an existing foundry customer to manufacture application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) for the industrial marketplace. ASICs are microchips designed for various applications, from auto emission control to personal digital assistants. The order is to be delivered by the end of 2003; subsequent purchases are expected.   . . .   KARL STORZ, an endoscopy company based in Germany, said it has developed a system that uses autofluorescence/fluorescence for the early diagnosis of lung tumors. The D-LIGHT/AF system was adapted for that use from its current application of detecting urinary bladder carinoma. It was developed in cooperation with the Pneumology Clinic in Gauting; the laser research laboratory at the Urological Clinic, Grosshadern Clinical Center of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich; and the Medical Clinic, City Center Clinic of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University, Munich.   . . .   The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has named The Titan Corp. as a recipient of its 2003 IEEE Corporate Innovation Recognition, for its role in developing electron beam technology. Titan's founder, Gene W. Ray, will accept the award on behalf of the company at the annual IEEE honors ceremony, to be held June 21 in Nashville, Tenn.


GLOSSARY
fluorescence
The emission of light or other electromagnetic radiation of longer wavelengths by a substance as a result of the absorption of some other radiation of shorter wavelengths, provided the emission continues only as long as the stimulus producing it is maintained. In other words, fluorescence is the luminescence that persists for less than about 10-8 s after excitation.
