Modulight Inc. of Finland and Lafayette, Calif., a maker of semiconductor laser diodes for telecommunications, defense, medical and industrial applications, has appointed a business advisory board of photonics industry members. Its new advisors are Mike Scott (former Bookham chief technology officer and vice president of technology for Nortel Networks Optical Components), Jorg Neukum (worldwide sales and marketing manager of Dilas/Germany), Don Spalinger (senior vice president of Southampton Photonics), Modulight's technical advisor Pekka Savolainen and Modulight board of directors member Hubert Jouve.    . . .    Integrated Sensing Systems Inc. (ISSYS) of Ypsilanti, Mich., a provider of advanced micromachining technologies for medical devices, microfluidic and scientific analytical sensing applications, announced that it has signed a partnership contract for ISSYS' microdensity meter products with KEM (Kyoto Electronics Manufacturing Co.) of Kyoto, Japan, a specialized manufacturer of scientific instruments. The ISSYS products are based on MEMS (microelectromechanical system) technology, which offers advantages in system and sample size, cost and reliability over current approaches to fluidic density and chemical concentration measurement. In addition, ISSYS and KEM are working together to develop methanol concentrations sensors for the direct methanol fuel cell marketplace.    . . .    Mark M. Little has been named director of Niskayuna, N.Y.-based GE Global Research, the centralized research organization of General Electric. Little is the ninth director of the 105-year-old organization that was the first industrial lab in the US. He succeeds Scott C. Donnelly, who left in July to become president and CEO of GE Aircraft Engines. Little has been vice president of GE Energy's power generation business in Schenectady, N.Y., since 1997 and has been with GE for 27 years. Michael Idelchik, who has served as interim director since July, returns to his role as vice president of advanced technologies for GE Global Research.
