The product line will be marketed, sold and supported in each region by its respective representative. LOT-Oriel will also represent the line in Northern Europe, Italy and Spain. The laser has applications in spectrochemical analysis, nanotech-scale fabrication, microscopy and soft x-ray source generation.    . . .    Ophthalmic surgical and eye care products maker Advanced Medical Optics Inc. (AMO) of Santa Ana, Calif., announced that a judge has upheld a May 2005 decision and awarded it $214 million in damages resulting from infringement of two AMO patents by Alcon Manufacturing Ltd. and Alcon Laboratories Inc. for phacoemulsification equipment used in cataract surgery. The judge granted AMO a permanent injunction, which was stayed pending appeal. The judge also required Alcon to post a $1.8 million bond on the injunction pending appeal. In May 2005, a jury awarded AMO $94.8 million in damages, which a judge reduced to $71.3 million. That amount was tripled in the latest damages award. Alcon had 30 days to file an appeal.
