- SpatiaLight Partners with Foreal Spectrum
SpatiaLight Inc. of Novato and Foreal Spectrum Inc. of San Jose, both in California, have entered into an agreement to develop and market a liquid-crystal-on-silicon optical light engine for use in rear projection televisions and other projection applications. The light engines will employ 1920 × 1080-pixel imagers from the former company and LED light sources from the latter. This could allow the creation of thinner televisions with increased color uniformity as well as lower heat output and energy consumption.
- The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
