  • QPC Lasers Joins 3D@Home Consortium
Apr 2008
QPC Lasers Inc. of Sylmar, Calif., a maker of semiconductor lasers for the consumer electronics, industrial, defense, and medical markets, announced it is a founding member in the 3D@Home Consortium, an international alliance of 22 companies formed to commercialize in-home 3-D entertainment. QPC has a $12 million contract to provide its BrightLase chips for Laser TV applications; the chips are also compatible with technology formats including LCoS (liquid crystal on silicon), DLP (digital light processing), LC (liquid crystal) and micromirror microdisplay devices. "We believe that 3-D-enabled displays using this technology will create an even more immersive experience for the user and allow BrightLase-based visible lasers to be exploited to their full commercial capacity," said QPC Lasers CEO Jeffrey Ungar, PhD. Other members of the 3D@Home Consortium, organized by the US Display Consortium and Insight Media, include: Philips, Samsung, Corning, Planar Systems, the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems, and Holografika.

That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
A transmissive, reflective or emissive high-resolution display that typically measures 1 cm diagonally, and whose use requires magnifying optics to project a highly magnified image on a surface for the image to be observed by the viewer.
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...
