Flexible Glass Substrates Enable Large-Scale Integration
Flexible Glass Substrates Enable Large-Scale Integration
A strong driving force toward increased interaction and connectivity runs through our society. And it does not end when people put down their smartphones, tablets, or smartwatches. The ability to enjoy constant connection to communication and information began with ubiquitous mobile consumer electronics, but this functionality is now becoming integrated on larger scales into items such as automobiles, video walls, and household appliances — namely refrigerators.

Fiber Lasers Enable Advances in Product Technologies
Fiber Lasers Enable Advances in Product Technologies
Fiber lasers are a recognized powerhouse in the manufacturing sector of numerous industries because of the throughput, reliability, and low cost of operation they make possible for machines that cut, weld, mark, and micromachine materials. Specific design elements distinguish fiber lasers among industrial laser sources, and their unique attributes are enabling breakthrough manufacturing process capabilities. Specifically, high-power single-mode lasers for remote welding and widely flexible pulsed fiber lasers can address different process challenges by electronic control of operating parameters.

Optical Coating Innovations Push Performance
Optical Coating Innovations Push Performance
Optical coatings improve the performance of mirrors, lenses, and light-emitting or absorbing semiconductors by enhancing transmission and reducing reflection. They also harden surfaces, allowing components to withstand harsh environments or take pounding from high-power lasers. To continue to meet rising demands, however, coatings need advancements in control, measurements, and cost — areas vendors seek to address by rolling out innovations.

Materials and Methods for Smart Glass, Smart Windows, and Building Shells
Materials and Methods for Smart Glass, Smart Windows, and Building Shells
Wed, Dec 5, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST
This webinar will introduce a cost-efficient, high-performing smart glass system for windows, windshields, roof panes, and building envelopes. The system is based on a reflective structure that switches to transmissive when an index-matching fluid is introduced. You will learn about the technology used to develop and fabricate the smart glass system, including the use of optofluidics and 3D printing. The presenter, professor Keith Goossen, will also discuss future goals and potential applications for his smart heating, cooling and lighting system.
