Specialty Fibers for Er:YAG Lasers

Infrared Fiber Systems (Silver Spring, MD) produces HPTM Fiber, a Germanium Oxide glass fiber for use with Er:YAG and Er:YSGG lasers. Transmission range is from visible to 3.0 microns, with typical absorption of 0.5 dB/m at 2.94 microns and 0.25 dB/m at 2.79 microns. HP Fiber is non-toxic, has good flexibility, high mechanical strength, and can handle up to 20 watts of laser power.

Light Guide Foils

CoActive Technologies KDM (Newton, MA) has expanded its family of light guide foils to include devices with a thickness of less than 200μm. The light guide foils are designed to evenly distribute light from side-firing LEDs, providing bright, uniform illumination of keypads for handheld electronic devices. Backlight coloring can be software-controlled through the use of multiple sets of colored or RGB LEDs, while use of multiple light guide foils provides a zoned illumination effect. Light guide foils are constructed with poly-carbonate or TPU film materials. Typical luminance is >20Cd/m2 from two LEDs at 5mA/LED.

Solar Panel Power Optimizer

SunMizerTM from Xandex Solar (Petaluma, CA) is a new per-panel DC-to-DC power optimizer that increases solar energy harvest by recovering power that is lost when shade falls on a panel. SunMizer can be installed selectively - only on the solar panels that experience regular shading or soiling.

Reducing the Cost of Energy in Concentrated Solar Power Systems

Concentrated solar power (CSP) and concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) methodologies generate electricity by focusing a large amount of sunlight onto a much smaller area. To maximize efficiency, the sunlight needs to be accurately focused, and the accuracy is limited by the accuracy of the sensors used. A white paper from US Digital discusses why an absolute inclinometer is the most effective sensor solution.
