In a laboratory test, a team of applied physicists placed the device on a hot plate and watched it through an infrared camera as the temperature rose.
Whether or not you like Microsoft's updated Surface tablets will depend on your needs. On one hand, the tablets can be great for working on the go, especially if you spring for a $130 keyboard cover. On the flip side, the new versions still lack the elegance and fun that iPads are known for and many Android-based tablets now offer.

Security surveillance over large distances is now possible thanks to the new infrared Dragon Dome LED from Osram Opto Semiconductors. The focused beam of this high-power Infrared LED (IRED) achieves a range of more than 100 meters. It has a compact design and does not need an external lens.
One problem in developing more efficient organic LED light bulbs and displays for TVs and phones is that much of the light is polarized in one direction and thus trapped within the light-emitting diode, or LED. University of Utah physicists believe they have solved the problem by creating a new organic molecule that is shaped like rotelle – wagon-wheel pasta – rather than spaghetti.
As a modern culture, we crave artificial white lights -- the brighter the better, and ideally using less energy than ever before. To meet the ever-escalating demand for more lighting in more places and to improve the bulbs used in sports stadiums, car headlights and street lamps, scientists are scrambling to create better light-emitting diodes....
To capture all the details of a crime scene, you might take many photos at close range. To get the whole scene at once, you could use a wide-angle or fisheye lens; but without an especially large lens you would be sacrificing the fine resolution that would help you catch that partial footprint you might otherwise have missed.
Power Technology announced that it is introducing a new laser speckle reducer module for machine vision applications. The IQ7 Laser Speckle Reducer is specifically designed to reduce local interferences and unwanted intensity patterns improving overall laser imaging quality.
Leading industrial lighting manufacturer Larson Electronics has released an LED light cart designed to combine high output illumination with the convenience of portable operation. The Larson Electronics WAL-WBC-2X300LED portable LED work area light cart provides the effectiveness of high power illumination combined with the convenience of portable operation.

Imagine an electronic display nearly as clear as a window, or a curtain that illuminates a room, or a smartphone screen that doubles in size, stretching like rubber. Now imagine all of these being made from the same material. Researchers have developed a transparent, elastic organic light-emitting device, or OLED, that could one day make all these possible.

This new 4.3” LCD uses specialized glass with In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology to give extremely viewing angles of 80° minimum all the way around.
E-readers are more effective than reading on paper for some with dyslexia, according to results published September 18 in the open access journal PLOS ONE by Mathew Schneps from the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and colleagues from other institutions. Their results suggest it is the use of short lines on the display, and not the device itself, that leads to the benefits observed in this study.
