In a study that contradicts the received wisdom on health impacts of climate change, scientists say that we shouldn’t expect substantial reduction in winter deaths as a result of global warming. This new research is in IOP Publishing’s Environmental Research Letters journal.
By providing specialist software engineering skills alongside an in-depth understanding of fluid dynamics principles, Tessella’s GUI improvements expand the commercial value of the PULSIM software for TNO.
Nanoscribe is glad to welcome Harvard University (Cambridge, MA) amongst the Photonic Professional GT users.
The efficiency of synchrotron light sources is heavily dependent on the vacuum quality within the beam lines. Small mass spectrometers (RGAs) are routinely utilized to provide real-time vacuum monitoring for confirmation of contaminant status, and the associated radiation level is a potential issue.
An all-new vertical and mobile mounting tower gives the Hiden HPR-30 low-pressure process gas analyser stable support for mounting directly to small and light-loading process chamber ports at heights up to 1.8M(6ft).
Hyperspectral characterization of various types of solar cells will be presented at the 42nd IEEE PVSC meeting by Laurent Lombez (IRDEP)
Photon etc has developed a hyperspectral imaging platform (IMA) for solar cell’s analysis in collaboration with IRDEP (Institute of Research and Development on Photovoltaic Energy, France).
