A million times better
July 14, 2014
Nonlinear optical materials are widely used in laser systems. However, high light intensity and long propagation are required to produce strong nonlinear optical effects. Researchers at The University of Texas at Austin and the Technische Universitaet Muenchen created metamaterials with a million times stronger nonlinear optical response, compared to the traditional nonlinear materials, and demonstrated frequency conversion in films 100 times thinner than human hair using light intensity comparable to that of a laser pointer. Lasers have a fixed place in many fields of application. Yet, there are still wavelengths for which either no systems exist, or at best only large and expensive ones. On the other hand remote sensing and medical applications call for compact laser systems, for example with wavelengths from the near infrared to the Terahertz region.

Shifting threats spur sales of fighter planes; Budget constraints put focus on equipping older jets with new technology
July 14, 2014
FULL TEXT On Bastille Day in Paris 100 years ago, spectators at the traditional military parade could scarcely have imagined the scale of destruction that was about to be unleashed on much of Europe, including the first use of military air power. Since then, control of airspace has become a basic strategic doctrine. But which airspace, and how to control it in a period of game-changing developments in weapons, sensors and cybersystems, are questions as challenging as at any time in the past century.

HUG 2014 Reveals a New Honeywell
July 12, 2014
Keywords: Honeywell, Honeywell User Group, Experion PKS, Oil & Gas, Lean Execution for Automation Projects, Universal I/O. Summary The Honeywell that ARC Advisory Group saw at the 2014 Honeywell User Group (HUG) is a different company; with some very interesting new offerings in some critical areas of process automation. Over 1,300 attendees were present at the 39th HUG this year, which represents a 25 percent increase over last year. It's also the first year that Honeywell has moved HUG out of its longtime host venue in Phoenix and moved it to the JW Marriott Resort and Spa in San Antonio, Texas. Everyone seemed pleased with the new location and, hopefully, this marks the beginning of a trend for Honeywell.
