A bright future for new lighting method
December 20, 2014
If you have a Christmas tree in your house, the chances are that the intensely bright lights are provided by light emitting diodes (LEDs). These are the result of a quiet technological revolution in lighting which began as far back as 1907. The number of electrons and their distribution in the atomic orbits of a single isolated atom depend on the type of atom (gold or oxygen or iron etc) and on the temperature of the atom, since heating an atom causes some of the electrons to jump into higher orbits. In a solid, a huge number of atoms bond to form an atomic lattice in which the orbits of the electrons of each atom encroach and form molecular orbits. In solids which conduct electricity some of the electrons bound to the atomic nucleus in the isolated atom, become free. These electrons are responsible for the electric current when the conductor is connected in a circuit.

The Retail Automation Market to see 16.7% CAGR to 2020: Detailed Segmentation by Product Type, and Industry Vertical
December 19, 2014
ReportsnReports.com adds Retail Automation Market by Product Type, Industry & Geography - Analysis & Forecast to 2014 - 2020 global research report in the semiconductor and electronics business intelligence collection of its store. The global Retail Automation market is expected to reach $275.43billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 16.7% between 2014 and 2020. The lucrative growth rate of the retail market in future is the major factor driving the Retail Automation market. Retail Automation has not only made the shopping experience easy and convenient for shoppers but has also enhanced their expectation for better quality of service. The stationary/fixed point of sale (POS) terminal is expected to have a higher market size as compared to the mobile/portable POS terminal and contactless POS terminal, in the physical electronic POS terminal category. The major reason behind its market size is due to the low adoption rate of mobile and contactless POS terminal among retailers. The food/non-food industry holds the highest market share in Americas Retail Automation market, due to the rise in the income level of shoppers, and the convenience provided by retail automated products to the shoppers, during shopping. However, Europe is estimated to grow at the highest growth rate between 2014 and 2020.
