    The Optical Society Launches Innovative Products and Services for Digital Library Users
    08 maio 2012
    The Optical Society (OSA) today announced the launch of several enhancements to its digital library, Optics InfoBase. Central to the new services that have launched is the reinvention of its journal article interface. With this new interface, users can more easily access and browse each article’s full-text, article-level metrics, interactive and embedded equations, and more than 200,000 images via the new Optics ImageBank product. Additionally, today’s initial launch allows OSA the opportunity to make functional adjustments to all of these innovative offerings based on user feedback. The goal is to refine each new offering over the next six months.

    Conquering LED Efficiency Droop: Overcoming mysterious phenomenon could lead to affordable LED lighting
    30 abril 2012
    Like a coffee enthusiast who struggles to get a buzz from that third cup of morning joe, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) seem to reach a point where more electricity no longer imparts the same kick and productivity levels-off. Now a team of researchers from California and Japan has devised a new design for green and blue LEDs that avoids much of this vexing efficiency droop. The findings will be presented at the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO: 2012), taking place May 6-11 in San Jose, Calif.
