Informative Lens Innovation Newsletter

From Resolve Optics Ltd.

resolveopticspr144-imageChesham, UK — Resolve Optics has published** the Spring 2017 issue of ‘Lens Innovation – its popular newsletter dedicated to addressing topical subjects, technological developments, interesting applications and breaking news involving optics and optical systems.

In this new issue of ‘Lens Innovation‘ the technology forum discusses the challenges faced in designing high performance lenses for the latest generation of megapixel cameras and sensors.

For applications that are subject to temperature fluctuations, it is important to develop an optical system that is insensitive to thermal change in the surrounding environment to avoid system defocus.

The Information Guidelines feature explains different approaches to optical athermalisation.

If you are using a standard lens in areas where there is radiation, in weeks or a few months you will lose your image.

The Viewpoint feature addresses what should you consider before selecting a lens for an application subject to radiation.

Monitoring in the depths of the oceans places great demands on all camera system components. Case Study describes how a leading European camera manufacturer turned to Resolve Optics for a compact HD lens that fitted their requirements.

The Spring 2017 issue also provides an introduction to the new Model 357 radiation resistant HD zoom lens and describes how this new lens is providing engineers with a clearer safe view of their nuclear reprocessing plant.

“Online Measurement Is a Mess…”

Says Former Chartbeat CEO Tony Haile | Mr. Haile joined the latest episode of the WSJ Media Mix podcast

From the Wall Street Journal: By Jack Marshall
Nov. 16, 2016 4:21 p.m. ET

For publishers and media companies, measuring audiences online was supposed to be easy compared with “legacy” media such as print and TV.

But as online publishers grapple with a growing array of digital platforms and channels, it turns out tracking audiences size and engagement across them all isn’t that simple.

“It’s still a bit of a mess really,” said Tony Haile, the former CEO of online analytics company Chartbeat, during this week’s WSJ Media Mix podcast.

“The most interesting thing to me is whether platforms are going to have to be brought into line with each other,” he said. “Up until now platforms have been able to just say these are the numbers, and everybody has trusted them.”

Fluidigm Summer 2011 eNewsletter

fluidigm-header2Villebon sur Yvette, France & South San Francisco CA, USA — Fluidigm has announced its Summer 2011 eNewsletter  that researchers from the National Cancer Centre, Singapore, KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital, and the Singapore General Hospital report upon their evaluation of nanofluidics technology using DNA extracted from peripheral blood and buccal wash samples for high-throughput SNP Genotyping in a clinical setting.

Another independent paper presented in the newsletter discusses how single-cell gene expression profiling reveals qualitatively distinct CD8 T cells elicited by different gene-based vaccines.

The paper describes how researchers at the National Cancer Institute, Rockville, MD, USA gained an understanding of the mechanism of protective immunity mediated by CDS T cells, how the process is dependent upon the definition of heterogeneity, and also how immune responses are generated by different vaccines.
