    Void-Free Die Attach: Why it's important and how to achieve it

    Void-free bonding is defined as voids in the bonding material interface, for example solder, that are equal to or less than 5% of the interface area. Creating a void-free bond is critical in some applications because voids in the interface bond...

    Stemmed Mirrors Minimize Mounting Stress and Deformation

    When flat mirrors are mounted by their edges stress is introduced to the mirror surface, warping the surface and reducing the quality of the reflected wavefront. Thankfully, special types of mirrors called stemmed mirrors decouple positional...
  • Predicting Solar Cell Performance from Terahertz and Microwave Spectroscopy

    Light-Based Imaging is Greening Our World

    In Hong Kong, a remote sensing system with a camera and light beam detect high-polluting cars and summon the driver to an emissions test. At the University of Potsdam, a study shows how terahertz and microwave spectroscopy are used on...
