Caption: Paint "signatures" from Hurdy Gurdy (top) and Autumn Harbour (bottom) were obtained using a laser power of less than 0.5 milliwatts on areas of blue.
The laser requires a few milliwatts of power--about as much as a laser pointer does--minimizing the risk of samples absorbing the laser's energy and overheating.
Texas Instruments introduced five power management integrated circuits that acquire and manage microwatts (uW) to milliwatts of power harvested from light, heat, or mechanical energy sources.
By combining innovative circuits in IBM's 32-nanometer silicon-on-insulator complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (SOI CMOS) technology with advanced vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) and photodetectors fabricated by Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations USA (formerly Emcore), Proesel and his colleagues created a power-efficient optical communication link operating at 25 gigabits per second using just 24 milliwatts of total wall-plug power, or 1 pJ/bit.
* 940 rim light with the high optical output of 980 milliwatts.
The drives consume up to 6 watts of power, and 600 milliwatts in idle, Intel said.
The team produced 14,303 milliwatts of electricity, besting the 22 high school and middle school teams that participated in the challenge, and taking first place in the middle school division.
The boost charger for nano (ultra low) power energy harvesting, controls the microwatts to milliwatts of power generated from a number of sources, such as solar, thermoelectric, electromagnetic and vibration, and stores the extracted energy in various storage elements, including Li-ion batteries and super capacitors.
The drive also sips power, using only 150 milliwatts when active and 75 milliwatts while in idle mode.
Even when cooled, they generate only milliwatts of power, which renders them inefficient for practical use.
Alaser pointer that can be bought over the internet, a socalled Class IIIa device, has a power output of less than five milliwatts. That''s pretty puny, less that one thousandth the power of a domestic light bulb, and fi ures from the United States Foods and Drugs Administration have suggested that you might have to stare down the beam for as long as ten seconds to suffer any eye damage - the exact figure depends on the colour of the laser light.
The laser with the high output of 450 milliwatts will allow a DVD disc to record 8 hours of video, two times more than with a conventional 250-milliwatt laser, Sanyo said.
