ELECTRONICS:Gigahertz-Optik’s ISD-1.6-Si-1 and ISD-1.6-Si-FC-1 radiant power detectors feature a compact 16mm diameter integrating sphere for beam emitter type light sources like laser diode dyes & optical fibers.The small footprint 43.5 x 25 x 17.5 mm size detector primary function is to fit inside existing equipment and tight enclosed spaces to measure beam power through its 3 mm measurement port. The silicon photodiode detector offers a wide spectral range from 400 to 1100 nm and a typical absolute sensitivity of 200 µA/W at 630 nm (500 mW max power). The detector head is traceably calibrated and certified to international standards.
The ISD-1.6-Si-FC-1 model includes a FC connector to allow connection of a spectrometer in case spectral data is required. The FC connector is mounted opposite the measurement port to collect the maximum amount of light signal for high resolution spectrometers with limited sensitivity.
A near-infrared version with an InGaAs photodiode to cover the 800 nm to 1700 nm spectral range is also available.
The detector is compatible for power measurements with all Gigahertz-Optik optometers. The ISD-1.6-Si-1 integrating sphere price is $1088 and the ISD-1.6-Si-FC-1 is $1,131.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.

For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
