Forth Dimension Displays to Supply 3.1 MPixel Spatial Light Modulator Featured in Optalysys Optical Computing Product

DALGETY BAY, Scotland–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kopin Corporation (NASDAQ:KOPN)– Forth Dimension Displays Limited (ForthDD), a wholly owned subsidiary of Kopin Corporation announced today that it is supplying its QXGA 3.1 MPixel Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) to Optalysys. Based in Castleford, UK, Optalysys is a leader in optical computing, having recently launched the world’s first commercial optical processing system, the FT:X 2000, using phase modulation technology. ForthDD is a manufacturer of fast high-resolution SLMs based on ferroelectric liquid crystal on silicon (FLCOS), designed to offer phase modulation at speeds well above 2 kHz. Optical processing comes at a pivotal time of change in computing. Demand for artificial intelligence (AI) is exploding just as silicon-based processing is facing the fundamental problem of Moore’s Law breaking down. Optalysys is addressing this problem with its revolutionary optical processing technology, enabling new levels of AI performance for high resolution image and video-based applications. The technology is being developed to accelerate some of the most demanding processor-intensive tasks at a fraction of the energy consumpti...

9 Soothing Products People Swear By for Sunburn Relief

Not to brag or anything, but in my entire three decades of life, I’ve been fortunate to have only felt the sting of a sunburn once. “A sunburn is a skin response to too much ultraviolet B exposure,” assistant clinical professor at the University of California, San Diego Melanie Palm, M.D., tells SELF. No matter how many layers of sunscreen I applied before hitting the beach that day, or the fact that I sat under an umbrella in a wide-brimmed hat and one-piece swimsuit, it happened. Blame it on my need to constantly wade in the ocean water and bask in the sun and my forgetfulness around reapplying sunscreen instead of staying put in the shade. And just to be clear, the best way to treat a sunburn is to avoid getting one in the first place by using (and reapplying) sunscreen, staying in the shade when possible, and covering your skin. (But if you’re reading this, that probably didn’t all go as planned.) According to Dr. Palm, intense exposure of UVB rays rays can cause a toxic cellular response that affects both the epidermis (the outermost layer of skin) and upper dermis (the second layer of skin). Shortly after exposure, some cells in the upper layers of skin can become so unhea...
