In biology they describe as 'the edge effect' the tendency for a greater variety and density of organisms to cluster in the boundaries between communities. As in nature, so too in a networked economy: variety, density and interaction are success factors. The trouble is that most of us work inside traditional environments, not between them - in a company,(More)
The microchannel spatial light modulator (MSLM) is a versatile, highly sensitive, and optically addressed modulator that is well suited for low-light level real-time optical information processing. The image processing operations that can be achieved with the MSLM include contrast reversal, contrast enhancement, edge enhancement, image addition and(More)
Significant improvements in the spatial resolution, framing speed, optical quality, and space-domain image-processing capabilities of the microchannel spatial light modulator have been realized by employing oblique-cut rather than z-cut LiNbO(3) crystals, high-strip-current (250-microA) microchannel plates, and an acceleration grid in the gap of the device.(More)
Pattern recognition via optical correlation generally requires an incoherent-to-coherent input image converter and benefits from edge enhancement of the input image. We have created a photoaddressed nematic liquid crystal differentiating spatial light modulator that fulfills both these functions. Developments in photoaddressing are discussed, and(More)
growing number of companies face a dilemma: They know how to make amazing things technically, but are at a loss to understand what to make. Companies that became successful through technological leadership are among the most sensitive to this problem; they realize better than most that technological leadership is expensive to achieve and seldom lasts very(More)
