Thought for the month
“There is nothing noble in being superior to some other man. The true nobility is in being superior to your previous self.” Probably W.L. Sheldon, US lecturer on ethics (1858 – 1907) rather than Ernest Hemingway.

Ultrafast system to be implanted in Leeds
University of Leeds agrees $1.4M contract with PVD Products, Inc. to supply an Ultrafast Laser Plasma Implantation System to scale up the technique developed in their existing PLD system, delivered by PVD Products in 2008. ULPI uses high-powered, short-pulsed lasers to generate highly energetic plasma from a target material that is then implanted into another material. The university has spun-out the company Ultramatis to capitalize on the commercial developments of this powerful technique.
