Ultraviolet blood irradiation (UBI or UVB)

Blood irradiation therapy is a procedure in which the blood is exposed to low level red light (often laser light) for therapeutic reasons. Most research on blood irradiation therapy has been conducted in Germany, Russia and China, while smaller-scale research has been performed in other countries such as Britain. Blood irradiation therapy can be administered through a catheter in a vein, through the blood vessels inside the nose or applied externally through the skin. It is not related to the pr...

NASA’s Technology For Vision Algorithms To Catch Defects in Screen Displays

NASA has sent more than a few robotic missions into space, but it never loses sight of its goal to enable human exploration of the cosmos. A core component of planning for future manned missions is the Human Systems Integration Division, headquartered at Ames Research Center, which focuses on advancing our understanding of how people process information and interact with mechanical and electronic systems. In 2013 Radiant Zemax introduced the ProMetric I Imaging Colorimeter, desi...
