Merely survive or dominate?
IPC
The business world is often compared to a jungle. In the wild, there is survival and death. Surviving means doing the bare minimum to get by, accepting the mantra of "good enough" as long as you make it through the night. But why let yourself be anything less than the best? Why not push yourself to evolve?

The application of advanced ultrasonics in metal plating processes
PCB007
Most surface modification chemical treatments by their very nature contain hazardous and oxidising chemicals; there is a major concern that these chemicals are used maliciously with the intent to manufacture explosives or formulate poisons to harm the public. Cyanide-based plating solutions and high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide used in current techniques are a significant use of these materials in industry.

Electronics that better mimic natural light promise more vivid, healthy illumination
Phys.org
Despite technological leaps in modern electronics, the quality of lighting they provide still leaves much room for improvement. A collaborative team — led by Jian Li, an associate professor of materials science and engineering in the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University — aims to change that. The team hopes to produce devices for lighting that will mimic natural light more precisely than previous technology, enabling users to see things more vividly and in healthier lighted environments, Li said.
