Tiny 'metalens' could bring SLR camera quality to your phone


Your smartphone's camera quality is limited for a number of reasons (sensor size, for example), but one of the biggest factors is optics: you need a lot of glass to deliver the pin-sharp photos of a DSLR or mirrorless camera. That's where Harvard researchers might help. They've developed a "metalens" that substitutes the usual glass with quartz plates full of microscopic titanium oxide structures, whose patterns guide light toward the camera sensor. The technology not only leads to a much smaller lens (it's just 0.08 inches across in testing), but focus that beats even the better lenses you find in stores -- it can resolve details 400 nanometers wide, or smaller than a wavelength of light.

Process, material, component and product quality


IBM Prescriptive Quality on Cloud employs an advanced set of statistical algorithms called Quality Early Warning System (QEWS) which detect emerging quality problems sooner and with fewer false alarms than typically achieved by traditional statistical process control. For a given level of statistical confidence QEWS usually needs fewer data points than SPC methods. The user experience is designed to easily organize, analyze, manage, and share process and quality data across lines of business.
