Label-free quantitative analysis of sperm cells by interferometric microscopy by Dr. Natan Shaked
A novel phase interferometric technique will allow measuring live sperm cells, without any staining and in a fully quantitative manner. This device will allow the embryologist to select the most suitable sperm cell for in-vitro fertilization (IVF), and is anticipated to substantially increase the success rate of IVF, which stands today on about 30% for woman under 35 years old.
Hyperspectral MEMS (“HSM”) Filter by Prof. D. Mendlovic and Prof. S. Krylov
HSM enables fast and reliable scanning of wavelengths for various sensing, detection and imaging applications. It aims to improve image quality and to equip any standard camera with hyperspectral imaging capabilities. It is a highly accurate, MEMS based, tunable spectral filter with closed loop feedback mechanism. HSM is especially suited for mobile cameras as well as other cameras, spectrometers, medical and industrial cameras, etc. Some of its unique advantages include small form factor, adding hyperspectral functionality to all camera types, wide wavelength range (UV, VIS, NIR, IR), flexible transmission spectra, power efficiency, and low cost.

Congratulations to Leslie Banks-Sills who was elected for a second, four year term as President of the European Structural Integrity Society (ESIS) http://www.structuralintegrity.eu/ The Society has over 500 members from over 20 countries in Europe. The aims of ESIS include development and extension of knowledge in all aspects of structural integrity, as well as dissemination of that knowledge world-wide with the objectives of improving the safety and performance of engineering equipment, individual components and structures. She is also President of the local organization: Israel Structural Integrity Group (ISIG).
