..."While I was busy looking at the show, Nizan was watching the crowds," explained Chen, SCENENET project coordinator. "He could not help noticing the huge number of faint lights from mobile phone screens. People were taking videos of the show. Nizan thought that combining all the videos taken by individuals into a synergetic, enhanced and possibly 3D video could be an interesting idea. We discussed the concept for many months, but it looked too futuristic, risky and complicated."

...The TISA TD ( "Ultrafast High-Average Power Ti:Sapphire Thin-Disk Oscillators and Amplifiers') project was officially launched on 1 December 2013 and is led by the laser development and laser optics department at Stuttgart University (USTUTT) in Germany. Currently, most of the powerful industrial ultrafast laser sources operate in the picosecond range, which is sufficient for precision micromachining of metals. However, in order to achieve optimum precision on transparent materials such as glass and ceramics - widely used, for example, in smartphones and tablets - pulse durations of the order of 100fs are required. Financed under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme for Research and Technological Development, the TISA TD consortium will seek to develop ultrafast, high-average power Ti:sapphire thin-disc oscillators and amplifiers. It is hoped this, in turn, will provide for optimum precision and, what the project coordinator describes as, 'unprecedented' productivity in micro-machining of transparent materials such as glass and ceramics. TISA TD is headed by Dr Marwan Abdou Ahmed, of Stuttgart University's Institute for Laser Tools (IFSW) and coordinated by Dr Andreas Voss, also from the same university. The project will run for three years until December 2016. Commenting on the hoped-for results, Professor Thomas Graf, head of the IFSW, said, 'Along with the very interesting scientific challenges, the development of new ultrashort-pulse disk lasers with a high output power is also of great scientific interest with a view to the increase in productivity with laser-based material processing.' The consortium comprises two laser technologytechnology researchresearch and development centres and four industrial partners represented by two SMEs. Other partners on the project include the institute FEMTO-ST, which is affiliated to the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) and the company Thales Optronique (TOSA), both in France, along with the UK-based companies Element Six (E6), Oxford Lasers (OXFORD) and M-Squared Lasers (M2). The consortium is well balanced and provides expertise covering the entire supply chain, from the laser development and manufacturing process to the actual industrial applications and material processing. Oxford Lasers, for example, is overseeing the system integration and E6 provides the low-loss single crystal CVD diamond windows while M2 will be in charge of the development of the pre-prototype oscillator system. Stuttgart University will be in overall control of the design, realization of the high-power Ti:sapphire thin-disk oscillator while CNRS is responsible for designing and testing a laser processing setup. TOSA, meanwhile, will be in charge of the design, realization and characterization of the high-power Ti:sapphire thin-disk chirped-pulse amplification system."
Michael Zunke, chief technology officer of SafeNet’s Software Monetization Business Unit states that "Security is ever more essential as an enabler for the sustainable innovation of mobile applications and services. Security solutions based on custom hardware security components like dongles and smart cards are not a natural fit for these mobile environments. The industry therefore needs a comprehensive security framework in which software protection is the key ingredient."
