PI (PHYSIK INSTRUMENTE) LP
Data Center Architectures of Tomorrow
The advent of Silicon Photonics (SiP) means photonic elements are now being fabricated
alongside microelectronics on silicon wafers. SiP technology offers many benefits: it facilitates
the next levels of data throughput and parallelism, it enables new data center architectures, and
it addresses unsustainable escalating energy demands. PI’s innovation: Fast, Multi-Channel
Alignment System for Next Generation Silicon Photonics Test & Production is a novel,
modular, industrial-class system that automates SiP alignments for packaging and test, and
does so with groundbreaking speed, precision and device safety. PI’s FMPA is absolutely key
to economic deployment of energy-efficient, high-capacity data interconnects fundamental to
tomorrow’s data center architectures.
BROOKHAVEN NATIONAL LABORATORY
An Innovative Crystallization Tool
Precipitant determination and high throughput screening of chemical libraries are crucial rate
limiting components in the identification of chemical compounds for further bio-medical research.
Flex Plate’s simple versatile design addresses these crucial rate-limiting components by reducing
both the time and components such as proteins and chemicals needed for the experiments. In
addition, the Flex Plate replaces the need for plate handling robot or manual removal of the
crystal from the plate. These features make Flex Plate an innovative crystallization tool for high
throughput screening of chemicals (drug discovery) and precipitants (for crystal discovery).
ADVANCED ANALYTICAL TECHNOLOGIES INC.
Capable DNA Detection
The Fragment Analyzer FEMTO Pulse was developed to address the unmet needs of the
genomic industry: namely ultra-low detection limits and the ability to rapidly determine the
size/quantity of large fragment DNA up to 165,000 base pairs, which shortens the analysis
time to one hour, as opposed to the 14-36 hours required for traditional pulse-field gel
electrophoresis. This was the result of more than six years of research into new methods for
DNA detection. In the world of capillary electrophoresis, this breakthrough is new to the world
of technology. The system is capable of measuring ultra-low levels of DNA/RNA, which enables
technology such as Free-Floating Tumor DNA, single-cell analysis and PCR-free preparation of
“next generation libraries.”
908 DEVICES INC.
A Rugged Analyzer
The G908 Ballistic GC High Pressure Mass Spectrometer is a unique combination of
ballistically heated capillary GC column technology and a microscale, high pressure ion trap
mass spectrometer, which provides users with a rugged analyzer capable of rapidly separating,
identifying and quantifying compounds from complex hydrocarbon mixtures and beyond.
Designed for at-line, online, laboratory and remote use with operator centric software and
user serviceable hardware modules, G908 is a feature-rich analytical device with a low SWaP
signature. G908 separates molecules in complex mixtures using gas chromatography and then
measures these molecules using a miniaturized mass analyzer.

The new transparent ceramic GLO Transparent Ceramic Scintillator provides dramatically
improved throughput for MeV radiography and cone-beam computed tomography. It has been
scaled up to 12” x 12” optically transparent sheets that are mechanically tough and radiation
hard. GLO offers spatial resolution that is better than the available glass scintillators for lens-coupled radiography, while its combined light yield and stopping power improvement results in
>7x greater scanning speed, with higher contrast performance. Currently employed industrial
X-ray computed tomography systems for imaging of high-attenuating, high-density components
such as rocket motors, engines, turbines, automotive assemblies and heavy machinery are
costly to operate since they take so long to acquire useful imagery. Implementation of the
GLO scintillator will allow an image that used to take a full day to be acquired in one hour,
