An eye on vacuum science.

The American Vacuum Society's (AVS), N.Y., N.Y., 53rd annual International Exhibition & Symposium will he held on Nov.12-16, in San Francisco's Moscone West Convention Center. The 2006 Technical Program includes a number of special technical sessions and events. Topical Conferences and Plenary Sessions on Energy Science and Technology, Nucleic Acids at Surfaces, Ultra-Bright Light Sources, Nano-scale Manufacturing, and Biomaterials Interfaces are just a sampling of the topics to be discussed. In the symposium plenary lecture, Stefan Hell, Director of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry, Gottingen, Germany, will discuss dramatic advances in optical imaging, extending these techniques into the nanometer scale for application to complex biological systems.

Memory revenue grows

Worldwide memory revenue is forecast to grow by 20% in 2006 to $59.4 billion. The NAND flash and pseudostatic RAM markets will see the strongest growth. The overall compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2005 to 2010 is forecast to be 6%, bringing worldwide memory revenue to $66.2 billion in 2010. * Gartner,


LED shipments increase

Shipments of high-brightness light emitting diodes (LEDs) reached $4.8 billion in 2005. They are projected to grow at a 13.1% rate to $6.5 billion in 2006 and then increase at a 10.30/0 rate to reach $8.8 billion through 2011. The mobile device LED market, the largest at this time, saw shipments of $2.8 billion in 2005. They will grow at 9.6% rate to reach $3 billion by 2006 and then level off, as mobile devices experience some saturation, to increase at a 5.9% rate to amount to $4.1 billion in 2011.
