Sun acquisition

April 21, 2009

Oracle Corporation is to acquire the Santa Clara, California computer company Sun in a deal worth approximately $7.4bn (£5bn).

Oracle president Safra Catz said that he believed that the acquired business would contributemore than$1.5bn to Oracle’s operating profit in the first year, increasing tomore than$2bn in the second year.

He added: ‘This would make the Sun acquisition more profitable in per-share contribution in the first year than we had planned for the acquisitions of BEA, PeopleSoft and Siebel combined.’

Coloured crystals

April 21, 2009

Researchers at Cambridge University’s Centre of Molecular Materials for Photonics and Electronics (CMMPE) are developinghigh-colour-resolution laser displays using liquid-crystal laser technology.

They recently demonstrated a2D liquid-crystal laser array, which emitted red, green and blue colours simultaneously when optically pumped with a single 430nm source.

The researchers believe that such liquid-crystal lasers could be used to replace the individual RGB lasers that are currently required in emerging laser displays, leading to a reduction in materials and manufacturing costs.
