Ophir-Spiricon’s UV ND filter system consists of modular, slide-in, neutral-density attenuators and a C-mount holder designed to attenuate ultraviolet laser beams so they are at the proper intensity for charge-coupled device or pyroelectric cameras. The filters work on lasers in the 190-380 nm range and cover wavelengths including Excimer, Helium Cadmium, and Nd:YAG UV harmonic. Six filters provide an attenuation range of 0.3-6.0 optical densities (OD), permitting best use of the dynamic range of beam-profiling cameras. The filters include 0.3, 0.7, 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, and 4.0 OD. Two filters can be used at once for attenuation in 0.3 or 0.4 OD steps. The filters are made from fused silica with an Inconel coating on one surface to effect the attenuation of incident light.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.

France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.

One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
