 February 2015 – The SPIE Advanced Lithography conference in San Jose featured 7 technical track conferences in one venue. The primary focus was on two tracks: (1) the highly anticipated arrival of EUV [Extreme Ultraviolet] lithography [Conference 9422] and (2) Alternative Lithography Technologies [Conference 9423]. The EUV track has 14 sections covering viability and need [...]

 January 24, 2012, SPIE Electronic Imaging Conference, Burlingame, CA—Pete Bradshaw and Debargha Mukherjee from Google describe their efforts in promoting 3-D videos. The first issue facing adoption of 3-D is that there is very little content available. Some of the first 3-D videos took a lot of work just to get the two cameras set [...]

 January 24, 2012, SPIE, Electronic Imaging Conference, Burlingame, CA—William Freeman from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology talked about computational photography. Today’s digital cameras have only replaced the imaging system, using a semiconductor imager versus film. Most of the camera functions are still analog. In computational photography the user can modify any or all of the [...]

 January 24, 2012, SPIE Electronic Imaging Conference, Burlingame, CA—two technical teams presented the issues and suggested solutions for cinematic to television conversion for good 3-D. The complementary talks described the basic technology and specific techniques for the conversion processes. Didier Doyen noted that the problems are due to the changes in size and viewing distance [...]
