<p>Den procentuella påverkan av temperatur och fukt är relativt lika, men däremot sker dimensionsförändringar snabbare vid en temperaturförändring eftersom polyestern har en konstant expansionskoefficient oberoende av tjocklek, vilket betyder att dimensionen förändras på 2-3 minuter. Dimensionsförändring pga fukt sker långsammare eftersom polyestern (men till viss del även emulsionen) absorberar och avger fukt och det tar 1 timma per 0,0254 mm (1 mil) filmtjocklek, vilket betyder att en 0,18 mm tjock film behöver ca 7 timmar innan den anpassat sig helt till omgivande luftfuktighet.</p>

The company's most recent effort is an interface package for DDR FCRAM II (double-data-rate fast-cycle RAM). The intellectual property, introduced last week, is offered at speeds up to 666Mbits/s per pin for use in 0.13-micron process at IBM Corp. or Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. Ltd.

James Moore said he had daily exposure to isopropyl alcohol that was used as a cleaner and intermittent exposure to other chemicals while he worked at IBM's hard disk drive manufacturing plants in San Jose from 1966 to 1993. He said he exhibited multiple heath problems including nasal congestion, headaches and color blindness during his tenure. And he claimed IBM provided little training in the chemical hazards at the workplace.

Under cross-examination, an attorney for IBM pointed out multiple discrepancies in Moore's current testimony and past depositions, undercutting many of his statements. He also suggested Moore showed signs that he felt safe at the IBM plant and generally well treated by its managers even after being diagnosed with a non-Hodgkins lymphoma in January 1995.

Thursday's testimony focused mainly on Moore's almost daily exposure to isopropyl alcohol used to clean drives and other surfaces. Moore said for many years at IBM he kept a half-gallon jug of the alcohol on a cart that he took with him whenever he walked the floor of the plant.

It was everywhere. We used it so much I didn't really think of it as a chemical,” said Moore. The little white cotton gloves [IBM provided] would snag on things so we didn't bother to wear them,” he added.

During a break in the trial, prosecuting attorney Richard Alexander said he would later show that IBM had isopropyl alcohol in concentrations at or near 100 percent pumped into storage vats at the company. Doctors use only 70 percent strength alcohol in clinics and consumer are warned not to use it for more than seven days in a row, he said.

People think its innocuous but its not, it's a poison,” Alexander said.

In earlier testimony, Moore said he also had been exposed to acetone, methylene chloride methanol (MCM) and trichloral ethylene while working at IBM.

Alexander produced an IBM health exam dated March 16, 1967, that said Moore experienced profuse nasal discharge post exposure to solvent.” However, Moore said he had no recollection of the event.

Moore did recall getting over-the-counter sinus medications and throat lozenges about once a month at a small IBM medical clinic in Building 5 at Cottle Road where he worked for several years. I'd get all plugged up and thought I had sinus problems,” Moore said.

It's difficult to fit that many pixels into a small panel,” said Sandeep Gupta, president and chief executive of MicroDisplay, adding that the panel has been under development for two years.

Most LCoS solutions use three panels, which Gupta said are difficult to properly align and achieve satisactory pixel convergence.

MicroDisplay's major competitor in this arena, Royal Philips Electronics, manufactures an LCoS panel measuring 1.15in. diagonally, a bit larger than MicroDisplay's.

MicroDisplay's solution buys smaller optics, and the fact that the display is smaller can buy cost savings,” said Chris Chinnock, an analyst with Insight Media, Norwalk, Conn.

Whether the company succeeds with the display will hinge on its ability to mass-produce it, according to Chinnock, who noted that the Netherlands' Philips has its own fab, while MicroDisplay must rely on manufacturing partners.
