The Electrada Corporation of Los Angeles has announced plans for a new “Photo‐Optronic Laboratory”, described as “one of the first commercial undertakings to study the nature of light in its application to electronics and chemistry”. The laboratory, now under construction at Culver City. Calif., will be equipped to perform very precise measurements of the physical and chemical effects of light (such as the speed and resolution of film emulsions and other light‐sensitive coatings) within the microsecond‐micron range. In addition, special devices will be installed to study the effects of light on crystals and photoconductors. The laboratory will be headed by Robert M. Lemmen, and is expected to be in operation before the end of the year.
