Random information on the term “Objective”:
In optical engineering, the objective is the optical element that gathers light from the object being observed and focuses the light rays to produce a real image. Objectives can be a single lens or mirror, or combinations of several optical elements. They are used in microscopes, telescopes, cameras, slide projectors, CD players and many other optical instruments. Objectives are also called object lenses, object glasses, or objective glasses.
The objective lens of a microscope is the one at the bottom near the sample. At its simplest, it is a very high-powered magnifying glass, with very short focal length. This is brought very close to the specimen being examined so that the light from the specimen comes to a focus inside the microscope tube. The objective itself is usually a cylinder containing one or more lenses that are typically made of glass; its function is to collect light from the sample.
Microscope objectives are characterized by two parameters: magnification and numerical aperture. The magnification typically ranges from 4× to 100×. It is combined with the magnification of the eyepiece to determine the overall magnification of the microscope; a 4× objective with a 10× eyepiece produces an image that is 40 times the size of the object. Numerical aperture for microscope lenses typically ranges from 0.10 to 1.25, corresponding to focal lengths of about 40 mm to 2 mm, respectively.
Random information on the term “AIM”:
The AIM alliance was formed on October 2, 1991 between Apple, IBM, and Motorola to create a new, grandly unified, computing standard based on the POWER instruction set architecture.:69 It was further intended to cope with Microsoft’s monopoly and Microsoft’s and Intel’s duopoly. The alliance yielded the launch of Taligent, Kaleida Labs, the highly successful PowerPC CPU family, the Common Hardware Reference Platform (CHRP) hardware platform standard, and Apple’s highly successful Power Macintosh computer line.
From the 1980s into the 1990s, the computer industry was moving from a model of just individual personal computers toward an interconnected world, where no one company could afford to be vertically isolated anymore. Infinite Loop says “most people at Apple knew the company would have to enter into ventures with some of its erstwhile enemies, license its technology, or get bought”.:428-429 Furthermore, Microsoft’s monopoly and the Wintel duopoly threatened competition industrywide, and the Advanced Computing Environment consortium was underway.
