The article reports on the adoption of Mitsubishi 5036-DLZ, a laser application machine by an industrial supply company Accuburn in order to move into laser manufacturing. By doing so the company is aiming at increased work volume and long term growth opportunities. According to Steve Smith, plant manager of the company they did not have work waiting for the equipment when they bought it. He further added that as soon as the LZ was installed, the company was quoting out new jobs. With the system's speed and reliability, AccuBurn began turning over an increasingly larger volume of work.

    The universality of two mechanisms of motion of patterns in nonlinear optics is demonstrated. In the first one, two-dimensional disordered patterns are shown to scroll with constant velocity after transients are discarded. In the second case, pattern motion is induced by background modulations....
