It was founded in Eindhoven in 1891 by Gerard Philips and his father Frederik. It is one of the largest electronics companies in the world and employs around 122,000 people across more than 60 countries.Philips is organized into three main divisions: Philips Consumer Lifestyle , Philips Healthcare and Philips Lighting. As of 2012 Philips was the largest manufacturer of lighting in the world measured by applicable revenues. In 2013, the company announced the sale of the bulk of its remaining consumer electronics operations to Japan's Funai Electric Co but in October 2013, the deal to Funai Electric Co was broken off and the consumer electronics operations remain under Philips. Philips said it would seek damages for breach of contract in the $200-million sale.Philips has a primary listing on the Euronext Amsterdam stock exchange and is a constituent of the AEX index. It has a secondary listing on the New York Stock Exchange. Wikipedia.

A method includes displaying an iconic image of the human body and a list of predetermined anatomical regions. The method further includes displaying, in response to a user selected anatomical region, a scan box over a sub-portion of the iconic image. The method further includes receiving an input indicative of at least one of a scan box location of interest or a scan box geometry of interest, with respect to the anatomical region, of the first user. The method further includes at least one of re-locating or changing a geometry of the first initial scan box, in response thereto, creating a first user defined scan box for the first user. The method further includes creating a first transformation between a first template image representative of the selected anatomical region and the iconic image with the first user defined scan box for the first user, and storing the first transformation.

A therapy planning system and method generate an optimal treatment plan accounting for changes in anatomy. Therapy is delivered to the subject according to a first auto-planned optimal treatment plan based on a first image of a subject. A second image of the subject is received after a period of time. The second image is registered with the first image to generate a deformation map accounting for physiological changes. The second image is segmented into regions of interest using the deformation map. A mapped delivered dose is computed for each region of interest using the dose delivery goals and the deformation map. The first treatment plan is merged with the segmented regions of the second image and the mapped delivered dose during optimization.

A light emitting diode (LED) structure has semiconductor layers, including a p-type layer, an active layer, and an n-type layer. The p-type layer has a bottom surface, and the n-type layer has a top surface though which light is emitted. A copper layer has a first portion electrically connected to and opposing the bottom surface of the p-type layer. A dielectric wall extends through the copper layer to isolate a second portion of the copper layer from the first portion. A metal shunt electrically connects the second portion of the copper layer to the top surface of the n-type layer. P-metal electrodes electrically connect to the first portion, and n-metal electrodes electrically connect to the second portion, wherein the LED structure forms a flip chip. Other embodiments of the methods and structures are also described.

A lighting device for providing decorative lighting is disclosed. In one embodiment, the lighting device comprises a base, said base comprises a base for retro-fitting a traditional incandescent light bulb, a continuous optical element in which a string of a plurality of light emitting diodes is arranged, and an envelope encapsulating said continuous optical element such that the lighting device resembles a traditional incandescent light bulb.
