Using numerical modelling, researchers from Russia, the US, and China have discovered previously unknown features of rutile TiO2, which is a promising photocatalyst.
New light-based technologies that facilitate a "look inside" the human body using light — and without cutting into the tissue — promise to enable both compact, wearable devices for point-of-care diagnostics as well as powerful new systems that provide even more information and from even deeper under the skin.
July 4, NASA will fly a solar-powered spacecraft the size of a basketball court within 2,900 miles (4,667 kilometers) of the cloud tops of our solar system's largest planet.
Entanglement in quantum physics is the ability of two or more particles to be related to each other in ways which are beyond what is possible in classical physics.
This video demonstrates the shadowscopy technique which collimates light in the region of interest with camera focused on the object.
This video is the second part of the demonstration of the shadowscopy technique which collimates light in the region of interest with camera focused on the object.
Eric Craven with Ophir Photonics provided us with a tutorial at DCS 2016 on how to co-align visible, near-infrared, and infrared laser beams through the use of a pyroelectric camera array coupled with beam profiling software.
On the last day of SPIE’s 2016 DCS exhibition in Baltimore, Kevin Fogarty with Canon showed us a 19 micron pixel pitch sensor that can achieve a full color and high definition image in extremely low light environments.
Jason Palidwar with Iridian Spectral Technologies spent some time with us on the last day of SPIE’s 2016 DCS exhibition to talk about the challenges encountered in the mid-wave spectrum and how his company has worked around them.
The human eye is an important instrument for gathering information about the world, but it has limitations and obviously varies from person to person. It sees only over a particular range of wavelengths and has a limited ability to distinguish very similar colors. Hyperspectral imaging technologies provide a solution for overcoming these limitations, revealing data that the eye alone cannot capture. This article presents and discusses the new information that hyperspectral imaging brings to unmnanned aerial vehicles.

Each sensor application has its own subtleties that need to be addressed in order to choose the appropriate optical filters for each sensing task. This application note discusses the critical parameters for bandpass filters that are to be used for sensor applications, including considerations on in-band transmission, band edge placement, and out-of-band blocking.

Ophir-Spiricon offers three families of UV converter products designed for the indirect measurements of UV laser beam profiles. This application notes compares and contrasts each family, and covers their basic specifications and applications.
German scientists have produced a camera, using additive manufacturing with a femtosecond laser printer, capable of building free-form optics. Researchers claim that technology opens possibilities for micro- or nano-optical devices, such as endoscopes and mini-robots with autonomous vision, and paves the way for a “paradigm shift” in medical imaging that could be injected into the body through a syringe.
Researchers have improved upon a new camera technology that can image at speeds about 100 times faster than recently’s commercial cameras while also capturing more image frames.
The National Photonics Initiative (NPI), an alliance of top scientific societies uniting industry and academia to raise awareness of photonics, today unveiled a white paper and cancer technology road map that identifies the most promising existing and new technologies for increased and concerted private and public investment to achieve the goals of the National Cancer Moonshot – accelerate the early detection of cancer and save lives.
Innovation and Technology Leaders QuantumClean® and ChemTrace® will be exhibiting at SEMICON West 2016 tradeshow from July 12 through July 14, 2016 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California in Booth #2109.
An international team of scientists from Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), Rostov-on-Don, China, Germany and France have described how charge-carrying particles move in perovskite.
