  7. Camera Requirements For 3D Metrology

    As the objects to inspect/measure in high-tech manufacturing become smaller, higher-resolution cameras with better spatial resolution can improve accuracy and precision. This does require a high-quality machine vision camera design, however, or what is now called a metrology camera. 3D measurements in particular pose increasing demands on camera performance and reliability. This article discusses critical parameters, depending on the specific measurement.

  8. Single Photon Counting Modules (SPCM) for Molecular Imaging

    SPCM-AQRH is a self-contained module that detects single photons of light over the 400 nm to 1060 nm wavelength range - a range and sensitivity that often outperforms a photomultiplier tube. The SPCM-AQRH uses a unique silicon avalanche photodiode (SLiK®) with a circular active area that achieves a peak photon detection efficiency of more than 65 % at 650 nm over a 180 μm diameter. The photodiode is both thermoelectrically-cooled and temperature-controlled, ensuring stabilized performance despite ambient temperature changes.

  9. Single Photon Counting Modules (SPCM) Datasheet

    Excelitas Technologies’ newly improved SPCM-AQRH Single Photon Counting Module detects single photons over the wavelength range of 400 nm to 1060 nm with performance parameters superior to other solid state or vacuum-tube based photon counters.

  10. High-Speed Digital Camera Enables Study Of Gas And Oil Flow In Pipelines

    For gas and oil companies, pipes are extremely important. Pipelines are the primary method of transportation for many of their products, providing movement from the field to processing and finally to the customers. This case study provides details on how the FASTCAM SA3 high-speed camera from Photron enabled researchers at the University of Tulsa to better understand how different combinations of fluids, changing temperatures, and varying elevations all affect fluid flow.
