1. World’s First True HD Thermal Camera: Viento HD Lab

    Sierra-Olympic is proud to present the new Viento HD Lab camera, the first longwave infrared (LWIR) camera designed with true high-definition imaging at 1900 x 1200 pixel resolution. This fully functional camera system is based on a unique 1920 x 1200 x 12 µm uncooled sensor, making the imager ideal for users who require the maximum number of pixels available in a thermal, commercially-supported imaging system.

  2. Outcomes Of Mid-Air Collisions Between Drops And Solid Particles

    Since the beginning of the industrial revolution, scientists and engineers around the world are conducting experiments with goal to further understand and provide valuable data for different industrial processes. One such experiment is the study of drop-particle collisions, which involves examining the outcome of the impact of a particle on to a drop of liquid in mid-air. In applications such as tablet coating in the pharmaceutical industry or the refining of heavy crude oil in fluid catalytic cracking, the information gleaned from this experiment is vital.

  3. The Heat Is On: Examining Two-Phase Flow And Heat Transfer With High-Speed Cameras

    There is hardly a home or workplace in America without some type of air conditioning or refrigeration unit. We rely heavily on these industrial technologies that operate through a heat exchanger which transfers heat between one or more fluids, essentially increasing heating and cooling efficiency and flow. A group of students Pennsylvania State University are in the process of studying two-phase flow and heat transfer phenomena in an effort to further advance these processes and their technologies.

  4. Ion Beam Sputtering (IBS) Coating Datasheet

    The ion beam sputtering (IBS) coating process where the energy input parameters, layer growth rate, level of oxidation, and other process parameters can be very precisely set with a high reproducibility. This process produces a “cold coating” applied at low temperatures, making it possible to coat temperature-sensitive materials such as laser crystals. The IBS process is also able to manufacture extremely complex layer structures with more than 100 layers for the highest degree of reflection.

  5. AR Coatings Datasheet

    Anti-reflex (AR) coatings are designed to reduce the power loss, or reflections, in laser systems caused by backscatter. These components are optimized for high power lasers within the 193 nm to 5000 nm wavelength range. Since the bandwidth and effectiveness of these coatings are influenced by various designs and materials, each coating can be created in specification to the desired application.

  6. Coated Laser Optics

    LASER COMPONENTS is experienced in designing and manufacturing dielectric coatings for a wide range of optics applications, including those using windows, lenses, the back side of dichroic mirrors, or beam splitters. The company currently uses E-beam technology (physical vapor deposition (PVD)), ion-assisted deposition (IAD), and ion beam sputtering (IBS) coating processes to create their optics components.

  7. Pulsed Laser Diodes At 1550 nm: HI-FAC-Series Datasheet

    The HI-FAC-Series pulsed laser diodes (PLDs) are designed to operate at the 1550 nm wavelength with fast axis collimation 15/10/5 mrad options. These highly reliable PLDs feature up to 16 W of peak power, a hermetic package, and an extremely robust design. They are ideal for use in within military laser rangefinder and friend/foe identification applications.

  8. Pulsed Laser Diodes At 1550 nm: 1550-Series Datasheet

    The 1550-Series pulsed laser diodes (PLDs) are designed to operate at the 1550 nm wavelength at up to 50 W of power. These “eye-safe” PLDs are manufactured with a base material of InP and additional InGaAsP layers that ensure high reliability, excellent beam characteristics, and outstanding temperature stability. They are ideal for use in within military laser rangefinder and friend/foe identification applications.

  9. Pulsed Laser Diodes At 1550 nm

    LASER COMPONENTS designs and produces pulsed laser diodes (PLDs) at 1550 nm with high power levels up to 50 W. This wavelength cannot be detected by common night-vision goggles, making the PLDs ideal for multi-junction pulsed laser diodes within military laser rangefinder and friend/foe identification applications.

  10. Hyperspectral Imaging Camera: OCI™-F-SWIR Datasheet

    BaySpec’s OCI™-F-SWIR is a miniaturized, “true push broom” hyperspectral camera with coverage of the full SWIR wavelength range in many spectroscopy applications, including remote sensing, biomedical diagnostics, pharmaceuticals, and counterfeit detection. This camera is characterized by fast data rates up to 50 fps, real-time sample previews, extreme compact and light-weight packaging, no moving parts, and simple integration onto different platforms.
