    STIL, inventor of chromatic confocal imaging and world leader in the domain of chromatic confocal distance sensors, has launched its newest product: CCS Optical Comparator - STEP

  2. Laser Components Announces CW Blue Laser Diodes

    With a wide range of applications like measurement technology, sensor technology, medical technology and military applications, CW laser diodes have proved to be extremely useful.

  3. A New Component Toolbox For 2 Micron Fiber Lasers

    Gooch & Housego offers a full suite of passive and active components to enable high power, all-fiber lasers at 2 µm. These instruments were developed over the three years of the ISLA project, and are comprised of G&H core competencies in design and manufacturing of fused fiber components and acousto-optic devices.  

  4. Slowing Atoms To Accelerate Technology

    Gooch & Housego is leading a project that will look to develop a robust tabletop system as the first step in commercializing cold atom systems. The “FreezeRay” program will create cooled atoms to be used for highly accurate atomic clocks for inertial navigation, finance and power synchronization.

  5. ISLA (Integrated Disruptive Components For 2 Micron Fibre Lasers) Project Concludes

    Gooch & Housego recently announced the ISLA project that started in October 2011. This project’s aim was to push the boundaries of current laser material processing technology by creating a complete set of “building-block” components for 2 µm fiber lasers.

  6. Conferences On Sensing For Agriculture And Robotic Vision Among Expanded Topics At SPIE Defense And Commercial Sensing

    Practical, new sensing technologies enabling wide-ranging applications such as increasing crop productivity, improving neurosurgery, and delivering groceries by drone will be among topics at SPIE Defense and Commercial Sensing in Baltimore 17-21 April 2016.

  7. Detecting HIV Diagnostic Antibodies With DNA Nanomachines

    New research may revolutionize the slow, cumbersome and expensive process of detecting the antibodies that can help with the diagnosis of infectious and auto-immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and HIV.

  8. Microsemi Announces Availability Of LX2410A IDEAL Solar Bypass Device With Patented CoolRUN Technology

    Microsemi Corporation (Nasdaq: MSCC), a leading provider of semiconductor solutions differentiated by power, security, reliability and performance, today announced the availability of the LX2410A IDEAL™ solar bypass device with Microsemi's patented CoolRUN™ technology, designed to provide a bypass path in photovoltaic (PV) module applications.

  9. Photometrics Launches Intelligent Scientific CMOS Camera

    Photometrics has released its new sCMOS camera, the Photometrics Prime. Prime is the first 4.2 Megapixel scientific CMOS camera available for life science research that actively defeats the negative impact of Poisson noise in low light images. The camera packs a formidable FPGA-based Embedded Signal Processing engine, ESP, that enables powerful signal restoration and feature detection for localization based Super Resolution Microscopy. 

  10. 200-Terawatt Laser Brings New Extremes In Heat, Pressure To X-Ray Experiments

    A newly upgraded high-power laser at the Department of Energy’s SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory will blaze new trails across many fields of science by recreating the universe’s most extreme conditions, such as those at the heart of stars and planets, in a lab.
