TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT SPIE PHOTONICS WEST 2016

Linear Variable VIS NIR Bandpass Filters For Hyperspectral Imaging
Linear Variable VIS NIR Bandpass Filters For Hyperspectral Imaging

Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is used for many applications including satellite imaging and air reconnaissance. HSI is usually executed with bulky hyperspectral-imaging cameras that are sensitive to misalignment, very expensive, and use prisms or gratings as dispersive elements. An alternative method of HSI is the combination of linear variable bandpass filters (LVBPFs) with silicon detectors. This allows for very compact, robust, and affordable HSI detectors that offer several advantages over conventional approaches.

  • NanoScan 2s Scanning Slit Beam Profiler
    NanoScan 2s Scanning Slit Beam Profiler

    The NanoScan™ 2s from Ophir Photonics is a scanning slit beam profiler designed to deliver highly accurate dimensional measurements of laser beam spatial irradiance profiles in accordance with the ISO standard 11146. With the options of a silicon, germanium, or pyroelectric detector, this instrument is able to profile lasers of any wavelength from UV to far infrared, out to 100 µm and beyond. This profiler provides instantaneous feedback of beam parameters for CW and kHz pulsed lasers, with measurement update rates to 20 Hz.

  • High-Speed InGaAs 0.9-1.7 µm PIN Diode
    High-Speed InGaAs 0.9-1.7 µm PIN Diode

    Marktech Optoelectronics offers a new series of InGaAs PIN photo diodes designed to feature low noise, high sensitivity, and high-speed response. Typical applications for these near infrared detectors include telecommunications and other high speed applications that use optical communication devices such as receivers, sensors, and high speed fiber modules.

  • Solid-State Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) For Near-Ultraviolet or Red, Green & Blue Light Detection
    Solid-State Silicon Photomultipliers (SiPM) For Near-Ultraviolet or Red, Green & Blue Light Detection

    First Sensor offers a new series of innovative solid-state silicon photomultipliers (SiPMs) that are designed to detect ultra-low light levels down to single photons. These detectors are optimized for near-ultraviolet (Series SiPM-NUV) or red, green, and blue (Series SiPM-RGB) light detection with peak sensitivities at 420 nm or 550 nm. Key features include a low operating voltage, high gain and low noise, and immunity to magnet fields.

  • sCMOS Cameras: pco.edge Family
    sCMOS Cameras: pco.edge Family

    The pco.edge family is comprised of a variety of sCMOS cameras with variations in resolution, frame rates, readout noise, dynamic range, and overall performance.

  • Optical Filters for Endoscopy and Medical Imaging
    Optical Filters for Endoscopy and Medical Imaging

    Iridian Spectral offers edge, notch, and band pass optical filters covering the 300nm (UV) to 10µm (LWIR) wavelength range for biomedical instrumentation, and medical devices for endoscopy and laparoscopy.

  • Digital Encoder Galvano Scanner: GM-1000 Series
    Digital Encoder Galvano Scanner: GM-1000 Series

    The GM-1000 series of digital encoder galvano scanners is comprised of four different models with variations in beam diameter, scan angles, small step response, and resolution. Each model has a compact physical profile, super low thermal drift, and extreme high resolution, precision, and accuracy.

  • Transparent Sample Characterization

    Edmund Optics recently developed their own in-house solution to verify optical coatings, and the result was the DIC microscope. At Photonics West 2015, Stefaan Vandendriessche met with us to give us the story on how the microscope came to be, and what it can do. This interesting perspective gives their “What Can We Make For You” slogan some serious legs.

  • Trends In Microelectronics and Interactive Electro-Optic Devices
    Trends In Microelectronics and Interactive Electro-Optic Devices

    Lisa Tsufura with Abrisa Technologies spent some time with Photonics Online on the last day of the show to catch us up to speed on some trends her company has observed in regards to microelectronics and interactive electro-optic devices, and the role Abrisa can play in said marketplaces.

  • UVC LEDs for Analytical And Life Sciences Instrumentation

    On day three of the Photonics West exhibition, Hari Venugopalan introduced us to his company’s Optan UVC LEDs. Watch the video to learn how their industry leading light output, superior light output maintenance, and excellent spectral quality can improve your analytical instrumentation used in water and wastewater monitoring, ozone monitoring, HPLC detectors, protein research, and fluorescence imaging.

  • A New Paradigm In FT-IR Spectroscopy
    A New Paradigm In FT-IR Spectroscopy

    Si-Ware Systems drew a lot of positive attention at Photonics West 2015 with their Prism award winning MEMS spectral sensors. Bassam Saadany and Mostafa Medhat met with Photonics Online on the last day of the show so we could get a glimpse of the sensors in person and see them in action. If you’re looking to replace your standard bench top FT-IR spectrometer with something much smaller and much less expensive, then this video is most certainly for you.

  • Optimize Your Laser Processes
    Optimize Your Laser Processes

    On the third and final day of the Photonics West 2015 exhibition, John McCauley with Ophir Photonics gave us a quick tutorial on their laser performance measurement equipment   and how it can be used to help OEMs and system integrators optimize their laser processes while ensuring quality and consistency over time.
