TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014
L-3 Applied Optics Center (AOC) offers high-end optical solutions and assemblies for a wide range of applications in imaging, display, industrial, machine vision, defense, and aerospace applications.
Digital Laser Scanner/Galvano Scanner
The Digital Laser/Galvano Scanner series from Canon includes three different models with various features and application areas. Each Galvano scanner has digital servo controllers and encoders, ensuring good temperature characteristics.
CCD Camera: 1110S
SI’s new 1110S camera is a pixel power-house! It is designed to accommodate the very large area muti-port single-chip CCD sensors coming onto the market today. These 100+ megapixel CCDs require a camera capable of running the large number of output ports in a cryo cooled dewar that meets and exceeds the requirements of the most demanding scientific applications. It provides device-limited performance in a very compact configuration.
Heraeus Optical Plate – New Approach to Plano Optics Manufacture
Optical Plates made from Heraeus Spectrosil 2000 and Heraeus TSC-3 Fused Silica benefit from the unique optical, thermal, mechanical, electrical, and chemical properties that fused quartz and fused silica provides.
Cost Effective plate forming - Heraeus combines a near-net-shape material manufacturing process and efficient large area wire saw and double sided polishing with these materials to produce optical plates with unique performance benefits and other differential advantages over other bulk fused silica & fused quartz products and in some cases other materials.
StellarNet’s line of Raman Spectrometers are low cost, yet maintain high performance. Their ruggedized packaging makes them shock proof, resulting in perfectly lined optics. These spectrometers are configured specifically for Raman spectroscopy applications using 785nm lasers for use in lab, process, or field settings.
Detectors For Ionizing Radiation
With the X-series First Sensor offers detectors for nuclear radiation including X-or gamma rays but also alpha or beta particle radiation. First Sensor can adopt its radiation detector technology to each individual application.
High-Resolution, Compact InGaAs SWIR Camera: Bobcat-640
The Bobcat-640 is a high-resolution, compact, InGaAs SWIR camera ideal for waste sorting, semiconductor inspection, failure analysis, food inspection, and other specialized quality inspection and high temperature process control applications.
