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.
HOYA’s color filter glass products are ideal for applications involving medical devices, CCDs, imaging, telecommunications, calibration, electronic instrumentation, night vision, CRT/LCD/FED displays, and machine vision.
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.
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.
HOYA’s color filter glass products include sharp cut/long pass, light-balancing, color-compensating, neutral density, heat-absorbing, multi-band calibration, and UV Absorbing/VIS blocking filters for the UV through NIR regions. Featured is the new UL365S UV Band-Pass Filter that offers UV transmitting/VIS absorbing performance with high UV transmittance, while providing the highest resistance to any effects caused by UV solarization and/or exposure to high humidity conditions.
The Tamarisk®320 Precision Series of micro thermal imagers for radiometric detection and imaging offer 320 x 240 pixel resolution and are ideal for applications involving test and measurement, fire detection, equipment monitoring, perimeter security, gas leak detection, process monitoring and automation, building inspections, and medical diagnostics/screening.
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.
At 2016’s Photonics West, Ray Fontayne provided us with a general overview of Opto Diode and the markets they serve.
Marco Snikkers wrapped up our Photonics West 2016 coverage by introducing us to a pixel sensor that acts as an 8-channel spectrometer for biomedical, fluorescence marking, and colorimeter applications, as well as a multi-spectral camera that can monitor specific wavelengths in real-time.
At Zygo' booth this year, Tyler Steele introduced us to the Verifire™ series of interferometers for the measurement of plano, spherical and aspherical surfaces and material characteristics. He then turned it over to Eric Felkel who showed us the Nomad™, a portable optical profiler for measuring topography and roughness on optical surfaces.
Greg Staples with BaySpec introduced us to his company’s latest portable benchtop Raman spectroscopy solution at Photonics West 2016.
At 2016’s Photonics West exhibition, Dan Bukaty talked to us about Precision Glass & Optics’ (PG&O) view on partnering with their customers.
FLIR is proud to introduce the new FLIR X6900sc as the world’s fastest 640 x 512 resolution thermal camera for high speed science applications. The new thermal imager is designed to record 1000 fps at full resolution onto the camera RAM for up to 26 seconds. Stop by FLIR booth #2632 for an opportunity to see this high speed camera in action.
