TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2015
The 100K-W laser power meter measures very high power NIR, Nd:YAG, and fiber lasers used in thermal ablation, heavy-section welding, metal forming, and other industrial materials processing applications. It’s also well-equipped to handle military directed-energy applications.
Nanopositioner Focusing Elements: Nano-F Series
The Nano-F Series by Mad City Labs are nanopositioner focusing elements for applications involving confocal imaging, auto focusing, STORM imaging, and PALM imaging. They offer 100 or 200 microns of travel and are operable as standalone focusing elements or with other Mad City Labs’ nanopositioning stages.
World Class Optical Thin Films
DELTA has been providing world class optical thin films for applications involving optical coherence tomography (OCT), image transferring systems, Point of Care (PoC) instruments, flow cytometry, raman spectroscopy, high performance monochromators, biomedical laser systems, and more.
VIS-SWIR Camera for High-Sensitivity Imaging: Ninox 640
The Ninox 640 is a digital VIS-SWIR camera that utilizes a 640 x 512 InGaAs sensor for thermography, astronomy, hyperspectral imaging, telecommunications, solar cell inspection, semiconductor inspection, and microscopy applications.
APEX®: Glass for Photonic and Optoelectronic Packages
3D Glass Solutions provides systems integration solutions for a wide array of Optoelectronic and Opto-RF products, ranging from mechanical spacers, fiber optic alignment trenches, to completely integrated optoelectronic packages.
Multi-Wavelength Laser Modules and Beam Combiners
The LASOS® System Series is comprised of multi-wavelength laser modules and beam combiners with different designs for a variety of solutions. They’re available with free beam or fiber output options and in benchtop form and installable sub-systems. To date, two different models in the series are available.
Narrow Bandpass Filters for Gesture Recognition Systems
Optics Balzers’ NIR narrow bandpass filters are ideal for integration into gesture recognition systems, in 3D imaging applications, and in multipurpose cameras for the automotive market. They’ve specifically been developed for use in TOF cameras where a wide field of incidence angle and high performance blocking are necessary. For more information, download the datasheet.
PHOTONICS WEST VIDEOS
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
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
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
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.
