TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014
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.
Zygo offers integrated system design, prototyping, and volume assembly in product development phases like engineering and product development, electro-optical assembly, opto-mechanical assembly, and turnkey system manufacturing. This page provides an overview of Zygo’s Electro-Optics group and their role in designing and manufacturing electro-optical assemblies for markets involving the life sciences, military and defense, semiconductors, and in industrial applications.
Designing For Moldability: Undercuts And Through-Holes Every process has its guidelines and limitations, injection molding is no exception. With this whitepaper from Protomold, designers can address the challenges of parts that have indentations, through-holes, and other features that don’t point straight up or down.
Digital Laser Scanner/Galvano Scanner
The Digital Laser/Galvano Scanner series from Canon USA’s Encoder Optoelectronic Components division includes three different models with various features and application areas in the medical and industrial fields. Each Galvano scanner has digital servo controllers and encoders, ensuring good temperature characteristics.
High Precision Micromolding For Military And Aerospace Applications The Military and Aerospace industries require very precise parts because of the highly dangerous environment within which these components work
These Raman filters offer a low loss and flat transmittance rate, high environmental stability, steep pass-block transition, OD5 to OD6 blocking, and long-term shift-free spectral performance. Wide flexibility in filter size is available, making them ideal for compact optical setups.
World’s First 1500 fps Infrared Camera: FAST-IR 1500
The FAST-IR 1500 is a high performance infrared camera that features 1500 fps full frame resolution, high sensitivity for targets that are difficult to detect, self-adjustment to fast temperature changes, and enhanced identification capability through the use of spectral characteristics.
