TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014
Hamamatsu’s micro PMT is an ultracompact photodetector about the size of a fingertip, with the same characteristics as a conventional photomultiplier tube (PMT). Its small size, robust structure, high sensitivity, low noise, and fast time response make the micro PMT a suitable detector for high-performance portable devices and instruments. In addition, micro PMTs are easily mass produced and customized.
OWL (Outrageously Wide Lambda) Polarizers
Meadowlark Optics’ OWL polarizers are extremely broadband (300-2700nm) and have a wide acceptance angle (+ 40o). They’ve been designed to replace the large and costly pieces of calcite that were used in the past for the 300-2700nm wavelength range.
Optical Thickness Gauge: 157 Series
The Model 157 optical thickness gauge uses proven optical interferometer technology to measure the absolute thickness of specialty plastic films, medical membranes, and ophthalmic products. High accuracy and exceptional repeatability results in the most reliable measurement available.
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.
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.
Multispectral Photodiode Developer Kit
This developer kit is a tool used for the development and prototyping of multispectral sensors using PIXELTEQ’s wavelength-selective photodiode arrays. Users can enable channel-specific settings, device configurations, sampling modes, data displays, and logging options – all which contribute to the development of multi-wavelength sensors in a very small footprint.
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.
