TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014
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.
Optical Solutions and Assemblies
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Custom Coatings OptoSigma specializes in custom optical coatings from the ultra-violet to the near infrared, everyday providing a variety of custom coatings from simple modifications of the catalog specifications to entirely specialized designs
