TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014
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.
CCD Camera: 1110S
SI’s new 1110S camera is a pixel power-house! It is designed to accommodate the very large area muti-port single-chip CCD sensors coming onto the market today. These 100+ megapixel CCDs require a camera capable of running the large number of output ports in a cryo cooled dewar that meets and exceeds the requirements of the most demanding scientific applications. It provides device-limited performance in a very compact configuration.
Industrial Grade Mid-IR Laser Source: Cobolt Odin™
This compact and tunable mid-IR laser is well suited for applications involving the industrial and scientific markets. They’re ideal for analytical instrumentation used in environmental monitoring, for the control and limitation of pollution emissions, and for other applications involving molecular spectroscopy.
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.
World’s Smallest, Most Rugged EMCCD Camera: Hawk EM247
Raptor Photonics’ Hawk EM247 EMCCD camera is only 43mm x 43 mm x 57mm and weighs less than 150g. Its size and weight makes for easy integration into UAVs, handheld systems, and robotic systems, and its ultra-low power (less than 5W) makes it well suited for OEM integration into electro-optic systems.
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
Compact 320 x 240 Pixel Thermal Camera
DRS Technologies’ Tamarisk®320 is a less than 2 cubic inch camera that weighs just over an ounce and provides 320 x 240 pixel resolution. It’s ideal for applications in security and surveillance, unmanned sensors, UAVs, man-portable imaging devices, robotic ground vehicles, and medical imaging.
