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.
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
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.
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.
OEM Board Camera for Laboratory Applications
The VCSBC6085 board level camera has been designed to detect delicate structures in x-ray images. Its integrated CCD sensor provides 1280 x 1024 resolution and its 16 bit color depth allows the camera to distinguish between 65,536 shades of gray.
