TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014
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.
sCMOS Camera: pco.edge 4.2
pco’s line of sCMOS cameras have been designed to provide low noise, fast frame rates, a wide dynamic range, high quantum efficiency, high resolution, and a large field of view - all in one image. They’re ideal for a wide variety scientific applications.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
