TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014
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.
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.
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.
Custom Fiber Collimators
Micro Laser Systems offers custom fiber collimators for applications involving sensors, microscopy, detectors, and spectrometers. Their standard fiber collimators are ideal for the prototyping and research stage of your project, but once you’ve determined your specific parameters, they can make the required changes that you need for your solution.
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
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
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.
