  • FLIR Cameras Reveal Thermal Characteristics of Microelectronic Devices

    The performance of microelectronic devices will depend on a better understanding of the thermophysical properties of the various materials used in the microelectronics. At the University of Texas at Arlington, the team of Dr. Ankur Jain, who heads the Microscale Thermophysics Laboratory, studies a wide range of topics related to microscale thermal transport. The laboratory makes use of diverse modern equipment and instruments, including thermal imaging cameras from FLIR Systems.  

  • There's No Crying In Medical Manufacturing!

    Much like the game of baseball, medical manufacturing can be complex, demanding and ever changing. And it's hard. But "the hard... is what makes it great."

  • Laser Diffuser Technology Propels Light-Based Therapies Forward

    Advanced diffusers can meet the needs of light-based therapies by combining extremely homogenous light output at high powers with the ability to transmit visible, infrared, and ultraviolet wavelengths with high efficiency. 

  • Are Large Image Sensors A Perfect Fit For Large Field Of View Microscope Applications?

    Microscope manufacturers have increased their field of vision on the cameras connected to their microscopes to offer more information to their users. This, however, resulted in larger image circles to be covered by cameras with their image sensors, and raised the question: are larger image sensors a perfect fit for large field-of-view (FOV) microscope applications. This white paper explores the answer to this question and delves into the relationship between resolution, magnification, spectral range, and pixel size of image sensors.
