A new spectroscopic method now makes it possible to measure and visualise the energetic landscape inside solar cells based on organic materials. It was developed by a research team led by Prof. Dr Yana Vaynzof, a physicist at Heidelberg University.
Scientists from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) in a collaboration with the University of Groningen (UG) in the Netherlands, have developed a method to analyse which pairs of materials in next-generation perovskite solar cells will harvest the most energy.
This video provides an overview of ZYGO Corporation’s electro-optics design and manufacturing capabilities.
ZYGO is focused on bringing solutions centered around precision optical components, extreme precision optical components, and optical assembly services. With abilities to work on a build-to-print basis or build a design from scratch through to volume production, ZYGO offers in-process quality assurance to make sure end product meets or exceeds the customer's specifications.
ZYGO's surface measurement technology is further enhanced with vibration-tolerant SureScan™ technology, which enables users to locate the ZeGage system anywhere in your manufacturing facility without the need for bulky and expensive vibration isolation systems.
SmartSetup™ technology helps users get measurement data from their ZYGO optical profiler quickly by automating set up and configuration tasks.
One of the greatest advantages of thermal imaging cameras in military research and range applications is their ability to image and record thermal data without the need to touch the target under testing. This eBook offers a comprehensive understanding of research and science thermography with topics including how IR cameras work, finding resolution in a distant image, and challenges of infrared radiance measurement.

Author Ken Barat brings decades of experience and perspective to best practices in the use and handling of lasers and fiber optics. From personal concerns like protective eyewear and ergonomic considerations in lab layout, to safety in fabrication environments and the application of microlearning to worker well-being, this free collection of content will help readers understand how to operate — and work in proximity to — these technologies safely and effectively.
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.
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."
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.
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.
Schneider Optics announces that Mr. Stuart Singer is rejoining Schneider Optics, Inc. (SOI) based in Hauppauge, New York as CEO starting December 16, 2019.
For the first time, researchers have used a chip-based sensor with an integrated laser to detect very low levels of a cancer protein biomarker in a urine sample. The new technology is more sensitive than other designs and could lead to non-invasive and inexpensive ways to detect molecules that indicate the presence or progression of a disease.
TowerJazz, the global specialty foundry leader, today announced that it has been qualified by Inphi Corporation for production of Silicon Photonics Integrated Circuits for data center interconnects based on TowerJazz’s open foundry Silicon Photonics platform.
