Long-range IR imaging plays an important role for monitoring, tracking, and targeting within security and surveillance markets. Long-range IR cameras must be equipped with high-performance IR lenses that can effectively capture the emitted IR radiation and focus it onto a detector array.
How To Avoid Damage To Your Thermal Sensors
If thermal sensors are used correctly from the get-go, they can be used over many years without any need for repair. This article briefly summarized the four most common causes that significantly influence the measurement accuracy of thermal sensors, as well as corresponding preventive measures.
Using 1064 nm Dispersive Raman Systems In Biofuel And Plant Research
In the past, raman spectroscopy was not useful for plant-based samples due to their high levels of photosynthetic pigments as the fluorescent backgrounds can overwhelm Raman signals in all visible wavelengths. This issue is resolved by BaySpec’s line of 1064 nm excitation dispersive Raman systems.
Using Shattered Silicon As Resonant Probe Tips
Shattered silicon wafers can produce shards of silicon that terminate in sharp tips suitable for AFM use.
The simplicity and low cost of this method makes it a viable alternative to using etched tungsten tips. The SPM Etch Kit can be used to attach shard of silicon to the tuning fork to produce a tuning fork tip. This application note assumes that the SPM etch kit is assembled and ready for use.
Why Computer-Generated Holograms (CGH) Matter In Asphere Metrology
Aspheres and other complex optical surface shapes have become common to many optical systems as they offer wider design flexibility, lighter weight, smaller volume, and optimized optical performance. CGHs are a natural extension of Fizeau interferometry, the industry standard for optics metrology, and offer significant benefits for metrology of aspheres.
Prior Scientific's NanoScan-SP range of Piezo driven stages are compatible with the Prior motorized stage as well as many common microscopes when using appropriate adapter plates. Applications for this series include live cell imaging, surface analysis, water inspection, and more.
