Understanding How A BSI Sensor Has Advanced High-Speed Imaging

With speeds of over 1 million frames per second, high-speed imaging is an invaluable research tool capable of capturing the most fleeting events in scientific and engineering applications. Yet achieving this speed comes with strings attached. 

  • Utilizing Flow Cytometry Filters

    Used across a variety of biological disciplines, fluorescence-based flow cytometers rapidly and accurately quantify cells and cellular components. As one of the most important components of these systems, flow cytometry filters must be specifically designed to maximize signal-to-noise ratios while minimizing crosstalk between fluorophores.

  • The Complete Guidebook On Thermal Screening For Elevated Skin Temperature

    Infrared thermography, especially with the use of an infrared camera, can detect elevated skin temperatures, which may indicate the presence of a fever. This method offers a vital tool in screening travelers, hospital patients and visitors, warehouse workers, customers, and more.

  • 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.

  • Optical Components For SWIR Imaging

    This application note provides information on the benefits of SWIR imaging in harsh or low-light level conditions, and PG&O's capabilities in manufacturing optical components for SWIR imaging.

mini positioner UHV-Compatible Miniature Piezo Hexapod: P-911KNMV

The P-911KNMV from PI features a space-saving parallel-kinematic design, producing a low overall height of less than 90 mm and a diameter of only 100 mm. The NEXLINE® piezo stepping motor drives and integrated incremental sensors ensure a position resolution down to 0.1 µm in the linear axes.

  • Guardian™ Industrial Enclosure

    ZYGO’s Guardian™ Industrial Enclosure is designed to isolate the metrology core from the surrounding environment, even under the more challenging environmental conditions.

  • Thermal Imaging Camera With SLS Detector: FLIR A6750 LWIR

    FLIR offers the A6750 LWIR thermal imaging camera with a cooled SLS detector designed for high speed image acquisition up to 4.1 kHz with windowing. It captures all pixels simultaneously in under 190 μs for room temperature scenes, which is particularly important when monitoring fast moving objects where an uncooled thermal imaging camera would suffer from image blur.

  • Phantom VEO Camera: 1310

    Vision Research's Phantom VEO 1310 is the highest speed and most light sensitive VEO available. Available in both L (light) and S (full) body styles, these cameras are able to meet the needs of many applications.

  • MVpulse: An Eye on Safety - Laser Protection Class 2 Eye Safety And High Energy Output In One Laser

    FLEXPOINT MVpulse laser module combines two criteria of machine vision: Bright light with output powers up to 100 mW and class 2 eye safety. High output and high contrast images allow for detailed processing. Bright light only needs to be available when the camera takes an image. The electronics match acquisition frequency and illumination pulses to each other, enable high output powers without the use of complex protective measures.
