Optical Monitoring System Improves Thin-Film Coating Accuracy

In the past, a thin-film design software was used to help develop the coating, but the real challenge was in actually replicating the design thickness and the material indexes inside the coating chamber without any errors. 

Advanced IR Zoom Lenses For Next-Generation Thermal Imaging Applications

This paper reviews advances in the development of infrared zoom lenses that meet challenging SWaP requirements while enabling high-resolution vision and identification in harsh environmental conditions and constrained platforms such as airborne and portable systems. 

How To Remove Background Noise For Accurate Laser Beam Profiling And Power Measurement

Laser beam measurement noise can affect both beam diameter and power measurements. In most cases, these erroneous readings are larger than they are supposed to be. This article outlines how to minimize background noise and improve reading accuracy. 

Speed Up Testing And Improve Quality Of Electronics PCBA And Integrated Circuit Design And Testing With The Use Of Infrared Technology

As electronic circuit boards and components get smaller and more powerful, inherent heating becomes a concern. Infrared camera technology is helping save electronic design companies money through improved test times and better product design.

Introducing Premium Energy Sensors (Even For UV)

When the pulse energy density becomes too high even for absorbers with pyroelectric crystals, diffusers are often used to spread the beam and reduce the energy density on the absorber. However, they cannot escape the challenges the UV radiation introduces.

Imaging PV Cells

Researchers and manufacturers of concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) cells have recently achieved record solar cell conversion efficiencies of 41 percent by overlaying three semiconductor layers.
