How To Use LabVIEW To Automate Measurement Of High Frequency VCSEL

When measuring high frequency sources, one usually must decide whether they need to know the average power or the temporal pulse shape. Use a precision photodiode to measure average power, but a very fast photodiode must be used for pulse shape characterization.

Case Study: Electric Vehicle Manufacturing And Precision Metrology

Ford Motor Company recently announced a plan to invest $22 billion in the electrification of their mobility products through 2025.

Interfacing Options On PC For Power/Energy Detectors

Gentec-EO often fields questions about what interfacing options are available with their power and energy detectors. Interfacing here refers to the different methods by which you can communicate with the detector, whether it is to read its output, change its settings, or display the measurements in a user interface.

The Miniature Air Bearing Linear Slide With Voice Coil Linear Motor is a frictionless, wear-free precision motion system with very high dynamics, straightness, and flatness for 24/7 use.

Commitment To Diversity Underpins Competitive Advantage

Gooch & Housego, the specialist manufacturer of photonic components and systems, is committed to diversity in its recruitment initiatives, which include working with universities on postgraduate placements, advising on doctoral programs, and promoting STEM careers in schools.

XUV, Soft X-Ray, And Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) Spectroscopy

McPherson Instruments designs precision analytical tools that help scientists and researchers investigate molecular and atomic spectra from the infrared into the soft X-ray and short ultraviolet wavelength regions. 

New Xenon Jade Lenses By Schneider

The new Xenon Jade series is a set of high-end lenses developed with focus on the new sensors like the Sony’s Pregius S-Generation 4. Xenon Jade lenses are optimized for machine vision applications.

VCSEL-Illuminating Sensor Technology Goes Mainstream

Laser Components USA, Inc. provides customers with VCSEL (vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser) sensors that can act as a combination of LED and an edge-emitting laser (EEL), providing the benefits of both.

Solid State Battery Research

Instead of traditional lithium-ion batteries, which use liquid organic-based electrolytes, next-gen solid-electrolyte batteries incorporate solid electrodes and electrolytes, which are safer and more energy-dense than their liquid counterparts.
