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.

AFM With Motorized XYZ And Camera

An atomic force microscope (AFM) can be built using Mad City Labs products along with other off-the-shelf components. This application note describes the construction of a fully automated AFM with the addition of a camera with a coaxial illuminator to view the tip approach.

Optical Filters For Raman Analysis: Finding The Needle In The Haystack

Most Raman microscopy applications seek to maximize access to the Raman fingerprint of the molecule of interest, requiring filters that provide “more signal with less background.” This article discusses optical filters for Raman analysis, addressing filters for both bench-top and portable Raman applications.

What Is A UV Filter?

A UV-blocking filter, or ultraviolet optical filter, prevents ultraviolet light transmission. UV filters are commonly used in photography to reduce the level of ultraviolet light that strikes the recording medium.

Durable, Front-Surface Hard Optical Coatings For Replacing Laminated Soft Coatings

Alluxa’s proprietary high-speed plasma deposition technology for the first time delivers the optical performance and durability of hard-coated thin film optical filters at laminated soft coating pricing.

Phantom Cameras Shine In Recent Ballistics And Material Tests For Aerospace Components

This case study explores how the Phantom Ultra high-speed and VEO high-speed cameras were used to record the testing processes for both components. These analytic tools provided crucial information on the design and performance of aerospace devices.

UVC LED Disinfection: How UVC Radiation Makes The Coronavirus Harmless

UVC is high-energy, short-wave radiation with a wavelength range between 100 and 300 nm. It is absorbed by RNA strands of the corona pathogen SARS-CoV-2 and causes their nucleotide sequences to clump together, preventing the cells from reproducing or killing them.
