Spectroscopy Helps Tuning Down Air Pollution
By Laser Components USA, Inc.

It took less than a century for cars to become an indispensable part of modern life. Even though vehicles have their advantages, vehicular air pollution affects air quality in both metropolitan and small-town areas all around the world. This article discusses the efforts to lower air pollution and how spectroscopy helps in these processes.

Handheld Chemical Analysis Enhances Many Industry Uses
Article | By: Brad Sohnlein, BaySpec Inc.

Handheld full-solution spectrometers can address mobile analysis needs in many industry applications better than other technologies currently more widely used.

Cooled vs. Uncooled Thermal Imaging
Application Note | FLIR Systems, Inc - Research & Science

This application note describes the difference between cooled and uncooled thermal imaging cameras and when to use them in applications such as industrial R&D, academics and research, and defense and aerospace.

What Is A UV Filter?
Article | Abrisa Technologies

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.

Can Your Laser Micro Drilling System Do All This?
Article | Canon USA, Inc. Optoelectronic Components

The recent introduction of a 5-axis laser micro drill system expands the limits of micrometer-range drilling. Canon’s unique technology creates flexible hole shapes and wider angles at significantly higher processing speeds. Stent production, injector hole drilling, and micromachining will benefit.
