Understanding Virus Mechanisms — One Particle At A Time

Single-molecule microscopy techniques facilitate direct study of molecular mechanisms, enabling leaps in understanding surrounding how viruses assemble, disassemble, and interact with their hosts.

Industry Insights
Using Beam Splitters For Teleprompters

A teleprompter system allows an individual to look directly at the camera, rather than looking at notes or a script when addressing an audience. Abrisa Technologies provides non-distortion, high-definition compatible optical grade beam splitter mirrors for these teleprompter applications.

The Power From The Mirror

High-power lasers can only be as strong as their optical components allow. Thus, the further development of laser technology depends crucially on the development of complex coating systems with a high damage threshold.

Can Your Laser Micro Drilling System Do All This?

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.

Chemiluminescence Imaging Of Plants Using A Deep Cooled CCD

Chemiluminescence imaging combines chemiluminescence detection with the ability to locate and quantify the light emission. It requires high sensitivity combined with long exposure times to detect the few photons emitted by the chemical reaction of interest with the living organisms.

Getting The Most From Your IR Camera

Understanding IR camera calibration and corrections helps ensure accurate temperature measurements and thermographic mapping. This article is part three of a handbook by FLIR that discusses how to get the most out of using your IR camera.

Are Large Image Sensors A Perfect Fit For Large Field Of View Microscope Applications?

Microscope manufacturers have increased their field of vision on the cameras connected to their microscopes to offer more information to their users. This paper delves into the relationship between resolution, magnification, spectral range, and pixel size of image sensors.

Hybrid Gain Flattening Filters In Optical Fiber Amplifiers

Hybrid GFFs save space, simplify system layouts, cost less than a two-filter setup, and offer unparalleled reliability. Meet the new standard in optical fiber amplifier components.

Photodiode Characteristics And Applications

Silicon photodiodes operate by absorption of photons or charged particles and generate a flow of current in an external circuit, proportional to the incident power. They are used in diverse applications including spectroscopy, beam alignment, optical communications, and medical imaging.
