10.11.21 -- Imaging Venus With SWIR | Defining Manufacturing Excellence

Industry Insights
Revealing Their True Colors

Dr. Daniel Whisler, a member of the Impact Group at California State Long Beach, and his team devised a new method to measure the dynamic response of composites in a new, colorful way. By utilizing high-speed cameras, the traditional measurement process gets an interesting spin. 

An Enabling Technology For Optimized Automated Manufacturing

Cambridge Technology has been manufacturing ultra-lightweight coated beryllium mirrors for over 50 years. These mirrors, which are integrated into laser beam steering assemblies, are used in various applications from PCB drilling to laser eye surgery.

Imaging Venus With A Scientific SWIR Camera

German researcher Dr. Sebastian Voltmer has been looking at the inner planet Venus as a ring next to the sun and how the crescent is getting bigger. According to Dr. Voltmer, the cooled Ninox 640 II SWIR camera provides an improved signal-to-noise ratio.

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. The Xenon Jade lenses are optimized for use in machine vision applications.

Detecting Disguises At Border And Immigration Security Checkpoints Using Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR) Cameras

As the U.S. continues to increase its security at border crossings, airports, and other points of entry, biometrics will play an important role. SWIR cameras can help identify disguises as the border and therefore supplement security efforts.

Stability Of Silicon Photodiodes For Laser Emission Measurements

This white paper’s objective is to examine the suitability of silicon photodiodes as the transducer, and to discuss the calibration accuracy, reproducibility, and stability that are likely to be achieved from a commercial company.

DiaMonTech Develops Noninvasive Blood Glucose Monitor That Uses M-IR Lasers

More than 400 million people worldwide suffer from diabetes. For them, the ability to measure blood glucose levels noninvasively (without piercing the skin) would be an enormous relief. Thanks to a patented development by DiaMonTech AG, this dream could soon come true for many people.
