Lasers Easily Make Tough Measurements In Automobile And Aircraft Manufacturing
Application Note | Laser Components USA, Inc.

Lasers and laser line modules offer measurement capabilities that can catch misalignment, reduce time in finding problems with production, and make gap measurements in a large variety of automobile and aircraft manufacturing applications.

Antiglare vs. Antireflective Glass
Article | Abrisa Technologies

Nonglare glass is manufactured by acid etching one or two surfaces of the glass; AR (antireflective) glass has been optically coated on one or two sides to diminish reflections and increase the light transmission, and to reduce surface glare and increase substrate transmission and brightness.

Aerial Hyperspectral Imaging: OCI Hyperspectral Imagers
Application Note | By Owen Wu, BaySpec Inc.

BaySpec’s OCI-UAV hyperspectral imagers are designed for use on small UAVs to monitor the details of spatial, temporal, and spectral representation of ground objects. This application note discusses the benefits these imagers offer and delivers example images for multiple topography analysis.
