FLIR X6900sc FLIR X6900sc — High Speed MWIR Thermal Camera
FLIR is bringing the world’s fastest 640 x 512 resolution commercial thermal camera to SPIE DCS. At a blazing fast 1000 fps, this camera records full window 640 x 512 data to on-camera RAM for up to 26 sec – perfectly blending the latest high speed visible camera features with the outstanding thermal technology you expect from FLIR.  Check out sample application videos and learn about this revolutionary high speed thermal camera at www.flir.com/x6900sc, and be sure to stop by booth #822 at SPIE DCS.
Benefits Of SLS (Strained Layer Supperlattice) Technology
Benefits Of SLS (Strained Layer Supperlattice) Technology
FLIR’s scientific segment engineer James Ramsey kicked off our coverage of SPIE’s DCS 2016 exhibition by giving us a rundown on the benefits of SLS technology. Watch the video for details on the lower cost, shorter integration times, improved uniformity, and wider temperate measurement range that SLS technology provides.
The Challenges And Benefits Of Wafer Molding Technology
The Challenges And Benefits Of Wafer Molding Technology
As lenses get smaller and smaller, particularly where low-cost and high-volume commercial applications are concerned, conventional molding methods are reaching their limit. Umicore has recently adopted wafer molding technology to address this very issue, and their global technical director John Franks spent some time with us at SPIE’s DCS 2016 to speak with us about it. Watch the video to learn more about lenses manufactured through wafer molding technology.
How To Specify Optical Coatings For Sensor Applications
How To Specify Optical Coatings For Sensor Applications
With over 30 years of optical coating experience, Deposition Sciences, Inc. has learned a thing or two about the intricacies of their specifications. This year at SPIE’s DCS exhibition, Donna with DSI gave us a quick on-location hello from the show floor before turning it over to principle investigator Kevin Gibbons so that he could offer some advice on what you should consider before determining an optical coating’s specifications for sensing applications.
