Raman Spectroscopy Enhanced By A Back-Illuminated sCMOS Camera

Operating in a climate-controlled lab or on the Martian surface, back-illuminated sCMOS detectors provide high sensitivity, high dynamic range, and low noise, even in low-light conditions.

Measuring Challenges Of Wide Divergent Beams

Wide, divergent beams place specific requirements on a measurement system. The apertures of conventional beam profilers are too small to collect the entire spot of large or divergent light sources, while diverging beams cannot be accurately measured with regular detectors. 

Industry Insights
FLIR Thermal Imaging Cameras Monitor Stress Levels Of Helicopter Pilots

Italian helicopter manufacturer Leonardo wanted a reliable and objective way to measure the stress pilots experience so they would be able to design more functional cockpits and train helicopter pilots more efficiently. 

Finished Infrared Optics

PG&O finished infrared (IR) optics are designed for a range of applications, including biomedical, industrial, military and defense, homeland security, surveillance, and more. These optics operate from 0.75 µm, the near-infrared (NIR), out to 15 µm, the longwave-infrared (LWIR) spectrum.

Optics For Lasers Of The Future

Many research centers, like those for nuclear fusion and cancer, require high-energy lasers with megawatt and petawatt power capabilities. For centers like these to make breakthroughs, the optics used must be extremely robust with low absorption levels and state-of-the-art coating. 

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.

Is Your Laser Cutting Machine Losing Power Over Time?

Output power is one of the most critical parameters of laser cutting machines which could decrease over time due to wear and tear or user errors. Therefore, diagnosing it by using appropriate power monitoring instruments and techniques is easy and saves time and money for your business.

Thin-Film Interference Filters For LIDAR

LIDAR is used for obstacle avoidance in autonomous vehicles, urban planning, security, infrastructure development, and other applications. This app note details how high-performance, ultra-narrowband interference filters improve LIDAR signal-to-noise ratios in specific applications.
