10.14.20 -- Micromirror TIRF Microscopy | Considerations For Near-IR LEDs

Industry Insights
Optical Monitoring System Improves Thin-Film Coating Accuracy

In the past, a thin-film design software was used to help develop the coating, but the real challenge was in actually replicating the design thickness and the material indexes inside the coating chamber, without any errors. 

Is Your Software Developer Kit A Solution Or A Problem?

When implementing a camera into your application, an SDK that is accessible, stable, and well-supported by its manufacturer is as critical as quality hardware.

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.

Practical Considerations For Near-IR LEDs

This application note provides practical considerations for current-driven LED devices.

Advanced IR Optical Assemblies For UAVs And Drones Meeting SWaP Constraints

UAV and drone infrared imaging systems contain detectors that are larger in size and smaller in pixel size, presenting challenges for UAV optics. This app note discusses how advanced IR optical assemblies can be used for UAVs and drones that must meet SWaP constraints.

Micromirror TIRF Microscopy: Technique And Applications

Total internal reflection fluorescence (TIRF) microscopy is used to watch biological processes unfold in real time. Taking advantage of the ability to label individual molecules with different colors of fluorescent tags, TIRF microscopy lets scientists view the complex molecular assemblies that govern cellular processes.

Specifying Surface Figure And Wavefront Distortion For Multilayer Optical Filters

This white paper helps the reader understand where, when, how, and how much to specify wavefront distortion to ensure that functional requirements of filters are guaranteed while unnecessary and costly constraints are avoided.
