Bright Ideas presents the most captivating news and innovations in optics and photonics. This week, we look at more precise X-ray imaging, The Moody Lab’s development of a method for the on-chip generation of a single photon, an industry collaboration that resulted in a new era of 3D cameras, and more.
Digital image correlation, particle image velocimetry, and schlieren imaging provide engineers in the aerospace industry with insight into the strength and durability of materials, the characteristics of engine combustion processes, the aerodynamics of objects in flight, and much more.
Recent advances in IR camera technologies, such as fast camera detector readouts and high-performance electronics, allow high-speed imagery. This article is part 5 of a handbook by FLIR that discusses the use of ultra-high-speed thermography with IR cameras.
Temporal multiplexing is an alternative approach to hyperspectral imaging that uses a fast LED technology. Instead of broadband illuminating and diffracting the spectrum of light in the camera, a broadband sensitive chip is used, and the illumination spectrum is varied over time via fast triggering.

By using the 1.05 µm central wavelength, instrumentation companies are now developing systems to image deeper through the retina into the blood vessel layer (called the choroid) to diagnose eye diseases and monitor treatment.
G&H is pleased to announce that we will be attending the SPIE BiOS and Photonics West exhibitions, taking place January 28 to January 29, 2023, and January 31 to February 2, 2023, in San Francisco, CA.
Raptor Photonics' Mark Donaghy takes us inside their corporate headquarters in Larne, Northern Ireland (U.K.), and discusses the company's products, markets, and manufacturing processes and capabilities.
The Phantom VEO 640 is a high-speed camera ideal for HD capture and scientific image techniques. The proprietary CMOS sensor strikes the perfect balance between increased image data and light sensitivity.
The Ninox 640 SU from Raptor Photonics continues to push the boundaries in scientific SWIR imaging. This camera is vacuum cooled to -80°C InGaAs, offering ultra-low dark current for longer exposure times up to 5 minutes.
Hamamatsu introduces the ORCA-Quest with ultimate performance. The C15550-20UP is the world's first camera to incorporate the qCMOS image sensor and resolve the number of photoelectrons using a newly developed dedicated technology. The camera achieves the ultimate in quantitative imaging.
