Flying a Sensors Unlimited 640HSX InGaAs SWIR camera, the GHGSat’s microSat circles the Earth every 90 minutes collecting infrared images. Data from the microSat will enable industries to monitor and quantify their own carbon dioxide and methane emissions to better manage and reduce their impact on air quality.
Piezoelectric ultrasonic transducers open up new and innovative therapeutic possibilities that improve or even substitute many established procedures. Minimally invasive and gentle treatment methods with improved therapy success and fewer side effects can be realized using piezoelectric ultrasound transducers.
The Breeze is a handheld spectrometer that features proprietary miniaturized optics and high efficiency for maximum sensitivity with high-speed acquisition. This compact device allows operation with the touch of a button.
Opto Diode Corporation introduces a high-performance, two-stage, cooled lead selenide (PbSe) detector that operates in the mid-infrared (IR) spectral region with peak sensitivity between 4.3 and 4.5 µm. The cooler on the BXT2S-28T allows the detector element to operate as low as minus 45 °C to maximize detectivity (D*).
Advanced Photonix, a division of OSI Optoelectronics, introduces compact and rugged Large Area Avalanche Photodiodes (LAAPDs). APDs are robust, compact, and lightweight compared to PMT’s and require little or no cooling, making them ideal for applications requiring durability, portability, small space envelopes, or operation in harsh environments.
Allied Vision offers the new Prosilica GT series of cameras designed with Sony Pregius CMOS sensors for high-quality imaging systems. With resolutions up to 31.4 megapixel at varied aspect ratios, these cameras are ideal for high-definition imaging applications with demanding requirements on robustness and design-in flexibility.
The Phantom TMX 5010 provides extreme frame rates utilizing Vision Research's newest technology, the back side illuminated high-speed sensor. This versatile, full-featured camera is ideal for a wide variety of applications.
