Spotlight On Quantum Sensing
Tough Enough For Space, Stable Enough For Quantum: Fiber-Q

“Fiber-coupled acousto-optic modulators” (FCAOM) is not a phrase that rolls naturally off the tongue, yet this slightly awkward descriptor belies an elegant and robust solution for directly controlling the timing, intensity, and temporal shape of the output from fiber lasers.

SWIR Images Monitor Air Quality From Space

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.

Precision Velocity Measurement: Canon Non-Contact Displacement Sensor

Non-contact sensing is invaluable in applications where measurements may be rendered unacceptably imprecise by slippage and poor speed management or equipment or products may be damaged by contact.

New Intensified sCMOS Camera Technology Improves High-Speed Analysis

Intensified sCMOS technology provides the technical solution when other imaging technology does not meet your application’s speed, exposure time, or resolution requirements.

Industry Insights
Overview Of Laser Modes In Optical Fiber

Laser light in an optical fiber can travel in one or many modes. Long-distance telecom works better when there is just one mode. High-power applications benefit from having many modes.

Principles Of Scanning Nitrogen Vacancy Magnetometry Explained

Scanning NV magnetometry might not achieve atomic scale resolution, but it provides very high spatial resolution and acceptable magnetic sensitivity compared to other techniques.

Piezoelectric Ultrasound Transducers For Therapeutics

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. 

Intro To Multiphoton Microscopy

Multiphoton microscopy is ideal for capturing high-resolution 3D images with reduced photobleaching and phototoxicity compared to traditional confocal microscopy techniques.
