pco.panda – sCMOS Technology In A Compact Design

The pco.panda is the newest member of PCO’s state-of-the-art sCMOS camera systems, which have revolutionized the scientific camera market since their introduction in 2010. Small-size dimensions of roughly 65 mm3, more than 40 fps @ 4.2 MPixel, and a quantum efficiency up to 80% make it suitable for countless applications. The addition of the USB 3.1 interface enables a new generation of cameras with fast data transfer and direct power via USB cable, making external power supplies redundant. Learn more.

Intro To Laser Management: Laser Profiling 101
By Mark S. Szorik, Ophir Photonics

Traditionally, laser operators only verify a laser’s average power or energy to improve efficiency and, if everything is in order, put their laser back into service. This article discusses key considerations and basic steps required to identify and use a camera profiling system (arrayed camera, attenuator, and beam dump) for laser management.

Spotlight On Scientific Cameras
HD Format Digital SWIR InGaAs Camera

The OWL 1280 from Raptor Photonics is a digital shortwave infrared (SWIR) InGaAs camera in HD format, ideal for surveillance and scientific imaging applications including range finding, vision enhancement, astronomy, and hyperspectral imaging. 

Raman Spectroscopy Of Pigmented Human Tissue In The Shortwave Infrared

The researchers at Erasmus MC University Medical Center in the Netherlands have developed a method of Raman spectroscopy that will substantially further and accelerate the diagnosis of melanoma.

The GL2048R SWIR InGaAs line scan camera’s high resolution, stability, and reliability make it especially ideal for optical coherence tomography (OCT) applications studying blood flow or large tissue volumes at 1.04, 1.32, and 1.55 µm.

Radiometric Detection And Imaging: Tamarisk320 Precision Series

The Tamarisk320 Precision Series of micro thermal imagers for radiometric detection and imaging offers 320 x 240 pixel resolution and are ideal for applications involving test and measurement, fire detection, equipment monitoring, perimeter security, and more.

Infrared Imaging For Material Characterization In Fracture Mechanics Experiments

When developing new materials, the characterization of mechanical properties becomes extremely important. Many different measurements, as well as the nature of the material to be characterized, dictate what parameters are needed and to what extent. 

High-Speed Imaging With Laser Illumination

No matter the quality of a camera system, it cannot help an image where the subject is incorrectly or poorly lit. High-speed imaging applications can utilize a wide range of light sources, but applications like welding, ballistics, impact visualization, and shockwave analysis may require laser illumination.

High-Speed Cameras Make Sound Visible And Improve Noise Absorbers

It is extremely important for the airline industry and its research groups to support and develop noise reduction strategies not only to limit hearing impairment, but also to reduce various diseases like high blood pressure or stomach ulcers.
