Live from SPIE Photonics West
Check out the videos below to see some of the innovations highlighted this week at SPIE Photonics West 2017.
Next Generation Detector Technologies For High Speed Thermal Applications
Next Generation Detector Technologies For High Speed Thermal Applications
Our Photonics West 2017 video coverage kicked off with Ross Overstreet from FLIR. He gave us a quick introduction to two new thermal camera platforms they’re showcasing at the show, and then discussed the variety of applications that infrared imaging technology can be used for. Watch the video for information on airbag testing, automotive brake and rotor testing, explosion event analysis, aerodynamic heating on flight surfaces, and more.
The Challenges Of Using And Manufacturing Optical Filters In Earth-Observation
The Challenges Of Using And Manufacturing Optical Filters In Earth-Observation
Optical filters play a key part in providing wavelength selections in earth-observation systems, but they provide a unique challenge in space-based applications. Jason Palidwar with Iridian Spectral talked to us about some of those challenges, and how his organization has addressed them so that they can be effectively used in applications involving lightning monitoring, deforestation studies, climate change observations, or ship tracking.
Considerations For Specialized Fiber Optics In Rugged Environments
Considerations For Specialized Fiber Optics In Rugged Environments
Frank Weiss with Gooch & Housego offered practical advice on considerations one should take into account when specifying fiber optics for deployment in rugged environments, including life cycle requirements, the pitfalls of underspecifying, and the potential headaches that can be involved in not paying close attention to export control parameters. Watch the video to learn what you should know about fiber optics in industrial, military, underwater, and other challenging environments.

Chris Johnston with Sierra-Olympic talked to us about the challenges of developing high definition thermal imagers, as well as some of his company’s accomplishments regarding independent infrared imaging.
Achieving High Performance And Cost Effective Solutions In Optical Fabrication
Achieving High Performance And Cost Effective Solutions In Optical Fabrication
Dan Bukaty with PG&O (Precision Glass & Optics) talked to us about how over 100 years of collective engineering experience at his organization has been leveraged to deliver high performance optics without breaking the bank.
Product Video: Surface Metrology In Adverse Environments
Product Video: Surface Metrology In Adverse Environments
Erin McDonnel and Eric Felkel with Zygo gave us a glimpse into how their interferometers can be used to perform accurate surface metrology in adverse environments (like a trade show floor). Watch the video to see how this technology can be used perform surface metrology noisy and impractical manufacturing environments.
