Check out the videos below to see some of the innovations highlighted this week at SPIE Photonics West 2018.
Optimization Of Workflow In High-Speed Cameras
Optimization Of Workflow In High-Speed Cameras
High-speed cameras, especially with higher resolutions, require a greater amount of effort when it comes to managing the workflow of data from its acquisition through post-processing. Chris Kerr of Vision Research presents a white paper that walks through different scenarios for different use models of high speed cameras, as well as different techniques for managing the procured data. Watch the video for more information.
Datacom Filters: Lighting The Cloud
Datacom Filters: Lighting The Cloud
As Datacom applications become more widespread, greater requirements are placed on optical filter reliability, storage capabilities, smaller sizes, and costliness. At the show, Jason Palidwar of Iridian Spectral discussed the importance of the use of optical filters in regards to how they help transfer, store, and access data from the Cloud. Check out the video for more information on these interconnect devices and how they are involved in lighting the Cloud.
How New Technologies Enable New Applications For Linescan SWIR
How New Technologies Enable New Applications For Linescan SWIR
Applications such as machine vision, spectroscopy, and OCT can have a wide variety of requirements that often conflict with each other. Innovative technologies that can cover a variety of requirements, such as high-resolution, low noise, high-dynamic range, versatility, high-speed, lower cost, and general image quality, can help expand the use of linescan detectors throughout SWIR wavelengths. Raf Vandermissen of Xenics spoke to us about these innovative technologies that enable new applications for SWIR linescan detectors, including their new XLIN-FC
Understanding Laser Induced Threshold (LIDT) For Laser Optics
Understanding Laser Induced Threshold (LIDT) For Laser Optics
The process for finding the laser induced damage threshold (LIDT) for laser optics has become increasingly more complex with different considerations for determining measuring and testing laser optics, including the laser's the wavelength, beam size, polarization, and angle of incidence. Watch the video by Huyen Vu from Laser Components USA on the different techniques utilized for LIDT measurements, such as one-on-one shot testing and S-on-one testing.

On the last day of the show, Andrew Bridges with Photron introduced us to the CRYSTA. This system takes a conventional high-speed camera and adds an affixed micropolarizer array to a CMOS sensor. This gives it the ability to detect phase difference, which allows the operator to plot birefringence or retardation in transparent or semi-transparent materials. Watch the video to learn more about the system and to see it in action.

Thomas Bauersachs with pco.tech took time to show us their new back-illuminated sensor-based pco.panda — an sCMOS camera featuring up to 95% quantum efficiency. After that, we got to see the high-speed, 12-bit pco.dimax cs, as well as some of the compelling slow-motion imagery it's able to capture. Lastly, he showed us the pco.flim — a scientific camera system ideal for use in applications involving fluorescence lifetime imaging.
