NIST’s Superconducting Camera 400 Times More Powerful Than Any Other Device Of Its Type

Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and their colleagues have built a superconducting camera containing 400,000 pixels — 400 times more than any other device of its type.


Designing Optical Filters For Earth Observation And Satcom

Space is the new technological frontier with constellations of satellites designed for earth observation and gathering data at unprecedented rates. These next-gen satellites need next-gen technology.

VIS And NIR Imaging In One Shot

Spectral imaging benefits from a well-calibrated instrument, an intuitive user interface, and pinpoint accuracy, all combined into one package.

In-Vivo Imaging In NIR-II / SWIR (600-1,700 nm)

Non-invasive fluorescence imaging of small animals has been used widely for years as a method in preclinical research. Techniques have developed in recent years but still face limitations.

The Seductive Call Of The “Megapixel Lens” (And Why You Should Ignore It)

In response to the popularity of megapixel cameras and sensors, many lens manufacturers are marketing "megapixel lenses." The problem? There's no such thing.

Vertical Linear Slide For Fast Nano-Focusing, Scanning Provides Nanometer Resolution

PI invented fast focusing stages with nanometer resolution more than 30 years ago. Its PIFOC® product family spans hundreds of standard and custom products, optimized for tasks including surface metrology in semiconductor applications, super-resolution microscopy, slide scanning, genome sequencing, and magnetic tweezers.


Optimal Laser Performance: What Parameters Should Be Measured?

When you purchase a new laser, it always comes with a long list of specifications. Some parameters might not be useful to you, but others might be important to your application.

3D Machine Vision: A Giant Leap For Factory Automation

3D machine vision systems “see,” analyze, and make decisions to meet production requirements of high accuracy, high speed, and low maintenance while withstanding factory conditions.

Ingenuity & Instrumentation: Creating A Novel 4D Microscopy Method

Researchers sought to explore the viral infection process before the virus has bonded to tissue, understanding how viruses navigate the epithelial space, through mucus and the periciliary layer.
