Industry Insights
How To Enhance Optical Blocking Using Multiple Filters

Any background light that reaches the detector of an optical system can greatly compromise signal-to-noise ratio. Using more than one blocking filter is a solution that requires careful consideration.

Low Sparkle Non-Glare Glass For Uniform Diffuse Reflection

Low sparkle non-glare glass provides sharp rendering of images with increased clarity touch displays, tablets, e-readers, digital signage, and more, making them easily readable in direct sunlight.

How Active Alignment Speeds Up Optical Systems Manufacturing

A foundational shift is ongoing in positioning technology, moving from positioners doing precisely what they are told to a new paradigm of truly intelligent positioning. Positioners can now perform autonomous optimization of process quantities, and the effects on industry will be significant.

Aerial Hyperspectral Imaging: OCI Hyperspectral Imagers

BaySpec’s OCI-UAV hyperspectral imagers are designed for use on small UAVs to monitor the details of spatial, temporal, and spectral representation of ground objects. This app note discusses benefits these imagers offer and delivers example images for multiple topography analysis.

Optical Coherence Tomography

Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a noninvasive, high-resolution optical imaging technology that creates cross-sectional images from interference signals received from an object under investigation and a local reference.

Lasers Used To Survey Deep-Sea Objects

Researchers from the Alfred Wegener Institute have been trying to learn the effects of the current changes in the Arctic Ocean on the global ecosystem. Laser Components' FLEXPOINT modules are now being used in various underwater missions to assist scientists in answering these important questions.

Boiling Research For Energy Advancements

In this case study, researchers study boiling mechanics with high-speed cameras to advance energy applications such as electronics cooling, cryogenic fuel storage, and more.
