Innovation In AR Lens Coatings: High-Quality Coatings For High-Power Lasers
By Emiliano Ioffe, Ophir Optics

Lens coatings are an essential part of high-power CO2 laser systems. Coatings must protect the lens and allow for the highest levels of optical performance, with low levels of absorption, a long life expectancy, and an acceptable cost/benefit ratio.

Understanding USB 3.1 And USB 3.2
Article | FLIR Systems, Inc - OEM Cores and Components

What does USB 3.1 offer machine vision? This article explains USB 3.1, as well as the differences between USB 3.1 Generation 1 and Generation 2 and the practical gains each offers machine vision developers.

Hot Biology: Investigating The Thermal Physiology Of Birds And Mammals
Article | FLIR Systems, Inc - Research & Science

Many details of the thermal biology of animals are unknown. To fill the gaps in this knowledge, researchers at the Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health, and Comparative Medicine at the University of Glasgow, Scotland, are using thermal imaging to learn as much as possible in order to help animals in the long run.

The Hygiene And Reliability Challenge: How Glass-Sealed Components Enable The Design Of Fully Autoclavable, Long-Lasting Medical Devices
Article | SCHOTT Electronic Packaging

When autoclave sterilization procedures are used, it is important to have components that are able to repeatedly survive the harsh process. The arrival of autoclavable LEDs bring the light source directly to treatment sites while being able to withstand the heat and moisture of the autoclave.

Theory And Measurement Of The Modulation Transfer Function (MTF)
White Paper | Image Science Ltd

MTF is a quantitative and objective measure of the quality of an image formed by a lens or an electro-optical system. This measurement is appropriate for lenses of all qualities and can be calculated from lens design data, which enables theoretical and actual performances to be compared. 

Can Your Laser Micro Drilling System Do All This?
Article | Canon USA, Inc. Optoelectronic Components

The recent introduction of 5-axis laser micro drill system expands the limits of micrometer range drilling. Canon’s unique technology creates flexible hole shapes and wider angles at significantly higher processing speeds. Stent production, injector hole drilling, and micromachining will benefit.
