SCHOTT Electronic Packaging offers an array of sterilizable LED modules for the fulfillment of lighting needs in harsh environment applications, including and especially devices used in the medical field that must undergo repeated sterilization processes.
In ophthalmology, lasers are used for refractive surgery to burn, cut, or remove objects to achieve optimal refractive power. This article discusses the use of excimer and/or femtosecond lasers in multiple types of operations to correct defective vision
Canon USA, Inc. Optoelectronic Components
Canon USA has developed laser rotary encoders that can provide 81,000 pulses with a 36-mm diameter by using the light-diffraction interference method in conjunction with a semiconductor laser acting as the light-emitting element.
Vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) are a type of semiconductor laser diode. This article discusses VCSEL measurement solutions and how Ophir equipment can be used to get reliable power and beam profile data on VCSELs.
