Spotlight On Lasers And Sources
Why And How To Profile Challenging Laser Applications

Ophir makes quantitative laser beam analysis easy and effective. New products and accessories keep laser processes efficient and deliver important insights into laser performance for systems designers and users.

Revolutionizing The Air We Breathe

Laser Components dives into a case study performed at the Pensacola Yacht Club, addressing the moisture issues the club faced as a result of the high humidity climate and shallow water tables. Data collection based in UVC LED technology was used for dehumidification. 

How To Integrate Laser Control And Motion Control To Achieve More With Less

Ultrafast lasers are becoming accessible to researchers, systems integrators, and OEM tool builders. New features, higher power, and efficient second and third harmonic generations are pushing boundaries of next gen use cases, and PI is meeting these advances with innovative motion control solutions.

Measuring Aspheres With The VFA+ System

With asphere production, one part of the process is no more important than the others. Ignoring materials, intended usage, manufacturability, or measurability often leads to a lens too expensive to produce and too difficult to measure. Learn how VFA+ can help you make educated decisions.

Industry Insights
Challenges When Making Laser Measurements In Vacuum Environments

Making laser measurements within a vacuum can be challenging. Depending on the vacuum level and customer’s requirements, Gentec EO offers suitable solutions for outgassing issues, signal transmission, heat dissipation, and more.

Non-Contact Optical Position Sensing Using Silicon Photodetectors

Optical position sensing techniques offer unique solutions in non-contact measurement applications. Many types of silicon detectors are available, each offering specific advantages that lend themselves to certain measurements. 

Confirming Picometer Performance Of Nanopositioning Systems

Mad City Labs is the only nanopositioning company showing real-world experimental verification of <50-pm closed-loop step-resolution.
