Spotlight On Scientific Cameras
Cooled sCMOS With Highest 26 MP Resolution: pco.edge 26
Product | PCO-TECH Inc.

PCO offers the pco.edge 26 sCMOS camera with 5120 x 5120 pixel resolution and a 2.5 x 2.5 µm² pixel size for achieving the maximum level of spatial resolution for many applications, including microscopy imaging with low magnification.

Compact, Versatile High-Performance Camera System: FASTCAM NOVA
Product | Photron, Inc.

With three different available models, the NOVA delivers 12-bit image recording rates up to 12,800 frames per second (fps) at megapixel image resolution and shutter speeds to less than 0.2 µs.

High-Speed Infrared Camera: FAST-TrackIR Series
Product | TELOPS

TELOPS’ FAST-TrackIR series is designed with a maximum data throughput larger than 1 Gigapixel/s and can produce thermal images at rates up to 355 fps. These high-performance cameras are sensitive to temperature differences as small as 20 mK.

High-Resolution, Compact InGaAs SWIR Camera: Bobcat-640
Product | Xenics

The Bobcat-640 is a high-resolution, compact, InGaAs SWIR camera ideal for waste sorting, semiconductor inspection, failure analysis, food inspection, and other specialized quality inspection and high-temperature process control applications.

LIST Researchers Use FLIR Cameras To Study The Electrocaloric Effect
Application Note | FLIR Systems, Inc - Research & Science

Refrigerant devices typically use fluid coolants turned into gases to cool things down. These gases, however, may become harmful to the environment, so research is being done on the use of solid materials as a substitute to cool down food, beverages, medicine, and even electronic devices.

How Fiber Optics Can Ensure Grain Quality, Keep Milk Safe, And Make Pretzels Crispy
Article | By Dr. Werner Sklarek and Matthias Quast, SCHOTT North America, Inc. - Lighting and Imaging

Fiber optics offer a food-safe way to perform continuous spectroscopic analysis in challenging food production environments such as liquids, hot ovens, and tight spaces.

The Seductive Siren Call Of The “Megapixel Lens” (And Why You Shouldn’t Listen To It)
Article | By Stuart W. Singer and Jim Sullivan, Schneider Optics

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

3-D Printing Creates Big Innovation From Tiny Parts For Medtech Firm
Case Study | Protolabs, Inc.

Many new healthcare technologies have advanced over the past decade to enable doctors to perform more procedures in their offices over hospital-only settings. However, hysteroscopy — used to identify or treat problems of the uterus — has been slower to respond to this shift.
