09.20.22 -- The Impact Of Thin-Film Optics On Today's World

 
The Role Of Thin-Film Optics In qPCR And COVID-19 Detection
 

The COVID-19 pandemic has necessitated rapid and accurate quantitative analysis of dangerous pathogens. The “gold standard” for DNA detection today is quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR). In this article, learn how thin-film optics play a role in DNA detection.

Thin-Film Interference Filters For LIDAR
 

LIDAR is used for obstacle avoidance in autonomous vehicles, urban planning, security, infrastructure development, and other applications. This application note details how high-performance, ultra-narrow bandpass interference filters improve LIDAR signal-to-noise ratios in specific applications.

Thin-Film Optical Components For Use In Non-Linear Optical Systems
 

Bio-imaging and detection techniques that use non-linear optical (NLO) phenomena have led to great advancements, such as super-resolution images, label-free visualization of naturally occurring biomolecules, and greater freedom for working with in-vivo samples. This white paper discusses the importance of choosing thin-film optical components for NLO systems to ensure optimal signal strength, resolution, and image quality.
