11.15.23 -- Using Different Illumination Sources? Get Ready To Change Your Lens Focus


SPIE Photonics West 2024

The industry’s flagship event: 27 January—1 February 2024


More Signal, Less Background: Improving Signal To Noise Ratio

The path to improving signal-to-noise ratio - the ratio of the power of signal (desired input) to the power of background noise (undesired input) - is to reduce the power of the noise – less background.

Magnetic Levitation For The Next Level Of Precision Motion And Control

“What makes magnetic levitation so unique is the contactless virtual bearing we can achieve within our control system.” Take a look inside the development process of magnetic levitation solutions.

Color Temperature Adjustment Filters For Technical Or Aesthetic Illumination

Color temperature adjustment filters modify light spectra for diverse applications like architecture, cinema, medical fields, and security, allowing precise control over color appearance.

Hands-On Quantum Computing Learning

A hands-on introduction to quantum computing promotes more immediately applicable expertise, opening opportunities for non-graduate-level workers.

Using Different Illumination Sources? Get Ready To Change Your Lens Focus

Using a visible corrected lens with monochromatic wavelength sources can be problematic if proper steps are not taken to understand the elements impacting lens performance.
