Advantages Of Injection Molding Process For Prototypes Case Study
In fast-moving markets, product life can be short. As a result, any delay in getting innovative products to market can cut significantly into potential revenue. This is especially true in consumer markets where successful products are quickly imitated, and the sales volume of the first of its kind to market can be enormous. In the competitive consumer electronics market, rigorous testing and evaluation of prototypes would be critical to ensure that the product could meet consumer expectations and hold it’s own against competitors.

Thermopile Array Modules
Thermopile Array Modules from Excelitas Technologies include detectors composed of several thermocouples typically connected in series. They are DC-type detectors and, thus, best suited for non-contact temperature measurement. These thermopile modules are based on silicon micromachining technology and a special IR-absorption layer covers the hot junctions, creating the sensor's sensitive area.

Using Raman Spectroscopy To Detect Malignant Changes In Tissues
By Princeton Instruments Inc.
Accurate, rapid, and noninvasive detection and diagnosis of malignant disease in tissues is an important goal of biomedical research. Optical methods, such as diffuse reflectance, fluorescence spectroscopy, and Raman spectroscopy, have all been investigated as ways to attain this goal. Diffuse reflectance utilizes the absorption and scattering properties of tissues, particularly from cell nuclei and stroma.

MWIR InSb Infrared Cameras Datasheet
IRCameras’ MWIR InSb IRC800 series cameras utilize the most advanced infrared focal plane technology available today to offer the ultimate in flexibility for research scientists. The IRC800 series of high-performance infrared cameras provide the superior performance of an InSb sensor with a choice of detector resolutions. Unmatched sensitivity, ultra low noise, no blooming, and no crosstalk make the IRC800 series ideal for exceptionally demanding scientific, industrial, and military applications.

Datasheet: Linear Irradiation Type UV-LED Unit
These UV-LED units work in new production processes and devices which couldn't accommodate conventional lamps. These UV-LED spot lights are 90% smaller, use 1/30th power as ordinary UV lamps, and cut CO2 emissions by 20,000 kg per year. These units require no duct installation or chillers.

Datasheet: High-Sensitivity Mil-Hardened InGaAs SWIR Camera
Goodrich's high-sensitivity InGaAs SWIR SU640HSX mil-hardened camera is smaller, lighter weight, and consumes less power than cooled mid-wave or long-wave infrared imagers and competing germanium-based cameras.
