Using Next-Generation Thin-Film Optical Filters For Fluorescence Imaging And Detection Systems

Within any fluorescence application, there are three basic filters that are needed for operation—the excitation filter, the emission filter, and the beamsplitter. This white paper further discusses the use of Alluxa’s thin-film optical filters in fluorescence imaging and detection systems.

Antmicro's Open Jetson Nano Baseboard With NVIDIA's Latest Production SoMs And ALVIUM Cameras

One of the motivations behind open hardware designs at Antmicro is to showcase the newest processing technologies and provide a starting point for discussion about customized products—with different form factors, interfaces, and additional software.

Glass Strengthening Methods
Strengthening glass can be done via three primary processes: tempering, thermal strengthening, and chemical strengthening in order to increase the heat resistance and overall strength of the glass. This article provides an overview of all three processes.
Selecting A Hyperspectral Imager To Bring Critical Data Into View

The hyperspectral imager comes with challenges, not the least of which is choosing the right one to use for any given application. That decision depends in part on the user’s requirements, the wavelength range in which the imager will be used, and the intended application.

Improving Additive Manufacturing With The Help Of Infrared

Additive manufacturing technologies create components directly from a computer model, adding material only where needed. This app note discusses how infrared cameras can help manufacturers find systematic problems and determine the changes needed to maintain product quality.

Advanced IR Optical Assemblies For UAVs And Drones Meeting SWaP Constraints

This application note discusses how advanced IR optical assemblies can be used for UAVs and drones that must meet SWaP constraints.

Optical Thin Film Coatings Provide Safer Flight Conditions

Specialized thin film optical coatings are currently being designed into customized displays that serve to modify the viewing angle and eliminate unwanted stray light that would otherwise distract the pilot(s) and crew in commercial and military aircraft cockpits.
