  1. To Stay Ahead In Spectroscopy, Watch New Technologies

    People working in spectroscopy must keep up with other technologies that will affect their own practice.

  2. Improving Microscopy And Biological Imaging With Backside Illuminated (BI) sCMOS Sensors

    Biological labs can get better and more quantifiable image data from microscopes with sCMOS sensor-based devices.

  3. OEMs: Expand Your Product Portfolio With sCMOS Sensors

    OEMs can enhance their products with expanded capabilities and attract customers by incorporating scientific CMOS sensor technology.

  4. Sensor-Based Food Inspection And Sorting

    Food inspection based on sensors for the visual, shortwave infrared, UV and X-ray realms in connection with automated sorting and classification methods has become a major field of application for advanced image capture systems and infrared cameras such as those made by Xenics. This case study tells how Xenics' line scan SWIR camera Lynx is used for copmlex imaging tasks.

  5. CMOS Image Sensors: System Engineering Considerations For Selecting 100+ MP Imaging Sensors

    While digital CCD image sensors have been around for decades, CMOS Image Sensor (CIS) technologies become more advanced and capable, they are becoming the design choice for many applications. Today’s advanced CISs are available with more than 100MP on the commercial market. This white paper presents important considerations to make in the design selection phase of high resolution CIS devices, especially in regard to size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C).

  6. Fluorescence Lifetime Imaging -- Application Simplified

    The pco.flim camera system is the first luminescence lifetime imaging camera designed to use a two tap CMOS image sensor. This white paper discusses the pco.flim camera, and how it simplifies the process of fluorescence lifetime imaging.

  7. Improving Additive Manufacturing With The Help Of Infrared

    Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is revolutionizing manufacturing. In contrast with subtractive manufacturing methods such as machining, AM technologies create components directly from a computer model, adding material only where needed. Heat is often an integral part of this process – one that needs to be monitored closely in order to see consistent results. This paper discusses how infrared (IR) cameras can help manufacturers find systematic problems and determine what changes are needed to maintain product quality.

  8. Improving Vision With Shortwave Infrared Line Scan Cameras

    With better performance and lower cost, shortwave infrared line scan cameras are proving their worth in a variety of machine vision systems, from inspecting and sorting food to detecting cracks inside solar cells.

  9. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    CMOS sensors from Canon have been engineered to meet the demanding requirements needed for optimal UAV performance, empowering OEMs to develop market-leading UAV solutions.

  10. Microscopy

    Canon CMOS sensors deliver the performance capabilities needed for the unique challenges of microscopy.
