  2. Explore The Universe With Powerful CMOS Sensors

    Canon CMOS Sensors give astronomers the high-performance imaging capabilities they need to explore more of the universe.

  3. Why Choose Canon Industrial Sensors?

    CMOS sensors from Canon feature proprietary innovations at the pixel-level that translate into industry-leading performance in advanced industrial, medical, and scientific applications.

  4. Ultrafast Laser Optics: Balancing Costs With Successful Outcomes

    This white paper explores the “false economy” provided by lower quality, lower cost optic components and its impact on the ultimate success or failure of research experiments and other ultrafast laser applications.

  5. Understanding Antireflection Nano-Texture Surface Optics

    A nanostructure pattern is created on the surface of high purity fused silica plano-convex lenses to produce an antireflection effect. Because this manufacturing process uses no thin films materials, the lens has a very high damage threshold limit. This paper talks about the different types of antireflection nano-texture products and what they offer in each application.

  6. Using A Prism Compressor For Ultrashort Laser Pulses

    This white paper describes in detail the effect of dispersion on ultrashort pulses, and an experiment using prism compressor for dispersion compensation in ultrashort laser pulses.

  7. Innovation Is Personal: Cleveland Clinic Alliance Spurs Med Advances

    Last year, a family member was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. Fortunately, the story has a happy ending. A year later, she is cancer free, thanks to an innovative, lifesaving procedure that wasn’t available not that long ago.

  8. Remote Sensing With LiDAR Requires Optical Filter Trade-Offs

    Engineers and designers working on LiDAR applications should consider critical filter issues early on.

  9. Understanding VCSEL Measurement Solutions

    Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) are a type of semiconductor laser diode. This article discusses VCSEL measurement solutions and how Ophir equipment can be used to get reliable power and beam profile data on VCSELs.

  10. Robots, Lasers, And Artificial Intelligence Join Forces Undersea

    Subsea robots, lasers, and artificial intelligence have been combined into one dynamic solution that will change the methods of working underwater. The SeaVision® subsea 3D laser imaging system is used to perform high-resolution RGB laser line scanning.
