  1. Fiber Optic Image Bundles Provide A Solution When High Tech Approaches Fail
    7/16/2019

    Wound Fiber Bundles offer a passive way to transfer images from remote locations even when power isn’t available. The technology can be used in extreme environments and to view hard-to-access areas.

  2. Optical Components For SWIR Imaging
    7/8/2019

    This application note provides information on the benefits of SWIR imaging in harsh or low-light level conditions, and PG&O's capabilities in manufacturing optical components for SWIR imaging.

  3. SWIR For Hot-End Glass Bottle Defect Inspection And Imaging
    7/5/2019

    Manufacturers of glass hollowware have long sought a way to pick out defective product at the hot end of their process, while the pieces are still above 200ºC. At that glass inspection stage, rejects are identified, then shunted aside and reprocessed efficiently, greatly reducing scrap. 

     

  4. Introduction To Sensor And Scanner Window Solutions
    6/26/2019

    With growing applications in industrial 3D metrology, machine vision, automotive obstacle avoidance, security and security, and other digital imaging applications, the demand for optical and image sensors has also grown. Abrisa technologies offers sensor and scanning window solutions with a unique combination of performance coating design and volume glass fabrication.

  5. TESTD —The Telops Infrared Active Thermography Solutions
    6/24/2019

    Common 'intrusive' testing methods, while not technically destructive, are often messy, time-consuming, and render samples unusable for production. Non-contact testing and evaluation conducted via IR active thermography overcomes these hurdles.

  6. The Future Is Now: How Glass Micro Bonding Enables A New Era Of Ultra-Reliable Wafer Level Chip Scale Packaging
    6/20/2019

    Innovative Glass Micro Bonding sealing technology is enabling unprecedented miniaturization and wireless signal transmission for medical implants, MEMS devices, and other electronic and optical devices.

  7. Aerial Hyperspectral Imaging: OCI Hyperspectral Imagers
    6/18/2019

    BaySpec’s OCI-UAV hyperspectral imagers are designed for use on small UAVs to monitor the details of spatial, temporal, and spectral representation of ground objects. This app note discusses benefits of these imagers offer and delivers example images for multiple topography analysis.

  8. Using 1064 nm Dispersive Raman For Ink And Paint Classification
    6/18/2019

    Raman spectroscopy is a non-invasive, highly sensitive technology that quantitatively probes and analyzes chemical compositions and structures without the need for sample preparation. In the past, this technology was not useful for forensics because most "real-world" samples have a vivid color, which can be a background emission (fluorescence) that could overwhelm Raman signals in all visible wavelengths. This issue is now resolved by BaySpec’s line of 1064 nm excitation dispersive Raman systems that offer maximum reduction in fluorescence interference.

  9. Characterization And Transformation Monitoring Of Polymorphs Of D-Mannitol With Raman Spectroscopy
    6/18/2019

    Raman Spectroscopy is an ideal analysis technique for the analysis of these polymorphs with its vibrational spectroscopy, no need for sample preparation, and its non-destructive approach. 

  10. Using A Multi-Wavelength Confocal Raman Microscope For Non-destructive Pharmaceutical Ingredient Analysis
    6/18/2019

    Characterization of the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and its distribution and physical properties in commercial medicine is necessary in drug research and development. Raman spectroscopy is gaining popularity as nondestructive, non-invasive, fast spectrum acquisition, and high reproducibility.
