Photonics West Videos

  1. Laser Damage Threshold Coatings, Conformal Coatings, And Photo-Pattern Coatings
    2/13/2015

    Kevin Gibbons with Deposition Sciences, Inc. (DSI) gave us a quick rundown of what was on display for them at Photonics West in 2015. Check out the video for an up close look at some of their laser damage threshold coatings for complex shapes, as well as some examples of their photo-pattern coatings for use in optical applications for multi-spectral filters, and metallic coatings for soldering and hermetic sealing.

  2. The Best SWIR Camera In The World? Watch And Decide For Yourself
    2/13/2015

    At Photonics West 2015, Mark Donaghy concentrated on just two entries in Rapto Photonics' comprehensive line of scientific cameras – The Eagle V CCD camera for astronomy, bioluminescence, fluorescence imaging, and more, as well as the NINOX SWIR 640 for beam profiling, solar cell inspection, microscopy, semiconductor inspection, and more. Watch the video to learn why Raptor still believes they have the best performing SWIR camera on the market today.

  3. The Little Train That Couldn’t Derail
    2/13/2015

    Renee Dulfer spent some of day two of the exhibition with us giving us an overview of Opto Diode’s recent product expansion via of 2014 merger with CalSensors, but the real fun began when she walked us through their in-booth demonstration. For a better look on how their detectors are used in real world applications, check it out.

  4. Do More In Small Spaces
    2/13/2015

    Aaron Johnson with Accumold met with us on the last day of Photonics West 2015 to talk about his company’s micro optics capabilities and how they can be used in light management, micro sensing, personal devices, endoscopic/catheter-based deployment devices, and more. Ring in the International Year Of Light and watch the video to learn more about how their high-precision injection molding services can be used in your next design.

  5. Bring On Your Most Challenging Micro-Optical Needs
    2/13/2015

    Precision Optics Corporations’ Richard Cyr met with us at the Photonics West 2015 exhibition to talk to us about the micro-precision optical components his company provides. This ranges from micro-prisms, micro-precision lenses and lens systems, and more. Watch the video for specifics on just how small some of these parts can get.

  6. You Can Still Buy American
    2/12/2015

    At Photonics West this year, Dan Bukaty Jr. with Precision Glass & Optics (PG&O) spoke with us about the misconception of Asian manufacturers being both faster and less expensive than their American counterparts. If you’re looking for plain or coated optics or high-volume scribing technology from a U.S. based manufacturer, look no further.

  7. Integrated 3X Continuous Zoom Optic In A Thermal Imaging Camera
    2/12/2015

    Chris Johnston with Sierra-Olympic took time out of day two of the exhibition to show us the Vinden CZ. If you work in the security and surveillance space or have a project that requires thermal imaging with advanced continuous zoom capabilities, watch the video to see if its features and specifications match your needs.

  8. Two New High Speed Cameras
    2/12/2015

    Photron launched two new high speed imaging solutions for slow motion analysis at Photonics West 2015. Andrew Bridges broke down both of the camera’s features and specifications for us this year. Watch the video to see if they can provide you with a solution for your next slow motion analysis application.

  9. Any Waveband, Any Application
    2/12/2015

    FLIR had four brand new IR cameras on display at Photonics West this year. Whether you’re a current customer or have only considered them in the past, they likely have a thermal imaging solution for any application you can come up with (and in some cases, for 30% less of the cost of previous models). Don’t take our word for it though. Check out the video as Eric Hughes walks us through the specifications and features of these new infrared cameras.

  10. New MLWIR Bandpass And Multi-Zone Optical Filters
    2/12/2015

    Iridian Spectral has been busy expanding its product offerings, and Hongbai Lao was kind enough to show us what the company was featuring at the show.
