Photonics West Videos

  1. New 25mm SWIR Lens With High Spectral Transparency
    2/16/2016

    Gooch and Housego’s Jonathan Ironside-Smith and Andrezj Sosna took some time out of day one of the Photonics West 2016 exhibition to introduce us to the Barle 25mm SWIR lens.

  2. Stop-Motion Infrared Imaging On Fast Moving Targets
    2/16/2016

    Chris Bainter with FLIR gives us an up-close look at the world’s fastest full 640x512 infrared camera commercially available, providing full resolution at up to 1000 frames-per-second.

  3. Transparent Sample Characterization
    2/17/2015

    Edmund Optics recently developed their own in-house solution to verify optical coatings, and the result was the DIC microscope. At Photonics West 2015, Stefaan Vandendriessche met with us to give us the story on how the microscope came to be, and what it can do. This interesting perspective gives their “What Can We Make For You” slogan some serious legs.

  4. Trends In Microelectronics and Interactive Electro-Optic Devices
    2/17/2015

    Lisa Tsufura with Abrisa Technologies spent some time with Photonics Online on the last day of the show to catch us up to speed on some trends her company has observed in regards to microelectronics and interactive electro-optic devices, and the role Abrisa can play in said marketplaces.

  5. UVC LEDs for Analytical And Life Sciences Instrumentation
    2/17/2015

    On day three of the Photonics West exhibition, Hari Venugopalan introduced us to his company’s Optan UVC LEDs. Watch the video to learn how their industry leading light output, superior light output maintenance, and excellent spectral quality can improve your analytical instrumentation used in water and wastewater monitoring, ozone monitoring, HPLC detectors, protein research, and fluorescence imaging.

  6. A New Paradigm In FT-IR Spectroscopy
    2/13/2015

    Si-Ware Systems drew a lot of positive attention at Photonics West 2015 with their Prism award winning MEMS spectral sensors. Bassam Saadany and Mostafa Medhat met with Photonics Online on the last day of the show so we could get a glimpse of the sensors in person and see them in action. If you’re looking to replace your standard bench top FT-IR spectrometer with something much smaller and much less expensive, then this video is most certainly for you.

  7. Optimize Your Laser Processes
    2/13/2015

    On the third and final day of the Photonics West 2015 exhibition, John McCauley with Ophir Photonics gave us a quick tutorial on their laser performance measurement equipment   and how it can be used to help OEMs and system integrators optimize their laser processes while ensuring quality and consistency over time.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.
