The Power Of Piezo Transducers: Enabling Progress In Life Sciences, Semicon & Electronics Markets
Transducers are electro-mechanical devices that convert electrical energy to mechanical energy or vice versa. A well known and widely used transducer is the so-called "voice coil" transducer that is based on electromagnetic principles and finds applications in speakers and sub-woofers.
Considerations For Specialized Fiber Optics In Rugged Environments
At Photonics West 2017, Frank Weiss with G&H offered practical advice on considerations one should take into account when specifying fiber optics for deployment in rugged environments, including life cycle requirements, the pitfalls of underspecifying, and the potential headaches that can be involved in not paying close attention to export control parameters.
Car Safety Testing Using the pco.dimax cs Camera
The pco.dimax cs camera with its true 12-bit performance is ideal for providing crisp, brilliant color images for all car safety testing applications involving onboard, offboard, and sled testing. This high speed video presents car safety testing situations recorded with the pco.dimax cs camera.
Surface Measurements In The Most Challenging Environments
In this video, one of Zygo’s applications engineers provides a demonstration of the ZeGageTM 3D optical surface profiler as it measures the roughness of the surface of a sealing valve used in the automotive industry. That might sounds fairly unremarkable, but check out how the system does on a rickety plastic table in a machine shop full of noise and vibration.
Buzz At Umicore Booth Over New Catalog Lenses
John Franks of Umicore tells about the lenses the company provides for applications involving automotive night vision, defense, security and surveillance, thermography, and personal thermal vision. He also shares some exciting news about new catalog lenses that are currently available.
Two New Cameras For High-Speed Imaging Applications
Photron has launched two new cameras over the last few months: the FASTCAM SA-Z and the Mini UX100. North American sales manager Tim Callenbach tells us about them and their role in applications involving ballistics, off-board automotive testing, shockwaves, broadcasting, fluidics, welding, materials science, plasma and arc studies, and more.
Vision Components -- A Smart Idea
