  1. Considerations For Specialized Fiber Optics In Rugged Environments
    2/1/2017

    At Photonics West 2017, Frank Weiss with Gooch & Housego 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.

  2. An Intro To Advanced Hyperspectral Imaging
    4/21/2016

    Hyperspectral imaging technology has advanced significantly in the last 50 years, and Greg Staples with Bayspec talked with us for a few minutes at the 2016 SPIE DCS exhibition about how it has changed.

  3. InGaAs Linear Arrays Relaunched
    2/18/2016

    Doug Malchow with Sensors Unlimited — UTC Aerospace Systems discusses the relaunch of his company's InGaAs linear arrays, provides an update on the export classifications of a 320x256 SWIR camera, and shares a quick refresher on their standard suite of SWIR cameras.

  4. Diverse Catalog Of Aerospace And Defense Solutions
    4/22/2015

    Craig Taylor with Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies Company spent some time with us on day two of the DSS exhibition to give us an overview of some of his division’s work in optical modules and systems used in the aerospace and defense markets. He then turns it over to Eric Desfonds with Excelitas so he could catch us up on some of their more recent product developments, including their newly launched N-type quadrant detectors.

  5. You Asked, They Delivered
    4/21/2015

    Applications engineer Curt Dvonch took time out of day one of the DSS exhibition to give us a closer look (it’s small, you may have to squint) at the new 320CSX Micro SWIR camera and walked us through some of its more notable features.

  6. Optical Filter And Coating Solutions
    4/21/2015

    Jason Palidwar of Iridian Spectral kicked off our DSS exhibition coverage by giving us a closer look at what they’re showcasing this year.

  7. 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.

  8. A Suite Of SWIR Technology
    2/9/2015

    Doug Malchow with Sensors Unlimited Inc., a UTC Aerospace Systems company, kicks off our BiOS and Photonics West video coverage by showing us some SWIR imagery and telling us about some new and exciting developments to their line of cameras.

  9. Lowering Dark Current, Defects, And Bad Pixel Counts In Imaging Detectors
    9/25/2014

    Sensors Unlimited — UTC Aerospace Systems cut the ribbon on their new facility on September 17th, 2014. Doug Malchow spent a few minutes with us explaining how the move to a bigger and better place has already resulted in better quality imaging detectors with lower defects, lower bad pixel counts, and much lower dark current.

  10. Mil-Rugged 0.9 MP SWIR Camera For Low-Light Applications
    8/20/2014

    In this video, Doug Malchow with Sensors Unlimited discusses the suite of cameras they had on display at Optics and Photonics 2014. He pays close attention to the GA1280JSX — a mil-rugged, high-resolution SWIR camera ideal for low-light level imaging, persistent surveillance, laser detection, and imaging through atmospheric obscurants.
