  1. Novel Lenses Enable X-Ray Microscopy With Record Resolution

    Scientists have developed novel lenses that enable X-ray microscopy with record resolution in the nanometre regime. Using new materials, the research team led by DESY scientist Saša Bajt from the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) has perfected the design of specialised X-ray optics and achieved a focus spot size with a diameter of less than ten nanometres.

  2. Qioptiq Introduces Rodenstock HR Digaron Macro 5.6/105 Digital Lens

    Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies Company and global technology leader in delivering innovative optical and photonic solutions, introduces its new Rodenstock HR Digaron Macro 5.6/105 Digital Lens for professional photography.

  3. Optical Phased Array Technology Could Make Lens-Based Cameras Obsolete

    Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed a 2D ultra-thin camera that uses an optical phased array (OPA), rather than the curved lenses and mechanical parts of a traditional camera, to capture images.

  4. New Virtual Reality Display Uses Optical Mapping To Ease Eye Fatigue

    A new type of 3D display being developed by researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign could pave the way for augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) headsets that do not cause headaches, nausea and eye fatigue symptoms commonly reported by users.

  5. Qioptiq Introduces New UV LINOS F-Theta-Ronar Lens For 340-360nm

    Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies Company and global technology leader in delivering innovative optical and photonic solutions, introduces its new telecentric UV LINOS 70mm F-Theta-Ronar Lenses for 340-360nm.

  6. Varioptic Launches A New 3.8mm Auto Focus S-Mount Lens

    Varioptic - Invenios France SAS, announces the release of a new Caspian S-Mount lens, the Caspian S-25H0-038 with 3.8 mm focal length.

  7. Corrective Quartz Lens Achieves Unparalleled X-Ray Laser Focus

    Scientists report that custom-manufactured corrective quartz glasses fitted to a standard lens can focus X-ray beams to an unparalleled concentration, approaching the theoretical limit.

  8. World's First Flat Lens Focusing On Continual Bandwidth Of Colors

    Harvard engineers have built the first achromatic metalens (AML) that operates over a continual bandwidth of colors, from blue to green, through a technique called dispersion engineering and via an ultra thin array of nanopillars.

  9. Invenios Acquires Varioptic, Liquid Lens Technology

    Invenios LLC, an advanced technology micro-fabrication foundry specializing in glass structuring, micro glass packaging and glass bonding is a world leader in providing consumables and devices for gene sequencing, bio-medical, sensor, electronic and optical applications announced recently that it has successfully completed the acquisition of Varioptic, previously a Business Unit of Parrot Drones SAS for an undisclosed amount.

  10. Making Flat Optical Lenses By Stacking Metasurfaces

    Engineers at California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have successfully demonstrated how to stack metasurfaces to form flat optical lenses that can be mass-produced and integrated with electronics and image sensors.
