    1/6/2017

    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.

  2. Novel Lenses Enable X-Ray Microscopy With Record Resolution
    12/7/2017

    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.

  3. Innovation-Driving Research, Applications To Take Center Stage At SPIE Photonics West 2018
    10/21/2017

    Talks by two Nobel Laureates will be among more than 5,200 leading-edge technical presentations held alongside the premier global photonics and laser exhibition, seminars, and training courses at SPIE Photonics West 2018 in San Francisco, California.

  4. Wide Angle, VIS To SWIR Sensor And Scanner Window Solutions
    1/24/2017

    ZC&R Coatings for Optics (ZC&R), a division of Abrisa Technologies, now offers high throughput efficiency Wide Angle, Broad Spectrum Sensor and Laser Scanning Window solutions for the visible 425-675nm (VIS), visible to near infra-red 425-1050nm (VIS-NIR), short wave infrared 700-1800nm (SWIR) and popular laser and LED wavelengths from 405 to 1550nm. Designed for image sensors and scanners these optics are used in industrial 3D metrology, machine vision, automotive obstacle avoidance, security and surveillance, document scanners, 3D scanning, gesture recognition and other digital imaging applications.

  5. High-Power Laser Mirrors Reflect Three Wavelengths
    2/10/2017

    LASER COMPONENTS developed a new coating process for so-called triple mirrors that makes it possible to apply this complex layer design in one pass. Coatings for three wavelengths used to have to be manufactured in two passes. The new method not only results in higher specifications, but it also has the additional advantage of a shorter duration of production.
