Optical Components White Papers & Application Notes

  1. Miniaturize Your Optical System Into A Photonic Integrated Circuit
    3/5/2018

    Embedding photonic functionalities into an integrated optical chip can often simplify and reduce the size of a system. This white paper introduces the basic concepts of photonic integration with a goal to help the reader understand how it can improve optical systems.

  2. Thin-Film Optical Components For Use In Non-Linear Optical Systems
    11/16/2017

    Bio-imaging and detection techniques that use non-linear optical (NLO) phenomena have led to great advancements, such as super-resolution images, label-free visualization of naturally occurring biomolecules, and greater freedom for working with in-vivo samples. This white paper discusses the importance of choosing thin-film optical components for NLO systems to ensure optimal signal strength, resolution, and image quality.

  3. Large-Format, Narrow Band Pass Filters (NBPF) – A Uniformity Challenge
    1/27/2017

    Within so many diverse optical filtering applications, large-format (>100 mm diameter), narrow bandpass filters (NBPF) are required to be used alongside large collection optics in order to facilitate specific and selective analysis of a phenomena or the substance of interest.
