  1. Optical Components for SWIR Imaging
    7/5/2016

    This application note provides information on the benefits of SWIR imaging in harsh or low-light level conditions, and PG&O's capabilities in manufacturing optical components for SWIR imaging.

  2. Urban Heat Island Characterization With Airborne Thermal Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging
    11/19/2015

    . This application note discusses how to efficiently characterize urban heat islands using airborne TIR hyperspectral imaging, and to better understand their relationship with man-made materials.

  3. Standoff Midwave Infrared Hyperspectral Imaging Of Ship Plumes
    8/5/2015

    Characterization of ship plumes is very challenging due to the great variety of ships, fuel, and fuel grades, as well as the extent of a gas plume. In this work, imaging of ship plumes from an operating ferry boat was carried out using standoff midwave (3-5 m) infrared hyperspectral imaging. Quantitative chemical imaging of combustion gases was achieved by fitting a radiative transfer model. Combustion efficiency maps and mass flow rates are presented for carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2). The results illustrate how valuable information about the combustion process of a ship engine can be successfully obtained using passive hyperspectral remote sensing imaging.

    This case study describes a study on material deformation using the high-speed camera FASTCAM SA4.

  5. 3D Printing Technologies For Prototyping And Production
    5/8/2015

    Today’s products are designed to be manufactured in thousands or hundreds of thousands, and both parts and assembled products can be built and tested throughout the development process.

  6. Clear The Air: New Optical Filters For Sensors And Detectors
    4/2/2015

    Environmental air quality; proximity control; crowd counting; climate change; the “Internet of Things”.  Our world has become an increasingly monitored place where the proliferation of sensors and detectors allows us, and our devices, to better understand and interact with our environments.  

  7. Designing A New Optical Projection Device For Military Pilots
    3/25/2015

    When the Department of Defense decided its landscape flight simulators to train pilots required too large a display, too large an enclosure space, and felt a bit antiquated in general, the DoD looked for a helmet –mounted simulation solution to replace the traditional rear-projection screens they were using.

  8. Using Thermal Imaging For Companion Diagnostics
    1/14/2015

    This application note describes how researchers from the clinical research center of Charité Berlin use a thermal imaging camera from FLIR to analyze and objectify the body’s response to various allergens and evaluate how antihistamines can modulate the development of symptoms.

  9. Utilizing Inkjet Coating Technology For Optics And Injection Molded Parts
    11/5/2014

    This case study explains how Carclo developed an inexpensive, one-sided, anti-scratch coating resistant to UV light, abrasion, solvents, and chemicals that could be applied to a customer’s optics without having a negative impact on its optical properties.

  10. How To Assess Thermal Camera Range For Site Design
    10/17/2014

    When laying out a site design for surveillance using currently marketed uncooled thermal cameras, it is important to understand the coverage capability of the cameras under evaluation in terms of field of view and range.
