Sensors & Detectors Videos

  1. Achieving HD, Full Color Video In Low Light

    On the last day of SPIE’s 2016 DCS exhibition in Baltimore, Kevin Fogarty with Canon showed us a 19 micron pixel pitch sensor that can achieve a full color and high definition image in extremely low light environments.

  2. How To Specify Optical Coatings For Sensor Applications

    This year at SPIE’s DCS exhibition, Donna with DSI gave us a quick on-location hello from the show floor before turning it over to principle investigator Kevin Gibbons so that he could offer some advice on what you should consider before determining an optical coating’s specifications for sensing applications.

  3. Multi-Spectral Imaging And Sensing

    Marco Snikkers wrapped up our Photonics West 2016 coverage by introducing us to a pixel sensor that acts as an 8-channel spectrometer for biomedical, fluorescence marking, and colorimeter applications, as well as a multi-spectral camera that can monitor specific wavelengths in real-time.

  4. Lowering Dark Current, Defects, And Bad Pixel Counts In Imaging Detectors

    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.

  5. Sensors For A Diverse Range Of Applications

    Jeff Eng, applications engineer with Hamamatsu, shows us a MEMS FTIR engine for IR spectroscopy instruments that works in applications involving gas sensing, materials analysis, and point of care devices. He also introduces us to 2D InGaAs image sensors for thermal imaging monitors, NIR image detection, and foreign object detection; compact radiation detectors; and more.

  6. 12 Micron Camera Core And Silicon PIN Quadrant Detector For Sensing Applications

    Excelitas and Qioptiq have joined together to provide custom optics manufacturing and a wide array of sensor offerings for various applications.

  7. New Detector For Beam Position Monitoring, UV Scanners, And Inspection Tools

    Opto Diode’s national sales manager Stan Duda kept us up to date on some new developments at Opto Diode. Watch the video to learn more about a new EUV compatible position sensing detector covering the 0.1 nm to 400 nm spectral range.

  8. Sensors Unlimited Takes Other InGaAs Technology Companies To School

    Doug Malchow with Sensors Unlimited, Inc. - UTC Aerospace Systems, gives us a closer look the world’s most sensitive InGaAs camera, and the world’s most sensitive megapixel high definition InGaAs camera.

  9. New SWIR Detector Set For Space Launch

    Raf Vandermissen, CEO of sInfraRed (a Xenics company) introduces us to the Xlin 1.7-3000 line-scan SWIR detector.

  10. Nova Sensors Cameras: From Surveillance To Microscopy

    Tony Vengel, VP of business development for Nova Sensors, gives some background of his company and their cameras covering the full electromagnetic spectrum under their parent company, Teledyne Technologies.
