  1. Achieving HD, Full Color Video In Low Light
    4/21/2016

    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
    4/20/2016

    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
    2/23/2016

    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. First Sensor Extends Products And Capabilities Offerings
    2/10/2015

    First Sensor’s Paul Sharman took time out of a busy day one of the exhibition to catch us up on some recent product releases.

  5. Lowering Dark Current, Defects, And Bad Pixel Counts In Imaging Detectors
    9/25/2014

    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.

  6. Sensors For A Diverse Range Of Applications
    5/7/2014

    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.

    2/10/2014

    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.

  9. 360 Degree Scanner In Google Car Aided By 32 Element Array
    2/10/2014

    Paul Sharman, First Sensor vice president of sales and marketing, walked us through the booth to point out some of the more notable displays, and gave us an examples of a real world application in which his company’s products are being used. 

  10. Sensors Unlimited Takes Other InGaAs Technology Companies To School
    2/4/2014

    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.
