  1. Article: NIR Trends: The Growing Impact Of Light
    7/24/2008
    The interaction between an electromagnetic wave and a material can tell us a great deal about the chemistry and physical makeup of the material in question. We are all familiar with this interaction — for example, visible light in electromagnetic wavelengths reflects off plant leaves and enters our eye as green light, due to absorption of other wavelengths by the dominant photosynthesis chemical, chlorophyll. Fewer people, however, are aware that wavelengths in the infrared (IR) bands are also being used for product quality control and the detection of health problems.
  2. Non-Invasive Biomedical Imaging With FD-OCT
    6/16/2008
    Current medical practice poses a constant demand for development of non-contact, minimally invasive imaging techniques that can be used in clinics and hospitals for early diagnostics of various diseases and as an alternative to standard excisional biopsy.
  3. White Paper: Non-Invasive Biomedical Imaging With FD-OCT
    6/16/2008
    Current medical practice poses a constant demand for development of non-contact, minimally invasive imaging techniques that can be used in clinics and hospitals for early diagnostics of various diseases and as an alternative to standard excisional biopsy. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is a relatively novel imaging method that allows for non-invasive, cross-sectional imaging of the biological tissue structure with cellular level resolution and at depths of up to 1.5–2 mm below the surface.
  4. Article: The Development of High Speed, Extended Wavelength Response InGaAs Detectors For NIR Spectroscopy And Machine Vision
    6/5/2008
    The spectroscopy and machine vision markets have been searching for a low-cost short-wave infrared (SWIR) detector that is capable of achieving high sensitivity with high speed in the most demanding applications. Before the recent release of Sensors Unlimited’s LC read out integrated circuit (ROIC), the only option that met this need was a high-cost detector requiring cryogenic cooling. These measurements can now be made with a cost-effective TE-cooled detector designed with performance-enhancing electronics that has one mode for longer integration times with lower noise and another mode for high-speed, high-gain measurements.

    3/12/2008
    InGaAs linear detector arrays help improve medical diagnostics, maximize and speed up machine vision applications
  7. Imaging In The Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) Spectrum Helps Track And Detect Lasers On The Battlefield
    2/21/2008
    As warfare becomes more asymmetric, civilians and other non-combatants become a larger percentage of the casualties, along with unintended property damage. The military, of course, hopes to avoid these types of casualties and destruction. With advancing technologies that enable more precision from their weapons, they also need better pointing and targeting capabilities, while remaining covert
