Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies Company and global technology leader in delivering innovative optical and photonic solutions, introduces its new telecentric UV LINOS 70mm F-Theta-Ronar Lenses for 340-360nm.
Scientists report that custom-manufactured corrective quartz glasses fitted to a standard lens can focus X-ray beams to an unparalleled concentration, approaching the theoretical limit.
Harvard engineers have built the first achromatic metalens (AML) that operates over a continual bandwidth of colors, from blue to green, through a technique called dispersion engineering and via an ultra thin array of nanopillars.
Invenios LLC, an advanced technology micro-fabrication foundry specializing in glass structuring, micro glass packaging and glass bonding is a world leader in providing consumables and devices for gene sequencing, bio-medical, sensor, electronic and optical applications announced recently that it has successfully completed the acquisition of Varioptic, previously a Business Unit of Parrot Drones SAS for an undisclosed amount.
Engineers at California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have successfully demonstrated how to stack metasurfaces to form flat optical lenses that can be mass-produced and integrated with electronics and image sensors.
Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies® Company, recently introduced the Fetura+™ Advanced Zoom Lens enabling high speed and reliable optical performance for the machine vision and inspection markets. Fetura+ features a unique linear rail design coupled with precision optics to enable it to travel through the 12.5:1 zoom range in less than one second. Due to this unique design, Fetura+ offers a service life in excess of one million cycles and delivers exacting repeatability in any orientation.
Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies® Company, recently introduces the new 1.73x Tube Lens as a widely desired addition to the mag.x system 125. Representing a new class of optical systems that enable microscope-like resolution with wide fields-of-view to support modern high-resolution sensors, the 1.73x Tube Lens makes the mag.x system 125 a perfect match for sensors with the 35 mm camera format.
Piezo nanopositioning stages offer high-resolution and scanning speed, making them useful for super-resolution microscopy and optical trapping. The P-563 PIMars XYZ-Stages are designed with a parallel-kinematics arrangement with higher precision and responsiveness compared to nested or stacked multi-axis positioners.
Telops offers a variety of high-performance scientific instruments to meet the most demanding research applications. The MS-IR Series of time-resolved, multispectral imagers are able to combine measurements obtained with various attenuation filters to achieve a composite HDR image that shows hot and cold objects at the same time.
Flexible endoscopes are used in medical procedures where the scope cannot bend. This animation from SCHOTT demonstrates the transmission of light and data through external and internal rigid fiber optic light cables in endoscopy.
Flexible endoscopes are used in medical procedures where the scope must be bent inside the body. This animation from SCHOTT demonstrates the transmission of light and data through external and internal flexible fiber optic light cables in endoscopy.
This video shows the principle of photoluminescence in the time domain (pulsed excitation) and in the frequency domain (continuous, modulated excitation) using the pco.flim – a specialized camera for luminescence lifetime measurements in the frequency domain. The corresponding waveforms of light, shaped and delayed by a reflective target and a photoluminescent sample, are visualized.
There are unique challenges involved in bringing infrared cameras up to the high-definition standards we’ve all grown accustomed to for cameras in the visible range. Chris Johnston with Sierra-Olympic Technologies spent a few minutes at DCS 2017 to speak about these challenges.
Vince Morton with Telops gives an update on what’s new for Telops’ product lines, and shows a demonstration of an advanced high-speed multispectral filtering application.
