Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies Company and global technology leader in delivering innovative optical and photonic solutions, introduces its new LINOS F-Theta-Ronar 265mm Lens for 1900-2000nm.
Autonomous mobility’s progress has been achieved in fits and starts, though the past few years have seen accelerated development in its enabling technologies.
It’s safe to say that, whatever the expectations happened to be for last Monday’s altered reality/virtual reality headset demos at SPIE Photonics West, the event's reality surpassed them.
Leti, a research institute at CEA Tech, has invented a lens-free microscope technology that provides point-of-care diagnosis for spinal meningitis. Outlined in a paper presented at Photonics West, the new technology provides immediate results and eliminates errors in counting white blood cells (leukocytes) in cerebrospinal fluid, which is required to diagnose the infection.
Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR, a super-telephoto zoom lens with a built-in 1.4x teleconverter and compatible with Nikon FX-format digital SLR cameras.
Scientists at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have built the first single lens that can focus the entire visible spectrum of light. The breakthrough means bulky stacked lenses could soon be replaced with simpler, flat metalenses — without loss of resolution.
Scientists have developed novel lenses that enable X-ray microscopy with record resolution in the nanometre regime. Using new materials, the research team led by DESY scientist Saša Bajt from the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) has perfected the design of specialised X-ray optics and achieved a focus spot size with a diameter of less than ten nanometres.
FLIR thermal sensors can be used for the detection and classification of pedestrians in ADAS and self-driving cars, making them safer and less costly.
Zygo’s precision optics solutions such as high-quality mirrors, space-based lens assemblies, and other reconnaissance systems, have enabled high-performance solutions for defense and aerospace application.
In regards to the research market, Zygo focuses on solving their own internal problems through R&D instead of relying on outside research organizations. With their expertise and connections with the research community, the company is able to understand research needs and ensure that products will work in experiments and instrumentation the first time.
The semiconductor market is focused on creating billions of products for consumption. Semiconductor companies turn to Zygo Corporation for their robust processes and constant solutions.
High-speed thermal imaging is vital to many research programs, as is having a robust method for recording and sharing the data. In this video, FLIR introduces the Portable High-Speed Data Recorder (pHSDR) and demonstrates how it can resolve some of the traditional performance limitations that arise from recording straight to a computer hard drive.
SCHOTT is the ideal partner for customers in optical diagnostics due to a wide range of products and services using pristine materials with advanced application experience.
