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.

Lisa Gerbracht at FLIR gives a brief introduction to showcased products, information on available imaging technologies, and an overview of FLIR’s specialized divisions.
Sukegawa Takashi from Canon USA, Inc. Optoelectronic Components introduces the new Canon Immersion Grating. With a size that is 1/27th of typical spectroscopy devices and the ability to cover infrared frequencies from 1 to 20 micrometers, this immersion grating is ideal for astronomy, satellites, and large ground-based telescope applications.
Dr. Scott Metzler from PCO introduces the pco.edge 4.2 bi back illuminated camera sensor with high resolution and a 6.5 x 6.5 μm² pixel size for high-quality images with quantum efficiency up to 95%. This next-generation camera offers an extremely versatile solution for all of your microscopy needs.
On our last day here at Photonics West 2019, Dr. Scott Metzler from PCO presents the enhanced capabilities that bi sCMOS sensors have to offer, including up to 95% quantum efficiency and a broader spectral response than previous generation. Check out the video for more information.
Christian Dini from Ophir Photonics introduces the updated version of their beam profiling and beam propagation measurement system.
In this video, John McCauley from Ophir Photonics walks through a brief tutorial on beam propagation analysis for high powered lasers with the BeamWatch system.
