LENSES WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES
New Metalens Helps Produce High-Resolution Images With Wide Field Of View
At the University of São Paulo's São Carlos School of Engineering (EESC-USP), Brazil, scientists have designed a lens that is a thousand times thinner when compared to a strand of human hair.
Researchers Develop Flat Lens A Thousand Times Thinner Than A Hair
A lens a thousand times thinner than a hair was developed by researchers at the São Carlos School of Engineering at the University of São Paulo (EESC-USP). The piece can be used as a photographic lens on smartphones or used in other devices that depend on sensors.

Seeing Is Believing: VR/AR Headset Demos At SPIE Photonics West 2018
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 Develops Lens-Free, Point-Of-Care System For Diagnosing Spinal Meningitis
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.
Creating AFM Resonant Probes Using Shattered Silicon
Resonant probes for atomic force microscopy (AFM) can be created using shattered silicon wafers. This video describes how to create silicon shards and then attach them to a quartz tuning fork for use in an AFM.
Creating Tungsten Tips For Atomic Force Microscopy Using Mad City Labs SPM Etch Kit
This video describes how to use Mad City Labs SPM Etch kit to produce tungsten tips for atomic force microscopy (AFM). The tungsten tips are attached to quartz tuning forks for use in a resonant probe AFM.
Creating A Diving Bell For An AFM Resonant Probe
This video describes how to implement a diving bell concept for imaging samples in liquid using a resonant probe AFM. A MadPLL phase lock loop controller and an AFM diving bell kit are used from Mad City Labs.
Ophir's Long-Range MWIR 45-900 mm f/4 – Thermal Imaging Demo Video
The SupIR 45-900 mm f/4 delivers superb image quality and accurate line of sight (LOS) for long-range security and surveillance applications, with up to 24.7 km detection range. Designed for 20 µm or 15 µm VGA format cameras, as well as for 10 µm HD format. The lens is based on the legacy SupIR 15-300 mm MWIR f/4 zoom lens with its proven track-record of thousands of units operating in the field and its ruggedized design. Integrated in Sierra-Olympic's VGA MWIR Ventus-900 thermal core.
Integra 2nd Gen Introduction
The second generation of the INTEGRA is a meterless line of all-in-one detectors that combine a detector and a meter in one device that lugs directly into your PC. Each detector of the INTEGRA series offers the same incredible performance as the usual detector and meter combination, from pW to kW and from fJ to J. For a brief introduction on this product, watch the video.
Beamage Camera Introduction
The BEAMAGE-4M is a beam profiling camera designed for accurate profile measurements of very small beams. The camera utilizes a USB 3.0 for the transfer rates up to 10X faster than regular USB 2.0 connections. Check out the video for a brief introduction.
Pronto Si Demo Video
The PRONTO-SI is a portable photodiode-based laser power meter designed for up to 800 mW that is so compact it fits in your pocket. Check out the video for a demonstration on this device.
