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.
Niko Announces $12k Telephoto Lens At CES 2018
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.
Harvard-Produced Metalens Is “Next Big Step” In Optics, Virtual Reality
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.
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.
