Image processing technology, particularly camera systems, plays a crucial role in automating food sorting by analyzing food products based on size, color, and quality criteria, enhancing efficiency and safety.


  • Color Temperature Adjustment Filters are versatile tools utilized in diverse lighting contexts to modify the spectral composition of light for purposes such as aesthetic enhancement or technical illumination.

  • DSI’s photolithography capability produces patterned thin film coatings (including bandpass filters, absorption coatings, and metals) on substrates up to 6 inches.

  • The extremely fast 1” C-Mount lenses with F0.95 maximum aperture are optimized for demanding low-light imaging applications.

  • ZC&R, a division of Abrisa Technologies, has over 20 years of design and volume manufacturing experience for high-performance thin film coating solutions for Night Vision Imaging Systems (NVIS) and Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible lighting and displays.

  • The Ophir SWIR & NIR 25-250mm f/5.5 (NFOV) f/4.0 (WFOV) is a continuous zoom lens that can be used in the 0.7-1.7 um SWIR regime. It is designed for 5μm, 10μm SXGA & 15μm VGA SWIR detectors and has a lightweight design weighing less than 860 grams.

  • The NBP 450-40 blue narrow bandpass has a peak wavelength of 450 nm,  making it ideal for use with blue lasers and LEDs.

  • Canon’s SR Series Ultra Miniature Optical Encoder is a highly miniaturized and high-resolution optical encoder ideal for applications involving linear/rotary motion and speed control.

  • Industry-leading high-performance, fully digital galvano scanning system from Canon. LED optical encoder (digital position sensor) with high speed digital servo controller brings high precision and high accuracy that surpasses all analog galvano scanners in the market.


  • Hexapods enhance confocal microscopy with precise 3D positioning, vibration damping, autofocusing, image stabilization, and large-scale scanning. They're ideal for complex imaging tasks in biological and materials science research, easily integrated with other imaging modalities, and user-friendly.

  • The use of night vision devices by the military first started in 1939. Numerous technological advances have been made since then, to the point we may soon see contact lenses provide the same advantages without the bulkiness of cumbersome headgear.

  • ​Spectroscopy has played a part in several recent discoveries over the past couple of months, from discovering new, exotic states of matter to revealing the invisible. Let’s take a look at seven of these breakthroughs that are in the news.

  • Abrisa Industrial Glass provides heat-resistant Borofloat Ultraviolet (UV) Blocking Filter Glass. This non-heat absorbing glass has excellent optical characteristics, including heat stability for consistent color balance, performance, and rugged durability.

  • Fifty years ago, LASER 73 brought together about 100 exhibitors to marvel at all photonics had to offer. Now, tens of thousands are flocking to Munich to attend LASER World of PHOTONICS, one of photonics’ leading trade fairs.

  • OSI Optoelectronics, a global leader in the design, development and manufacturing of high-performance standard and custom silicon and InGaAs photodetectors, announces a broad expansion of optoelectronic solutions.

  • ​The Advancing Photonics Technologies collaboration is one of more than 40 teams across the nation selected to receive one of the first-ever NSF Engines Development Awards, which provide up to two years of funding toward the planning of a multistate initiative to create economic, societal, and technological opportunities for their regions.

  • Abrisa Technologies now provides in-house, on-demand laser cutting of gasket and masking materials for flat glass optical components. This value-added, fast turn-cutting of high-performance gaskets provides increased supply chain simplicity.
