OptoSigma offers a wide range of application systems that includes microscope units, alignment systems, interferometers, bio-photonics, and laser processing systems. These application systems are designed for many specific applications including polarization measurements, vacuum and oven measurements, and glass and film inspections.
The Nexview™ 3D optical profiler microscope stands out amongst competitive products by its ability to measure the topography of virtually any surface, irrespective of roughness, large steps and segments, thin films, steep slopes, with feature heights ranging from < 1 nm up to 20000 µm. It does all this in 3D, without contact, and provides the best qualities of other profiling technologies (stylus, confocal, focus scanning) without their limitations.
Optics Blazers manufactures Near-Eye Display combiners and other components for optimized display performance and see-through properties. With an integrated manufacturing chain, this company can deliver single reflective surface, multiple reflective surface, free-form, or diffractive combiners. Optics Blazers’ solutions are developed with cost and scalability in mind to serve the competitive consumer electronics market.
First Sensor’s Series 9.5 Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs) are designed with enhanced NIR sensitivity to 950 nm, providing fundamental technology for the development of custom-designed solutions such as different geometries, packages, and arrays.
The FluxGage is Ophir’s new compact measuring system for LED Luminaires that measures their total flux, color (CCT, CRI, Duv, chromaticity), and flicker. The system measures the total flux using solar panels instead of an integrating sphere, delivering the same functionality in one third of the size. The gauge is capable of measuring any luminaire that fits into its opening.
Iridian Spectral Technologies has developed filters and coatings for many satellites and low-earth orbit instrumentation for both terrestrial and stellar observation. This includes large format filters for astronomical observations (single band and multi-band pass filters), light absorbers/black coatings, dichroic mirrors and beam-splitters, and multi-element arrays.
HOYA’s color filter glass products include sharp cut/long pass, light-balancing, color-compensating, neutral density, heat-absorbing, multi-band calibration, and UV Absorbing/VIS blocking filters for the UV through NIR regions. Featured is the new UL365S UV Band-Pass Filter that offers UV transmitting/VIS absorbing performance with high UV transmittance, while providing the highest resistance to any effects caused by UV solarization and/or exposure to high humidity conditions.
Martin Ettenberg, with Princeton Infrared, gave us a breakdown on when and why you should use shortwave infrared imaging, and what this technology’s role can be as it relates to machine vision applications.
This year at Photonics West, Dan Ford with the Ophir Photonics Group talked to us about the importance of achieving laser consistency.
Jeff Briton and Dragan Grubsic spoke to us about some of the challenges involved in operating pulsed laser diodes and avalanche photodiodes in LIDAR for the automotive and sensor markets.
At Photonics West 2017, Gene Nepomuceno with Vision Research spent a few minutes with us discussing the three main factors one should take into account before selecting a high speed camera – resolution, frame rate, and sensitivity (with an honorable mention for transferring the data off of the camera).
At Photonics West 2017, Greg Staples focused on selecting different wavelengths for specific applications. Watch the video for wavelength selection guidance for precision agriculture, food sorting, mining, pharmaceutical quality control, and more.
FLIR, the industry leader in thermal technology, release the X8500sc and the X6800sc. Get hands on with the world’s fastest HD camera and the world’s lowest cost high speed camera at Photonics West. See us at booth #2516 or visit FLIR.com/science.
