TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT SPIE PHOTONICS WEST 2017

The World’s Fastest 640 x 512 Resolution IR Camera: FLIR X6900sc
The World’s Fastest 640 x 512 Resolution IR Camera: FLIR X6900sc

FLIR offers the FLIR X6900sc: the world’s fastest 640 x 512 resolution thermal camera for high-speed science applications. This thermal imager is designed to record 1000 fps at full resolution onto the camera RAM for up to 26 seconds.

  • Linear Variable VIS NIR Bandpass Filters For Hyperspectral Imaging
    Linear Variable VIS NIR Bandpass Filters For Hyperspectral Imaging

    Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is used for many applications including satellite imaging and air reconnaissance. HSI is usually executed with bulky hyperspectral-imaging cameras that are sensitive to misalignment, very expensive, and use prisms or gratings as dispersive elements. An alternative method of HSI is the combination of linear variable bandpass filters (LVBPFs) with silicon detectors. This allows for very compact, robust, and affordable HSI detectors that offer several advantages over conventional approaches.

  • Compact, All-In-One LED Luminaire Measurement System: FluxGage
    Compact, All-In-One LED Luminaire Measurement System: FluxGage

    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.

  • High-Resolution Laser Spectrum Analyzer: 771 Series
    High-Resolution Laser Spectrum Analyzer: 771 Series

    Bristol Instruments’ model 771 is a high-resolution laser spectrum analyzer that measures the spectral characteristics of CW and high-repetition rate pulsed lasers that operate from 375 nm to 12 μm. Laser wavelength is measured to +/- 0.0001 nm and spectral resolution is as high as 2 GHz.

  • Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs) With Enhanced NIR Sensitivity To 950 nm: Series 9.5
    Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs) With Enhanced NIR Sensitivity To 950 nm: Series 9.5

    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.

  • HD Format Digital SWIR InGaAs Camera: OWL 1280
    HD Format Digital SWIR InGaAs Camera: OWL 1280

    The OWL 1280 from Raptor Photonics is a digital short-wave infrared (SWIR) InGaAs camera in HD format, ideal for surveillance and scientific imaging applications including range finding, vision enhancement, astronomy, and hyperspectral imaging. The camera utilizes a 1280 x 1280 sensor for SCD that offers visible extension from 0.4 µm to 1.7 µm, and 10 µm x 10 µm pixel pitch for the highest resolution imaging.

  • Nexview™ 3D Optical Surface Profiler
    Nexview™ 3D Optical Surface Profiler

    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.
