TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT SPIE PHOTONICS WEST 2017

Imaging Color Filters
Imaging Color Filters

Iridian Spectral Technologies has designed and manufactured a wide range of dielectric optical filters for imaging and machine vision applications. Featuring steep edges, high transmission values, and high durability, these color filters can be used to improve contrasts, and isolate spectral regions and colors in images.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Digital Encoder Galvano Scanner: GM-1000 Series
    Digital Encoder Galvano Scanner: GM-1000 Series

    The GM-1000 series of digital encoder galvano scanners is comprised of four different models with variations in beam diameter, scan angles, small step response, and resolution. Each model has a compact physical profile, super low thermal drift, and extreme high resolution, precision, and accuracy.

  • 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.

  • Laser Line Mirrors
    Laser Line Mirrors

    Optics Balzers has successfully developed and tested a special dielectric layer system with PARMS coating technology, making it possible to manufacture 45°-HR mirrors for 1030nm applications with an established destruction threshold of 0.44J/cm² at 210fs. These mirrors are typically used in ultra-short pulsed systems of Yb:YAG solid-state lasers.
