TECHNICAL ARTICLES

  • Bringing Fluorescence Images Into Full View With A Novel Hyperspectral Imager

    This article explores the use of a SnapShot imager in fluorescence imaging via microscope for the very first time. Utilizing the latest imaging sensor, the Snapshot imager is both compact and attachable via C-mount to any commercially available light microscope. Using this setup, fluorescence hypercubes of several cells were generated, containing both spatial and spectral information.  The fluorescence images were acquired with one shot operation for all the emission range from visible to near infrared (VIS-IR).  The paper will present the hypercubes obtained images from example tissues (475-630nm).  This study demonstrates the potential of application in cell biology or biomedical applications for real time monitoring.

  • Developing Silicon Photonics Technologies With A Wafer-Level Test Station

    Demand for I/O bandwidth has increased as logic chip compute power and memory chip storage capacity has grown. Silicon (SI) photonics is a promising technology for delivering a massive terabyte-per-second I/O aggregate bandwidth at the chip level, especially for applications requiring long interconnect distances. 

  • Capturing Fast-Moving Ferrofluids On The Nanoscale

    When you pass a magnet over the surface of ferrofluids, it begins to reach out with its gooey, spikey arms. A team of researchers at Juniata College is using a Phantom high-speed camera to study its unique, magnetic particles that have vast implications for future lab-on-a-chip devices. The camera helps them to see these too-small, too-fast reactions and capture their nanoscale behaviors.

  • Using High-Speed Infrared Imaging In Additive Manufacturing

    Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, involves extremely high thermal gradients that can sometimes induce stress and deformation in the materials. High-speed infrared imaging of this Direct Medal Laser Sintering (DMLS) process on stainless steel has been used to better understand and visualize these thermal transfers.
