Engineers at the University of California San Diego have developed the thinnest optical device in the world—a waveguide that is three layers of atoms thin.
A team of researchers from the Universities of Manchester, Nottingham and Loughborough have discovered quantum phenomena that helps to understand the fundamental limits of graphene electronics.
This video provides an overview of ZYGO Corporation’s electro-optics design and manufacturing capabilities.
ZYGO is focused on bringing solutions centered around precision optical components, extreme precision optical components, and optical assembly services. With abilities to work on a build-to-print basis or build a design from scratch through to volume production, ZYGO offers in-process quality assurance to make sure end product meets or exceeds the customer's specifications.
ZYGO's surface measurement technology is further enhanced with vibration-tolerant SureScan™ technology, which enables users to locate the ZeGage system anywhere in your manufacturing facility without the need for bulky and expensive vibration isolation systems.
SmartSetup™ technology helps users get measurement data from their ZYGO optical profiler quickly by automating set up and configuration tasks.
One of the greatest advantages of thermal imaging cameras in military research and range applications is their ability to image and record thermal data without the need to touch the target under testing. This eBook offers a comprehensive understanding of research and science thermography with topics including how IR cameras work, finding resolution in a distant image, and challenges of infrared radiance measurement.

Author Ken Barat brings decades of experience and perspective to best practices in the use and handling of lasers and fiber optics. From personal concerns like protective eyewear and ergonomic considerations in lab layout, to safety in fabrication environments and the application of microlearning to worker well-being, this free collection of content will help readers understand how to operate — and work in proximity to — these technologies safely and effectively.
Much like the game of baseball, medical manufacturing can be complex, demanding and ever changing. And it's hard. But "the hard... is what makes it great."
Advanced diffusers can meet the needs of light-based therapies by combining extremely homogenous light output at high powers with the ability to transmit visible, infrared, and ultraviolet wavelengths with high efficiency.
Microscope manufacturers have increased their field of vision on the cameras connected to their microscopes to offer more information to their users. This, however, resulted in larger image circles to be covered by cameras with their image sensors, and raised the question: are larger image sensors a perfect fit for large field-of-view (FOV) microscope applications. This white paper explores the answer to this question and delves into the relationship between resolution, magnification, spectral range, and pixel size of image sensors.
A UV blocking filter or ultraviolet optical filter prevents ultraviolet light transmission. UV filters are commonly used in photography to reduce the level of ultraviolet light that strikes the recording medium.
Every character has a back story, and so do high-temperature superconductors, which conduct electricity with no loss at much higher temperatures than scientists once thought possible.
Scientists from Warsaw together with colleagues from Grenoble have moved a step closer to creating stable, high quality colloidal zinc oxide quantum dots (ZnO QDs) for use in modern technologies and nanomedicine.
FLIR Systems and Providence Photonics, LLC announced today that FLIR has made a strategic investment in Providence Photonics, developers of advanced software used to quantify invisible gas emissions using FLIR Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) cameras.
