  1. Breaking Down The “Cosine Fourth Power Law”

    In this article, we take a tour into the fascinating physics governing the illumination of images in lens systems.

  2. Qioptiq Introduces New LINOS F-Theta-Ronar 265mm Lens For 1900-2000nm

    Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies Company and global technology leader in delivering innovative optical and photonic solutions, introduces its new LINOS F-Theta-Ronar 265mm Lens for 1900-2000nm.

  3. Where Is Autonomous Mobility Going In Such A Hurry?

    Autonomous mobility’s progress has been achieved in fits and starts, though the past few years have seen accelerated development in its enabling technologies.

  4. Seeing Is Believing: VR/AR Headset Demos At SPIE Photonics West 2018

    It’s safe to say that, whatever the expectations happened to be for last Monday’s altered reality/virtual reality headset demos at SPIE Photonics West, the event's reality surpassed them.

  5. Leti Develops Lens-Free, Point-Of-Care System For Diagnosing Spinal Meningitis

    Leti, a research institute at CEA Tech, has invented a lens-free microscope technology that provides point-of-care diagnosis for spinal meningitis. Outlined in a paper presented at Photonics West, the new technology provides immediate results and eliminates errors in counting white blood cells (leukocytes) in cerebrospinal fluid, which is required to diagnose the infection.

  6. Niko Announces $12k Telephoto Lens At CES 2018

    Nikon Corporation is pleased to announce the release of the AF-S NIKKOR 180-400mm f/4E TC1.4 FL ED VR, a super-telephoto zoom lens with a built-in 1.4x teleconverter and compatible with Nikon FX-format digital SLR cameras.

  7. Harvard-Produced Metalens Is “Next Big Step” In Optics, Virtual Reality

    Scientists at the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have built the first single lens that can focus the entire visible spectrum of light. The breakthrough means bulky stacked lenses could soon be replaced with simpler, flat metalenses — without loss of resolution.

  8. Novel Lenses Enable X-Ray Microscopy With Record Resolution

    Scientists have developed novel lenses that enable X-ray microscopy with record resolution in the nanometre regime. Using new materials, the research team led by DESY scientist Saša Bajt from the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) has perfected the design of specialised X-ray optics and achieved a focus spot size with a diameter of less than ten nanometres.

  9. Qioptiq Introduces Rodenstock HR Digaron Macro 5.6/105 Digital Lens

    Qioptiq, an Excelitas Technologies Company and global technology leader in delivering innovative optical and photonic solutions, introduces its new Rodenstock HR Digaron Macro 5.6/105 Digital Lens for professional photography.

  10. Optical Phased Array Technology Could Make Lens-Based Cameras Obsolete

    Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have developed a 2D ultra-thin camera that uses an optical phased array (OPA), rather than the curved lenses and mechanical parts of a traditional camera, to capture images.
