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

Iridian Spectral Technologies offers advanced thin film optical filter technology for telecom, spectroscopic instrumentation and lasers, as well as biophotonics, micro-optics, and aerospace applications.
At Photonics West 2018, Ralf Daferner of SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging introduced their stabilized LED light source for in vitro diagnostic systems. This extremely flexible light source provides no interruptions or downtimes, and offers very stable output over its lifetime. Check out the video for more information.
At Photonics West 2018, Jürgen Hammerschmidt of SCHOTT Lighting and Imaging introduced an array of fiber and diffuser technologies for laser beam delivery, especially for medical device applications. Watch the video for more information about their side emitting diffusers, end emitting diffusers, radial diffusers, and emitting fiber rods.
Mike Simmons of Canon USA Future Products And Solutions presents the new 5 megapixel global shutter sensor for a variety of applications, including factory automation, unmanned aerial vehicles, and automobile advanced driver-assistance (ADAS). Watch the video for more in-depth information.
