12 Considerations For Thermal Infrared Camera Lens Selection
12 Considerations For Thermal Infrared Camera Lens Selection There are many factors to be considered when developing a solution that requires a thermal imager or infrared (IR) camera, such as the application, waveband requirement, minimum resolution, pixel size, and the ability to scale production. An element that will impact many of these considerations is the IR camera lens. This white paper offers 12 considerations when selecting the optimal lens for a thermal imaging solution.  Continue Reading...
Innovation In AR Lens Coatings: High Quality Coatings For High-Power Lasers Lens coatings are an essential part of high-power CO2 laser systems. Coatings must protect the lens and allow for the highest levels of optical performance, with low levels of absorption, a long life expectancy, and an acceptable cost/benefit ratio.  Continue Reading...
