Using two types of “designer” quantum dots, researchers are creating double-pane solar windows that generate electricity with greater efficiency and create shading and insulation for good measure.
Researchers at TU Wien (Vienna) have developed a type of cloaking technology that renders opaque materials invisible by letting the flow of light pass through the medium unperturbed.
ZC&R Coatings for Optics (ZC&R), a division of Abrisa Technologies, now offers high throughput efficiency Wide Angle, Broad Spectrum Sensor and Laser Scanning Window solutions for the visible 425-675nm (VIS), visible to near infra-red 425-1050nm (VIS-NIR), short wave infrared 700-1800nm (SWIR) and popular laser and LED wavelengths from 405 to 1550nm. Designed for image sensors and scanners these optics are used in industrial 3D metrology, machine vision, automotive obstacle avoidance, security and surveillance, document scanners, 3D scanning, gesture recognition and other digital imaging applications.
Precision Glass & Optics recently announced the customization of two thin film optical components for a high-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) accessory. They developed the dielectric cold mirror and cylindrical prism mirror for the Real Eye Nano; an advanced visual presentation and eye-tracking system constructed of glass and plastic with a reduced size for operation in confined MRI spaces.
4D Technology Corporation, manufacturer of optical measurement systems, announced that its FlexCam Metrology Module was awarded a 2016 Prism Award for best new metrology instrumentation at SPIE Photonics West.
The 2016 Prism Awards For Photonics Innovation winners were named today at Photonics West in San Fransisco, California. The nine product winners provide valuable new capabilities such as more effectively identifying drugs to target specific diseases, enhanced detail-rich portable imaging, and new sensing tools for applications from medical diagnostics to astronomy, and 3D-printing of precision glass. Winners from five countries were announced by industry leaders at a gala banquet.
This article provides a list of recommendations on how to handle Precision Optics Corporation Microprecision™ Prisms.
On the last day of the MD&M East exhibition, Chuck Gerlowski with Precision Optics Corporation discussed their micro lenses, micro prisms, and more. These components can be used to design CMOS sensors for imaging systems and illumination systems in medical devices.
Lynn Allen with ITT Exelis and Lawrence Shaffer with ArmoreLine discuss the partnership between their two respective companies, and their roles in creating high strength windows for armored vehicles, aircraft, remote systems, and high energy systems.
Daniel Bukaty, president of Precision Glass & Optics, gives an overview of the company’s three divisions: the commercial division that specializes in high-volume/low-cost optics, the coating division that can perform coatings on all types of optics from 250 to 2,500 nanometers, and the precision optics group that can manufacture all types of flats, prisms, windows, and mirrors.
