Optical fibers have taken on a new role in the medical industry and are now used within many different optical sensors for a range of non-invasive and minimally-invasive surgical procedures. In this article, we look at how optical fibers have been at the forefront of the sensors and their subsequent use in less invasive surgeries.
Despite being produced decades ago, the use of complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors in optical microscopy was often overlooked. In this article, we look at how CMOS image sensors have started to be used in some optical microscopes.
Schlieren optics is an optical technique that enables the user to image small changes and non-uniformities in the refractive index of air, or other transparent media; and are most commonly used to image air flows.
During nuclear reactions, radioactive isotopes become transmuted (changed) as they decay into another element, or a stable isotope of the same element. This process generates a lot of hazardous nuclear waste that is notoriously difficult to dispose of.
AZoOptics talks to Dr Matthew Hoehler about his recent research, using blue light to see through fires and make previously impossible qualitative observations about material damage during a fire.
