Innovative sensor technology greatly improves the ability of food manufacturers to detect pathogens before they reach the consumer.
Optical biosensors have provided improvements in food safety, food hygiene systems and quality control.
Of the various lasers that exist, multi-stripe lasers have been shown to exhibit particularly complex spatiotemporal behavior.
The use of 3D optical scanners has emerged as a non-destructive and highly accurate method for conducting wear analysis on a wide range of sample types.
Li-Fi uses pulsing light from a special LED to deliver secure, high-speed communications; transmitting data in a more effective way than traditional radio-based communication technology.
Photonic, non-explosive sensors are based on the use of the fiberoptic shockwave sensors to detect position and monitor liquid levels in containers.
Upon scattering in the atmosphere or reflecting off water or waxy leaves sunlight becomes linearly polarized, resulting in a particular pattern with the e-vector parallel to the surface.
This article discusses using laser sensors for gas analysis applications.
This article discusses graphene and the optical properties it exhibits.
In general, handheld spectrometers are a more-convenient, mid-range spectroscopy option for analysis than bigger benchtop systems.
