Optical Surfaces Ltd is an established supplier of large diameter mirrors, optical flats, windows, lenses, beam expanders and collimators to leading research establishments worldwide.
Researchers have taken a major step towards bringing terahertz frequencies out of their hard-to-reach region of the electromagnetic spectrum and into everyday applications.
Quantum researchers at the University of Bristol have dramatically reduced the time to simulate an optical quantum computer, with a speedup of around one billion over previous approaches.
As the major absorbing aerosols, black carbon exerts positive radiative forcing on the atmosphere and affects the radiation balance of the earth-atmosphere system and hence aerosol-boundary interactions.
Optical tweezers use light to immobilize microscopic particles as small as a single atom in 3D space. The basic principle behind optical tweezers is the momentum transfer between light and the object being hold. Much analogous to the water pushing on a dam that blocks the stream, light pushes onto objects (and also attracts them) that make the light bend.
Researchers including a postdoc at the University of Massachusetts Amherst have created a gear-shaped photonic crystal microring that increases the strength of light-matter interactions without sacrificing optical quality.
Today, Teledyne FLIR introduces two families of X-Series science cameras, the X858x and X698x, offering high-speed and high-resolution thermal imaging capabilities for scientific research and engineering applications within the mid-wave infrared (MWIR) and long-wave infrared (LWIR) spectrum.
Photonis has announced its participation at the SPIE Photonics West Conference, taking place Jan. 25-28, 2022, at the Moscone Center, San Francisco, California, USA.
Today, Evosep Aps and Zef Scientific, Inc. announced that they have entered a partnership to increase and improve the US service coverage for the growing Evosep One install base. The agreement covers all service aspects from installations over warranty provision, preventive maintenance, and troubleshooting visits.
To advance Europe’s competitiveness and support advanced technical developments, the European Commission is providing €3 million of funding to early adopters of the PHABULOuS Pilot Line Services for the implementation and integration of free-form micro-optical components.
For close-up inspection tasks in high radiation environments. Resolve Optics offers both a standard range as well as customer specified fixed focus radiation resistant lenses.
A molecular machine can be defined as a series of molecules that can conduct different mechanical movements as a reaction to a stimulus. This is an important structure for the development of various cellular functions.
One of the key components behind next-generation high resolution video displays will be optical nanoantennas. These devices use nanotechnology to mix and interfere with light beams to produce colour and even holograms.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning are currently affecting our lives in many small but impactful ways. For example, AI and machine learning applications recommend entertainment we might enjoy through streaming services such as Netflix and Spotify.
NIL Technology (NILT), a leading optical solutions company, will exhibit products, solutions, and demonstrate a complete imaging system built around the pioneering 1M metalens at SPIE Photonics West 2022, which will be held in San Francisco from January 22-27.
