The energy levels of the electrons in a solid’s crystalline lattice determine whether it can generate light or not, for example as a light-emitting diode (LED).
Optical Surfaces Ltd. reports how its high precision reference flat mirrors are enabling testing and precise alignment of Earth observation satellite telescopes.
Over the past ten years, the Holography and Metamaterials (HaM) Lab at the University of Dayton’s Department of Electro-Optics and Photonics has produced ground-breaking work in dynamic and digital holography.
Holographic interferometry is a method for using light to measure stress, strain, and vibration. It determines defects in structural bonds by measuring the light’s wavelength. It fully utilizes a hologram’s capacity to mimic an object’s optical field of reflection or transmission.
Radiant Vision Systems, a leading provider of scientific imaging systems for automated visual inspection of light sources and displays, announces that its ProMetric® I61 (61-megapixel) Imaging Colorimeter has been recognized among the best in machine vision today by the judges of the Vision Systems Design 2022 Innovators Awards program.
Resolve Optics has developed a custom 16 mm focal length fixed focus lens for a leading nuclear systems integrator.
Virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) have the power to change how humans perceive and interact with digital data.
Creaform, a business unit of AMETEK, Inc. and the worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and engineering services, announced today that it is launching two scanners with great price-performance ratios as part of its HandySCAN 3DTM | SILVER Series solution suite.
LASER COMPONENTS has over 30 years’ experience producing the highest quality optical coatings. We manufacture partially reflective mirrors as standard for the wavelength range 193 nm – 5 um. Partially reflective mirrors are generally produced for 0° AOI as output couplers, or for 45° as beam splitters, though other incident angles may be manufactured upon request
TriLite, developer of the world's smallest projection display, announces that it is working with Dispelix, the leader in see-through waveguides for wearables, to create an ultra-compact display system for Augmented Reality (AR) smart glasses.
