Since its inception in 1980, Metricon Corporation has pioneered the practical application of prism coupling technology to problems of thin film, bulk material, and optical waveguide characterization. Metricon introduced the world's first commercial prism coupling instrument, the PC-200, in 1980, followed by the PC-2000 in 1984. The Model 2010, the third generation in Metricon's family of prism coupling instruments, now features a Windows-based PC controller and Metricon continues to add features and options as user requirements evolve. Since its introduction in the early 1990's, more than 600 Model 2010 family systems have been delivered to top universities, research institutes, and corporations in 30 countries and Metricon prism coupling systems have been referenced in hundreds of articles in scientific journals.
This product profile describes the properties and applications of the ProMetric® I-SC Solution Imaging Colorimeter.
The Filmetrics F20 benchtop film thickness measurement tool is a general purpose instrument for measuring thickness and refractive index.

Dr. Keith Paulsen
AZoOptics speaks to Dr. Keith Paulsen about the importance of breast cancer detection and the introduction of his team's deep-learning algorithm that associates spatial images of tissue optical properties with optical signal patterns measured during an imaging experiment or patient exam.
Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino
AZoOptics speaks to Prof. Simon Scheuring & Dr. Alma P. Perrino about their recent research using a new line-scanning high-speed atomic force microscopy technique. The method helps characterize the single-molecule kinetics of wild-type bR (bR-WT) exposed to continuous light and short light pulses.
R. Bruce Weisman
AZoOptics interviews R. Bruce Weisman from Rice University in Texas, US, who has discovered fluorescence from silicon nanoparticles in cement and how it can be used to reveal early signs of damage in concrete structures.
