Microsharp Corporation Limited (MCL) was established in the U.K. in April 1998, with the aim of developing a leading position in the provision of innovative, reliable and consistent light management technologies for flat panel displays.
Microsharp products are mainly used to improve the performance of liquid crystal displays in direct view and under magnification as well as being used in front and rear projection display systems. They are also finding increased application in other industries from diagnostic devices through tailored light sources to security products. These technologies, which now form the basis of the MCL patent and product portfolio, were initially pioneered by Durand Technology Limited, and then developed by Nashua Corporation over a five-year period, before returning to form Microsharp Corporation Limited.
Microsharp is an innovative developer of Light Management Technologies. We combine an understanding of end user applications in the displays, media, security and illumination industries with our capabilities in optical design and testing, UV-curable and self-organizing lacquers (resins), microprecision replication and optical film production.
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.
Dynamic characterization of MEMs devices is achieved by Micro System Analyzer MSA-650 IRIS.

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.
