B-Con Engineering is a progressive optics manufacturing company producing aspheric, diamond turned, freeform, plastic optics, and using advanced metrology techniques to provide some of the world's most advanced optical components and optical systems.
Cutting-Edge Optics, High Technology Applications
B-Con serves the optics design, prototyping and manufacturing needs of numerous high technology industries, including:
Acting as a sub-contractor to many of the world's leading companies in these industries, and with many links to the Academic community, B-Con works on the cutting edge of modern optics technology. B-Con components are currently being used on some very high profile projects, including:
Phoenix Mars Mission,optics within the light detection and ranging (LIDAR) instrumentation. The recently launched Phoenix will land on Mars in May 2008 to study the history of water on the planet in all its phases.
Global Imagination® Magic Planet B-Con's optics comprise the projection lens system for Magic Planet's spherical format projection.
The Thermo Scientific™ ARL™ EQUINOX 3000 X-ray Diffractometer for research enables accurate measurements.
KLA’s Filmetrics F40 allows you to transform your benchtop microscope into an instrument to measure thickness and refractive index.
This product profile describes the properties and applications of the ProMetric® I-SC Solution Imaging Colorimeter.
Dr. David Dung
We spoke with University of Bonn spin-off Midel Photonics, a start-up company whose laser beam shaping technology is hoping to sharpen up the laser industry.
Matthias Sachsenhauser, Ph.D.
Following Laser World of Photonics 2022, we spoke with Matthias Sachsenhauser from Hamamatsu Photonics about the role of laser-driven light sources in the future of the photonics sector.
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.
