Sumita Optical Glass has built up a solid record of technical achievement since its establishment nearly half a century ago, in 1953. A continued stream of technological breakthroughs in optical glass, fiber optics and functional glass products have kept Sumita Optical Glass's customers, many of the world's leading companies, at the cutting edge.
The results can be seen today in high-tech products from industrial microscopes, fiberscopes, and special engineering glass to cameras, hard disk data storage devices and laser optical disc players and recorders. But this is only the beginning, as Sumita Optical Glass works to develop the next generation of optical glass, fiber optics and functional glass materials that will make possible the products that designers have yet to imagine.
The most important asset in the development of new technologies is not technology itself, but rather the independent outlook and fresh approach that sets Sumita Optical Glass apart from others in the high-tech glass industry.
This is why Sumita Optical Glass continues to be first with significant advancements that translate into high value-added materials that help create uniquely better products in every application. Sumita Optical Glass's mascot Ranger, the free-range rooster, is symbolic of the courageous and independent attitude that made Sumita Optical Glass a leader in its field.
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.
