For use with a wide range of general scientific and industrial applications the Photron FASTCAM Mini UX high-speed camera provides outstanding imaging performance at a very attractive price performance ratio.
Two Mini UX camera models provide 1.3-megapixel (1280 x 1024 pixels) image resolution with frame rates up to 2,000fps from the Mini UX50 and 4,000fps from the Mini UX100. Both models are available with recording memory options up to 32GB providing extended recording times and triggering flexibility.
Diffractive optical elements (DOEs) from LASER COMPONENTS are designed to be used as multi-spot beam splitters in beam shaping, and beam profile modifications with lasers and high power lasers. Using diffractive elements for beam splitting is advantageous in the instance of needing one element to produce several beams, or when very exact power separation is required. DOEs can also achieve precise positioning to create holes at clearly defined and accurate distances.
The CV35 AdvancedLine is the first product on the market that combines checkweighing and vision inspection - designed to prevent label mix-up and weight verification in a single process.
Zygo Corporation's NewView 9000 instrument is based on innovative and versatile non-contact optical technologies. Ideal applications include research, precision engineering, quality control, and advanced manufacturing.
The Sugar and Confectionary segment is characterized by very high production volumes. Allergen and cross-contamination concerns are enforced through stringent procedures and controls. The optimal product mix is achieved by postponing or delaying the final flavoring or packaging as much as possible. In this fragmented but consolidated segment, companies must produce efficiently, maximize supply chain efficiency, respond to changing consumer demand, minimize energy consumption, manage assets and ensure food safety.
Running a physician practice has never been easy, something that isn’t going to change any time soon. Today’s environment requires even more than clinical and business expertise — it demands adaptability. It involves building a long-term strategy to handle change.
Optical modulators and detectors have been characterized and calibrated over the years, but less attention has been given to the optimization of converter measurement uncertainties in a practical user context. Since frequency dependencies of various error mechanisms are different, the wide bandwidths could require procedural changes for optimum results. This paper explores these characterization and calibration processes, as well as the net uncertainties, and their impact on example eye diagram generation.
Using ruggedized fiber optic cable, connectors and enclosures can ensure that network communications run reliably at high speed — far into the future.
Within so many diverse optical filtering applications, large-format (>100 mm diameter), narrow bandpass filters (NBPF) are required to be used alongside large collection optics in order to facilitate specific and selective analysis of a phenomena or the substance of interest.

This white paper will discuss the evolution of maintenance strategies, including the use of advanced pattern recognition and machine learning technology to enable the shift to more proactive and optimized strategies. By Kim Custeau, Director of Information and Asset Management, Schneider Electric
The properties of the particles that make up a pharmaceutical powder directly affect its behavior, a classic example being that finer particles are usually associated with poor flowability. However, so too do other ‘system’ variables, such as the degree of aeration or consolidation. The analytical toolkit required for the knowledge-led control of formulation properties therefore necessarily extends from particle characterization through to bulk powder testing techniques. Particle characteristics are the levers manipulated to meet performance targets, but bulk powder properties often define some of these targets. Marrying the results from both types of analysis is often the key to efficient progress.
To combat the issues of contamination, many food manufacturers, who have previously relied upon manual sorting and inspection, are embracing novel technologies and sorting systems.
The oil and gas industry loses an average of eight million metric tons of methane through gas leaks every year. Although this does not equate to some major methane leaks in the past, such as at the Aliso Canyon natural gas storage facility in 2015, the industry is still faced with how to best find and repair leaks at potential escape points. As an alternative to the industry standard for leak detection and repair, Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) is being used to make surveys easier and more efficient.
For many years Northwest New Mexico’s Gallup ranked number one nationally in the number of alcohol-related deaths. This reputation also killed many residents’ spirits, contributing to addiction, joblessness and homelessness, further highlighting the need for behavioral health care in this region. Native American youth have the highest rates of alcoholism of any racial group in the country, according to the National Institutes of Health.
Optical filters are used in many applications and the surface figure and wavefront distortion requirements of filters are dependent on where and how they are used. If filters are only used in sensing applications with very tolerant detector geometries, there may be no need, in practice, to put any constraints on the surface figure or wavefront distortion. This white paper helps the reader understand where, when, how, and how much to specify wavefront distortion to ensure that functional requirements of filters are guaranteed while unnecessary and costly constraints are avoided.
With its I 410 model MULTIVAC Marking & Inspection offers an automatic inspection solution, which is precise, fast and consistently reliable
Quantum communication, which ensures absolute data security, is one of the most advanced branches of the "second quantum revolution" In quantum communication, the participating parties can detect any attempt at eavesdropping by resorting to the fundamental principle of quantum mechanics – a measurement affects the measured quantity.
Ameritek Ventures (OTC: ATVK) (“the Company”), a leading manufacturer of high quality optical fiber preforms to the global telecommunications industry, today announced plans to complete the construction of machines that will enable the production of specialty optical fiber preforms (PCVD) at its Roanoke, VA manufacturing facility. Assembly is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2018
Researchers have demonstrated a new technique that can store more optical data in a smaller space than was previously possible on-chip. This technique improves upon the phase-change optical memory cell, which uses light to write and read data, and could offer a faster, more power-efficient form of memory for computers.
Florian Niethammer, Project Manager for VISION at Messe Stuttgart, is eagerly looking forward to the new exhibits in the area of objectives: "This area of machine vision is unjustly treated as a poor relation.
