Parabolic mirrors assist accurate 3D flight tracking
Optical Surfaces has been selected by the Optical Engineering Group at the University of Warwick (UK) School of Engineering to supply key focusing optics to enable accurate 3D flight tracking and analysis of mosquito flight behaviour.
FLEXPOINT mounts with an integrated heat sink
With their fundamentally redesigned mounts, the FLEXPOINT modules from LASER COMPONENTS can be mounted in such a way that the beam does not deviate in the slightest from the desired position. The two standard versions for module diameters of 11.5 and 19mm are supplemented by a precision mount for 19mm modules.
NIR-MX800-LN intensity modulator series
LASER COMPONENTS has introduced the NIR-MX800-LN series intensity modulators from iXBlue, especially designed to operate in the 800nm wavelength band. They are available with modulation bandwidth at 10GHz and 20GHz.
High frame rate OLED DDIC for 5G smartphones
Magnachip Semiconductor has announced that it has commenced full-scale mass production of its first 120Hz High Frame Rate (HFR) OLED display driver IC (DDIC) for QHD flexible displays, following the successful product release and initial production in 2020.
Silicon pin photodiode enhances bio sensor performance
Vishay Intertechnology has broadened its optoelectronics portfolio with the introduction of a new high speed silicon PIN photodiode with enhanced sensitivity to visible and infrared light.
3G-SDI and analogue YPbPr interface for block cameras
AIVION has announced the TL7055, a small form factor 3G-SDI/HD-SDI plus analogue YPbPr output video transmitter for zoom block cameras with an industry-standard LVDS interface. The Interface Board TL7055 can be mounted on the back of the camera.
Lenses & optical systems for challenging environments
Producing a lens or optical system for challenging environments, such as aerospace, industrial or military use requires careful consideration of its resistance to vibration, shock, temperature and water ingress in addition to ensuring high reliability and top performance.
UV-C disinfection lighting safeguards players
Signify has announced that it is supporting a safe future for stadium sports by installing UV-C disinfection lighting at The Stoop, home of English Gallagher Premiership Rugby Union Club Harlequins. Signify’s UV-C Partner Powercor has installed 11 UV-C disinfection upper air units in the Honours Bar.
Optical wavelength splitter eliminates DWDM power meters
TEMPO’s recently launched optical wavelength splitters allow a standard powermeter (OPM) to be able to measure signal levels in WDM networks. The wavelength splitter OWS200 splits multiplexed wavelengths found in NGPON2 networks (Next Generation Passive Optical Networks) also known as TWDM-PON.
Temperature-stable pyroelectric LTO detectors available
LASER COMPONENTS’ LT3111 series pyroelectric LTO detectors (lithium tantalate detectors) are especially suited for Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. The core of this new detector series is a 7-µm-thick chip. Compared to other materials, LTO is extremely temperature stable and robust.
