Low distortion large format lenses for uniform performance
Resolve Optics has developed optimised large format lenses that offer low distortion and uniform high performance across the entire focal plane. Resolve Optics large format lenses are custom lenses designed to match the performance abilities of the high-end megapixel type camera used in your vision application.
Realising sustainability goals through LED upgrades
Signify has announced that it is helping the city of Davos to achieve its sustainability goals by upgrading both Davos’ streetlights as the lighting of the city’s Congress Centre to high-quality energy-efficient LEDs. Davos will host business and political leaders from around the world during the World Economic Forum.
Off-axis parabolic mirrors designed for imaging applications
Optical Surfaces is an international manufacturer of Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors (OAPs) for demanding imaging applications. Off-axis parabolic mirrors can be a useful tool in optical design. OAPs combine the achromatic and diffraction limited imaging properties of a parabolic mirror with the ability to deviate the light path off-axis, which is useful for most imaging systems.
Why infrared thermal imaging devices make sense for electricians
Heat is a byproduct of operating any sized electrical circuit. Most problems in electrical systems display themselves in terms of heat. Electricians must be able to classify a circuit as normal when the load is on or identify when it is abnormal and identify the issues that presents – finding hot spots that need attention. By John H. Waggoner, Senior Instructor, FLIR Infrared Training Center
Solutions for demanding telescope spectrograph optics
Benefiting from a facility where temperatures remain constant year-round and vibration is practically non-existent, Optical Surfaces has been able to routinely produce and test demanding telescope spectrograph optics (aspheres, flats, lenses, mirrors and prisms) that aims to stretch the limits of conventional optical fabrication techniques.
UVC LEDs with wavelength of 270nm
LASER COMPONENTS’ product portfolio now includes UVC LEDs available in stock from the US manufacturer Bolb. The company has signed an exclusive distribution agreement for both the European and American markets. Bolb specialises in the UVC wavelength range 258 to 315nm.
Cost-effective area lighting using a single RGB LED
The module benefits from MENTOR’s Light Guide expertise and provides very even illumination with just a single RGB LED, offering an infinite range of backlight colours. This use of a single LED makes the module a very cost-effective way of transforming a product.
