Autofocussing electronic autocollimator from PLX
LASER COMPONENTS’ partner PLX has released the ACT-25FO autofocussing electronic autocollimator. The ACT-25FO combines the functionality of an autocollimator and an alignment telescope in one unit, using a motorised focussing knob controlled by the supplied software.
Small IR laser diode with high power
With the ADL-85Y51TL from Arima, LASER COMPONENTS now offers a cw laser diode that generates 250mW of power from a 5.6mm housing.
UV LEDs cover medical applications
New Yorker Electronics is globally distributing Inolux UV LEDs and Infrared devices for sterilisation, oximeters and other medical and scientific applications.
Visible and NIR laser system solutions
Necsel have become a specialist in visible and NIR laser system solutions thanks to their patented Volume Bragg Grating (VBG) technology, for which the company has been awarded over 35 patents. These VBG elements stabilise laser diode wavelength and produce a very narrow line-width with minimal temperature dependence.
Ultra-compact infrared LED enables gesture control
Advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and technologies previously designed for mobile devices – such as facial recognition, eye tracking or gesture control – are increasingly making their way into the automotive sector. These technologies are based on infrared light.
Off-axis parabolic mirrors for optical instruments
Off-axis parabolic mirrors are the most common type of aspherical mirrors used in optical instruments because they are free from spherical aberrations, and can focus a parallel beam to a point or point source to infinity.
MWIR thermal camera for long range applications
FLIR Systems has announced the FLIR RS8500 MWIR thermal camera designed for range tracking, science, and measurement applications.
Farnell unveils 12-megapixel Raspberry Pi camera
Building on the capabilities of the Raspberry Pi platform Farnell has launched a 12-megapixel ultra-definition-resolution camera with interchangeable lenses.
