TOPIC NEWSLETTERS

Defense & Security
With a focus on optics and photonics technologies that enable defense, security, and sensing applications, this eNewsletter coverage includes laser-based weapons, infrared sensing and imaging, target illumination, pyrotechnics, sophisticated image processing (such as facial recognition) and more.

Top

Detectors & Imaging
From detectors to cameras to sophisticated 3-D vision systems, and from the terahertz to the infrared (IR) and ultraviolet (UV), this eNewsletter covers the components, systems, and applications of detectors and imaging technology. Track novel techniques such as image fusion and image recognition, as well as extended spectral capabilities, like terahertz imaging, as they expand the overall capabilities and market opportunities of imaging applications.

Top

Fiber-Optic Components & Systems
Optical fiber components and systems are crucial to modern data and telecommunications. This topic center covers standard telecom and specialty optical fibers including single-mode, multimode, gain fibers for optical amplifiers and lasers, and specialty photonic crystal or ‘holey’ fibers and other developing designs, as well as fiber-optic sensing devices and components like fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs).

Top

Lasers & Sources
From the ultraviolet to the infrared, find out about the design and applications of all types of lasers, amplifiers, and other advanced sources like light emitting diodes (LEDs) in this eNewletter. Track the latest advances--from the "hero experiments" with high-energy lasers, to the real-world implementation of LEDs for lighting; see the hottest products as they're announced; and understand how they are used in real-word applications.

Top

Optical Components & Systems
In the photonics industry, optical components and systems include lenses, filters, thin-film coatings, mirrors, metamaterials, silicon photonics, and complex optical assemblies that enable microscopes, telescopes, and illumination systems to focus, reflect, diffract, transmit, or block light signals. This topic center also describes the numerous optical manufacturing techniques that enable such a broad variety of optical devices.

Positioning & Support
While simple optics can tolerate misalignments of hundreds of microns, others--such as confocal microscopes or certain interferometers—may need nanometer-level stability. Optical mounting, positioning, and isolation equipment is available for all these needs. See this eNewsletter for insight into the many positioning and support solutions and applications currently available to systems designers.

Top

Science & Research
The optics and photonics industry depends on scientific research breakthroughs to develop new optics, fiber-optic devices, detectors and imagers, and spectroscopy and other test and measurement instrumentation. This eNewsletter brings you breakthrough research on the daily photonics advances in our scientific community from both industry and academia, as well as award and grant news.

Top

Software
Whether you’re interested in optical design and modeling, image processing, image fusion techniques, finite element analysis, or even manufacturing process control, the photonics software eNewsletter has it covered. Learn about the latest software releases to popular programs like Zemax and CODE-V, and the newest software packages in development.

Top

Spectroscopy
Modern spectroscopy equipment is evolving from large-scale and correspondingly large-sized laboratory instrumentation to handheld spectrometers and even chip-based spectroscopy equipment that resides on a microscope slide or in small attachments to your cell phone. Keep pace with the latest business and technology news in spectroscopy by receiving this eNewsletter.

Test & Measurement
The need for quantitative information is central to all science and engineering, but it is the precision to which this information must be known that makes photonics especially challenging. This eNewsletter covers all aspects of photonics test and measurement … from wavelength characterization using, for instance, spectrometers, optical spectrum analyzers, or wavelength meters … to microscopy and subdiffraction imaging.
