Opportunities in the Mid-IR

Date 12/10/2014

The technology for exploiting the mid-IR is developing rapidly:  it includes quantum-cascade lasers and other sources, spectroscopic instruments of many types, and mid-IR imaging and detectors. Here, Claire Gmachl of MIRTHE gives an overview of mid-IR optical technology and the opportunities that arise from their development.

Infinite Possibilities – Easily Combining Scanner and Servo Motion

10/15/2014

High precision motion control applications such as laser micromachining, 2-photon polymerization, glass panel and film patterning, and additive manufacturing now seek to take advantage of the improved precision offered with many high-speed galvanometers. In the past, either very small fields of view had to be used to allow advanced optical configurations with these scanners, or exotic and error-inducing routines such as step-and-scan strategies would be needed to allow processing of larger work pieces. Now an advanced drawing post-processor, along with motion controller enhancements, allows simple interleaving of servo and scanner motion over large fields of view and virtually any pattern type, without the need for time-consuming optimization.

Solutions in Search of Problems: What Spectroscopy Can Do for You

10/07/2014

Spectroscopy is so pervasive that most of us take it for granted. We use it for routine laboratory and test measurements without appreciating how those same technologies have been applied to more challenging applications -- from monitoring patient vital signs at bedside to identifying suspicious materials on the battlefield. Join us as we explore how familiar technologies -- and new ways to exploit them -- are addressing a wider range of measurement problems. From adding wireless capabilities to your spectrometer to reducing its footprint to the size of a matchbox, new technology is inspiring innovative solutions for untapped application needs.

Lasers for Defense and Security

09/10/2014

Used widely now, lasers will become ever more common tools for both military and security personnel. Laser weapons for missile defense, laser designation, infrared countermeasures (IRCMs), laser ranging, laser “dazzlers,” and other applications are in common use now, while other equipment is in development. In this webcast, contributing editor Jeff Hecht describes the leading uses of lasers for defense and security.
