How to choose an OEM spectrometer

03/25/2014 How should original equipment manufacturers (OEM) evaluate modular spectrometers for their large-volume applications? Choosing an OEM spectrometer for your new product is just like choosing a spectrometer for your laboratory experiment. However, there are considerations related to making a produc...

Understanding Optical Filters

03/25/2014 Optical Filters can be used to attenuate or enhance an image, transmit or reflect specific wavelengths, and/or split an image into two identical images with controlled brightness levels relative to each other.  To understand the importance of choosing the correct optical filter for any appli...

Clearly Superior: Epoxies For Optical Applications

12/26/2013 As technology in the optics industry continues to advance and improve, careful consideration of the properties of epoxies must be evaluated. When determining the most effective adhesive to be used in opto-electronics, medical and other optic related industry applications, trade-offs of key charac...

Real-time Profiling for Focusing, M2, Divergence & Alignment

09/19/2013 Beam intensity profiling is an essential tool in many aspects of photonics. The precise intensity distribution in a focused laser beam is critical in many applications: flow cytometry, laser printing, medical lasers, and cutting lasers are just a few examples. Intensity profile measurements can c...

The Benefits of Color Corrected Optical Lenses

09/09/2013 The Benefits of Color-Corrected Optical Lenses   When precision and image quality results are key to an optical assembly, minimizing the number of lenses are a critical design consideration.  Selecting single optical lenses that can simultaneously reduce multiple aberrations is an ideal...

How to Use the Zemax Black Box Surface

04/30/2013 The Zemax Black Box surface solves the problem of how to share optical design data without revealing design secrets. Sharing optical design data has previously presented many difficulties for optical designers and the organizations that employ them. This White Paper brought to you by Radiant Zema...

Life Sciences - Zemax Models of the Human Eye

03/27/2013 There have been literally dozens of eye models published over more than 150 years, from very simple “reduced” eyes consisting of a single refracting surface to very complex models with more than 4,000 refracting surfaces. Some models have a gradient index crystalline lens, some represent the grad...
