Combining a line laser, SWIR camera, and drone technology provides PV plant operators with a contactless solution to improve their ongoing inspection processes.
In this episode, we cover a new microscope that rapidly detects viruses, solar cell inspection with photoluminescence, and how optical coherence tomography (OCT) can study the female reproductive system.

A high performance tunable laser with a wide tuning range and an output combining high power and high signal-to-noise ratio. It uses a new optical cavity design with precise speed control up to 200 nm/s and sub-picometer resolution and accuracy.

Let’s take a look at some of the tech introductions that are already starting to shape the future of the welding industry.
Currently in its 16th year, the annual event recognizes industrial innovation in photonics, honoring companies that are bringing transformative products to market.
In Case You Missed It
Researchers achieve photonic crystal in-plane beam steering within the terahertz range—which has wide-ranging implications for the realms of optics, materials science, and 6G communications.
Many lives could be saved and pain alleviated if disease screening and detection were simpler and faster—and it’s exactly what an international team of researchers is working toward.
In this Q&A, researchers at the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory answer our questions about the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) x-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) upgrade and what this engineering feat means for science.
An optical fiber-based platform may lead to brain network-based treatment regimens for neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders.
Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light researchers in Germany create a light-driven optical vortex isolator—with potential for selective manipulation of vortex modes solely by light and sound waves.
The result? Experimentation showed another way to build effective optical frequency combs.

Filters in spectroscopy must perform as a unit to successfully detect signals above the background noise. Raman scattering is a weaker signal requiring high-performance filters with steeper edges, flatter transmission, isolating the signal of interest.

Upcoming Webinar: December 15th
Join us on December 15th at 11 am ET to learn why the work of fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) is supported by advocates who empower people and fuel opportunities.
