Applied Image and Sine Patterns Enter Agreement
With the signing of an exclusive worldwide distribution agreement, Applied Image Inc. of Rochester, N.Y., has added Sine Patterns LLC to the Applied Image Group companies, which collectively supply test targets, bar-code standards, microscopy and vision calibration, ball lenses and micro-optics, digital camera and plastic optics, and engineered lighting, thin-film and fuel cell coatings.
Founder and managing member of Sine Patterns, Robert Lamberts, will continue to oversee research and development as well as the manufacture of sinusoidal targets. With the addition of the Pittsford, N.Y., company's sinusoidal products and mask making services, Applied Image Group expects to move closer to its goal of being a single-source optics provider.
- digital camera
- A camera that converts a collected image into pixels that are black or white digital or shades of gray. The digital data may then be manipulated to enhance or otherwise modify the resulting viewed image.
- Tiny (less than 2 mm in diameter) lenses, beamsplitters and other optical components used, for example, in endoscopes or microscopes or to focus light from semiconductor lasers and optical fibers.
- plastic optics
- The integration of plastic materials into optical applications. When the materials are refined into lenses, prisms and mirrors, they serve the purpose of glass optics at a lower cost and a significant savings of weight.
