Daily News Briefs
Jul 2005
Glenn Boreman, a professor of optics, electrical engineering and physics at the College of Optics and Photonics (CREOL) at the University of Central Florida, has received a $50,000 grant from the 2005 Lockheed Martin University Research Grant Program for a project, "A New Route to Low-Cost Infrared Optics." Boreman is editor-in-chief of OSA's journal Applied Optics and is a past member of SPIE's board of directors. He is coauthor of the graduate textbook Infrared Detectors and Systems and the author of Modulation Transfer Function in Optical & Electro-Optical Systems, and Basic Electro-Optics for Electrical Engineers. He has published more than 100 articles on the topics of infrared detector and focal-plane analysis, optics of random media, infrared scene projection and transfer-function techniques.    . . .    4D Technology Corp., a Tucson, Ariz., manufacturer of vibration-insensitive dynamic noncontact surface metrology interferometer systemsand software, announced today that its PhaseCam 4010-MW was selected as a recipient of a 2005 R&D 100 Award by R&D Magazine. 4D received a 2004 R&D 100 Award for its FizCam 1000, a Fizeau interferometer configuration. The PhaseCam 4010-MW is a polarization-based Twyman Green dynamic multiple wavelength interferometer. Its development required the invention of an achromatic, high-speed phase sensor and a high-accuracy, relative wavelength calibration method. The system can acquire data at a single wavelength 5000 times faster than conventional temporal phase-shifting or vertical scanning interferometers and can measure surface shape across discontinuities 15,000 times larger than a typical single wavelength interferometer. It can measure diffuse and specular surfaces and has a wide variety of applications, including semiconductor and industrial inspection.

The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
