PITTSFIELD, Mass., April 1, 2020 — As the days grow longer, so does our spring webinar schedule. This spring, there will be many opportunities to learn about the latest advancements and applications in photonics while you work at home. Optics, biophotonics, machine vision, and lighting technologies are some of the areas that we’ll be covering over the next few months. Webinars are free, registration is easy, and if you register and can’t attend the webinar, you can watch the recording, which is available the day after the live event.

Here is a list of upcoming webinars, with links to the registration form for each one. Webinars are presented by well-respected experts in the field. Most presenters have advanced degrees, many are members of SPIE and OSA, and all of them have a depth of experience in their field.

Getting Specific About Coating Specifications — NACL’s director of business development, Dan Fiore, will provide expert guidance on how to specify, test, and confirm that your optical coating needs are clearly stated and conveyed, and he will answer some of your most challenging coating questions.

GLOSSARY
flow cytometry
A method of measuring the characteristics of microscopic particles, usually cells, as they flow in a fluid stream through a beam of light. Particles may be stained with fluorescent dye and the fluorescence detected via laser illumination.
metrology
The science of measurement, particularly of lengths and angles.
artificial intelligence
The ability of a machine to perform certain complex functions normally associated with human intelligence, such as judgment, pattern recognition, understanding, learning, planning and problem solving.
machine vision
Interpretation of an image of an object or scene through the use of optical noncontact sensing mechanisms for the purpose of obtaining information and/or controlling machines or processes.
