Non-Contact Thickness Measurement - Bristol Instruments
Non-Contact Thickness Measurement - Bristol Instruments
Bristol's non-contact thickness gauges utilize the unique properties of light to precisely measure the critical parameter of thickness. Both hard and soft transparent and semi-transparent materials are analyzed without damage or deformation. Measure thickness of optical components and lens assemblies, contact and intraocular lenses, displays, medical products, semiconductors, and glass. Learn more by scheduling a virtual demonstration.

Parallel Optical Processing Enables Highest Throughput Microscopy Imaging
Parallel Optical Processing Enables Highest Throughput Microscopy Imaging
A resolution-enhanced parallel-coded ptychography technique developed by researchers at the University of Connecticut has achieved the highest numerical aperture and throughput to date, compared to previous demonstrations of similar technology. The approach replaces the objective lens with a disorder-engineered surface.

Laser-Writing Method Facilitates 10,000× Greater Data Storage than Blu-Ray Disc
Laser-Writing Method Facilitates 10,000× Greater Data Storage than Blu-Ray Disc
University of Southampton researchers have developed a fast and energy-efficient laser-writing method for producing high-density nanostructures in silica glass. The resulting tiny structures can be used for long-term five-dimensional (5D) optical data storage that is more than 10,000× denser than Blu-ray optical disc storage technology.
