Superluminescent LEDs Bridge the Gap
Superluminescent LEDs Bridge the Gap
Superluminescent light-emitting diodes are broadband semiconductor devices that are closely related to their more commonly known relatives, laser diodes and light-emitting diodes. Superluminescent LEDs offer distinct optical attributes compared to LEDs and laser diodes and are the preferred choice for imaging applications that call for reduced speckle and minimal interference noise.

Free-Space Optical Communications Comes of Age
Free-Space Optical Communications Comes of Age
It has taken a few decades for engineers to achieve a critical mass of system concepts and technologies for free-space optical communications. Developers around the world have now demonstrated all the most challenging parts of the technology, and we can now state that free-space optical communications is finally taking hold in a number of classical and novel markets.

Added Intelligence Transforms Medical Sensors Into Diagnostic Devices
Added Intelligence Transforms Medical Sensors Into Diagnostic Devices
As sensors shrink in size, they are able to reach places that were previously inaccessible — such as inside the human body. What is more, incorporating such increasingly tiny sensors within a medical device means there is more space left for added functionality. Medical devices of the future will not only have the capacity to sense but will also perform meaningful analysis and diagnostics.

Radiant Vision Systems, Test & Measurement - Conoscope Lens for Viewing Angle Conoscope Lens for Viewing Angle

Radiant Vision Systems, Test & Measurement
The Radiant Vision Systems conoscope lens enables high-resolution photopic measurement of the angular distribution of color, luminance, and contrast of displays and display components. Fourier optics map a light-emitting spot on a display to the connected camera’s CCD so that each pixel corresponds to a different emission angle.
