Sensor Market Set to Soar
Sensor Market Set to Soar
It is no secret that CMOS image sensor technology has undergone a rapid transformation. Driven by the consumer cellphone market’s insatiable demand for fast, high-quality images, there has been substantial investment in CMOS sensor technology, resulting in products that deliver smaller pixels, higher sensitivity and lower noise at a decreased cost.

2D Spectroscopy Simplified
2D Spectroscopy Simplified
The many forms of conventional or linear spectroscopy such as vibrational, electronic and THz all involve measuring light absorption or an emission signal as a function of wavelength to yield information about the structure of the sample being interrogated. In recent years, 2D spectroscopy methods have been developed where the signal is plotted as a function of two different frequencies. This provides unique structural and dynamic information about samples, ranging from model photosynthesis systems to nanomaterials, enzymes, proteins, surface catalysts and semiconductors.

For Ultrafast Photonics, New Applications Emerge
For Ultrafast Photonics, New Applications Emerge
Ultrafast lasers can do a lot, including create a room-temperature superconductor. That type of material transformation is just one emerging area of ultrafast photonics. Today, new ultrafast photonics applications found in lasers and sensors enable systems to see deep into tissue and improve radar performance. Tomorrow, the technology could combat climate change, via more energy-efficient magnetic polarity switching, by transforming ceramics into room-temperature superconductors and more.

Learn Efficient Light Pipe Design Using Virtual Prototyping
Learn Efficient Light Pipe Design Using Virtual Prototyping
Tue, Sep 19, 2017 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
Attendees will learn how to design better, more efficient light pipes using Lambda Research's TracePro software - a 3D CAD virtual prototyping program with the power and tools to simulate and design light pipes. The presenter will demonstrate effective methods and detailed procedures for simulating light propagation in a light pipe model, analyzing cross-talk effects, producing desired output objectives, and optimizing models for efficiency and output. This webinar is for anyone designing light pipes, especially for automotive and avionic displays, industrial manufacturing, consumer electronics applications and medical devices. It's presented by Lambda Research Corporation.
