Pushing the Limits of Interferometric Testing
Pushing the Limits of Interferometric Testing
Laser interferometers have come a long way in the last 40 years. At 76 million independent surface image points per second in phase-shifting mode, the latest in laser interferometer instrumentation delivers extreme levels of surface characterization. By comparison, the first phase-shifting interferometers in the 1970s measured at a rate of only 512 points per second. These advances in surface visualization capability coincide with ever-increasing metrology requirements.

Fabricating Precise Polymer Optics
Fabricating Precise Polymer Optics
Polymer optics are one of the cornerstones of photonics, driving the innovation necessary to meet the requirements for ever-smaller installation spaces and significant weight savings, all while achieving a higher image quality. The miniaturization of optics using micro-structured surfaces today can be found in many areas including smartphones, LED lighting and consumer electronics, where these attributes are particularly important.

Optical Techniques Tackle Nanoscale Measurements
Optical Techniques Tackle Nanoscale Measurements
Materials at the nanoscale can behave in surprising ways. While the properties of macro materials can often be predicted, the behaviors of a material invisible to the naked eye can differ greatly. Providing insight into this nanospace is essential for maximizing its commercial success. The extremely high spatial resolution characterization capabilities of today’s nanomeasurement and test tools reveal vital information about correlations between structure and property. Only by studying, designing and modifying these nanostructures can we achieve the desired properties and performance from nanomaterials and devices.

Optical Systems Capture First Light From Colliding Neutron Stars
Optical Systems Capture First Light From Colliding Neutron Stars
Scientists from the international LIGO and Virgo Scientific Collaborations have announced the detection of the bright spark of two neutron stars colliding. This event has been dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on August 17, 2017.

Cloaking Approach Prevents Light Scattering in Opaque Objects
In a novel approach to cloaking technology, researchers irradiated an opaque material from above, using a specific wave pattern that allowed light waves from the left to pass through the material without any obstruction. The researchers believe that this approach could be applied to different types of waves, including sound waves.

The MUSE Microscope for Advancing Light Microscopy
The MUSE Microscope for Advancing Light Microscopy
Tue, Jan 16, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EST
This webinar will introduce microscopy with UV surface excitation (MUSE), a fluorescence-based, slide-free optical imaging system that provides high-resolution diagnostic images in minutes without causing damage to fragile tissue samples. Presenter Richard Levenson, M.D., FCAP, will discuss the development of the MUSE microscope and demonstrate its use. Researchers, scientists and clinicians who are interested in learning about novel forms of microscopy and recent advances in the field will benefit from attending and/or viewing this free webinar.
