Mar 2008
EdmundOptics.jpgEdmund Optics has released its “Optics and Optical Instruments Catalog, Spring 2008,” which features the new TechSpech BeamX laser beam expanders and UV fused silica aspheres. The 404-page publication includes expanded sections on optics, fiber components, mechanics, lasers, electro-optics, imaging, machine vision, microscopy, magnifiers and illumination. Targeted to optical researchers, designers and OEM users, the resource provides application guides and technical articles on areas such as selecting optics, laser and mirror coatings, edge blackening, polarized light, kinematic movement and video optronics. The company’s products have applications in the research and development, electronics, semiconductor, pharmaceutical and military markets.

1. The branch of physics that deals with the use of electrical energy to create or manipulate light waves, generally by changing the refractive index of a light-propagating material; 2. Collectively, the devices used to affect the intersection of electrical energy and light. Compare with optoelectronics.
