Making Raman Measurements Reproducible 28 Mar

Wasatch Photonics

Raman OEM applications need consistent spectra to deliver dependable answers. A good-quality OEM spectrometer should, by design, exhibit low unit-to-unit variability from the start, and any remaining small differences should be corrected in order to achieve the most robust and repeatable analytical outcomes in the field. Learn how to achieve >99.5% unit-to-unit agreement using a series of simple corrections.

Imaging in Challenging Lighting Conditions — A Better Way 07 Sep 2023

Teledyne Lumenera

Choosing just the right camera for a particular application can be difficult. Common cameras specifications that are normally considered include resolution and frame rate. However, lighting is an external factor that is potentially even more important to consider. This document highlights how high conversion gain (HCG) and low conversion gain (LCG) camera capabilities can be beneficial in challenging lighting conditions, along with examples of imaging applications where these challenges commonly occur.
