Optimize the performance and cost of your automated optical imaging system 09 Sep

Dover Motion

Optimize the performance and cost of your automated optical imaging system with 6 key equations for selecting an imaging sensor, objective lens, Z-focusing nano-positioning stage and XY sample positioning motion. Topics covered include: optimal imaging sensor size and resolution, objective lens magnification and numerical aperture, and XYZ motion resolution and stability requirements to enable crisp images. Also discussed is how diffraction affects image resolution, and how to calculate the depth of field for a given objective lens.

Long-range imaging – 800 nm OCT goes ultra-deep 25 Aug

Wasatch Photonics

Achieve imaging depths of up to 12 mm in a single scan with our Cobra-S 800 nm OCT optical spectrometer. Offering comparable image resolution at a much more cost-effective operating wavelength, long-range imaging at 800 nm has the potential to open up new opportunities for the practical application of long-range imaging in ophthalmology, medicine, and nondestructive testing.
