LED Technology
LED Technology Advances Endoscopy
Long life, stability and ease of integration make LEDs the preferred light source. Combining
them with state-of-the-art microelectronics and optics enables new applications.
Improving Surface Cure with UVC
Improving Surface Cure with UVC LEDs
UV+EB Technology
UV-LED solutions have demonstrated the ability to successfully replace older mercury lamp solutions
in a number of curing applications by providing reduced operational costs through longer lifespans,
reduced electrical consumption, higher reliability and reduced heating of substrates.
Definition of TR or time jitter (not to scale).
Timing resolution and time walk in super low K factor single-photon avalanche diode—measurement and optimization
Journal of Nanophotonics February 2018
Timing resolution (or timing jitter) and time walk are separate parameters associated with a detector’s response time. Studies have been done mostly on the time resolution of various single-photon detectors.
Defense Drones Take Sensing to New Heights
Photonics Spectra
Ever-smaller UAVs — along with larger ones built for high-altitude flight — are equipped with an impressive array of sensitive optical sensors, laser rangefinders and thermal cameras for tasks ranging from intelligence gathering to hunting down terrorists.
