Nanoscale photodetector increases performance without adding bulk

Nanoscale photodetector increases performance without adding bulk
A team of engineers from the University of Wisconsin–Madison and the University at Buffalo have developed a nanoscale photodetector that combines a unique fabrication method and light-trapping structures. The researchers — electrical engineering professors Zhenqiang (Jack) Ma and Zongfu Yu at UW–Madison and Qiaoqiang Gan at UB — described their device, a single-crystalline germanium nano-membrane photodetector on a nano-cavity substrate, in the journal Science Advances.

Sensor enables medical CT scanners to render sharper images

Sensor enables medical CT scanners to render sharper images
Worldwide supplier of high performance sensor solutions, ams, has released the AS5900, a current-to-digital converter for use in Computed Tomography (CT) scanners which offers ultra-low noise, very high resolution and linearity. The analogue performance of the AS5900 will enable new CT scanners to produce sharper, more detailed images. Medical CT scanners equipped with the AS5900 will feature an improved X-ray detector module, and will help physicians to produce more accurate diagnoses while subjecting patients to lower doses of radiation.

Ensuring efficiency in rotary encoders when generating signals

Ensuring efficiency in rotary encoders when generating signals
A new BlueBeam technology has been developed for incremental rotary encoders with optical sensing principle increases efficiency when generating signals. Specially developed blue emitter LEDs, combined with modern and more finely structured sensing chips, allow a more energetic penetration depth of the blue light in the chip. The result is a higher resolution, significantly improved signal amplitude, and a considerably improved signal quality.

EyeVision software supports Gocator 3D sensor

EyeVision software supports Gocator 3D sensor
  EyeVision is now supporting the Gocator 3D sensor from LMI. The software provides the integrated brain of the 3D sensor. It allows the sensor not only to capture an image but also to use the complete 3D command set of the software to measure, compare and read on the 3D point cloud or 2D gray-scale image.
