Ensuring precision and focus in on-axis parabolic mirrors

Ensuring precision and focus in on-axis parabolic mirrors
Producer of fast focusing on-axis parabolic mirrors, Optical Surfaces ensures the mirrors are precisely manufactured to customer specifications and supplied with full surface quality test data. Supplying on-axis paraboloids to leading research groups around the world, Optical Surfaces heritage in this area dates back over 50 years to the production of large astronomical telescope optics, more than 1m (39.4”) in diameter for the Royal Greenwich Observatory.

Thermal imaging assists sports and exercise science research

Thermal imaging assists sports and exercise science research
At Portsmouth University, the Department of Sport and Exercise Science have been reporting on the advantages of using FLIR Systems thermal imaging cameras for measuring skin temperature at rest, during exercise, and recovery. Skin temperature is an important physiological measure that can reflect the presence of illness and injury as well as provide insight into the localised interactions between the body and the environment.

Cooling system works without electricity

Cooling system works without electricity
It looks like a regular roof, but the top of the Packard Electrical Engineering Building at Stanford University has been the setting of many milestones in the development of a cooling technology that could someday be part of our everyday lives. Since 2013, Shanhui Fan, professor of electrical engineering, and his students and research associates have employed this roof as a testbed for a high-tech mirror-like optical surface that could be the future of lower-energy air conditioning and refrigeration.

Optical analyser measures ultrashort pulses

The IQFROG can be used to measure the intensity and phase of optical pulses in both spectral and temporal domains, giving a complete pulse characterisation. It is based on the principle of frequency-resolved optical gating (spectrally resolved SHG autocorrelation) which allows sub-picosecond resolution since it is not limited by the response time of the detector.

Image analysis and AI will change dairy farming

Image analysis and AI will change dairy farming
A group of researchers led by Osaka University developed an early detection method for cow lameness (hoof disease), a major disease of dairy cattle, from images of cow gait with an accuracy of 99% or higher by applying human gait analysis. This technique allows early detection of lameness from cow gait, which was previously difficult. It is hoped that a revolution in dairy farming can be achieved through detailed observation by AI-powered image analysis.

Benchtop based IR thermal test system for live testing

Benchtop based IR thermal test system for live testing
A benchtop based PDR IR-TS One IR Thermal Test System has been introduced by PDR, designed to thermally cycle key critical components and assemblies to detect defects. Using PDR’s Non-Destructive Dual Thermal Stress Screening Process, based on a variation on HALT/HASS principles, the system is able to focus the testing on suspected problem areas to safely screen out early field failures caused by design, environmental, production and structural defects.

Camera-based monitoring of build process significantly cuts costs

Camera-based monitoring of build process significantly cuts costs
Expanding its EOSTATE monitoring suite, EOS have designed an additional tool. EOSTATE Exposure OT, the first commercial system for optical tomography worldwide, now provides real-time, camera-based monitoring of the additive, metal-based build process, based on the EOS M 290 system. The solution fully maps each part throughout the build process, layer by layer, regardless of its geometry and size.

Laser measurement software turns a PC into a display station

Laser measurement software turns a PC into a display station
MKS Instruments has announced Ophir StarLab 3.30, easy-to-use laser measurement software that turns a PC into a multi-channel laser power/energy display station. The new version supports expanded network access via the Ophir EA-1 Ethernet Adapter or Quasar Bluetooth Adapter, user-defined pass/fail limits, and multiple pre-defined startup configurations.
