Tomographic imaging with faster results for geologists

Tomographic imaging with faster results for geologists
The new module for the ZEISS Xradia Versa 500-series of 3D X-ray microscopes (XRM) will allow users to acquire high quality images in one-quarter the time. ZEISS OptiRecon uses an advanced iterative reconstruction technique. You can make the optimal choice for your requirements: same quality images four times faster, or superior quality in the same amount of time.

Techniques reveal heightened detail of vertebrate life

Techniques reveal heightened detail of vertebrate life
A mingling of science and art, next-gen photographs of vertebrate skeletons are at once fascinating, eerie, intricate and exquisite. “People are inherently interested in how these skeletons look,” said W. Leo Smith, associate professor of ecology and evolutionary biology and associate curator at the University of Kansas Biodiversity Institute & Natural History Museum. “In any given scholarly paper, you’d be lucky to have a couple of hundred people read it top to bottom — but a lot more people will look at the images".

Precision motion is rising to the challenges of photonics

Precision motion is rising to the challenges of photonics
Just as 20th Century engineers relied on electric motors, 21st Century engineers are turning to lasers and fibre optics to create machines and technologies that will change the world and redefine life as we know it. Here, Gerard Bush of motion experts INMOCO explains how the precision optical systems required are pushing the boundaries of drives and controls.

Astronomical optics at the largest telescope in Eurasia

Astronomical optics at the largest telescope in Eurasia
Rostec has completed the installation of a mirror at the Large Altazimuth Telescope (BTA) in the Special Astrophysical Observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences (SAO RAS) in Karachay-Cherkessia. The telescope with updated astronomical optics, which increase the range of observations 1.5 times, will begin working this fall. The key element of BTA installed by Rostec experts is a mirror with a diameter of 6m.

On-chip optical filter processes wide range of wavelengths

On-chip optical filter processes wide range of wavelengths
MIT researchers have designed an optical filter on a chip that can process optical signals from across an extremely wide spectrum of light at once, something never before available to integrated optics systems that process data using light. The technology may offer greater precision and flexibility for designing optical communication and sensor systems, studying photons and other particles through ultrafast techniques, and in other applications.

Integrated optical module reduces smoke detector false alarms

Integrated optical module reduces smoke detector false alarms
Analog Devices has introduced the ADPD188BI, an integrated optical module featuring two LEDs, photodiode, and analog front-end (AFE) integrated together in a single package. The high performing AFE offers high ambient light rejection and reduces power consumption to support longer battery life. The two LEDs help reduce false alarms often caused by steam and dust. False alarms are a leading factor in detectors being removed or disabled by consumers.

Turning silicon photonics into a competitive asset for the electronics industry

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, together with Tampere University of Technology (TUT), has accelerated the development and commercialisation of silicon photonics products as part of the renewal of the Finnish electronics industry. With the help of silicon photonics, companies can develop increasingly compact, more efficient and more affordable products, where optical signals are used for such purposes as precise measuring, laser imaging and rapid data transfer.

Enabling the development of electro-optical devices

Enabling the development of electro-optical devices
A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules. The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes.

Squeezing light into nanoscale devices and circuits

Squeezing light into nanoscale devices and circuits
As electronic devices and circuits shrink into the nanoscale, the ability to transfer data on a chip, at low power with little energy loss, is becoming a critical challenge. Over the past decade, squeezing light into tiny devices and circuits has been a major goal of nanophotonics researchers. Electronic oscillations at the surface of metals, known as surface plasmon polaritons or plasmons for short, have become an intense area of focus.
