A white paper from Telops

Thermal infrared hyperspectral imaging is well suited for the detection, identification, and quantification of industrial stack gas emissions. This application note describes a measurement campaign performed at the Port of Rotterdam with the Telops Hyper-Cam, a commercial high-performance, FTIR-based hyperspectral imaging instrument. Principles of gas detection, quantification, and identification are discussed and computed mass-flow rate results are presented from data acquired at a commercial alkene production facility.

Exciting news from Resonon! Our friends from Montana have just released a new Hyperspectral camera that covers the 330-800nm spectral range. This new imager covers futher parts of the UV range than its predecessor and any commercially available hyperspectral camera.

As with Resonon’s other list of products, the Pika NUV2 can be used with any of their laboratory, outdoor or remote sensing imaging solutions.

Exhibition: 7 – 8 December | Technical programme: 6 – 8 December – NEC in Birmingham

Make key connections at this leading exhibition with product demos, industry presentations and technical workshops, and networking with exhibiting companies and colleagues.

Connect with representatives from leading companies, and learn about the latest products to hit the market and find resources to help you in your work.

Photon 2022 is the eleventh conference in a biennial series that started in 2002 covering optics and photonics. This year the conference will be held as an in-person event with live streaming capabilities enabling participants to access the talks online.   

During the event, participants will have the opportunity to hear from leading experts in the field, attend lectures from leading technology experts, and visit the exhibition profiling the latest in optics and photonics technology. The programme will consist of plenary and invited talks, as well as contributed presentations and posters. There will also be ample opportunity to network and explore collaborations with colleagues. 

The conference will bring together internationally leading researchers across a wide range of disciplines in both academia and industry to exchange ideas and discuss new research.

The 16th annual conference organised by the British Society for Strain Measurement will bring together leading international researchers from academia and industry to showcase research and innovation in experimental mechanics. The conference will be held at St Anne’s College, University of Oxford.

The conference will be chaired and organised by a team of academics from across the UK, Professor James Marrow, University of Oxford, Dr Hari Arora, Swansea University and Dr Daniel Mulvihill, University of Glasgow.

Greateyes GmbH a world leader in scientific imaging and PL/EL measurement solutions, announce the launch of LOTTE – a new 18bit, UHV compatible in-vacuum CCD camera, optimised for lowest outgassing and deepest cooling.

LOTTE can be submerged, operated and positioned freely inside a vacuum chamber. Utilising scientific-grade back-illuminated CCD sensors for the detection of EUV, VUV and X-ray signals, LOTTE is equipped with a novel and advanced cooling concept enabling detector temperatures as low as -100 °C. It is furthermore driven by the most powerful and versatile true 18-bit electronic platform available for in-vacuum use;

The special design and unprecedented performance make the LOTTE a unique companion for demanding low-light scientific research applications.

Given its low phototoxicity, Selective Plane Illumination Microscopy (SPIM) or light sheet microscopy is currently the fastest imaging technique suitable for live imaging of voluminous biological samples. The samples and capillary, typically used as a sample holder, induce aberrations that limit the optical quality of the imaging system. Adaptive Optics has proven to be very effective at correcting this sort of aberration. It drastically improves the resolution and contrast of the image and allows reaching deeper layers of the biological sample. Read on here…

Adaptive Optics boost Lattice Light Sheet Microscope

A flavor of the now trending light sheet microscopy, the Lattice Light Sheet Microscopy (LLSM) developed by Eric Betzig at Janelia Research Campus, recently revolutionized the field of in vivo microscopy. Despite the superb imaging performance provided by LLSM, this method is prone to aberrations deeper inside the sample, which deteriorate the image quality. To compensate for this limitation, implementations of adaptive optics (AO) for LLSM have been proposed, but are so far quite complex and/or expensive. Read on here…
