2 April 2017: Digital correction of aberrations introduced by tilted plane-parallel plates in convergent beams

Raytheon

Dr. Catherine Greenhalgh discusses:

When you introduce a beam splitter into a convergent beam (for example in a compact multispectral imager), it creates aberrations. Correction for this is typically done with optics but this can negatively impact size, weight and cost and may not correct for all aberrations. Her paper is about correcting for these aberrations with image processing software and the trade-offs compared to hardware solutions.

23 February 2017: New measurement head for the centering measurement of IR lens systems

TRIOPTICS USA

Early 2017, TRIOPTICS GmbH introduced a centering test system for IR lens systems with significantly improved measurement quality.
The centering measurement of lenses or lens systems for infrared often requires special consideration during inspection. A VIS measurement system is usually sufficient for measuring individual infrared lenses or installing infrared systems. For measuring installed IR systems, however, a test system matched to IR is indispensable. To meet these requirements, TRIOPTICS, a leading manufacturer of optical test systems, will be presenting its new
OptiCentric® IR centering test system for the first time during the 2017 Photonics West from January 31 to February 2 in San Francisco, US.
The new OptiCentric® IR is characterized by its dual band measurement head that allows measurements in the VIS and MWIR range and in which the latest MWIR camera technology has been integrated. This results in an improved measurement quality as well as, due to the camera’s high sensitivity, a high-contrast measurement point even if reflexes are very weak, such as in anti-reflective lenses. Overall, measurement times are reduced, handling is easier and accuracy increases, now reaching values of ≤ 0.1 µm for VIS and ≤ 1.0 µm for MWIR. “This new development has helped us simplify the measurement process considerably,” Product Manager Dr. Patrik Langehanenberg explains. “The centering measurement with IR light immediately follows the VIS measurement. You no longer need to switch or even reset anything between measurement steps. Switching is done automatically.“
As with all OptiCentric® systems, the OptiSurf® can also be integrated into this new system in order to expand the measurement functions to cover air gaps and center thicknesses of the lenses.

21 February 2017: Power over Fiber Smart Monitoring System

MH GoPower Company Limited

The PoF Smart Monitoring System represents a new generation of continuous monitoring systems for switchgear and other critical electrical assets, enabled by the adoption of power over fiber (PoF) technology. A laser data module (LDM) delivers laser light through a non-conductive fiber patch cord (FPC), where the transmitted laser light is converted to electricity within a sensor module to power internal sensors. The POF-WL240 series sensor modules, which can be mounted directly onto bus bars, offer continuous monitoring of bus bar partial discharge, temperature, and humidity by taking sensor readings and then transmitting the sensor data to the LDM via the FPC. The LDM then shares the sensor data with the equipment operator’s monitoring software. The PoF Smart Monitoring System’s non-conductive FPC provides very high voltage and electrical noise isolation ensuring sensor reading data integrity and accuracy. These features make it possible for the POF-WL240 series sensor modules to be placed directly on electrically noisy bus bars, therefore providing valuable monitoring data of switchgear.

POF-WL240 Series Smart Monitoring System Features:
Power over Fiber (PoF) technology
Monitor temperature and humidity on bus bar
Monitor partial discharge and temperature on bus bar
Identify precise location of partial discharge events and hot spots

The ChemDetect™ Analyzer has multiple advantages over traditional Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectrometers—FTIRs are limited in probe beam power and optical quality, and have undesirable trade-offs between spectral resolution and acquisition speed. ChemDetect™ breaks through these limitations through the use of rapidly tunable mid- IR lasers. Signal and reference detectors are built in, along with advanced control and data acquisition electronics. ChemDetect can be customized to your application for easy integration: room temperature operation with minimal thermal load, compact footprint, and multiple modes of control and communication (networked, wireless, or USB). Each sensor platform contains a world-class mid-IR quantum cascade laser (QCL) from Daylight Solutions, offering unprecedented spectral coverage, power, and beam quality. This allows stand-off detection or coupling into any number of sample cells, including long path length multi-pass cells, fiber optics and hollow waveguides, or attenuated total reflectance (ATR) sample cells. The high speed and broad tuning of the system allows for the simultaneous detection of multiple species—often performing the function of several independent sensors in one compact unit.

24 January 2017: Vantablack S-Vis Blackbody Sources | Offering Unparalleled Emissivity for IR Sources

Santa Barbara Infrared, Inc.

SANTA BARBARA, CA - January 17, 2017 - Santa Barbara Infrared, Inc. (SBIR - www.sbir.com), a leading manufacturer of advanced infrared (IR) and electro-optical (E-O) test hardware for aerospace and defense, announces a new ultra-black surface coating technology that improves infrared emissivity in the midwave-infrared (MWIR) and longwave-infrared (LWIR) spectral wavelengths. The unprecedented effective emissivity utilizes the Vantablack® S-VIS coating from Surrey NanoSystems (United Kingdom) for blackbody calibration sources and cold shields. In the MWIR (from 3 to 5 microns), emissivity is greater than 99.8 percent (± 0.1 percent); in the LWIR (from 8 to 12 microns), it is greater than 99.5 percent (± 0.15 percent). SBIR now offers the Vantablack coating for terrestrial blackbody applications worldwide under an exclusive licensing agreement with Surrey NanoSystems.

Vantablack is the world's blackest surface coating material for the ultraviolet (UV) to far-infrared (FIR) spectrum. It employs an innovative nanomaterial structure that absorbs virtually all incident light. Developed for space-borne imaging applications, it offers exceptional IR absorption and excellent thermal, mechanical and environmental stability, making it ideal for the most demanding applications. The new material has already achieved space heritage with its recent deployment on an Earth-observation satellite.

The previously-unachievable emissivity levels on a flat-plate blackbody source provide improved radiometric accuracy for the calibration of IR cameras. Additionally, stray light reduction in baffles for cold-shield designs and IR radiation applications will also benefit from this novel technology.

Steve McHugh, president of SBIR, notes, “We are excited to announce our exclusive rights agreement with Surrey NanoSystems for the use of the ultra-black Vantablack. The superb broad-band absorption of the coatings and the highly-uniform deposition layer help us create blackbody sources that offer extremely high radiometric performance without caveats - greatly enhancing ease of use and accuracy. The new coating will improve the performance and utility of SBIR’s precision E-O instrumentation, reinforcing our leadership position in military, aerospace, IR/FLIR testing and simulation markets. We are delighted to offer this unique product in all our blackbody products.”

Surrey NanoSystems’ CEO David Wong comments, “We’re really pleased to have Vantablack recognized by SBIR, which has a reputation built on performance and precision. We’re also delighted to have a partner to simplify procurement and provide local support for Vantablack coatings in North America. We see this as crucial to serving such an important market.”

19 January 2017: Force Stepping Piezo Actuators FSPA

CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES

The presented motor is a linear stepping motor so called Force Stepping Piezo Actuator (FSPA) able to support large
external force without losing its holding position whether powered or unpowered. FSPA are based on inertial stepper piezo motors. They are composed of four main elements: an actuator, a lever arm,a mass and a clamp. The principle of such motors is simple and relies on stick-slip effect and dissymmetrical accelerations.Holding force is naturally provided by the FSPA. In order to test the motor resolution, a step by step signal is applied while position output is controlled using a capacitive sensor. FSPA motor is well suited for example to tune arms’ lengths of interferometers, to align sensitive elements, to control shape of optical components (adaptative optic), …The motor being self-locking and vacuum compliant, it is well suited for demanding environments as found in space applications where unpowered locking is required during launch. Non-magnetic version of FSPA can also be used in high magnetic field (MRI) or high sensitivity applications. FSPA is a complement to the Linear Stepping Piezoelectric Actuators (LSPAs) from CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES.

28 November 2016: attocube expands sensor head portfolio for interferometric displacement measurements

attocube systems Inc.

attocube's interferometric displacement sensors IDS and FPS (offering 1 pm resolution &10 MHz bandwidth) are now available with new sensor heads. The existing portfolio already includes various options, each one optimized for specific measurement tasks: ultra-compact sensor heads (Ø 1.2 mm) for the use in very confined spaces; versions designed for easy alignment or enabling measurements on a wide variety of materials (glass, aluminum, ceramic etc.).

Two new heads have recently been added to the portfolio: The D12/F2.8 is designed for highly sensitive surface measurements offering a spot size of 2 μm at a working distance of 2.8 mm. Due to its sophisticated design, the M12/C7.6 completely eliminates signal intensity peaks even over large distances of up to 5 m, and is therefore the perfect choice for long range measurements.

The advantage of both sensors lies in the highly flexible usage of their fiber-based sensor heads: the simple plug-and-play nature allows for various set-up configurations and the exchange of sensor heads within seconds.
