Technica: new T150 optical cable sensor

The T150 is a ruggedized high temperature non-metallic cable sensor designed for monitoring distributed temperatures and strains in environments to 260 Degrees Celsius with submillisecond response time. At its core, the T150 optical cable consists

Lens array alignment

The alignment and placement of lenses and lens arrays in optical systems is commonplace today. However, the high-precision adjustment of beam-forming optics is a different matter altogether. The ever tighter requirements on the applications, e.g.

Edmund Optics about liquid lenses

Conventional imaging lenses struggle to capture sharp and accurate images in high-speed or precise applications that require quick refocusing. Liquid lenses overcome these limitations by quickly adjusting focus to accommodate for objects located at v
