C Mount

C Mount

A C mount is a type of lens mount that is commonly found on 16 mm movie cameras, CCTV, machine vision cameras and microscope phototubes. A c mount adapter for a microscope without a lens in it, is merely a connector for a camera. What is seen is a ‘direct image’ on the monitor screen, […]

Optical Conveyor Belt

Optical Conveyor Belt

The theoretical branch of the field of ultracold atoms is completely interdisciplinary, attracting top scientists from atomic, condensed matter, high energy and nuclear physics, as well as from quantum optics and quantum information. 

Theragnostic Radiotherapy

Theragnostic Radiotherapy

By using theragnostic radiotherapy, a personalized treatment plan can be tailored to both the geometric and biological attributes of a patient’s tumor. Medical imaging needs radiation therapy just as radiotherapy needs imaging. Progress in functional and molecular imaging has dramatically improved the ability to map the spatial distribution of cellular phenotypes and microenvironmental parameters in […]

3D Scanning

3D Scanning

3D scanning is all about capturing real-world data and converting it into a 3D model. Until recently, 3D scanners were mainly used for industrial applications. 3D printing is becoming more common, especially for hobbyists, and the demand for 3D scanning devices that can transform real objects into 3D printable models is growing.

CMOS Image Sensors

CMOS Image Sensors

Virtually all digital and video cameras use CMOS image sensors. In the past two decades, numerous advances have been made in this type of imaging technology. Now, CMOS image sensors are beginning to be made with superior quality that will provide a large range of new products for military and aerospace users.

3D X-Ray

3D X-Ray Spectral Scanner

Phil Butler – a physicist at the University of Canterbury – along with his son, Anthony – a radiologist at the Universities of Otago and Canterbury – invented a revolutionary 3D color medical scanner known as the MARS spectral X-ray scanner. For the first time, researchers have captured 3D images of the human body. The […]

Hyperspectral Camera

Underwater Hyperspectral Camera

A new underwater hyperspectral camera has been deployed on Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROV) for a more automated identification, mapping and monitoring of the sea floor around the world.

Automotive Cameras

Automotive Cameras

In today’s automotive environment, there are a variety of in-car cameras. These automotive cameras provide solutions to different problems. Safety is the first priority, followed by security. In many of the vehicles being made today, you can find front, rear, backup, side and far-view cameras, along with rear-view, and surround view cameras. As a matter […]

Traffic Cameras

Traffic Cameras

Part of the mystique of driving has often been the possibility of someday getting into a fast car, pointing it in a random direction, and just driving for the sure pleasure of driving.  However, the onward march of technology that has made its way into every area of modern life has also found its way […]

3D Medical Imaging

3D Medical Imaging

From the early days of CT scanners and mammography devices, medical imaging has come a long way. With 3D medical imaging, healthcare professionals can now access new resolutions, angles, and details to help them gain a better understanding of their patient, all while cutting back on the dosage of radiation used to gather the images.
