LWIR Transmission and Refection Measurement of Plano Optics at Normal and Variable Angles of Incidence
Accurate and reliable infrared spectral measurements of optical coatings are one of the most critical challenges today. Optical manufacturers around the world specify increasingly sophisticated IR coatings for their planar optics focusing on better detection and identification of objects at long distances. Often, the production capabilities for obtaining optical coatings are well ahead of the existing metrological capabilities for certifying their quality.
The PHOTON RT 7512 spectrophotometer is a unique instrument specially designed to effectively meet these challenges. The instrument allows measuring the transmission and reflection of coatings designed for LWIR. An unsurpassed feature of the PHOTON RT 7512 is the ability to carry out automatic measurements at variable angles of incidence up to 60 degrees in polarized light. These non-trivial tests are supported with the built-in feature which accurately compensates for beam displacement at high angles and ensures S-pol and P-pol results in just a few minutes. Maximum thickness of the sample can be a record 40 mm.

MWIR On-axis Transmission Measurement of Lenses and Lens Assemblies.
Why spectral measurements of lenses are so important?
Most of the optical parts are lenses. Lenses come in vast variety of forms and sizes, both convex, concave, cylindrical and aspheric.
Lenses are coated in vacuum chambers when placed on the fixture or planetary rotation holder.
Due to the nature of the vacuum deposition process there is no possibility to measure actual transmittance or reflectance on lenses in a real time.
So flat witness samples are always used for process monitoring. However, the coating on lenses often differs from that on the witness sample.
For many applications, it is critical to know transmission of the real lens.
The actual optical performance can be often analyzed only once all lenses are installed in the optical system.
It may take substantial time and efforts to identify the «bad» lens.
These costs grow even higher for systems and objectives having multiple lenses. Needless to say, spectral performance of complete lens objectives also needs to be assessed!
LINZA 2752 spectrophotometer effectively addresses these challenges when it comes to on-axis transmission measurements of MWIR lenses and objectives. With its large compartment and sliding detectors, one can successfully measure individual lenes with diameter from 10 mm to 150 mm, and complete lens assemblies with end-to-end length up to 680 mm.
Press Release: LUCID Releases High Resolution 65 Megapixel Atlas10 Camera Featuring Gpixel’s GMAX3265 CMOS Image Sensor
LUCID Releases High Resolution 65 Megapixel Atlas 10 Camera Featuring Gpixel’s GMAX3265 CMOS Image Sensor
LUCID announced the series production of its new Atlas™10 camera featuring the 65 MP Gpixel GMAX3265 image sensor.
The ATX650G Atlas10 is a high-performance camera that delivers exceptional image quality and speed for applications that require high bandwidth and low latency. The camera is designed for industrial, scientific, and medical imaging applications where high-resolution images with high-speed data transfer and global shutter functionality are critical. The Gpixel GMAX3265 CMOS image sensor offers 9344 (H) x 7000 (V) charge global shutter pixels with ultra-low read noise of <2e, >70dB dynamic range, and 1e-/p/s dark current at room temperature. Thanks to its light pipe technology, the sensor exhibits excellent shutter efficiency of 1/30,000 and large angular response.
“The 65 MP Atlas10 featuring Gpixel’s GMAX3265 image sensor is our highest resolution camera yet,” says Rod Barman, President at LUCID Vision Labs. “By adding this sensor to our camera portfolio, we’re addressing the growing demand for higher resolution sensors to capture a larger inspection area with even more detail and exceptional image quality, such as flat panel display and semiconductor inspection, aerial surveillance and metrology.”
“Gpixel is excited to see LUCID bringing our GMAX3265 signature product to the market as part of their Atlas10 camera portfolio,” says Wim Wuyts, Chief Commercial Officer of Gpixel. “LUCID is a valuable, long-term partner, and we are confident that this partnership will continue to bring the market additional excellent vision solutions”.
The Atlas10 10BASE-T camera is known for its industrial reliability offering Power over Ethernet (PoE+), robust M12 and M8 connectors, Active Sensor Alignment for superior optical performance, and a wide ambient temperature range of -20°C to 50°C. The ATX650G Atlas10 features a TFL-II lens mount designed specifically for large sensor formats. The camera is compatible with 10GigE RDMA technology championed by LUCID for low latency and high throughput image transfer with optimized CPU load.
The Atlas10 is a GigE Vision and GenICam compliant camera capable of 10 Gbps data transfer rates and allows the use of standard CAT6 cables up to 25 meters. Atlas10 features Power over Ethernet (PoE+) that simplifies integration and reduces cost.
The new Helios™2 Wide 3D Time-of-Flight (ToF) camera has entered series production.
Helios2 Wide integrates Sony’s DepthSense™ IMX556PLR back-illuminated ToF image sensor paired with a wide-angle lens and four wide-angle 850nm VCSEL laser diodes, providing a 108° Field of View (FoV). The camera is suited for applications with a close working distance and large area of operation such as full-size palettizing.
The Helios2 Wide offers the same IP67 and Factory Tough™ design as the regular Helios2 but quadruples the viewable area thanks to its wider 108° x 78° Field of View. This allows the Helios2 Wide to image a much larger area at the same distance of a Helios2 camera or image the same area but at a closer distance to the target, allowing for more flexibility with camera installation. Helios2 Wide offers a 640 x 480 depth resolution at up to an 8.3 meter working distance and a frame rate of 30 fps.
Cell alignment using an alignment table supported by polar plot representation
Manual Lens Barrel Alignment
Centration testing usually uses a mechanical reference such as the lens barrel axis as reference. In these cases, alignment of the barrel to the axis of rotation of the inspection system is critical. Watch this video to learn how to do this easily using OptiCentric® 9 software
Fast manual lens centration testing and alignment
The OptiCentric® Compact is particularly suitable for measurement of single lenses and manual alignment of lens systems.
These tasks are quickly mastered thanks to the intuitive setup. The precise measurement with an accuracy of 0.1 µm forms the basis for manual alignment.
TRIOPTICS presents two new enhancements to the OptiSurf® center thickness measurement system: a three times shorter measurement time and the new LensGage upgrade module, which enables determination of the center thickness without needing to know the refractive index of the material.
New Version – OptiSurf®
TRIOPTICS introduced the new version of the OptiSurf® center thickness measurement system.
All variants that operate with a test wavelength of 1.3 µm have been enhanced with an extensive upgrade to optimize data collection as well as the communication interface. As a result offers the fastest center thickness measurement on the market for complex lens systems with optical path lengths greater than 50 mm.
Extended field of application – OptiSurf® LTM with LensGage
With the LensGage module, the OptiSurf® center thickness measuring system allows the non-contact measurement of the center thickness without requiring knowledge about the material and the determination of the group refractive index. This information can then be applied to identify unknown glass materials.
