Toptica: Terahertz-Based Plastic Inspection

plastics

Many polymeric materials appear – more or less – transparent for terahertz radiation. Researchers and engineers have successfully exploited this behavior for contact-free analysis and non-destructive testing. For example, pulsed terahertz radiation can uncover the thickness of an object, using an "echolocation" technique: In reflection-mode measurements, terahertz pulses strike the object under test, and its front and back side each reflect a part of the incident pulse. The time-of-flight difference, i.e. the time elapsed between the arrivals of the pulse echoes from either side, is directly proportional to the optical thickness of the layer. The method still works if the object consists of several different layers, and TOPTICA's customers have resolved layers down to 10-20 µm, even in ternary and quaternary materials.

Hot off the Press: Nanonics announce publication of Conductive Atomic Force Microscopy

Final cover HR

Nanonics is pleased to share the news of the recent publication of Conductive Atomic Force Microscopy: Applications in Nanomaterials,edited by Mario Lanza (Publisher: Wiley-VCH) , the first book to summarize the applications of CAFM as the most important method in the study of electronic properties of materials and devices at the nanoscale. The book includes a chapter entitled "Multiprobe Electrical Measurements without Optical Interference," written by Nanonics team members. This new publication will no doubt contribute greatly to the field of CAFM.

LaVision FRAME Imaging Technology: Fastest camera in the world

 

Forget high-speed cameras capturing 100 000 images per second. A research group at Lund University in Sweden has developed a camera that can film at a rate equivalent to five trillion images per second, or events as short as 0.2 trillionths of a second. This is faster than has previously been possible.

Lund University has developed a high-speed camera featuring 5 trillion frames per second using the LaVision FRAME imaging technology.

The novel FRAME (Frequency Recognition Algorithm for Multiple Exposures) approach opens up new possibilities in ultra-fast imaging at reduced costs. The technique permits a conventional camera to store several images simultaneously in a single exposure on its sensor. The resulting multiply exposed image is processed by the FRAME algorithm which reconstructs the original individual images.

Laser Quantum: Ultrafast adiabatic second harmonic generation

venteon

Second harmonic generation (SHG) is one of the most fundamental techniques used in the photonics laboratory. Widely used in many applications, such as nonlinear spectroscopy, it can suffer from low conversion efficiency to the higher-energy photon when used with short pulses as these can result in low phase-matching. A team from Tel Aviv University, led by Prof Haim Suchowski, recently reported on the technique of adiabatic frequency conversion using a Laser Quantum venteon OPCPA to generate efficient broadband conversion of ultrashort few-cycle pulses into the visible range.

Ocean Optics: Spectral Analysis of the Total Solar Eclipse

Monitoring Irradiance using an STS-UV-RAD Spectrometer

A hundred years is a long time to wait for the chance to see a total solar eclipse. On August 21, 2017, with a rare eclipse tracing a path across the country from west to east, the U.S.A finally had their chance.

For those who weren’t in the 60-70-mile “path of totality,” they could travel to the closest region of totality or experience partial eclipses from 75%-90% coverage (Figure 1). More than 300 million people in North America had a chance to view the eclipse according to NASA. The continent was gripped with eclipse mania in anticipation of such an epic, once-in-a-lifetime event.
