Photonics is related to modern optics, like quantum optics, opto-mechanics, electro-optics, optoelectronics and quantum electronics. With the term photonics, we refer to the particle properties of light, the potential of creating signal processing device technologies using photons, the practical application of optics, and an analogy to electronics.
Applications of photonics today can be found in in many areas from technology used in everyday life to the most advanced science, e.g. light detection, telecommunication, lighting, metrology, spectroscopy, holography, medical science, (surgery, vision correction, endoscopy, health monitoring), military technology, laser material processing, visual art, bio-photonics, agriculture, robotics, scientific computing and consumer devices.
Lasers And Accessories
Among their many applications, lasers are
used in optical disk drives, laser printers,
and barcode scanners; fiber-optic and free-
space optical communication; medical
applications; cutting and welding materials;
military and law enforcement devices,
measuring range and speed; and entertainment
If you want to get the most out of your laser –
most power, most efficiency, most safety –
you need to measure it.
We offer laser power-energy meters and
sensors, laser beam profilers,
M2 systems and a lot of accessories.
Laser Safety Products
Rapid advancement of laser technology
across a broad spectrum of applications
is making laser safety more important now
than ever before. New laser applications
in medicine,defence, research and industry
present unique safety challenges for
safety and personal protection.
Vibration Control Solutions
All buildings vibrate... activities of people,
machinery, heating and ventilation
systems, and nearby truck or rail traffic
cause all sorts of vibrations. These
vibrations, although acceptable to occupants,
cannot be tolerated by equipment
used in research, precision manufacturing,
inspection, and quality control.
The advent of quantum cascade lasers and
other mid-IR sources has lead the development
of specialized components not commercially
available on an in stock basis.; e.g. MID-IR
Optical Isolators, Focusing Objectives,
Polarization Components, Fiber.Optic Devices.
Optical Filters and Beamsplitters
High-Content Analysis and Raman Spectroscopy are special fields where we can provided filter design and applications expertise for major manufacturers and users. Machine vision, Industrial imaging, colorimetry and automated driver assistance technology are examples of non-fluorescence based imaging applications served by our suppliers.
If there is a need for small and single quantities, we can help you!
