Here is new edition of Laser Focus World magazine for May 2012. Many feature articles that covers latest optoelectronics industry news and developments in advanced semiconductors, medical equipment, lasers, optics and aviation and aerospace.
UHV environments require more from motion systems
As the number of applications for ultrahigh-vacuum (UHV) environments increases, motions systems must be modified to manipulate optics, particle beams, and measurement devices inside UHV chambers.
BioPhotonic Solutions’femtoAdaptiv wins award for dramatic imaging improvements in multiphoton microscopy
The 2012 CLEO/Laser Focus World Innovation Awards program is designed to honor groundbreaking products in the field of photonics and laser science.
Wind energy gets a boost from wind-turbine lidar
One of the most exciting commercial applications for light detection and ranging (lidar) technology is to estimate wind speed and direction in order to optimize the performance of modern day wind turbines.
Improved APD design boosts photon-counting detector efficiency
Avalanche-photodiode (APD)-based photon counters have many benefits compared to other photon-counting technologies. Operated in Geiger mode for single-photon detection, they ca be optimized for specific task.
