Sensor Resolution Versus Lens Resolution

This informative new white paper from Resolve Optics addresses the often misunderstood considerations when selecting an optimum lens for your digital camera or sensor. The ability of a lens to resolve detail is usually determined by the quality of the lens but is ultimately limited by diffraction. It is commonly thought that the resolution of a lens should match or exceed the Nyquist resolution of the sensor that it has been selected to work with, in order to achieve optimum performance. This is a common misconception. Download…

The Importance of correctly specifying your lens systems

Lenses are arguably the most important part of your camera, sensor or optical instrument set-up, they make or break your image quality. They control the image that’s projected onto your imaging sensor, and ultimately the quality of the results your camera, sensor or optical instrument produces. Download…


Are off-the-shelf optics always the best solution?

Resolve Optics has published a new white paper that compares the benefits to organisations of sourcing ‘off-the-shelf’ lenses with specialist lenses that meet the exact needs of their application. Download…


Technical Notes

Does My Application Require Radiation Resistant Lenses?

In nuclear power, nuclear reprocessing, space, medical and other scientific applications optical glass may be exposed to high energy radiation like gamma, electron, proton and neutron radiation. With the accumulation of higher doses this radiation reduces the transmittance of optical glass (turning brown or grey) especially near the UV-visible edge of the spectrum. Continue…
