Space – The Final Frontier

Many different types of optical imaging and sensing systems are used to observe and measure the Earth and the Universe at large. However, designing optical systems for satellites and spacecraft is challenging due to the harsh conditions that space places upon...

Large format optical module enhances high-speed imaging

A new case study describes how Specialised Imaging chose Resolve Optics to design and supply new large format 8-channel and 16-channel beamsplitter optical modules, with user changeable filters, to upgrade the design of their SIM multi-channel framing camera to meet...

SWIR lenses in the Press

Traditional methods for identifying good from damaged fruit, vegetables, and grain have relied upon the visible inspection of parameters such as shape, size, colour, texture, and defects to determine quality. Many thanks to Food Safety Magazine. They report how...

How do radiation resistant lenses maintain throughput?

When exposed to Gamma or X-ray radiation the majority of optical materials will change colour, typically dark brown, resulting in almost total loss of transmission. Fortunately, standard optical glass can be stabilized against the transmittance loss caused by ionizing...

Which type of zoom lens do you need?

Do all types of zoom lens offer the same advantages and disadvantages? A new technical note compares traditional zoom and optically corrected zoom lenses and explains why the latter offers a superior rugged solution that is ideal for applications in the vacuum of...
