Reducing CO2 Levels Drives Growth in Nuclear Power Plants

A new report discusses how governmental desire to reduce CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere is a prime driver behind the steady growth in nuclear power plant capacity worldwide. Today there are about 440 nuclear power reactors operating in 32 countries supplying...

Extended Range Non-Browning Zoom Lens

Based upon our tried and trusted 6x non-browning zoom lens design – the new Model 192-001 offers high performance over an extended 24-144mm focal length range. The lens’s special glass can withstand long-term exposure to radiation, up to a dose of 100 million RAD, and...

Radiation Resistant Lenses Does Not Just Mean Nuclear

Requiring optical elements that do not discolour or degrade when subject to radiation is not limited to just nuclear applications. For instance – in medical research – our radiation resistant lenses are used as targeting elements in synchrotron radiation...

Making Optical Measurements at Elevated Temperature

To avoid an optical system going out of focus at elevated temperatures you must carefully consider the rate of expansion of components and air spaces. Temperature also affects the refractive index of materials. A new short article discusses optical design...

New Interview: All the Nuances of Optical Design

Today’s industrial applications can seriously put optical design to the test. But finding the best compromise solution is never impossible. IEN Europe interviews Mark Pontin to learn how you can get superior optical performance while meeting demanding...

Radical New Zoom Lens Design

For remote and hazardous environments where simple optical design offers significant benefits – Resolve Optics has developed a radical new optically corrected zoom lens design concept that vastly reduces the moving parts of a zoom lens to just a single push pull...
