Market Report

Machine Vision Market Specifics Across Europe

Machine vision as a cross‐sectional technology has numerous application fields which make the machine vision sector heterogeneous and highly recognized in many different areas. Often our industry is addressed as a whole overlooking the fact that also geographically machine vision technology comes in all kinds of characteristics within the various national European markets.

Optical Measurement and Testing

Quality Control of Fluorescence Imaging Systems

We have developed a new tool for the assessment and monitoring of most of the performances of fluorescence microscopes. We believe it can advantageously be integrated in the quality control process of core facilities where a certain level of performance for the end users must be assured.

Beyond the Diffraction Limit

Light microscopes enabling superresolution imaging suffer from a standardized quantification method. We demonstrate the quantification of a super‐resolution microscope by using standardized DNA origami samples with the help of two leading camera technologies (EM‐CCD and sCMOS).

Optical Systems

Axicons in Action

Axicon lenses convert incident plane waves into approximations of Bessel beams. The circular profile of an axicon beam brings capabilities that suit the lenses for use in corneal surgery and optical trapping. The unique features of axicon lenses also enable an interesting type of wavefront sensor. Axicons focus light along the optical axis, and the position shifts if aberrations are introduced to the beam. That creates...

Trends in Manufacturing

Fabricating the Flexible Future

By leveraging the unparalleled pulsed UV‐power of excimer lasers, gossamer‐thin functional foils attached to rigid wafer‐ or panel‐type carriers can be detached with high yield and fast rate, increasing productivity and lowering the costs of manufacturing a new generation of thin and flexible components and devices.

Machine Vision

Analyzing Filiform Corrosion

Filiform corrosion is a form of corrosion that particularly affects aluminum coated or painted with anti‐corrosive surface protection layers. Exposure to water and oxygen as well as certain salts enhance the production of corrosion foci that infiltrate the space between the metal and its coating, especially when scratched along cutting edges or imperfections. The corrosion slowly expands into fine outgrowths, which...

Blink and You Miss It

The “inelastic scattering of light”, or Raman effect, was observed in practice for the first time in 1928 by C. V. Raman for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1930. It is only in the last two decades, however, that Raman spectroscopy has begun to realize its potential as an almost universally applicable analytical technique from materials and life sciences applications to point of care analysis. This is primarily...

Additive Manufacturing

Production of Optical Plastic Components

Additive procedures are a very innovative technology for the customized production of complex components, which make them interesting for many fields of application including the field of optical technologies. The anisotropy of additively manufactured (AM) components is disadvantageous due to their layer structure. Different 3D printing procedures and transparent materials were investigated within the joint project...
