    Security Software Saves Lives at Sea

    Man overboard events continue to be a common occurrence in the cruise industry. Such events can occur at all hours of day and night, all weathers and sea states. If a fall is from a great height, such as the top of a cruise vessel, the fall can...
  • Solar Cell Inspection with Vision

    Near-Infrared Cameras Look for Cracks in Solar Cells

    Solar power is a clean and attractive alternative source of electricity. There has been an increasing demand for photovoltaic modules to be cheaper and become more efficient at solar energy conversion. Solar cells, which form the basis of a solar...
  • Endoscopic inspection system

    Endoscopes Inspect Aircraft Engines While on the Wing

    Performing visual inspection on fully assembled industrial systems, especially those with complex geometries, can be extremely challenging. The process must often be performed without decommissioning or disassembling the system itself, often...
  • Cobots automate the assembly line

    Collaborative Robots Automate the Assembly Line

    Collaborative robots work side by side with humans, often working on the same task as if they were co-workers. The first such robot was sold by Universal Robots in 2008, before the term was coined. Last year the collaborative robot (or...

    High-Intensity Line Lasers in Solar Cell Processing

    High intensity line lasers at 355-1064nm see use in a number of modern production processes, including ablation, polymer welding and solar cell processing. For applications such as these, laser intensities of more than 50mJ/cm2 at pulse durations...

    Photonics & Food

    Photonics has long played an important role in the food industry, with light technologies used to grow and pick crops on the farm to keep our food fresh, safe and free from counterfeit ingredients throughout the production process. UV-Vis and...
  • Testing sun protection with spectroscopy

    Spectroscopy Measures Sun Protection Factor

    Understanding the deleterious effects of sun damage on the eyes and skin, we have become familiar with the need for sunscreen with varying sun protection factors (SPF). But just what SPF means and how effective they are are not entirely clear to...
