    Measuring Aspheres with Next-Gen Solutions

    An aspheric lens, or sometimes known as an asphere, is a lens that’s not part of a sphere or cylinder and it can depart somewhat from a sphere. The more complex surface profile of an asphere not only reduces or eliminates spherical aberration...

    Soil Characterization Using the NIRQuest+ Spectrometer

    In this experiment, we identified the moisture content of organic and topsoil samples using the NIRQuest+2.5 spectrometer (900-2500 nm) as part of a diffuse reflectance system. Determining moisture content in soil has great significance in...
  • The market for robots that pick fruit is still in its early days, but newcomers are emerging, equipped with a range of photonics technologies

    Robotic Fruit Picking

    The fresh fruit industry is still largely dependent on seasonal workers, which presents many challenges because there has been a serious worker shorter in recent years. Relying on humans for this task may be becoming a thing of the past....
