Event Summary: BiOS & Photonics West 2018
Xenics booth at Photonics West
With the biggest photonics event in the United States happening in January, the stage is set for us to bring our best products at Photonics West 2018.
Held once again at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, the spotlight is placed on the brand new XLIN-FC detector series from Xenics. This innovative SWIR linear detector defines modern age SWIR imaging by offering high speed, high resolution, and low noise. Available in rectangular or square pixels, the XLIN-FC should not be missed for anyone working in demanding spectroscopy and machine vision applications.
Photonics West 2018 was the first instance where visitors could see the XLIN-FC up close. Live demo of popular products such as the Tigris-640 MWIR cooled camera and the Xeva-2.5-320 were also presented during the event.
The PRISM Finalist
Apart from our presence as an exhibitor, this year, we’ve also participated in the SPIE PRISM Awards.
The product representing Xenics is none other than the XLIN-FC. Submitted for the category “Detectors and Sensors”, the XLIN-FC made its way to the finalist round against 2 other products.
Jointly organized by Photonics Media and SPIE, the Prism Awards for Photonics Innovation is a leading international competition that honors the best new photonic products on the market. The finalists and winners were decided by a diverse panel of 30 judges, each with a vast history and expertise in various industries.
The winners were announced in a black-tie gala award ceremony during the exhibition week. While Xenics did not come up on top (the award went to NKT Photonics), it has been a very exciting journey and we thank the judges for their consideration.
Rest assured: This would not be the last you hear about the XLIN-FC, keep reading!
