Xenics newsflash August 2018

Thanks for joining us yet again for another issue of our newsflash. Before we set our eyes on upcoming events for the later year, let us take a quick look at interesting developments for the past months.

 

As always, this issue brings you relevant news about all things Xenics and infrared. We have a few articles to share this month, be sure to have a look at them if you haven’t already.

 

Things are quickly ramping up as we approach the end of the year. We’re working on some projects that will no doubt be very interesting in the coming months. We are excited to reveal them when the time is right – so please stay connected to avoid missing out!

 

As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions regarding any of the topics below. We will be happy to hear from you and provide answers to your inquiries.

SPIE DCS 2018

It is almost a tradition to start the issue off with an exhibition recap.

 

This year we are back again at Florida for the SPIE Commercial & Defense Sensing 2018. The event was a huge success for Xenics. This year, we had a higher than average turnout, with an increase in international visitors from all over the globe.

 

For the booth itself, a strong line up of our best cameras was presented. These included the Xeva 2.35 and the Cheetah, both unique InGaAs cameras suitable for high-end research applications. We also brought in the XLIN-FC detector, that you may have remembered made its first appearance on the SPIE Photonics West.

 

If you were one of the visitors at our booth, we hoped that the discussions have been fruitful. It was very much the case for us.

The material of tomorrow

Carbon Nanotubes

Applications and luminescence-based imaging with SWIR. Read the full article here.

You may have heard of graphene, a material with amazing properties such as strength, flexibility, and superconductivity.

 

Graphene is widely remarked as a potential game-changer for the futuristic world of tomorrow. The semi-metal material may have generated a lot of buzz around the web these days, but do you know where graphene is being used today?

 

Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) consist of a monolayer of graphene rolled into a cylinder with nanometer diameters and high aspect ratio.

 

Let us look at how SWNTs are already being used across two major - albeit very different industries. We also show some examples of how deeply cooled scientific SWIR InGaAs cameras are being used as enabling technologies for these applications. 

A cost effective Multi-spectral (SWIR) solution

The original German article has been translated by Xenics and is available here.

Heres another article as a bonus for readers who are here for technical knowledge.

 

Hyperspectral Imaging systems are widely used today, capable of capturing the finest possible differences in materials.

 

With high costs and technical aspects limiting the use of this technology in some applications, what are suitable and cost-effective alternatives?

 

MSTVision GmbH investigates one such alternative - temporal multiplexing (SWIR). The paper demonstrates a cost-efficient setup of a multiplexing system, comprising a Lynx SWIR linear camera.

CHII 2018

 

Back in Europe, we returned to Graz, Austria for the Conference on Hyperspectral Imaging in Industry – or CHII for short.

 

The two-day conference in June is a focused networking event for anyone working with hyperspectral imaging applications.

 

Apart from the one-to-one interaction with potential customers, we also presented key insights of Hyperspectral Imaging to a large audience of visitors and stakeholders.

Upcoming events

VISION - the key event of the year for those working in the machine vision industry, will soon be taking place.

 

At Xenics, all hands are on deck to ensure that visitors to our booth will have a fruitful experience.

 

We have been working on some very important projects for quite some time, and it seems all that will reach its climax during the show.

 

While we cannot wait to announce these exciting news, further information will be made available around the time of VISION 2018.

 

Where to find us

 

We will soon dedicate a page on our site to VISION 2018. This page will provide up-to-date information about our presence before, during, and after the show.

 

Please stay tuned for more updates!
