Strain Measurement in Microlenses Using an Automated Polariscope

Microlenses are polymer or glass lenses used in a wide range of products, including mobile phone cameras, LED systems, and solar cells. These lenses require high image clarity and optical throughput.

Robust microlens quality control includes an assessment of residual stress throughout the lens. Retardation measurements to assess stress in transparent optics is measured as the phase shift between the polarized component of light along the fast axis compared to that along the slow axis. Generally, retardations are larger in areas where there is greater stress on the optic.

The Luceo LSM-9100S automated polariscope, which provides precise retardation measurements, can measure strain and stress in microlenses.

Art Photonics GmbH and Ostec Announce Partnership to Promote Sales and Distribution of Spectroscopic Probes; Barnett Technical Services to Handle Sales & Distribution in North America

Elk Grove, CA – art photonics GmbH and Ostec announce today an agreement for Ostec to handle worldwide sales and distribution of near-IR, mid-IR, Raman, and Diffuse Reflectance Scattering/Fluorescence spectroscopic fiber-optic probes manufactured by art photonics.

In North America, sales and distribution will be handled by Ostec’s Distributor, Barnett Technical Services.

Viacheslav Artyushenko, Founder and CTO of art photonics, said “we are pleased to work with Ostec to accelerate the sales and distribution of our products worldwide. This should allow for more scientists and engineers to have access to our leading fiber-optic probes for spectroscopic analysis.”

Andrew Shubin, Vice-President of Ostec, said “Ostec is excited to support the sales activities of art photonics as part of our broader product portfolio in the spectroscopic and analytical instrumentation field.”

Steve Barnett, Founder and President of Barnett Technical Services, said “we have worked with customers who have implement art photonics probes for many years. The opportunity to work closer with Ostec and art photonics in the North American market is very exciting for our business and enables us to offer these excellent products to our customers.” Further information on this agreement will be available from Steve Barnett at Pittcon 2020 (contact info below).
