SPIE Industry Workshop Program February 06, 2019: How to Get the Most Out of Optics, Lasers, and Detectors
Bedford, NH: Part of Photonics West, the industry’s most important photonics technologies event, LASER COMPONENTS will be hosting a one-day workshop on the essential properties and working principles of a wide variety of optics and optoelectronic components. The program is designed for those who would like to be more familiar with the advantages and challenges of these technologies, as well as the trade-offs. The primary goal is to develop a better understanding of how to specify the right device and set the optimal device performance in a given application.
Participants can select one or more 30-minute sessions throughout the day, depending on the interest. LASER COMPONENTS product development engineers and guest speakers will be talking about specific topics centered around three major subject matters:
- Optics: fundamentals of digital optics with spatial light modulators, insights into laser induced damage threshold and high-power laser optics, golden rules of custom laser optics coatings, and key parameters of polarizers
- Lasers: working principles of flash LiDAR detectors and technology, design solutions of transimpedance amplifiers for photodiodes to maximize the range of LiDAR systems, driving FET-based pulsed laser hybrid circuits for optimized device performance, and unique value propositions of laser-generated white light
- Detectors: working principles and comparison of different IR detector, and IR Detector nonlinearity correction
