Radioactive

Radioactive Waste – What You Should Know Radioactivity is a major problem in this day and age. Only recently, the Fukushima disaster in Japan highlighted to the world the importance of treating radioactive waste properly. Radioactive waste is generated during the production of nuclear power. When nuclear fission is carried out, radioactive waste is generated.…

Precision Optical Components

Optics is a special branch of physics that deals with light, its properties, and how it interacts with matter. Optics engineers then take this information, and create something useful from it. It’s been often said that the difference between scientists and engineers is that scientists only dream about doing wonderful things…..engineers do them. But to…

Precision Optical Manufacturing

Precision optical manufacturing covers a huge range of fabrication procedures and testing operations. The process of precision optical manufacturing begins with an idea. All stock optical components started out as an idea, and each custom unit for precision optical manufacturing is an idea in progress. Once a design is settled on, then precision optical manufacturing…

Custom Optics

There are many times when a standard model of optical equipment will not perform the functions need for a particular application, such as in certain types of surgery, diagnostic procedures, electronics, security and surveillance, astronomy, military use, and other specialized uses. In this case, a custom manufacturer must be found that can make the custom…

Optical Components Manufacturer

The field of Optics goes back as far as the ancient Egyptians, and Mesopotamians. They may be the world’s oldest optical component manufacturer. Excavations have discovered quartz hand-ground lenses dating back to 700 BC. I am referring to the Layard/Nimrud lens, a 3000 year-old lens that archeologists believe was used by the Assyrians, either as…

Optic Components

Every optical device consists of various optic components that work together to allow the entire unit to perform a specific function. It could be to steer a cruise missile to a precise target from a ship hundreds of miles away, or read the bar-code on that bag of potato chips you just bought at the…
