Ball Lenses

Deposition Sciences, Santa Rosa, CA, has released Iso-SphereTM Antireflection (AR) Coated Ball Lenses for fiber optics, telecom, and datacom applications. The ball lenses are an optical method for collimating the output of an optical fiber or laser diode and can be used in fiber-to-fiber, diode-to-fiber, and fiber-to-detector coupling tasks. DSI’s IsoDynTM low-pressure chemical vapor deposition technology creates a uniformity of the AR coating, eliminating the need for orientation of the lens in the customer’s device.

Creating Geospatial Content with Photogrammetry Software

Over the last decade, the unprecedented population growth rates throughout much of the world and the subsequent need for information to support and manage that growth has put more pressure than ever before on geographical information system (GIS) and production mapping professionals. Businesses and planners need more up-to-date information than ever before, so much so that photogrammetry production “factories” can work 24/7 and still find it a challenge to keep up with the increasing volume of work.
