In recent years, TNO has been working on the development of an optical biosensor, a device that can analyse a drop of blood to determine whether someone has, for example, an infectious disease. It is now time to move from a proof of concept to...

In the manufacturing of chips, contamination with even the smallest of particles leads to an unusable product. To prevent this, it is essential to detect contamination at the nanoscale. Dutch Optics Centre and Lans Engineering have developed the ‘Fast-micro’ particle scanner, which can be used...

Dutch Optics Centre and Demcon have jointly developed NANOMEFOS, an advanced measuring instrument for freeform optical surfaces. Dutch United Instruments, or DUI for short, was founded to market this unique product. Demcon is a high-end technology supplier of products and systems, focusing on high-tech systems and...

The Netherlands Photonics cluster will, as in recent years, be present at the coming SPIE Photonics West on February 4th till February 8th in San Francisco. The Dutch Companies will present themselves on the Netherlands Photonics Avenue. We hope to see you at booth number...

The photonics network from Thuringia Optonet is organizing the International Summer School: Advanced Lens Design. From June 17 to 21, 2019, which is intended to provide high professional practical training. It aims at technicians, engineers and researchers who are involved in optical systems design of...

The Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) has announced which new research programmes may start in the so-called 'Perspective for the Top Sectors' programme. A total of six public-private programmes will receive about 28 million euros. The project is about achieving higher resolution and sensitivity...

More than 75 scientists can now start working on new innovations, together with the business community and social organizations. This is done within six major research programs, for which they get the green light today. The research focuses on the development of stronger lettuce varieties,...

Light in interaction with matter, electrons or atoms Optics Optics is still very much alive and is a fascinating subject to study and to pursue a career in. Examples of exciting topics are e.g. holography and optical cloacking. Optics also has many applications and is very important...

The importance of precision technology for the industry will rise in the next coming years. Upcoming developments as greater precision and far-reaching miniaturization are the main reason for this to happen. These technologies are developing fast and the limit is far from being reached. This...

Optical components and subsystems are key elements in diverse systems and markets…. Optical components, such as lenses and mirrors, are the basic components integrated into various systems such as scanners, measurement instruments, imaging and laser equipment. Some of the major users of optical components can be...
