OPG has stopped offering a centering station using a rotary table to establish an axis in space to which to align optical system. Rather we now offer a centering station that uses an Axicon grating to create the axis.
CALIBALL™ I & CALIBALL™ II - NOW AVAILABLE
Directly from Optiper.com
It is now possible to buy both versions of the CaliBall right here on this website.
The Optical Society offered Robert (Bob) Parks an opportunity to share his stories of excitement and inspiration in a couple of short videos.
For the last three years Optical Perspectives Group, LLC (OPG) had a licensing agreement with Trioptics-USA to manufacture and sell OPG products exclusively world-wide.
USING THE CALIBALL™
Using the CaliBallTM to calibrate interferometer transmission or reference spheres using the random ball test is almost fool proof.
However, observing a few simple precautions will improve the results of the calibration.
As I explained two months ago about the licensing agreement with Trioptics-USA to manufacture and sell the Point Source Microscope (PSM) and MicroFinish Topographer (MFT), this gives me time to develop new applications for both instruments and to consult on applying those applications. I am pleased to say that the applications spawned by customer inquiries and my own curiosity have led to four papers that will be presented this summer and fall. See the March Newsletter for the venues, titles and abstracts of the papers.
Upcoming Conferences and Meetings with papers from OPG
As many of you know, and perhaps wondered why, Optical Perspectives Group (OPG) has exclusively licensed the sale and manufacture of the Point Source Microscope (PSM) and MicroFinish Topographer (MFT) to Davidson Optronics, a division of Trioptics-USA.
This webinar with Robert Parks is presented by the OSA Systems and Instrumentation Technical Group.
