  • Affordable High Pulse Energy Ultrafast Laser Design

    High energy ultrafast lasers are tools which could enable technological solutions at a completely new level. But why are high pulse energy femtosecond lasers so expensive and how can we bring the price down? I propose a design which could enable a 5x-10x price drop.
  • High Resolution 1024 x 1820 SWIR Snapshot Camera on the Cheap

    In the last years I got obsessed with spectral imaging. I did hyperspectral imaging with a cheap pushbroom imager, SWIR-VNIR hyperspectral data eva...
  • Vision Underwater with Correction Lens (Instead of Swimming Goggles)

    How our eyes work is that the different tissues inside act as a lens/lenses and create an image of objects on the retina. Going under water with op...
  • Fiber Laser Galvanometer Scanner - A simple simulation model

    Galvanometer scanners are often used for laser marking, engraving, cutting .. purposes. The system itself is optically a rather simple assembly: tw...
  • How to do (Near-) Infrared Photography - DIY Optics

    Infrared photography is just simply otherworldly. What people probably like around it, that it's real but at the same time it just looks like it's ...
  • PRISMA Hyperspectral Satellite Imagery Download and Evaluation

    In this short blog post I will show you the steps of downloading satellite images from PRISMA database and will say a few words about evaluation. T...
  • DIY Hyperspectral Imaging VIS-NIR

    There are a couple of approaches to hyperspectral imaging, in this post we will look at my (partially) DIY solution for a portable pushbroom hypers...
  • Line Scan Camera Fun - Cars

    Line Scan cameras may appear to be less then their 2D sensor type siblings, but this is definitely not the case - they just need a bit more care.  ...
  • PCX Lens Orientation Note

      This is a rather basic thing in the optics world, but it is sure hard to believe that just placing a lens in a beam line one or the other directi...
  • Laser Engraving Overview

    Introduction There are a lot of different laser engraver (marker) systems available to buy. To select the right one, one needs to answer a few que...
