  • How to Form an Image with an Optical Lens Setup

    Although a common misconception, individual optical lenses do not always form an image when the object plane is placed a focal length away from the lens. Rather, image location is dependent on object location. Join Monica Rainey, Optical Engineer, as she explains focal length and how to form an image with three simple real-world optical lens (http://www.edmundoptics.com/lenses/) setups.

    ABSTRACT In the immortal words of Bob Dylan, "The times they are a changing". Globalization and innovation are driving change at an incredible pace. In this environment of change and development, Engineering has emerged as the renaissance degree program of the 21st century. Optical Engineering is at the center of this renaissance and is one of the sought after integrative and interdisciplinary areas within the field, as we address growing challenges in energy, health care, communications and transportation. Fiber optic communications has been vital to this growth as fibers have become the enabling technology in the information society in which we live. For modern communication systems, fiber technology has matured sufficiently to meet the increasing demands for bandwidth. Simultaneous adva...

  • Apollo: The Alignment Optical Telescope

    Bill describes the Alignment Optical Telescope used in the Lunar Module on the Apollo missions to the moon. This telescope took star sightings which were used to align the Module's guidance system. Bill shows how the telescope used an Archimedes spiral inscribed on its eyepiece to replace the heavy motors, worm gears, and rigid tracks used in a traditional sextant -- this shaved weight from the Lunar Module and allowed it to carry more fuel. You can bundle watch Bill's videos using this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0INsTTU1k2UO-2-AwomFmAs4nuZU9ht3 If you are interested in mechanical computers you'll likely enjoy his series on Albert Michelson's Harmonic Analyzer -- a 19th century machine that calculates Fourier transforms: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL0IN...

However, they also must know what is practical in terms of available technology, materials, costs, design methods, etc. As with other fields of engineering, computers are important to many (perhaps most) optical engineers. They are used with instruments, for simulation, in design, and for many other applications. Engineers often use general computer tools such as spreadsheets and programming languages, and they make frequent use of specialized optical software designed specifically for their field. Optical engineering metrology uses optical methods to measure micro-vibrations with instruments like the laser speckle interferometer or to measure the properties of the various masses with instruments measuring refraction.

ABSTRACT In the immortal words of Bob Dylan, "The times they are a changing". Globalization and innovation are driving change at an incredible pace. In this environment of change and development, Engineering has emerged as the renaissance degree program of the 21st century. Optical Engineering is at the center of this renaissance and is one of the sought after integrative and interdisciplinary areas within the field, as we address growing challenges in energy, health care, communications and transportation. Fiber optic communications has been vital to this growth as fibers have become the enabling technology in the information society in which we live. For modern communication systems, fiber technology has matured sufficiently to meet the increasing demands for bandwidth. Simultaneous advances in semiconductors have provided us with lasers, photo detectors, connectors, switches, and amplifiers to name a few components that have enabled the rapid growth of fiber based communication systems. The systems have matured over time to exploit the bandwidth capacity of optical fibers for a range of applications. This presentation will provide an overview of optical engineering and fiber optic communications so viewers can appreciate the fundamentals of the field and the potential applications, pedagogies and tools, and new areas for research. S. K. Ramesh joined CSUN as Dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science in 2006. The college is home to over 2,800 students and approximately 100 faculty members and offers a wide range of ABET accredited programs in engineering and computer science, and an ACCE accredited program in construction management technology. Earlier, Dr. Ramesh served as a professor and was Department Chair of Electrical Engineering at CSU Sacramento for 19 years. During his tenure there he also served as Special Assistant to the President and Provost to shape the Sacramento State campus' IT initiative that showcased the campus IT capabilities to business and industry.

Washed carrots are received onto the new high-care stainless steel sorting line by a series of elevators and conveyors that feed an impressive seven-line optical carrot sorting system which integrates seven fully automated Visar Sortop optical sorters of which Tong is UK distributor. A sophisticated conveying system receives the sorted crop and transfers graded crop to boxes, bags, or onward for cooling, weighing and packing.
