What is OPTICAL ENGINEERING? What does OPTICAL ENGINEERING mean? OPTICAL ENGINEERING meaning - OPTICAL ENGINEERING definition - OPTICAL ENGINEERING explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Optical engineering is the field of study that focuses on applications of optics. Optical engineers design components of optical instruments such as lenses, microscopes, telescopes, and other equipment that utilizes the properties of light. Other devices include optical sensors and measurement systems, lasers, fiber optic communication systems, optical disc systems (e.g. CD, DVD), etc. Because optical engineers want to design and build devices that make light do something useful, they must understand and apply the science of opt...
The University of Arizona College of Optical Sciences is one of the premier educational and research institutions in optics and photonics worldwide. We focus on educating outstanding students with a broad foundation in all areas of optics and on providing practical experience and highly competitive technical skills. Our research program spans from optical engineering to fundamental optical physics, from photonics to image science, and provides unique opportunities to pursue cutting-edge applications of optics in real systems. Our graduates become professors, scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs, working in academia, industry, government and business around the globe.
SPIE asked leaders in the optics and photonics community to give some advice to students interested in the field. Astronomers, professors, CEOs, a Nobel Prize winner, and others all give their answer to the question, "What advice would you give to a student or young professional interested in optics and/or photonics?" This is a small collection of their responses.
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.
This video shows the latest carrot grading and sorting technology in action at one of the UK’s larger producers and processors of carrots, potatoes and combinable crops, M H Poskitt Ltd. Better known as Poskitts, the forward-thinking vegetable producer and processor has chosen leading handling equipment manufacturer Tong Engineering to design a new carrot handling facility in-line with their business objectives of long-term growth, whilst minimising crop wastage. Designed to incorporate the latest optical sorting equipment, the new carrot handling facility is currently being installed on-site at M H Poskitt Ltd in Goole, East Yorkshire, and is set to offer fully automated sorting of Poskitts’ over 1000 tons of carrots each week. The new Tong carrot sorting facility will handle Poskitts w...
L’azienda è in grado di realizzare impianti per la lavorazione su scala industriale di ogni varietà di frutta, tropicale e mediterranea, pomodoro per ottenere prodotti come nettari, succhi naturali, succhi concentrati, purée, triturato, frutta sciroppata, ketchup, salse, marmellate. Tropical Food Machinery offre una vasta gamma di linee multi-frutta partendo da una capacità di lavorazione minima come nel caso di impianti pilota o impianti miniaturizzati su piattaforma o impianti mobili che sono di facile uso e trasporto, fino ad arrivare ad impianti di grande capacità, completamente automatizzati e controllati da sistema di supervisione SCADA e controllo a distanza

In the Photonics and Optics Laboratory in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, researchers investigate nanophotonics — manipulating light at the nanoscale, and intense light pulses in materials, or nonlinear optics. Assistant Professor Nathaniel Kinsey, Ph.D., and Ümit Özgür, Ph.D., Qimonda Associate Professor and Graduate Program Director of the department, explain.
This lecture on optical fibre includes: 1- What is an optical fibre? 2- Structure and working of the optical fibre 3- optical fibre communication process 4- Types of optical fibers (Single Mode Fiber and Multi Mode Fibre) 5- Benefits of optical fibers 6-Losses in optical fibre 7-Dispersion in optical fibre 1.What is an Optical Fibre? For more details you can visit my BLOG- http://www.engineeringmadeeasypro.com/ An optical fiber is a flexible and transparent fiber which is made by drawing glass (silica) or plastic. Optical fiber has a diameter slightly thicker than that of a human hair. 2.Structure and Working of the Optical Fibre Optical fibers are made of glass or plastic. Most optical fibers used in communication have diameter of 0.25 mm to 0.5 mm including outer coating. Optical Fib...

The most up to date totally digital technology allows quick and efficient grading. Picture aquisition is by a double synchronised digital camera by infrared and colour .By recognising colour a sample can be sorted 'light from dark' thus enhancing the product and giving added value. Defects and form can also be graded. Colour Grading - By recognising colour a sample can be sorted 'light from dark' thus enhancing the product and giving added value.
