Thanks to the GigaFROST high-speed camera of Swiss Light Source and our high resolution 4X/0.35 macroscope, the TOMCAT beamline team performed such an impressive fast tomography of the LPBF process: 100 tomograms per second.

This is the first time-resolved tomographic microscopy performed during laser-based powder bed fusion !

Such impressive results in real time tomography at beamline 2-BM of the Advanced Photon Source ! The scientific team uses our Triple Objective microscope to select a region of interest in the 3D volume and swap lens live, providing 3-step zooming while directly looking at the same 3D volume of interest.

Another success for the High-Resolution macroscope 4x/0.35 !

At Paul Scherrer Institut, a high-resolution 3D image of a full and intact rat lung was realized. The team of researchers have indeed used a fast large-volume tomographic imaging method to imaging the rat lung within a very limited time: 22 minutes.

We are pleased to announce the publication of our last research paper: High-numerical-aperture macroscope optics for time-resolved experiments.
At the TOMCAT beamline of the Swiss Light Source at the Paul Scherrer Institut, our high resolution macroscope 4x/0.35 offers increased spatial resolution and very high image quality, unlocking unprecedented possibilities for the tomographic investigations of dynamic processes and radiation-sensitive samples.

Optique Peter delivered a Raman multi-wavelength spectroscopy microscope for glove box to CEA Marcoule; it is linked to an oven for high temperature on-site Raman analyses, and imaging analyses and hardness measurements. A similar system for a hot laboratory cell is currently in development.

September 2018

Optique Peter delivered a very high resolution, very high aperture macroscope for high speed X-ray imaging to the SLS synchrotron in Switzerland (PSI); this macroscope will be used with the GigaFRoST camera (Gigabit Fast Readout System for Tomography) developed by the PSI.
