More news from Optique Henri Peter, in all its sectors of activity, in France and abroad.

The Indus-2 imaging beamline at the Indian Synchrotron Source is equipped with an Optique Peter White Beam Microscope.

Thanks to an improved penetration, an achievement of high resolution, high SNR, reduced exposure time, high frame rate and 3D imaging, the Raja Ramanna Centre for Advanced Technology (RRCAT) team has successfully demonstrated the capabilities of white beam based X-Ray imaging.

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.

Let’s meet at our booth !
Xavier Rochet, President of Optique Peter will also present the Design and operation of optical equipment dedicated to Post Irradiation Examination (PIE) in Hot Laboratories, on September 9th at 13.00, room C5. Hope to see you there !
Until we meet, we invite you to know more about our Nuclear Hot Laboratories activity

September 2019

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..

July 2019

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.
