IPEVO has released the Microscope Adapter Set, an add-on accessory for their Point 2 View USB Document Camera. This accessory enables the camera to capture video directly from a microscope's eyepiece. Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) May 14, 2013 Chemistry professors, high school science teachers, and other educators now have a new way to share the tiny world underneath the microscope. Ed tech company IPEVO has just announced the newest add-on accessory for their popular Point 2 View USB Document...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers have created a new digital camera using a design that mimics ocular systems found in dragonflies, bees, praying mantises and other insects. This class of technology offers exceptionally wide-angle fields of view, with low aberrations, high acuity to motion, and a virtually infinite depth of field. The devices exploit large arrays of tiny focusing lenses and miniaturized detectors in hemispherical layouts —...

Human Eye Gives Visionary Design For New, More Natural Lens Technology

Optical Society of America Drawing heavily upon nature for inspiration, a team of researchers has created a new artificial lens that is nearly identical to the natural lens of the human eye. This innovative lens, which is made up of thousands of nanoscale polymer layers, may one day provide a more natural performance in implantable lenses to replace damaged or diseased human eye lenses, as well as consumer vision products; it also may lead to superior ground and aerial surveillance...

Scientists are reporting development of a revolutionary new lens – flat, distortion-free, so small that more than 1,500 would fit across the width of a human hair – capable in the future of replacing lenses in applications ranging from cell phones to cameras to fiber-optic communication systems. The advance, which could lead to smart phones as thin as a credit card, appears in ACS' journal Nano Letters. Federico Capasso and colleagues explain that the lenses used to focus light...

Perfect Image Offered By Flat Lens

Ultrathin wafer of silicon and gold focuses telecom wavelengths without distortion Applied physicists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have created an ultrathin, flat lens that focuses light without imparting the distortions of conventional lenses. At a mere 60 nanometers thick, the flat lens is essentially two-dimensional, yet its focusing power approaches the ultimate physical limit set by the laws of diffraction. Operating at telecom wavelengths...

A magnifying glass is a convex lens, usually mounted in a frame with a handle, which is used to produce a magnified image of an object. The glass works by creating a magnified virtual image of an object behind the lens. However, the distance between the lens and the object must be shorter than the focal length for the glass to work. If the distance is not correct then the image will appear small and inverted. Many magnifying glasses are mounted on a stand to insure the proper distance...
