Retinal Hand Held Oximeter – The Corimapper

Focal and DEMCON developed a prototype retinal oximeter with a hand held functionality. The Corimapper simultaneously images the fundus with two well defined wavelength bands. The light absorbance is used to estimate the vessel oxygenation saturation.  A NIR led light source is used to align the camera with the retina and Xe flash light source is used to generate a short light pulse of few milliseconds.  We are very proud that […]

Work in progress: Smart Micromachining

The European ADALAM project aims to develop a sensor-based adaptive micromachining system for zero-failure manufacturing, based on ultrashort-pulse laser ablation and a novel depth measurement sensor, together with advanced data analysis software and automated system calibration routines. The technology developed will generate new solutions for manufacturing of high-quality and innovative products, such as adaptive micromilling of 2.5D structures, defect detection and removal, and texturing of complex tool features. Miniaturisation, advanced highperformance materials and functional surface structures are all drivers […]
