High-resolution wavefront sensors help improve the alignment of the optical systems involving lasers; control and predict the shape of laser beams; measure collimation of the beam and detect the tiniest aberrations caused by optical elements in the optical setup, thus protecting sensitive components of laser chains.
Software commonly used for data acquisition, instrument control and industrial automation was an element in structural health monitoring systems used to measure stability, reliability and livability of venues built for the 2008 Summer Olympics held in Beijing, China.

A new approach has been developed that is conceptually very simple: to combine the strengths of two different measuring principles without allowing the restrictions to accumulate. Solutions applying this concept are being called “dual sensors,” because two existing sensors-each using different measurement principles-are combined and the signal outputs evaluated together.
TESco Associates Inc., a developer of bio-absorbable polymeric medical implants, has implemented an OptiGauge thickness measurement system from Lumetrics, resulting in dramatically reduced product development time for complex medical tubing.
Wanders Metaalproducten B.V. has manufactured fireplaces, stoves and storage units for 40 years. After purchasing a computer numerical control (CNC) punch in 1986, which was programmed manually, they purchased a CNC laser two years later and decided to purchase a single computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) system to drive the two.
North Star’s X-View ISG Inspection Services Group was contacted with an exciting and unusual request. The Science Museum of Minnesota wanted X-ray images of a fossilized Jurassic-period crocodile skull that had been discovered on a ranch in Wyoming.
