Tring, UK — Specialised Imaging reports on how the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology eV is using an optimised version of its SIM Framing Camera to make ultra fast UV measurements of the mechanism of plasma being used to modify the electrical properties of polymer films.

The Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology eV (INP Greifswald) is the largest non-university research institute conducting basic research into and investigating the applications of low temperature plasmas.

In addition to the application-oriented basic research, the INP Greifswald promotes the development of plasma-supported processes and products. The Institute conducts research and development from idea to prototype. Continue reading

Measure the advantage!

25 years of AICON 3D Systems GmbH

AICON_LogoBraunschweig, Germany – Optical, camera-based 3D metrology has become a standard in many industrial areas. Far more than 4.000 of the installed 3D measuring systems worldwide are from AICON 3D Systems.

For 25 years now, the company has developed, manufactured and supplied 3D metrology for various applications.

“In the first place, we wanted to name our company ICON. That sounded fitting, as the word means ’image‘ in Greek. Because of trademark issues, it wasn’t possible; an image processing company already carried that name. However, we liked the sound of the word. We simply put an A in front: AICON. The sound is the same, and it has an advantage: We are always on top in alphabetic company lists.”
