CORNING, N.Y. — Corning Incorporated (NYSE: GLW) announced today that it will showcase an expanded portfolio of Advanced Optics products at Photonics West 2019, one of the industry’s largest tradeshows dedicated to photonic technologies. The show is Feb. 4-7 at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California.
Corning is exhibiting a variety of products from multiple product lines at the show including:
· Semiconductor manufacturing materials
· Optical materials for OLED devices
· Laser optics for lithography
· Precision and inspection optics for OEM applications
· Metrology instruments for surface measurements
· Laser technologies for laser processing of micro materials
· Specialty fiber and glass polarizers for telecommunications
· Aerospace and defense capabilities for astronomy applications and more
· Hyperspectral imaging for small, lightweight imaging sensors
· Wafer-level optic solutions for precise 3D sensing
· Corning® Varioptic® Lenses for adjustable lens solutions
This year, Corning’s booth will introduce two new products. Polarcor™ 0.12mm capitalizes on the market-leading performance of Polarcor™ in a new, thinner format. Polarcor 0.12mm was developed for applications in the telecommunications and data communications sectors where thin form factors and high-performance polarizers are required to save space in data centers and offer design flexibility for higher-speed communication.
The MicroHSI™ 425 sensor is a miniaturized, lightweight hyperspectral imaging (HSI) solution. The MicroHSI 425 is the first and only commercially available 400-2500 nm HSI solution that does not require two sensors.
Demonstrations in Corning’s Booth #1265 will show:
· Precise 3D sensing for facial recognition with Corning Wafer Level Optic Solutions
· The importance of durable optics for laser applications
A focus this year at the booth will be Corning’s capabilities and solutions for the semiconductor manufacturing industry.
“Corning is proud that our world-leading portfolio of optical materials and technology solutions is a key enabler for critical semiconductor processes such as lithography, process control, and flatness metrology. Customers seek us out for our expertise in durable crystal and glass materials, metrology instruments, and precision optical systems,” said Cassandra Taliaferro, business director of Corning Advanced Optics. “We are excited to showcase these capabilities and more this year at Photonics West.”
Corning will also showcase Corning® Varioptic® Lenses which are recognized as market leaders in adjustable lens solutions. Corning® Varioptic® Lenses enable fast, robust, and reliable variable focus for demanding focusing applications that range from a short distance to infinity. These properties make them particularly suited for industrial applications, but they can also benefit healthcare and medical technologies.
Corning Advanced Optics leverages Corning’s experience in glass science and optical physics to solve our customers’ optical challenges through customized design and cutting-edge optical materials and full-systems. These capabilities include high-quality materials like Corning ULE® and HPFS® as well as metrology capabilities, automated laser glass-cutting, and optical design expertise.
