ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the use of optical systems in industrial applications. Ian Johnstone of Armstrong Optical stated that production speeds are fast that the only possible choice left is non-contact measurement. He identified the rugged and non-powered optical detectors that are being produced by optics manufacturers. According to the author, several manufacturers offer birefringence measurement systems in order to evaluate the quality of optical materials.
