White papers

This White Paper details why data is the core of any deep learning-based application, and that the tools for managing data and working with the deep learning algorithm are paramount to obtaining good results.

This white paper presents a first-ever automated approach to digitalize spectral properties found on forensic trace carriers. By using high-performance Excelitas lenses and AI-driven software the few deviating traces on a trace carrier can be identified which can be decisive to solve a crime. Such traces are called rare traces in forensics.

Liquid lenses are arguably among the most interesting technological innovations in the field of optics and have also attracted a lot of attention in machine vision. In this white paper, we will discuss how Opto Engineering integrates liquid lenses into different types of optics to give them particular characteristics.
