We are proud to have such determined and optimistic people on our staff!
The challenges and roadblocks of this past year have prompted us to reflect on how and why we do business. It’s made us revisit our core values – innovation, efficiency, and sustainability – and work to ensure that our vision is manifesting itself in all aspects of the company. In turn, we’ve decided to reassess our blog and social media platforms. With a new strategy at hand, we are excited to start publishing more content that puts you and your needs first. So… what can you expect from our marketing team in 2021?
First, Behind the Science will have a new schedule. You can expect one weekly post publishing every Friday in the afternoon. The blog will also be shifting its focusing and will include more content related to our buyers’ processes, FAQs, news and events, and employee spotlights. Make sure to follow us on Instagram if you’d like to suggest a blog topic or have your question answered on Behind the Science. We will be gathering a lot of insight and feedback through this platform, so if you have any ideas for new additions and edits to the blog, make sure you tune in!
Many of our social media platforms will be seeing some exciting changes. You can expect more activity, more interactive posts, and more opportunities to get to know the people behind Omega Optical. We cannot wait to share more of our story, processes, and products with you as soon as possible. In fact, today we’d like to share a few guides that will make sure you feel confident in your purchase from Omega Optical. Keep reading to learn more!
The Angle of Incidence (AOI) is a key specification in many filter applications. This guide gives customers insight into optimizing AOI and cone angle requirements. We address the differences between the specifications and why they matter for interference filters.
You may be familiar with Optical Density (OD) used in colorimetric assays or chemistry experiments. It is used to calculate the concentration of a compound using Beers Law. By contrast, in an interference filter, almost no light is absorbed by the materials the filter was manufactured with. Use this guide to understand blocking in an interference filter and what needs to be considered when specifying for your application.
Mirrors can be used to steer or focus light, reject specific wavelengths, and combine wavelengths in imaging and other applications. So, what factors do you need to consider when choosing a mirror? This technote will guide you through specifications and the function of mirrors so that you can feel good about the mirror you purchase.
Interference filters can get expensive due to competing requirements when it comes to manufacturing them. This guide is a tool to understand why your filter may be priced the way it is. If you have any questions regarding your filter specifications, contact us! We would be happy to discuss your filter and application.
Here's to a new year! We can't wait to keep growing and working with you in 2021.
