Dedicated optical systems of the Institute of Applied Optics

Dariusz Litwin, Jacek Galas, Marek Daszkiewicz, Tadeusz Kryszczyński, Adam Czyżewski, Kamil Radziak


The paper presents a collection of selected optical systems recently developed in the Institute of Applied Optics-INOS. The collection includes the family of techniques where the continuously modified wavelength facilitates high accuracy measurements of optical and geometrical features of the object in question i.e. the variable wavelength interferometry and confocal chromatic sensors. In addition, the paper refers to the construction of a new type of a spectrometer with rotating plasma and an illumination system supporting the road safety.
