Introduction to Reverse Engineering

Reverse optical engineering, also known as reverse engineering in optics, is the process of taking an existing optical component or system, analyzing it, and replicating it to create a similar or improved product. This technique is useful when the original design is not available or when improvements need to be made to an existing product. […]

How to Read an Optical Drawing

An optical drawing is a detailed plan that allows us to manufacture optical components according to a design and given specifications. When optical designers and engineers come up with a design, they condense it in an optical drawing that can be understood by manufacturers anywhere.  ISO 10110 is the most popular standard for optical drawing. […]

Lossless Image Compression Example

For storage and transmission of large image files it is desirable to reduce the file size. For consumer-grade images this is achieved by lossy image compression when image details not very noticeable to humans are discarded. However, for scientific images discarding any image details may not be acceptable. Still, all the images, except completely random […]
