All our products include PixelScope™ Software, a real-time powerful, easy to use, image analysis program for optical engineers.

BENEFITS:

  • The software is intuitive and easy to learn. Most people require little or no training to feel comfortable using PixelScope™.
  • The software is powerful. PixelScope™ can measure a long list of parameters of interest to an optical engineer.
  • The software is flexible. The unique “Optical Layout” window provides a graphical, easy to understand way to define the measurement setup. After that, PixelScope™ takes care of scaling factors and unit conversion.
  • PixelScope™ is accurate. The algorithms in PixelScope™ have been validated by years of use in the field. In addition, most Wells Research optical benches include hardware to allow self-validation.
  • Comprehensive built-in help.

PixelScope™OpticStudio

Our flagship product, with a powerful suite of tools for measuring image quality and lens parameters.

PixelScope-OpticStudio

PixelScope-OpticStudio

PixelScope™Pro

An entry level product for engineers who need to make precise measurements of position and intensity, but who do not need MTF and other tools specific to lens testing.

PixelScope™Remote Server

OPS-Remote Server allows you to completely control PixelScope from your own program written in Visual Basic or LabView.

PS-Remote Server exposes 100% of the functionality of PixelScope, making it possible to create powerful, maintainable programs for your operators. Code required to add PixelScope to your VB program is shown in blue.

PixelScope-Pro

SOFTWARE CAPABILITIES:

  • View images in real time. Pan and zoom down to the individual pixel level.
  • Apply powerful image analysis “tools” to selected areas of the image.
  • Load images from camera, disk or clipboard. Save all or part of image to clipboard or disk as image or array of intensity values.

Example: using the “MTF Wizard” to compute MTF from image of narrow line.

WHAT CAN YOU DO WITH PIXELSCOPE™ SOFTWARE?

VIEW THE IMAGE FORMED BY AN OPTICAL SYSTEM
An optical engineer can tell a great deal about the performance of an optical system just by looking at the image as the system moves through focus. PixelScope™ is designed to make this easy to do. You may pan and zoom down to the individual pixel level.

MEASURE THE LOCATION OF FEATURES WITHIN THE IMAGE
PixelScope™ permits measurement of the location of arbitrary features within an image with sub-micron accuracy. Results may be viewed as a numerical value, or plotted -vs- time.

MEASURE IMAGE QUALITY
MTF is now the accepted way of measuring and reporting image quality. PixelScope™ supports MTF measurement from 3 types of target (pinhole, narrow line, and edge).

MEASURE IMAGE QUALITY (3-BAR CONTRAST)
PixelScope™ can measure contrast, using 3-bar targets, removing the issue of operator subjectivity. Measure lens parameters PixelScope™ measures lens focal length automatically with a few mouse clicks. PixelScope™ also makes it easy to measure image plane location, depth-of-field, field curvature, etc. By changing narrow band filters, it is possible to measure chromatic characteristics such as axial and lateral color.

MEASURE LENS PARAMETERS
PixelScope™ measures lens focal length automatically with a few mouse clicks. PixelScope™ also makes it easy to measure image plane location, depth-of-field, field curvature, etc. By changing narrow band filters, it is possible to measure chromatic characteristics such as axial and lateral color.

EVALUATE LENS ABERRATIONS
The optical engineer often thinks of a lens in terms of the classical 7 lens aberrations: Spherical aberration, Coma, Astigmatism, Field curvature, Distortion, Axial color, Lateral color. PixelScope™ permits the optical engineer to visually identify of all these aberrations.

DOCUMENT YOUR RESULTS
It is easy to export both pictures and numerical values from PixelScope. All results calculated by all tools may be exported to the clipboard in a form that can be pasted directly into Excel.

Example: Measuring image location vs time to evaluate thermal drift in an optics setup. Over a period of 5 minutes the image moved by 0.006 pixel.

Example: Measurement of MTF at 50, 100, 200 and 400 lines per mm at multiple field points.
Example: Measurement of MTF at 50, 100, 200 and 400 lines per mm at multiple field points.
Example: Two images formed by a microscope lens, with 5 micron change in focus between images.

Example: Measuring contrast of USAF target. For the skeptical, 3 bar contrast measurements provide an independent demonstration that the powerful, but perhaps less intuitive, MTF measurements are indeed correct.
