  • Patent number: 10690545
    Abstract: A hybrid image-pupil optical reformatter and method for optional use with a spectrometer is disclosed, which performs beam slicing in pupil space and stacks replicas of the input source generated from the pupil beam slices in image space. The optical reformatter comprises a collimator which receives an input light and produces a collimated beam; a first optical element which receives the collimated beam, redirects portions of the collimated beam back toward the collimator as reimaged beams and permits portions of the collimated beam to pass; a second optical element which receives the reimaging beams and redirects the reimaging beams back toward the collimator and the first optical element; to form an output beam comprising the portions of the collimated beams that are not redirected toward the collimator by the first optical element. Also disclosed is the use of the reformatter for reformatting the input light of a spectrometer system, and the use of the reformatter as part of a spectrometer device.

  • Publication number: 20190212570
    Abstract: A viewing system includes a first optics system having a first aperture size and a first field of view, and optics that provide a lightpath to a first sensor. The optics system has a second optics system having a second aperture sized to be less than the first aperture size, and a second field of view greater than the first field of view; the second optics system providing a lightpath to a second sensor. Also provided is a display switchable between a first view mode in which a wide field image provided by the second sensor is displayed, and a second view mode in which a narrow field image provided by the first sensor is displayed.
