LightPath invites you to visit them at Booth #1451 and be among the first to
see LightPath's new:

  oThermal imaging assemblies with diamond-like coatings
  oGreen lenses: Molded glass aspheric optics optimized to provide high
    transmission and improved performance for green diode lasers
  oConnectorized collimators: Product line expanded to include 405nm and
    633nm wavelengths, new choices for a variety of beam sizes, and a more
    rugged, improved glass optic
  oLong Wave InfraRed (LWIR) collimating optics: New long wavelength
    collimating lenses designed to collimate quantum cascade lasers

On May 1st, at 9:40 AM, Ray J. Pini will be presenting a paper entitled "A
Practical Approach to LWIR Wafer-based Optics for Thermal Imaging Systems."
The paper will compare a typical high volume thermal imaging design
manufactured from discrete lens elements to a similar design optimized for
manufacture through a wafer-based approach. The presentation will explore both
performance and cost trade-offs, as well as review the manufacturability of
all designs using LightPath's molding process.

Jim Gaynor, LightPath CEO, stated, "We are looking forward to seeing OEMs,
partners, and prospects at this important industry event. We are particularly
looking forward to the opportunity to have Ray Pini discuss the benefits and
value of LightPath's wafer-based molding process for thermal imaging systems."

DSS is considered the industry's leading meeting for scientists, researchers
and engineers from industry, military, government agencies, and academia
throughout the world. The event features 55 co-located technical conferences,
more than 500 exhibiting companies and agencies and attracts more than 6,500
top scientists, engineers and product developers.
