Photonics versus Sports
What is the role of optical components in sports?
We are all well aware about the myriad of applications in industry and research. However, many somewhat unusual applications - such as in sports - are out there waiting to be explored.
In light of upcoming international sporting events, we wanted to take a closer look at the latest optical analysis and measurement tools and how they enhance our athletes’ performance level. The outcome of this research was very exciting. Optoelectronic is key to measure run-up velocity in pole vaulting, running speed and correct bicycle alignment. IR measurements contribute to breath gas analysis for the overall health of athletes and air quality in stadiums for spectators.
But this is not all. You have been loyal readers of our Photonics News and we have used the same format for many years. We have been working hard behind the scenes to provide you something new. It needed to be inspiring with new content, bringing it all together in a joyful magazine style.
Take a first look. We cannot wait to indulge you in this new and exciting world.
