Established in August 2014. The founding team gathered talents from cross fields such as optics, materials, physics, and information, introducing novel optical design concepts in optical engineering. Southport's goal is to combine traditional optics with digital optics to create inspection systems that are more simplified, modularized and digitized.
What is Digital Optics?
Unlike traditional optics using lenses or mechanical components to manipulate the properties and direction of light, digital optics (and hens software-defined optics) uses programmable optoelectronic devices to control light. With fewer mechanical components and lenses, digital optics performs higher efficiency, consistency, and operability in many microscopy applications that need different optical fields for identifying specific features of the sample.
