The paper presents an analysis of the impact of spectral properties of spectroradiometer electro-optical bench (ie. diffraction grating, CCD detector) on the measurement accuracy of spectral power distribution of light sources. Analysis were performed for electro-optical spectroradiometric systems which were built on different combinations of diffraction gratings and detektors. © Wydawnictwo SIGMA - N O T Sp. z o.o.

The preliminary outcomes of investigations concern a sensor of explosive materials vapours are presented. In the sensor concentration measurements of nitrogen oxides with cavity enhanced absorption spectroscopy method (CEAS) is applied. It is one of the most sensitive optoelectronic gas detection technique. There are two diagnostics lanes provide to parallely detect both nitric oxide (NO) and nitrous oxide (N2O) trace concentrations. To achive high sensitivity there will be used two quantum cascade lasers (QCL), the lasing wavelength of which will be from ranges: 5.23μm-5.29μm (for NO) and 4.46μm-4.48μm (for N2O).

The excitation source consists of at least three identical electrodes arranged symmetrically in relation to the axis of the central tube, which supplies an analytical sample, and electrode cooling agent supply and removal systems. The electrodes are mounted in an electrically isolated metal housing so that the electrode tops are placed at the central tube outlet, and their ends are shorted in the power supply point with the microwave connections embedded in the housing on the extension of the electrode longitudinal axis and the connections are coupled with the microwave power source, the length of each electrode is L, where L is the length of the microwave. Each electrode has a hollowed longitudinal flow chamber for the cooling agent connected with metal side tubes, which supply and remove the cooling agent, while outside tube ends are electrically shorted with the housing.

In Europe 16 Million workers operate in low visibility environments, including roadway construction personnel and vehicle operators, utility workers, survey crews, emergency responders, railway workers and accident site investigators, school crossing guards, parking and toll gate personnel, airport ground crews and law enforcement personnel directing traffic, parking service attendants, workers in warehouses with equipment traffic, shopping cart retrievers, sidewalk maintenance workers, and delivery vehicle drivers, to name a few. Statistics report that every year 6000 are injured by vehicles or human operated equipment, because of a lack of visibility, specially in night time operations. To address this issue and minimise accidents, the EU launched directives 89/656/EEC and 89/686/EEC, which oblige employers to make available high visibility clothes to their employees. State-of-the-Art solutions consist in applying reflective material stripes onto the garment surface. Lion-tex suggests an innovative product for high visibility garments, which exploits the lenticular effect. In the project three objectives are defined: first of all to develop a portfolio of innovative 3D lenticular effects, that will be exploited on 3D surfaces (like textiles) instead of flat substrates; second objective is to develop an industrial plotter for textiles that allows, all at once, the printing of interlaced images made of reflective and fluorescent ink and the deposition of resins through a jetting device for constructing the lenticular layer; finally a new set of high visibility garments will be prototyped, demonstrating not only the higher efficiency of this product in protection, but also the lower cost, with respect to the state of the art, for a stronger SMEs competitiveness.

The dynamic development of the automotive industry, as well as the increasing number of cars enforces continuous improvement of safety of the road user. One of the elements that affects safety on the road is correctly designed and clearly visible regardless of weather conditions, traffic signs and signals. In this article some propositions of practical, modern optical setups, developed in the Institute of Applied Optics and ready for implementation are presented.
