Vision platform gives a new look to optics research

21 May 2024

An advanced test platform from Liquid Instruments is now available for Apple Vision Pro, providing the first interactive 3D test system for optics researchers. Efficiency in the laboratory is markedly enhanced by integrating the Moku system with camera-based vision equipment.

The Moku platform harnesses the processing power of field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) to deliver an entire suite of instruments, including oscilloscopes and lock-in amplifiers, and quickly adapt to new technologies. With visionOS, Moku users have a new way to access instruments in addition to existingSource: Liquid InstrumentsSource: Liquid Instruments Windows, macOS, iPadOS and Python support.

Users can leverage hand and eye gestures to interact with multiple instruments and accelerate testing in optics, photonics and quantum research labs without the need for monitors. The combined deployment of Moku and Apple Vision Pro enables optics and photonics researchers to modify and monitor their experiments from multiple screens embedded in the real world, fully untethered from the lab bench. Moku can also operate alongside other applications to share data with colleagues or reference key documentation to boost productivity.

With periodic software updates and the ability to integrate with new technologies like visionOS, the Moku platform is positioned to accelerate optics, photonics and quantum research.
