MEET OUR SUPPORTERS & EXHIBITORS
Leading camera-based motion measurement systems for displacement measurements, motion magnification, vibrations and modal analysis, acoustics, full-filed responses, Schlieren and more.Measure thousands of points simultaneously with sub-micron accuracy!
MotionScope – Visualizing the invisible
Recent times have seen major advances in digital cameras, imaging techniques and visual analysis. Gone are the days of VGA resolution! Cameras now record HD and even 4k. Frame rates above 100 fps are not uncommon in modern consumer devices.
Motion Scope is a modern venture set at developing and implementing new, industry-leading and innovative technologies in the field of computer vision and imaging into easy to understand and intuitive products.
The company evolved from doctoral research on measuring structural vibrations with high-speed cameras. Structures ranging meters in size will exhibit vibrations ranging in microns, but can still be measured with cameras. The technology has proven to be more than prospective and warrant real-world use. This, coupled with mechanical and electrical engineering skill-set and years of high-speed imaging experiences brings us to Motion Scope.
We push the boundaries of what can be visually observed, by: peering into microscopic scales, warping time with high-speed imaging and measuring or visualizing minute motion far bellow the pixel scale with our tracking and motion magnification software.
The company is based in Slovenia (EU) and does business internationally. Our customers are predominately businesses and research institutions.
Optomet is laser vibrometry for
non-contact vibration measurement
Combining state-of-the-art technology and sophisticated design in the development and manufacturing of laser Doppler vibrometers is our mission.
The results are high-precision, user-friendly measurement devices with world class performance.
Using latest generation FPGA-based signal processing and high-sensitivity SWIR laser measurement technology, Optomet defines a new standard for high performance laser Doppler vibrometers.
Optomet systems excel by a consistently digital workflow and can also be seamlessly integrated into existing analog data acquisition environments.
Optomet’s vibrometers allow customers to make the most accurate and efficient non-contact vibration measurements, all without surface treatment.
The Optomet Vector-Micro-Optic is an additional product for the Vector series and enables measurements on the smallest objects due to the extremely small laser spot (approx. 3um). It contains a 12 MP 4K camera so that precise placement of the laser spot on the test object is guaranteed. The Vector-Micro-Optic is ideal for use in electronics development and measurements on electronic components.
- Proven visible HeNe Laser source for precise multi-purpose vibration measurements
- Unmatched dynamic range enables vibration measurements from 0 to 25 MHz
- Extremely small laser spot size (approximately 3 um) for measurements on small objects
- 12 MP 4K camera included in Micro-Optics

- Optional positioning stage for precise alignment of test object and Micro-Optics system
- Compact all-in-one design
Digital Free Beam SWIR Laser Vibrometer
The Nova series is a modern and digital free beam laser Doppler vibrometer (LDV), which works with a SWIR measuring laser (Short-Wavelength-InfraRed; SWIR). The Nova series is essential when every decibel is important for the signal level or exceptional dynamic range is required. Typical scenarios relate to structures that reflect visible light poorly, such as dark and rough surfaces or biological tissue. Even when measuring over long distances, for example in construction or on glowing surfaces such as turbine blades in the aerospace industry or in vehicle and plant construction, the signal strength is crucial.
Measurements on carbon composite panels or other non-cooperative materials can be carried out just as easily as measurements at distances of more than 200 m, without the need to treat the surface of the measurement object.

MSA-650 IRIS Micro System Analyzer – Microscope-based vibrometers
Optical characterization of dynamics on Si-capped MEMS
Visualization of dynamic response is key to testing and developing MEMS devices. This is indispensable for validating FE calculations and determining cross-talk effects. The innovative and patented MSA-650 IRIS Micro System Analyzer allows for measuring true MEMS dynamics by characterizing both in-plane and out-of-plane motions through silicon encapsulation without contact, without need for preparing nor decapping the device. The step of MEMS capping in fabrication processes may result in additional stress, which might alter the device performance. Therefore, a comprehensive characterization of the MEMS device in its final and encapsulated state is needed and indispensible.
VibroGo – Truly portable laser vibration measurement
VibroGo® is the truly portable, battery powered laser vibrometer for field studies and quick and easy condition monitoring of machines and facilities on the go.
This sensor measures the real vibration behavior, acoustics and dynamics of excited structures without contact and directly displays measurement data in the time and frequency domain. VibroGo® even allows on-board analysis in the field, while covering a wide frequency range of up to 320 kHz. Its outstanding resolution, with high linearity across the entire frequency range provides a handy precision analysis tool. Use VibroGo® for a better understanding of dynamics and acoustics in nature and technology – for research, product development and quality assurance.
