1. Beamsplitters for High Power Laser Applications

    PG&O’s latest beamsplitter offering features a 200:1 extinction ratio, thus maximizing the split between S&P polarization. This can be a critical factor in many different high-power level tasks, particularly for applications up to 10J/cm2 pulsed and continuous wave.

  2. Raman Filters

    In Raman spectroscopy applications, emitted light is very close in wavelength range to the excitation light. In order to attenuate a laser’s signal from reaching the detector while at the same time transmitting the weak emitted light signal, notch or edge pass Raman filters are required. Because of their high transmittance and extended deep blocking, Raman laser line filters are also required to ensure that only the desired wavelength is actually illuminating the sample being tested. This page provides an overview of Iridian Spectral Technologies' line of filters for Raman spectroscopy.

    Andor’s iXon series of deep-cooled, vacuum-sealed, quantitative EMCCD Cameras are ideal for fluorescence microscopy, calcium signaling, live cell microscopy, photon counting, adaptive optics, lucky astronomy, and other low-light level applications.

  4. Scientific EMCCD Camera: iXon Ultra 897

    Andor’s iXon Ultra 897 is an EMCCD camera with 56 FPS (full frame) frame rate and 512 x 512 pixel resolution, making it ideal for low-light level applications like super-resolution microscopy, single photon counting, ion signaling, adaptive optics, single molecule tracking, lucky astronomy, and cell motility.

  5. Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Imaging For Hyperspectral And Surveillance Systems

    Imaging in the short wave infrared (SWIR) wavelength band (0.9um to 2.5um) has generated much attention in recent years with new applications and mission development. Advancements in SWIR sensor and infrared focal plane array (IRFPA) technologies have been the primary drivers to growing interest in areas such as conventional surveillance imaging and other hyperspectral imaging applications. This article touches on two key applications for SWIR detection.

  6. Comparing Spectrometers: StellarNet vs. The Competition

    Over the past few years, a growing amount of miniature spectrometers have become available. This overview compares StellarNet’s spectrometers to other manufacturers’ models where ruggedness, signal-to-noise ratio, linearity, reciprocity testing, wavelength stability, speed, and more.
