TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014
Hamamatsu’s micro PMT is an ultracompact photodetector about the size of a fingertip, with the same characteristics as a conventional photomultiplier tube (PMT). Its small size, robust structure, high sensitivity, low noise, and fast time response make the micro PMT a suitable detector for high-performance portable devices and instruments. In addition, micro PMTs are easily mass produced and customized.
Custom Coatings OptoSigma specializes in custom optical coatings from the ultra-violet to the near infrared, everyday providing a variety of custom coatings from simple modifications of the catalog specifications to entirely specialized designs
Optical Thickness Gauge: 157 Series
The Model 157 Optical Thickness Gauge uses proven optical interferometer technology to measure the absolute thickness of specialty plastic films, medical membranes, and ophthalmic products. High accuracy and exceptional repeatability results in the most reliable measurement available. Straightforward operation and rugged design satisfy the needs of the R&D scientist and the manufacturing engineer.
Sharp Cut and IR Filters: W Series
These sharp cut and IR filters have been developed to meet the requirements of the European standard. Standard dimensions include 50mm square (polished) and 165mm square (polished and unpolished). Custom sizes and thickness are available, and a wide range of coatings can be applied.
Custom Fiber Collimators
Micro Laser Systems offers custom fiber collimators for applications involving sensors, microscopy, detectors, and spectrometers. Their standard fiber collimators are ideal for the prototyping and research stage of your project, but once you’ve determined your specific parameters, they can make the required changes that you need for your solution.
Linear Variable Filters Overview
DELTA has lifted the quality of variable filters* to new levels, by introducing a new powerful combination of linear variable filters. DELTA offers a Linear Variable Long Wave Pass filter (LVLWP), the corresponding Linear Variable Short Wave Pass filter (LVSWP) together with a Linear Variable Dichroic.
OWL (Outrageously Wide Lambda) Polarizers
Meadowlark Optics’ OWL polarizers are extremely broadband (300-2700nm) and have a wide acceptance angle (+ 40o). They’ve been designed to replace the large and costly pieces of calcite that were used in the past for the 300-2700nm wavelength range.
