TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014
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.
High Precision Micromolding For Military And Aerospace Applications The Military and Aerospace industries require very precise parts because of the highly dangerous environment within which these components work
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.
DPSS Lasers by LASOS®
DPSS lasers by LASOS® feature a long lifetime, low noise, long-term stability, and outstanding beam quality. They’re housed in robust and compact packages, and each model in the family offers variations in output power and beam diameter.
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.
High Resolution InGaAs SWIR Camera: GA1280JSX
This InGaAs SWIR camera offers 1280 x 720 pixel resolution and is ideal for low-light level imaging, driver vision enhancement (DVE), covert surveillance, imaging through atmospheric obscurants, and multi-laser spotting and tracking. An OEM version is available for integration into UAS, handheld imaging systems, and robotic systems.
CCD Camera: 1110S
SI’s new 1110S camera is a pixel power-house! It is designed to accommodate the very large area muti-port single-chip CCD sensors coming onto the market today. These 100+ megapixel CCDs require a camera capable of running the large number of output ports in a cryo cooled dewar that meets and exceeds the requirements of the most demanding scientific applications. It provides device-limited performance in a very compact configuration.
