TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2014
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.
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.
Cooled High Resolution Genicam Compliant sCMOS Gen II Camera
Photonic Science Limited is offering a new range of scientific CMOS (sCMOS) Cameras with different resolutions of 1280x1024, 1920x1080 and 2048x2048 pixels adapted to the high end needs of industrial and scientific end users.
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.
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.
World’s Smallest, Most Rugged EMCCD Camera: Hawk EM247
Raptor Photonics’ Hawk EM247 EMCCD camera is only 43mm x 43 mm x 57mm and weighs less than 150g. Its size and weight makes for easy integration into UAVs, handheld systems, and robotic systems, and its ultra-low power (less than 5W) makes it well suited for OEM integration into electro-optic systems.
Optical Solutions and Assemblies
L-3 Applied Optics Center (AOC) offers high-end optical solutions and assemblies for a wide range of applications in imaging, display, industrial, machine vision, defense, and aerospace applications.
