TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2015

Nanopositioner Focusing Elements: Nano-F Series

The Nano-F Series by Mad City Labs are nanopositioner focusing elements for applications involving confocal imaging, auto focusing, STORM imaging, and PALM imaging. They offer 100 or 200 microns of travel and are operable as standalone focusing elements or with other Mad City Labs’ nanopositioning stages.

  • Compact 640 x 480 Pixel Thermal Camera
    Compact 640 x 480 Pixel Thermal Camera

    The Tamarisk®640 thermal camera is well suited for security and surveillance, UAVs, medical imaging equipment, analytic devices, man-portable imaging devices, and other applications with size, weight, and power (SWaP) restrictions.

  • Multi-Wavelength Laser Modules and Beam Combiners
    Multi-Wavelength Laser Modules and Beam Combiners

    The LASOS® System Series is comprised of multi-wavelength laser modules and beam combiners with different designs for a variety of solutions. They’re available with free beam or fiber output options and in benchtop form and installable sub-systems. To date, two different models in the series are available.

  • VIS-SWIR Camera for High-Sensitivity Imaging: Ninox 640
    VIS-SWIR Camera for High-Sensitivity Imaging: Ninox 640

    The Ninox 640 is a digital VIS-SWIR camera that utilizes a 640 x 512 InGaAs sensor for thermography, astronomy, hyperspectral imaging, telecommunications, solar cell inspection, semiconductor inspection, and microscopy applications.

  • Spatial Light Modulators
    Spatial Light Modulators

    As their name would indicate, spatial light modulators modulate light according to a fixed pixel, or spatial, pattern. Meadowlark Optics manufactures and sells three different variations of these modulators to address a variety of photonics-based applications.

  • NIR Spectrometer: AvaSpec-NIR256-2.5-HSC
    NIR Spectrometer: AvaSpec-NIR256-2.5-HSC

    The new AvaSpec-NIR256-2.5-HSC spectrometer enhances the Avantes NIRline family.  Thanks to its new 100mm Symmetrical Czerny Turner design, the AvaSpec-NIR256-2.5-HSC takes performance to a new level, especially in the region from 2-2.5 µm where every photon counts.  The enclosed lab version of this spectrometer is 50% smaller and 35% lighter than its predecessor and the unhoused OEM configuration is nearly 30% smaller and lighter.  The dual-stage cooling of the AvaSpec-NIR256-2.5-HSC has improved signal to noise and dynamic range specifications for better performance in difficult applications like diffuse reflectance. 

  • High-Accuracy Laser Wavelength Meter
    High-Accuracy Laser Wavelength Meter

    The 621 Series Laser Wavelength Meter is the best way to measure the absolute wavelength of CW lasers that operate from the visible to the mid-IR. This system provides real-time laser wavelength information with an accuracy as high as ± 0.0001 nm. Continuous calibration with a built-in wavelength standard ensures the reliable accuracy that is needed to generate the most meaningful experimental results.

  • Transparent Sample Characterization

    Edmund Optics recently developed their own in-house solution to verify optical coatings, and the result was the DIC microscope. At Photonics West 2015, Stefaan Vandendriessche met with us to give us the story on how the microscope came to be, and what it can do. This interesting perspective gives their “What Can We Make For You” slogan some serious legs.

  • Trends In Microelectronics and Interactive Electro-Optic Devices

    Lisa Tsufura with Abrisa Technologies spent some time with Photonics Online on the last day of the show to catch us up to speed on some trends her company has observed in regards to microelectronics and interactive electro-optic devices, and the role Abrisa can play in said marketplaces.

  • UVC LEDs for Analytical And Life Sciences Instrumentation

    On day three of the Photonics West exhibition, Hari Venugopalan introduced us to his company’s Optan UVC LEDs. Watch the video to learn how their industry leading light output, superior light output maintenance, and excellent spectral quality can improve your analytical instrumentation used in water and wastewater monitoring, ozone monitoring, HPLC detectors, protein research, and fluorescence imaging.

  • A New Paradigm In FT-IR Spectroscopy
    A New Paradigm In FT-IR Spectroscopy

    Si-Ware Systems drew a lot of positive attention at Photonics West 2015 with their Prism award winning MEMS spectral sensors. Bassam Saadany and Mostafa Medhat met with Photonics Online on the last day of the show so we could get a glimpse of the sensors in person and see them in action. If you’re looking to replace your standard bench top FT-IR spectrometer with something much smaller and much less expensive, then this video is most certainly for you.

  • Optimize Your Laser Processes
    Optimize Your Laser Processes

    On the third and final day of the Photonics West 2015 exhibition, John McCauley with Ophir Photonics gave us a quick tutorial on their laser performance measurement equipment   and how it can be used to help OEMs and system integrators optimize their laser processes while ensuring quality and consistency over time.
