TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2015
The 100K-W laser power meter measures very high power NIR, Nd:YAG, and fiber lasers used in thermal ablation, heavy-section welding, metal forming, and other industrial materials processing applications. It’s also well-equipped to handle military directed-energy applications.
Mid-Wave, Science-Grade Thermal Imaging: FLIR A6700sc IR Camera
The A6700sc infrared (IR) camera is ideal for capturing temperature calibrated infrared imagery in research and science related applications. It has a sensitivity of 0.02C and provides 640x512 pixel resolution through its integrated InSb detector.
Digital Laser Scanner/Galvano Scanner
The Digital Laser/Galvano Scanner series from Canon includes three different models with various features and application areas. Each Galvano scanner has digital servo controllers and encoders, ensuring good temperature characteristics.
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.
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.
Optical Filters for Endoscopy and Medical Imaging
Iridian Spectral offers edge, notch, and band pass optical filters covering the 300nm (UV) to 10µm (LWIR) wavelength range for biomedical instrumentation, and medical devices for endoscopy and laparoscopy.
Deep UV Emitters: MTE280xxx Series
These deep UV emitters operate in the 280nm wavelength range and are particularly well-suited for air and water sanitation applications, as well as in ultraviolet curing applications. They’re offered in one of the largest selection of packages commercially available on the market today. Bare die versions of the emitters are also available for custom OEM packages and assemblies.
PHOTONICS WEST VIDEOS
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
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
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.
PRESENTING OUR PLATINUM SPONSOR
FLIR is proud to be releasing our high performance cooled A-Series product family with detectors in every waveband. These cutting-edge FLIR Research and Science Thermal Imaging Cameras set a new standard for price and performance. See for yourself and check out the new, affordable NIR, MWIR HD, and LWIR SLS thermal imagers at FLIR booth #1130.
