OptoSigma provides MHK C-shaped stainless steel mirror holders designed for 12.7 mm dichroic mirrors and beamsplitters. The holders feature high-resolution adjustment, and a knob-less design that is suitable for system integration.
The Helios is a compact, precision laser power meter designed specifically for the measurement of high power lasers in industrial processing applications. It measures an array of high power solid state lasers such as diode, fiber, and YAG lasers with powers ranging from 100 W to 12 kW and energies ranging from 10 J to 10 kJ. This device operates by measuring the energy and exposure time of a short 0.1 to 10 second exposure of the laser, and then calculates the power.
Bristol Instruments’ model 771 is a high-resolution laser spectrum analyzer that measures the spectral characteristics of CW and high-repetition rate pulsed lasers that operate from 375 nm to 12 μm. Laser wavelength is measured to +/- 0.0001 nm and spectral resolution is as high as 2 GHz.
The new pco.panda is a state-of-the-art sCMOS sensor camera system designed to provide high quantum efficiency with the lowest dark noise for a number of applications, including live cell microscopy, single molecule detection, bio- and chemi-luminescence, GSDIM, PALM, STORM, SPIM, and more. It also is housed in a compact package – just 65 mm3.
Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) is used for many applications including satellite imaging and air reconnaissance. HSI is usually executed with bulky hyperspectral-imaging cameras that are sensitive to misalignment, very expensive, and use prisms or gratings as dispersive elements. An alternative method of HSI is the combination of linear variable bandpass filters (LVBPFs) with silicon detectors. This allows for very compact, robust, and affordable HSI detectors that offer several advantages over conventional approaches.
HOYA’s color filter glass products include sharp cut/long pass, light-balancing, color-compensating, neutral density, heat-absorbing, multi-band calibration, and UV Absorbing/VIS blocking filters for the UV through NIR regions. Featured is the new UL365S UV Band-Pass Filter that offers UV transmitting/VIS absorbing performance with high UV transmittance, while providing the highest resistance to any effects caused by UV solarization and/or exposure to high humidity conditions.
FLIR offers the FLIR X6900sc: the world’s fastest 640 x 512 resolution thermal camera for high-speed science applications. This thermal imager is designed to record 1000 fps at full resolution onto the camera RAM for up to 26 seconds.
At 2016’s Photonics West, Ray Fontayne provided us with a general overview of Opto Diode and the markets they serve.
Marco Snikkers wrapped up our Photonics West 2016 coverage by introducing us to a pixel sensor that acts as an 8-channel spectrometer for biomedical, fluorescence marking, and colorimeter applications, as well as a multi-spectral camera that can monitor specific wavelengths in real-time.
At Zygo' booth this year, Tyler Steele introduced us to the Verifire™ series of interferometers for the measurement of plano, spherical and aspherical surfaces and material characteristics. He then turned it over to Eric Felkel who showed us the Nomad™, a portable optical profiler for measuring topography and roughness on optical surfaces.
At 2016’s Photonics West exhibition, Dan Bukaty talked to us about Precision Glass & Optics’ (PG&O) view on partnering with their customers.
This year at Photonics West, Jason Palidwar with Iridian Spectral Technologies gave us insight into the three optical filtering solutions his company is focusing on in 2016.
FLIR, the industry leader in thermal technology, release the X8500sc and the X6800sc. Get hands on with the world’s fastest HD camera and the world’s lowest cost high speed camera at Photonics West. See us at booth #2516 or visit FLIR.com/science.
