TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2015
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.
Detect Ionizing Radiation: X7 Photodiode Series
First Sensor’s X7 series of photodiodes come in ultra-flat chip-scale packages and have been optimized for scintillator luminescence detection in the VIS range. The surface of the device is bond-wire free to allow for precision mounting of a scintillation crystal.
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.
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.
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.
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.
World Class Optical Thin Films
DELTA has been providing world class optical thin films for applications involving optical coherence tomography (OCT), image transferring systems, Point of Care (PoC) instruments, flow cytometry, raman spectroscopy, high performance monochromators, biomedical laser systems, and more.
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.
