TECHNOLOGIES TO SEE AT PHOTONICS WEST 2015

APEX®: Glass for Photonic and Optoelectronic Packages

3D Glass Solutions provides systems integration solutions for a wide array of Optoelectronic and Opto-RF products, ranging from mechanical spacers, fiber optic alignment trenches, to completely integrated optoelectronic packages.  

  • Digital Laser Scanner/Galvano Scanner
    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.

  • Photon Counting Device: MPPC (Multi-Pixel Photon Counter)
    Photon Counting Device: MPPC (Multi-Pixel Photon Counter)

    Hamamatsu’s MPPC, a type of silicon photomultiplier, is a photon-counting device with high photon detection efficiency, wide dynamic range, low afterpulsing, and low crosstalk. It also features small size, low voltage operation, and insensitivity to magnetic fields. These and other characteristics make the MPPC suitable low-light detectors for many applications including fluorescence measurement, radiation monitoring, and LIDAR. MPPCs are available in a variety of sizes, package types, and arrays. For easy operation, MPPC modules that integrate an MPPC and various circuits are available.

  • High Power Laser Measurement: 100K-W Series
    High Power Laser Measurement: 100K-W Series

    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.

  • 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.

  • Industrial Grade Mid-IR Laser Source: Cobolt Odin™
    Industrial Grade Mid-IR Laser Source: Cobolt Odin™

    This compact and tunable mid-IR laser is well suited for applications involving the industrial and scientific markets. They’re ideal for analytical instrumentation used in environmental monitoring, for the control and limitation of pollution emissions, and for other applications involving molecular spectroscopy.

  • Liquid Silicone Rubber Injection Molding
    Liquid Silicone Rubber Injection Molding

    Liquid silicone rubber (LSR) molding is a thermoset process that mixes a two-component compound together, which is then heat cured in the mold with a platinum catalyst to produce a final part. Liquid Silicon Rubber parts are formed through an injection-molding process similar to that of conventional plastic injection molding with one major difference — the material delivery system is cooled and the mold is heated. Liquid silicone rubber possesses thermal, chemical and electrical resistance, plus biocompatibility. Also, Liquid Silicone Rubber parts can withstand sterilization while maintaining physical properties at extreme temperatures.
