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.

  • 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. 

  • World Class Optical Thin Films
    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.

  • CCD Camera: 1110S
    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.

  • 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.

  • Scientific CMOS Camera: pco.edge 4.2 LT
    Scientific CMOS Camera: pco.edge 4.2 LT

    This sCMOS camera offers 2048 x 2048 pixel resolution, low noise (0.8 electrons), high speed (40 fps), a high dynamic range (36 000:1), and greater than 70% quantum efficiency. It’s been optimized for microscope synchronization and scanning applications.

  • Detect Ionizing Radiation: X7 Photodiode Series
    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.

  • 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
    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.
