  1. Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs) With Enhanced NIR Sensitivity To 950 nm: Series 9.5

    First Sensor’s Series 9.5 Avalanche Photodiodes (APDs) are designed with enhanced NIR sensitivity to 950 nm, providing fundamental technology for the development of custom-designed solutions such as different geometries, packages, and arrays.

  2. Digital Encoder Galvano Scanner: GM-1000 Series

    The GM-1000 series of digital encoder galvano scanners is comprised of four different models with variations in beam diameter, scan angles, small step response, and resolution. Each model has a compact physical profile, super low thermal drift, and extreme high resolution, precision, and accuracy.

  3. Laser Line Mirrors

    Optics Balzers has successfully developed and tested a special dielectric layer system with PARMS coating technology, making it possible to manufacture 45°-HR mirrors for 1030nm applications with an established destruction threshold of 0.44J/cm² at 210fs. These mirrors are typically used in ultra-short pulsed systems of Yb:YAG solid-state lasers.

  4. Linear Variable VIS NIR Bandpass Filters For Hyperspectral Imaging

    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.

  5. Helios Laser Power Meter For Industrial Automation

    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.

  6. Space, Satellite, and Astronomy Filters and Coatings

    Iridian Spectral Technologies has developed filters and coatings for many satellites and low-earth orbit instrumentation for both terrestrial and stellar observation. This includes large format filters for astronomical observations (single band and multi-band pass filters), light absorbers/black coatings, dichroic mirrors and beam-splitters, and multi-element arrays.

  7. Near-Eye Display Solutions

    Optics Blazers manufactures Near-Eye Display combiners and other components for optimized display performance and see-through properties. With an integrated manufacturing chain, this company can deliver single reflective surface, multiple reflective surface, free-form, or diffractive combiners. Optics Blazers’ solutions are developed with cost and scalability in mind to serve the competitive consumer electronics market.

  8. Compact sCMOS Camera: pco.panda

    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.

  9. High-Resolution Laser Spectrum Analyzer: 771 Series

    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.

  10. MHK C-Shape Stainless Steel Mirror Holders

    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.
