    2/7/2015

    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.

  2. The World’s Fastest 640 x 512 Resolution IR Camera: FLIR X6900sc
    1/12/2016

    FLIR offers the X6900sc: the world’s fastest MWIR and LWIR 640 x 512 resolution thermal cameras for high-speed science applications. The X6900sc MWIR camera features a FLIR Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector, while the X6900sc SLS LWIR features a strained layer superlattice (SLS) detector. These thermal imagers are designed to record 1000 fps at full resolution onto the camera RAM for up to 26 seconds.

  3. Laser Line Mirrors
    12/27/2016

    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. Nexview™ 3D Optical Surface Profiler
    12/4/2013

    The Nexview™ 3D optical profiler microscope stands out amongst competitive products by its ability to measure the topography of virtually any surface, irrespective of roughness, large steps and segments, thin films, steep slopes, with feature heights ranging from < 1 nm up to 20000 µm. It does all this in 3D, without contact, and provides the best qualities of other profiling technologies (stylus, confocal, focus scanning) without their limitations.

  5. Space, Satellite, and Astronomy Filters and Coatings
    6/30/2014

    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.

  6. Pioneering Back-Illuminated sCMOS Camera
    1/5/2017

    PCO will introduce its latest camera innovation: the pco.panda 4.2 back illuminated, a state-of-the-art sCMOS camera featuring the same compact 65 x 65 x 65 mm dimensions of the renowned pco.panda. PCO’s new back-illuminated sensor provides outstanding quantum efficiency, up to 95%. 

  7. Color Filter Glass: UL365S UV Band-Pass Filter
    1/5/2016

    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. 

  8. HD Format Digital SWIR InGaAs Camera: OWL 1280
    11/3/2016

    The OWL 1280 from Raptor Photonics is a digital short-wave infrared (SWIR) InGaAs camera in HD format, ideal for surveillance and scientific imaging applications including range finding, vision enhancement, astronomy, and hyperspectral imaging. The camera utilizes a 1280 x 1280 sensor for SCD that offers visible extension from 0.4 µm to 1.7 µm, and 10 µm x 10 µm pixel pitch for the highest resolution imaging.

  9. Linear Variable VIS NIR Bandpass Filters For Hyperspectral Imaging
    1/6/2016

    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.

  10. Helios Laser Power Meter For Industrial Automation
    6/7/2016

    The Helios is a laser power meter designed 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.
