    1/5/2017

    The new pco.panda 4.2 is a sCMOS sensor camera system designed to provide high quantum efficiency with low dark noise for applications including localization microscopy (PALM, STORM, dSTORM, GSDIM), light sheet fluorescence microscopy (LSFM, SPIM), structured illumination microscopy (SIM), and more. It also is housed in a compact, 65 x 65 x 65 mm3 package.

  3. 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. 

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

    FLIR offers the FLIR X6800sc/X6900sc: the world’s fastest MWIR 640 x 512 resolution thermal cameras for high-speed science applications. This thermal imager is designed to record 1004 fps at full resolution onto the camera RAM for up to 26 seconds.

  5. Application Systems
    6/4/2015

    OptoSigma offers a wide range of application systems that includes microscope units, alignment systems, interferometers, bio-photonics, and laser processing systems. These application systems are designed for many specific applications including polarization measurements, vacuum and oven measurements, and glass and film inspections.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Digital Encoder Galvano Scanner: GM-1000 Series
    2/25/2015

    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.

  10. 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.
