SPECTROSCOPY PRODUCTS

The innovative Optran® UV NSS is a solarization-resistant optical fiber with a hermetic carbon layer ideal for spectroscopy, medical diagnostics, and laser delivery systems.

Raptor offers a full suite of cameras and detectors suitable for Raman and HSI applications, including a choice of CCD and InGaAs sensors in various resolutions and pixel pitches, optimized for specific wavelengths, with cooling options.

Opto Diode presents a new two-stage, cooled, lead selenide (PbSe) detector that operates in the mid-infrared (IR) spectral region with peak sensitivity between 4.3 and 4.5µm. The cooler on the BXT2S-28T allows the detector element to operate as low as -45 °C to maximize detectivity (D*).

The IR Detectors (B Series) from Opto Diode are high-performance lead selenide (PbSe) single-channel, cooled, and uncooled devices. Applications for these detectors include gas analysis, emissions monitoring, spectroscopy, thermal imaging, defense, security, and process control systems. 

G&H offers a range of distributed feedback lasers (DFB) that provide smooth, tunable wavelength control and the narrow spectral width required for precise fiber optics. Applications for these products include spectroscopy and fiber optic communications.

BaySpec introduces Breeze-L, the world’s smartest palm-held spectrometer in the Short-Wave Infrared (SWIR), with the longest wavelength coverage up to 2500 nm. Featuring proprietary miniaturized optics, the Breeze-L, with its extended wavelength range of 1350-2500 nm, is highly efficient for maximum sensitivity with ultrafast acquisitions. For the first time, a smart spectrometer delivers close to laboratory performance in a palm-held form.

Zygo’s Nexview™ LS650 is a large format metrology system designed as an inspection tool for automated measurement of injection molding tooling, PCBs, glass panels, and other samples requiring an extended work volume up to 650 x 650 mm. It provides 2D and 3D measurements of a variety of surface features with sub-nanometer vertical precision and sub-micron lateral precision.

Need to integrate laser beam measurements in a system? Gentec-EO can make it happen thanks to a broad range of custom solutions. All products can be customized to meet specific requirements and they can all be used as original equipment manufacturing.

SPECTROSCOPY VIDEOS

  • The Breeze is a handheld spectrometers with full VIS, NIR, and SWIR coverage from 400 - 2500nm. This handheld spectrometer features proprietary miniaturized optics and high efficiency for maximum sensitivity with high-speed acquisition. This compact device allows operation with the touch of a button.

  • Hyperspectral imaging technology has advanced significantly in the last 50 years, and Greg Staples with Bayspec talked with us for a few minutes at the 2016 SPIE DCS exhibition about how it has changed.

  • This year at Photonics West, Jason Palidwar with Iridian Spectral Technologies gave us insight into the three optical filtering solutions his company is focusing on in 2016.

  • 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.

  • PD-LD's LS-2 LabSource is a dual-source benchtop module features two laser sources, rendering it unique relative to other benchtop Raman modules. These laser sources are VBG-stabilized, and are available in standard and custom wavelengths.
