Next month sees the opening of Photonex 2014 – the showcase light and imaging exhibition and conference. Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena is once again the venue, and Elliot Scientific will be there on Stand B10.
Lasers from IPG Photonics, Integrated Optics, and FEMTOLASERS will be on show, along with Honeywell Sperian and NoIR Laser protective eyewear. In addition, the latest version of the popular laser-driven plasma light source from Energetiq will be demonstrated alongside Spatial Light Modulators and diffractive optics from Holoeye.
We look forward to welcoming you to our stand on October 15th or 16th, where you will also discover an exciting new range of products we are introducing.
For information about the Show, visit the Photonex website.
The Elliot Scientific August newsletter is now available. In this issue Vescent’s videos show lock robustness, Mad City Labs aid microscopists along with Optical Tweezers from Elliot Scientific, and Lake Shore still has some Option Cards for its Model 340. Plus a whole lot more.

Next week, SPIE Optics + Photonics in San Diego will be hosting a conference stream entitled Optical Trapping and Optical Micromanipulation XI that runs from Sunday August 17th until the 21st.
There will be twenty sessions in total, chaired by two of the leading researchers in the field and both champions of Optical Tweezers: Kishan Dholakia of the University of St. Andrews, and Gabriel C. Spalding from the Illinois Wesleyan University. Topics covered will include:
- Toward (Or In) the Quantum Limit of Opto-Mechanics
- Beam Shaping and Aberration/Wavefront Correction
- Helicity and Optical Angular Momentum
- Optically Driven Microrheology and Mechanical Properties
- Using the Photonic Toolbox to Study Cells and Their Organelles
- Enhanced Sensitivity and Resolution of Optical Force Actuators
- Single-Molecule Manipulation and Study
- Photonic Devices for Optically Induced Forces
- Near-Field Micromanipulation, Plasmonic, and Nanoparticle Trapping
- Studies of Active Swimmers/Hydrodynamics
- Statistical Mechanics of Small Systems
- Optical Manipulation of Matter through Gaseous Media
- Optical Sorting, Optical Lab-on-a-Chip, and Microfluidics
- Optically Bound Matter
- Optofluidics and Optically Shaped Structures
- Optically Manipulated Robotics and Novel Samples
Although Elliot Scientific will not be exhibiting at this event, we would still like to wish all conference attendees a good week.
Vescent Photonics has introduced ICE, a compact suite of digitally controlled electronics that will precisely drive and stabilise a broad range of semiconductor lasers and associated photonics tools.
The ICE system is based on the same high-performance D2 Series electronics that have established Vescent Photonics as the leader in laser control and stabilisation. It is fully compatible with all Vescent D2 modules and can be used to drive and control a complete stabilised-laser system; overseeing frequency and temperature, offset lock DBR, DFB, or External Cavity lasers.
Each ICE control board is commanded via a USB Virtual Communication Port programmed in a language such as LabVIEW™, MATLAB™, Python, Java, et al. An intuitive GUI can also be used to issue commands and control the experiment or, if installed in the ‘ICE Box’- a chassis that provides power and interface connections – a front-panel control is included.
From June 10th, Elliot Scientific will be showcasing our latest products and solutions at CLEO: Expo in San Jose, California.
Billed as the world’s most prestigious technical conference in the photonics industry, CLEO has over 300 companies from around the globe showing new products and demonstrating cutting-edge innovations. Elliot Scientific will be among them, promoting our ranges of precision positioning systems and optical trapping equipment.
The event will also feature:
- Technology Playground
- Market Focus
- Technology Transfer
- Power Lunch
Exposition: 10-12 June 2014 – we look forward to meeting you there on Booth 2120.
Elliot Scientific is demonstrating Optical Tweezers and our range of precision positioning systems – from ultra-small slides to the Elliot Gold Series XYZ Flexure Stages – in the LASER EXPO Zone at OPIE’14, Yokohama.
Organised by the Laser Society of Japan, this technology exhibition is the largest laser related tradeshow in the country, enabling researchers and industry to discover the trends in nano- and macro-laser processing, optical communications, biotechnology and nano technology.
We will be joining our Japanese distributor Autex in Booth G-1 at the show, which takes place from April 23rd to 25th at the Pacifico Yokohama.
