The Model 155 MeasureReady™ power source offers unprecedented simplicity and intuitive operation as video shows

Lake Shore’s new Model 155 MeasureReady™ precision I/V source is ideal for demanding scientific applications requiring a precise low-noise supply of current or voltage, for example electronic material characterisation. Supplying 1 W maximum from DC to 100 kHz over a broad output range, these power supplies deliver a solid foundation for I/V curve, Hall effect, and other fundamental measurements.

The clutter-free touch display with a unique TiltView™ screen presents a natural and engaging user interface. No confusing buttons or long learning curves make the Model 155 as easy to use as a smartphone. With similar connectivity – Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB, plus LAN – it offers convenient remote operation via LabVIEW™, a custom PC interface, or mobile app.

Features

  • Bipolar, 4-quadrant I/V source
  • DC and AC modes supported up to 100 kHz
  • Full scale ranges from 10 mV to 100 V (1 µA to 100 mA)
  • 0.001% programming resolution
  • Low peak to peak noise: from 1 µV at 10 mV full scale
  • Manual and autorange function
  • Smartphone-based touchscreen user interface

Economic laser trapping is made possible with Elliot Scientific Optical Tweezers

Optical Tweezers have been around for a long time. Over 40 years have passed since Arthur Ashkin and his colleagues described the single-beam gradient force trap and sparked a realisation in many scientists that this novel instrument would be a powerful tool for use in the course of their research. However, the costs and complexities of building Optical Tweezers were often prohibitive.

Optical Tweezers Brochure 2016With the development of easy to use ‘straight out of the box’ systems by Elliot Scientific, Optical Tweezers have come down from the heights of esoteric research and can be found in many labs around the world. Real experiments carried out in one such lab can be found here.

Download our Optical Tweezers Brochure. It describes all the systems we offer; from open architecture kits to complete computer-controlled multiple spot trapping systems with force detection and more, or contact us to discuss details.


Halcyonics range of active vibration isolation systems by Accurion now available through Elliot Scientific

For over 20 years the Halcyonics brand name has been associated with market-leading Active Vibration Isolation solutions.

Designed and manufactured by Accurion, the company’s portfolio of platforms, workstations and modular support units can be found in labs throughout Europe and beyond. Now, Elliot Scientific brings this popular anti-vibration product range to the fore in the UK and Ireland.

Applications that can benefit from a Halcyonics system include: scanning probe microscopy, inverted optical microscopy, confocal microscopy, profilometry, nanoindentation, patch-clamp setups, laser experiments, ultra-precise weighing, micromanipulation such as IVF, Hi-Fi turntables and many more.

Accurion offer Benchtop, Workstation, and Heavy-duty Halcyonics systems to provide active electronic vibration isolation for sensitive equipment. This can range from a small instrument to a large apparatus that might weigh hundreds of kilos.

For more information and a video demo visit our Accurion pages, or contact us.

R&D Magazine declares the 8600 VSM from Lake Shore Cryotronics a winner

The 8600 Series VSMs from Lake Shore Cryotronics [ @LakeShoreCryo ] has been recognised as one of “100 most technologically significant new products in 2017” at an awards ceremony organised by R&D Magazine.

The VSM was re-imagined, focusing on a clean ergonomic design that would simplify a researcher’s interaction with the system. For example, a motorised head brings the sample to a comfortable height for easy, one-handed exchange of the sample rods.

This superior magnetometer, through both performance and convenience, offers very high sensitivity and a super-fast magnetic field ramp rate. Temperature options include a cryostat, high-temperature oven, and single stage variable temperature insert. The combined temperature range of the options is 4.2 to 1273 K, and all three options quickly slide into place and are auto-detected by the system’s software – video demonstration.

8600 Series Features

  • 0.25 × 10-7 emu noise floor at 10 s/pt
  • 10 ms/pt data acquisition rate
  • 10,000 Oe/s field ramp rate
  • Rapid, repeatable temperature option exchange
  • High stability—±0.05% per day
  • Fields to 3.26 T
  • Widest available temperature range—4.2 K to 1273 K

The magnet poles are also easily adjusted with a specially designed indexed positioning system that allows the pole gap to be set at one of six repeatable positions, eliminating the need to recalibrate after each change.

New UV laser source for CRAIC Technologies’ 20/30 PV™ Microspectrophotometer

The introduction of new UV laser sources will dramatically enhance the capabilities of the 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer from CRAIC Technologies in terms of both fluorescence and photoluminescence microspectroscopy.

The major application will be to serve as an intense excitation source for fluorescence and photoluminescence (PL) microspectroscopy. This will broaden the range of materials that can be caused to emit photons via a luminescent process.

The 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer combines the latest technologies to allow the user to see and measure UV-visible-NIR range transmission, absorbance, reflectance, emission and fluorescence spectra of sample areas smaller than a micron across. Thin film thickness and colour spaces can also be determined.
