Laser Trapping – Optical Tweezers

Tomorrow is a SUPA day for us

Wednesday, May 10th, is SUPA day! An annual gathering celebrating Scottish physics taking place at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh.

SUPA – the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance – comprises the universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot Watt, St. Andrews, Strathclyde and West of Scotland; plus associate members Fraunhofer UK, UKATC, PHYESTA and IMPP.

Elliot Scientific will be at the supplier exhibition that runs concurrent with the talks and presentations.


We’re in Yokohama next week: visit us at OPIE’17

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 – at OPIE’17, 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 E-2 at the show, which takes place from April 19th to 21st at the Pacifico Yokohama.

Three new PLUTO SLMs get dielectric mirror coating for increased power handling

LCOS_HeadHOLOEYE now offers new dielectric mirror coated versions of their popular PLUTO phase only Spatial Light Modulators (SLMs). Based on reflective LCOS microdisplays delivering 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution with an 8 µm pixel pitch, the latest models in the PLUTO range enable use with higher incident power lasers due to the coating’s reduction of absorption.

Three models are currently available: the PLUTO-UV-043, PLUTO-VIS-056 and PLUTO-NIR-049 for use in the UV, visible and IR respectively. All PLUTO SLMs are plug & play, offer fast full digital addressing, and can be programmed with phase functions via a standard graphics card as an extended monitor device using the supplied software.

Please contact us for more details.

 


Photonics West opens next week – Elliot Scientific in Booth 4554

16022016241San Francisco’s Moscone Center will once again be the venue for the annual Photonics West group of exhibitions and conferences organised by SPIE – the international society for optics and photonics.

Elliot Scientific will be exhibiting in Booth 4554, demonstrating our renowned range of XYZ flexure stages and precision micro- and nano-positioning slides, our fully automated DAli 3 alignment system, and our optical trapping laser tweezer add-ons and upgrades for professional microscopes.

Researchers to benefit with expanded range of lasers from IPG Photonics

Elliot Scientific is now able to offer a broader range of CW/modulated lasers and amplifiers with up to 200 W power from IPG Photonics to researchers. These reliable diode-pumped amplifiers and lasers use doped optical fibres as gain media, and all are compact, air-cooled and use direct diode pumping for optimum efficiency.

glr_3The types currently available are:

  • 1.0 micron – Ytterbium-doped fibre lasers & amplifiers
  • 1.5 micron – Erbium-doped fibre lasers, amplifiers & broadband sources
  • 2.0 micron – Thulium-doped fibre lasers
  • Raman fibre lasers operating between 1200 and 1500 nm
  • Green fibre lasers delivering high power at 532 nm

The range includes models available with random or linearly polarised output, single frequency options, and a variety of powers. Please contact us for up to date information.

10 megapixel SLM delivers 4k of super-resolution: New Ultra HD device from HOLOEYE

HOLOEYE Photonics has just released a 4094 x 2464 pixel resolution Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) with the introduction of the GAEA range.

Available in three models: TELCO (IR), NIR and VIS(ible), they will consist of a driver unit with HDMI digital video interface and a phase only LCOS (Liquid Crystal on Silicon) standard microdisplay 10 megapixel (4K) panel with a 0.7″ active area as measured diagonally. The very small 3.74 µm pixel pitch will enable high diffraction angles.

In addition, HOLOEYE’s PLUTO range of 1920 x 1080 pixel panels have recently been expanded with 8 models optimised for wavelength bands in the visible, infrared, or both.
