Tomorrow, the Photonex Roadshow returns to Scotland

The Photonex Roadshow returns to Glasgow tomorrow, bringing together the UK’s top photonics technology suppliers, leading researchers and invited speakers for a very special one-day event on June 14th at the University of Strathclyde.

Elliot Scientific will be among the dozens of companies dedicated to optics, biophotonics and imaging technology – allowing you to view the latest photonics solutions, optical components, instruments and systems, as well as a conference and tutorials.

Photonics is an enabling technology, so you can only really find out how a company can help you in your work by face-to-face contact. Elliot Scientific’s Solution Science is more than just a slogan, it’s our approach to providing the tools and equipment you need to get the results you want.

We will be demonstrating our ranges of precision slides and flexure stages, the ultra-bright laser-driven plasma light source from Energetiq, nanopositioners from Mad City Labs, and much more. Come and talk to us about your project.


Slimline ICE models launched by Vescent Photonics at recent CLEO’17

After several years in development, the first in a new range of Slimline ICE (SLICE) models was launched by Vescent Photonics at the recent CLEO’17 meeting.

The SLICE-QT is a four-channel temperature controller for thermally stabilising a photonic device, laser or non-linear crystal.

The QT is compatible with both TECs and resistive heaters, and features auto tuning along with 40 watts of control power available to the user.

For more information, please contact us.

 

 


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.
