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.

Introducing FEMTO-30: a high pulse energy ultrafast laser with flexible repetition rates

Fibercryst is the only manufacturer of short pulse lasers and amplifiers that utilise the innovative Single Crystal Fibre technology (SCF) – a technology that offers significant performance advantages over existing technologies.

The FEMTO-30 is Fibercryst’s latest and more powerful laser system. This 30 W laser can deliver pulse energies of 160 µJ (@ 100 kHz) in pulse widths of less than 800 fs, with repetition rates selectable between 100 kHz and 1 MHz.

A significant feature of this laser is the ability to easily and quickly change the repetition rate to favour the average power or the energy per pulse. This makes it ideal for:

  • Cutting and drilling of hard materials
  • Cold machining of polymers and composites
  • Micromachining and structuring of surfaces, for example medical devices and semiconductors

For more information about this or other lasers and amplifiers from Fibercryst, please contact us.
