GeoImage™ is the latest Vitrinite Reflectance Measurement System from CRAIC Technologies and is used to determine the grade of coal and coke by vitrinite reflectance as per the ISO 7404-5 and ASTM D2798 standards. These procedures ensure that coal blends used in energy generation and steel making are optimal and consistent from batch to batch.
Designed for use with petrographic microscopes, GeoImage™ can also be used in conjunction with CRAIC’s microspectrometers to also acquire reflectance and fluorescence spectra of coal samples, and take high resolution colour images too.
GeoImage™ also features an automated point counting module where hundreds of points are measured on the sample. Using statistical data analysis, the amount of vitrinite* in the coal blend, its thermal maturity and thus its energy content can be quickly determined.
* Vitrinite is a maceral of coal and is comprised of various polymers, cellulose and lignin. Measuring the amount of light reflected by vitrinite macerals is a key test to determine the thermal maturity of the coal blend and its suitability for steel production. The procedure has been standardised by a number of international bodies including both ISO and ASTM.
Andeen-Hagerling has been manufacturing class-leading capacitance and capacitance/loss bridge test equipment for over thirty years. Their equipment is used in laboratories worldwide, in a wide variety of research and industrial applications.
Elliot Scientific is able to offer expert advice on selecting the right Andeen-Hagerling instrument for your project, so please contact us with details of the application and we will be happy to help.
We are exhibiting at Photonex – the UK’s premier annual event dedicated to the science of light – from tomorrow.
On Wednesday, October 11th and Thursday the 12th, members of our team of engineers and scientists will be on hand to discuss Elliot Scientific’s Solution Science capabilities. We will also be demonstrating our world-famous Elliot|Martock XYZ Flexure Stages and smooth backlash-free miniature slides, and you can also experience some of the many products we offer manufactured by the North American and European companies we represent.
So visit Stand B10 at Photonex in Coventry this week and discover how the equipment, systems and instruments we offer support the UK and Ireland’s scientific, research and industrial communities.
If you cannot make it to the show, have a look at our latest newsletter instead…
The Elliot Scientific October newsletter is now available. In this issue we feature a number of products that we will be exhibiting at Photonex. Elliot|Martock flexure and miniature stages take pride of place alongside equipment from Energetiq Technologies, HOLOEYE Photonics, Mad City Labs, Vescent Photonics and many more…

Data is currently available online for sensors shipped since the beginning of 2016, so if an existing CD is lost or damaged, the calibration data can be quickly downloaded providing you have the serial number of the relevant sensor on hand. Alternatively, contact Lake Shore Service for archived curves.
Lake Shore space-qualified sensors were on the hugely successful Cassini Huygens mission to Saturn that ended earlier this month.
Nearly twenty years of gathering temperature information in an extreme environment is a good advert for their sensors, and Elliot Scientific often supplies them to the aerospace industry and space scientists in the UK and Ireland.
Please contact us for more information.
Photonics Ireland is a biennial conference that this year is being held from tomorrow (13th September) at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Galway.
Elliot Scientific is exhibiting at this premier event for Photonics research in Ireland, and we will be demonstrating a broad range of products; both our own and from companies we represent – some exclusively – in the British Isles.
High profile national and international speakers will showcase some of their latest research and achievements in Photonics. Topics will include:
- Biophotonics and Optical Sensing
- Laser-Materials and Laser-Plasma Interactions
- Nanophotonics and Plasmonics
- Optical Communications and Networks
- Photonic Integration and Packaging
- Photonic Devices and Photonic Materials
- Quantum Optics and Technologies
QuAMP – the International Conference on Quantum, Atomic, Molecular and Plasma Physics – is the première UK conference devoted to these areas of physics. Elliot Scientific is exhibiting on Tuesday and Wednesday (September 5th and 6th) next week. The event is being held at the Hilton Glasgow Grosvenor Hotel.
QuAMP covers quantum information and technology, quantum optics, ultra-cold matter, the interaction of light with molecules and plasmas. The format of the biennial conference comprises plenary talks by invited speakers as well as some contributed talks and posters.
IPG Photonics makes a number of fibre laser systems available specifically to the research community.
CW Green Fibre Lasers
A variety of science and medical research applications can benefit from a green laser and IPG’s GLR series of single-mode, single-frequency, linearly polarised continuous wave (CW) 532 nm fibre lasers with output powers up to 30 W are ideal for these purposes.
These highly efficient and reliable lasers feature a super-compact lightweight optical head connected to an air-cooled rack-mounted main laser console. The all-fibre construction allows for full range adjustment of output power without changes in power stability or beam mode parameters.
For more information about these or other lasers IPG offers through Elliot Scientific, please contact us.
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.
