Optical Trapping – Laser Tweezer

New IPG fibre lasers available to researchers through Elliot Scientific


A broader range of IPG Photonics‘ reliable diode-pumped lasers and amplifiers using doped optical fibres as gain media are now available to researchers through Elliot Scientific, including the newly introduced Raman series of orange and red lasers.

The four groups of laser systems, encompassing dozens of individual models, offer a choice in terms of power output, polarisation mode, pulsed or continuous wave, plus single or multimode, and single frequency options. Choose from:RFL-sq

  • 1.0 micron Ytterbium-doped fibre lasers & amplifiers
    Continuous wave (CW), Q-switched and single frequency diode-pumped solid-state fibre lasers, as well as diode-pumped fibre amplifiers, for coherent or spectral beam combining, sensors, He3 pumping, optical tweezers and SHG applications
  • 1.5 micron Erbium-doped fibre lasers, amplifiers & broadband sources
    Around 1500 nm, only IPG Photonics offers the widest range of devices in a variety of powers and configurations for a multitude of scientific uses
  • 2.0 micron Thulium-doped fibre lasers
    Medical and other research applications abound for these compact, high-power, wavelength-selectable, single-mode CW or pulsed sources operating in the 1900 to 2400 nm spectral region
  • Raman lasers: Orange or Red wavelengths
    Up to 20 W from a super-compact lightweight optical head linked to a small air-cooled control module makes these lasers ideal for adaptive optics and guide star applications, flow cytometry, holography and spectroscopy

Tomorrow we are at the Oxford Bioimaging Festival

Mad City LAbs and Prizmatix components we on show at the recent Photonex event held in Coventry

Mad City Labs and Prizmatix components were on show at the recent Photonex event held in Coventry

Tomorrow, October 20th, Elliot Scientific is exhibiting at the annual Oxford Bioimaging Festival held in St John’s College.

The aim of the day is to share the breadth of the imaging expertise within the area’s imaging community by bringing together as many of Oxford’s imaging scientists and clinicians as possible, and showcasing the broad range of scientific research being undertaken in Oxford.

Mad City Labs nanopositioners and Prizmatix LED lightsources for optogenetics will be among the products we will be demonstrating for the life sciences. We will also be available to discuss the opportunities our advanced Optical Tweezers offer to researchers.

Registration is free to members of Oxford University and its institutional and NHS collaborators.

Next week, we are in Oxford for Quantum UK 2015


ELLblurred2Quantum UK 2015 will be the first in a series of annual meetings of the UK Quantum Technology Hub Network that was established by the UK government to accelerate the transition of quantum technologies from research to industry.

Elliot Scientific will be attending this meeting, that takes place at St John’s College, Oxford, from the 28th to the 30th of September. We will be exhibiting a wide variety of our systems, solutions, technologies, and products – both home-grown and from the companies we represent based in the USA, Asia and Europe.

The four Quantum Technology Hubs led by the universities of Oxford, York, Glasgow and Birmingham. They are focussed on:

  • Quantum computing
  • Quantum secure communications
  • Quantum-enhanced imaging
  • Quantum-enabled sensing

The conference will discuss the progress, strategy and technical challenges for all these sectors, and will bring together industry, academics, and government with the aim of stimulating new projects and standardising more mature technologies. Contact us for more information.

Elliot Scientific in New Delhi next week: See us at Laser World of Photonics India


Elliot Scientific will be exhibiting for the first time in the sub-continent as part of the British Pavilion at Laser World of Photonics India. The exhibition takes place at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi from September 9th to the 11th.

We will be proudly showing our range of precision positioning equipment – from small to ultra-small slides, XYZ Flexure Stages, and Elliot Gold Series fibre alignment systems and accessories.

If you’re attending the show, then do not miss this opportunity to personally experience UK craftsmanship at its best. Find out how smooth Elliot Scientific opto-mechanics are in operation, and how they can help you achieve a new level in precision alignment.  The Elliot Gold Series of flexure-based solutions are purchased by many leading universities and high-tech industries around the globe, with thousands in use every day in labs and clean rooms.

Elliot Scientific engineers will also be on hand to talk about the Optical Tweezers, automated alignment systemspiezo adjusters and controllers plus other systems we manufacture.

If you cannot get to the show, then contact us now with any questions you would like to ask us: We pride ourselves in offering Solution Science for Research and Industry.
