OPIE16 Logo

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 – in the LASER EXPO Zone at OPIE’16, 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 May 18th to 20th at the Pacifico Yokohama.


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

LCOS_Head

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.


The Photonex Roadshow arrives in London on Monday

This coming Monday April 11th – will see the first one-day Photonex Roadshow of the year opening at Imperial College in London. The Roadshow features an exhibition of nearly three dozen top photonics technology suppliers, plus a conference with leading researchers on the topic of ‘Advances in photonic tools and techniques for the life sciences’. In addition, tutorials covering the latest in photonics techniques and instrumentation will be taking place.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Elliot Scientific is on Stand S34. So come and try out our XYZ Flexure Stages, miniature slides and rotary stages, and discuss how products from the many North American and European companies we represent here in the UK and Ireland can benefit your research or industry.

All this is free, so reserve your place now.

 


SU2P Symposium at Edinburgh next week

SU2P LogoElliot Scientific will be attending the Seventh Annual SU2P Symposium next week on the 4th and 5th of April 2016 at The University of Edinburgh – the venue  being the South Hall Complex at Pollok Halls.

The Symposium includes an exceptional list of speakers from around the world who will present leading edge research and industrial exploitation over a wide range of photonics and related topics. For example, sessions will discuss health, energy and the environment, and optical data communications.

Attendees will enjoy the very best in new photonics, international networking, and have the opportunity to see some of the products Elliot Scientific offers. We look forward to seeing you there.

Photonics West opens next week: Elliot Scientific to launch DALi 3 in Booth 4555

MDE141 Riser Blocks with MDE330 XYZ Flexure Stage

San 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 the North Hall’s Booth 4555, giving visitors the chance to experience our world-renowned range of XYZ flexures, precision engineered compact slides and stages, and optical tweezers for laser trapping systems.

We will also be launching our new E2300 automated alignment system, the latest of our renowned DALi controllers for piezo-driven flexure stages.

The exhibition runs from February 16th to 18th and more information can be found on the dedicated Photonics West 2016 website here


New IPG fibre lasers available to researchers through Elliot Scientific

ELR_Laser_2w

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
