OPIE15 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’15, 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 at the show, which takes place from April 22nd to 24th at the Pacifico Yokohama.

SU2P Symposium at St. Andrews next week

SU2P takes place at the University of St. Andrews next week...

In 2010 the first Annual SU2P Symposium took place and was highly successful. Elliot Scientific will be attending the Sixth Annual SU2P Symposium, which will be held next week on the 23rd and 24th March 2015 at The University of St. Andrews.

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.

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.

☼ News from Old Elliot’s Almanac: A partial eclipse of the Sun will be visible across the UK on Friday, March 20th, during the morning.

The Photonex Roadshow arrives in ‘Soton’ on Monday

Zepler & Mountbatten Building at SOTON

‘Soton’ is the popular abbreviated name for the port of Southampton in Hampshire, and on Monday the first Photonex Roadshow of the year will be setting up at the city’s University. The Roadshow is a exhibition featuring 30 of the UK’s top photonics technology supplier companies,  plus a conference with leading researchers and invited speakers, and more.

Elliot Scientific will be on Stand S22 with a display of our popular ranges of XYZ Flexure Stages, miniature slides and rotary stages, and a selection of products from the North American and European companies we represent here in the UK and Ireland.

In addition, a Chalcogenide and specialist glasses for next generation advanced optoelectronic materials and light technologies open day is co-located with the Roadshow, and guided tours of the University’s Zepler Institute (a multidisciplinary research centre for electronics, photonics, nanoscience and quantum technologies) will be taking place.

All this is free, so reserve your place now.
