The Photonex Roadshow returns to Glasgow tomorrow, bringing together the UK’s top photonics technology suppliers, leading researchers and invited speakers for a very special one-day event on June 14th at the University of Strathclyde.
Elliot Scientific will be among the dozens of companies dedicated to optics, biophotonics and imaging technology – allowing you to view the latest photonics solutions, optical components, instruments and systems, as well as a conference and tutorials.
Photonics is an enabling technology, so you can only really find out how a company can help you in your work by face-to-face contact. Elliot Scientific’s Solution Science is more than just a slogan, it’s our approach to providing the tools and equipment you need to get the results you want.
We will be demonstrating our ranges of precision slides and flexure stages, the ultra-bright laser-driven plasma light source from Energetiq, nanopositioners from Mad City Labs, and much more. Come and talk to us about your project.
Wednesday, May 10th, is SUPA day! An annual gathering celebrating Scottish physics taking place at the Royal College of Physicians in Edinburgh.
SUPA – the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance – comprises the universities of Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Heriot Watt, St. Andrews, Strathclyde and West of Scotland; plus associate members Fraunhofer UK, UKATC, PHYESTA and IMPP.
Elliot Scientific will be at the supplier exhibition that runs concurrent with the talks and presentations.
Product Overview 2017 is now available to download. This new brochure from Elliot Scientific details the broad range of products and equipment we offer from leading companies around the globe and our own ranges designed and manufactured in-house.
The sixteen page brochure has been fully updated to include all the latest products that we offer for:
- Lasers and Systems
- Optics and Fibre-optics
- Precision Positioning
- Microscopy and Biophotonics
- Sensors and Instrumentation
- Materials Research
Printed copies of the brochure are also available. Contact us to have one posted to you, or simply pick one up at any UK conference or exhibition we are attending.
Our next is SU2P in Glasgow: 5th and 6th April.
April is lining up to be a very busy month for Elliot Scientific as we are exhibiting at four events.
Magnetism 2017: 3rd and 4th April
Next Monday and Tuesday, we will be at the University of York for Magnetism 2017 for a mixture of invited talkers and submitted contributions exploring the breadth of magnetism research in the UK and Republic of Ireland. Subjects will include spintronics, domain walls, dynamics, vortices, skyrmions, spin ice, biological and organic magnetism, superconductors, magnetocalorics and more.
SU2P: 5th and 6th April
Then on Wednesday and Thursday we are at Heriot Watt University for SU2P where world class speakers will present and challenge the delegates on innovation, research and exploitation over a wide range of photonics-related topics.
HOLOEYE now offers new dielectric mirror coated versions of their popular PLUTO phase only Spatial Light Modulators (SLMs). Based on reflective LCOS microdisplays delivering 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution with an 8 µm pixel pitch, the latest models in the PLUTO range enable use with higher incident power lasers due to the coating’s reduction of absorption.
Three models are currently available: the PLUTO-UV-043, PLUTO-VIS-056 and PLUTO-NIR-049 for use in the UV, visible and IR respectively. All PLUTO SLMs are plug & play, offer fast full digital addressing, and can be programmed with phase functions via a standard graphics card as an extended monitor device using the supplied software.
Please contact us for more details.
The Elliot Scientific February newsletter is now available. In this issue, we look at all the new products we are now offering – Prizmatix’s UHP-M DuaLED UV-Visible light source for microscopy, dielectric mirrored Spatial Light Modulators from HOLOEYE, a measurement system from Gamma Scientific for Near Eye Displays, and the latest from Energetiq – a tunable broadband plasma light source.

Energetiq‘s new Laser-Driven Tunable Light Source (LDTLS™) is a compact, fully integrated and highly stable tunable broadband light source based on their proven Laser-Driven Light Source (LDLS™) technology. The LDTLS™ utilises the EQ-77 LDLS™ source and features the highest brightness and output flux available in a tunable broadband product.
The water-cooled LDTLS™ offers an extremely long lifetime (approximately 9000 hours between bulb changes) for low cost of ownership. It has high stability, very low noise, and is coupled with a precision high-performance monochromator for accurate wavelength selection and repeatable light output across the range of 300 to 1100 nm.
The spectral resolution can be customised for application specific purposes and ranges in bandwidth from 1 to 10 nm. The fibre coupled output is both flexible and convenient for delivering wavelength selected light to precisely where it is needed. OEMs, please contact us for more information.

Elliot Scientific distribute a comprehensive range of high powered LED light delivery products for microscopy, spectroscopy, optogenetics, and other scientific research and industrial applications. Manufactured by Prizmatix, a scientist-led company that specialises in the design and manufacturing of ultra high-power LEDs, a range of power levels and wavelengths across the spectrum are available for applications that include…
- For microscopy and imaging: the powerful UHP-T LED series
- For optogenetics: single and dual wavelength systems for in-vivo and in-vitro research
- For custom setups:
- offering modularity and versatility
- fibre-coupled units with up to 11 different LEDs
For in-vivo and in-vitro optogenetics, Prizmatix offer a full range of modules that start from single wavelength plug-and-go kits, to multi-wavelength systems for activation and silencing in the same fibre. From light sources to cannulae, and everything in between, Prizmatix provides all the components necessary for experimenters in neuroscience, neurobiology, electrophysiology, biochemistry and biophysics. Typical systems have been constructed by researchers for:
- Detection & excitation
- Intensity monitoring
- In-line filtering, attenuation or polarisation
- Reflectance or fluorescence detection for in situ, in-vivo, or in-vitro applications
Prizmatix have extensively developed various photonics products for use in neuro and bioscience research such as optogenetics, as well as traditional chemistry, biology and physics. For example, fluorescence and Raman spectroscopy, microscopy, and absorption measurement are typical applications here. Elliot Scientific are always happy to advise, so contact us today for further information.
