Tomorrow, the Photonex Roadshow returns to Scotland

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.


Tomorrow is a SUPA day for us

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.

MadMotor – a UHV-compatible piezo-driven micropositioning system from Mad City Labs

The MadMotor™-UHV is a piezo motor driven micropositioning system offering high precision alignment over long travel ranges under ultra high vacuum (UHV) conditions.

  • UHV compatible: 1 x 10-11 mbar
  • 10 mm range of motion
  • 100 nm step size (minimum)
  • Bakeable to 150 °C
  • Available in X, XY and XYZ configurations
  • Up to 6 kg load

Mad City Labs‘ experience in manufacturing equipment for use in UHV ensures that the MadMotor™-UHV is vacuum compatible to 1 x 10-11 mbar and can withstand extensive periods of baking at up to 150 °C.

The rigorous requirements of UHV operation have ensured careful design of the MadMotor™-UHV stages by the Mad City Labs engineering team to deliver robust and reliable operation within your application.

MadMotor™-UHV stages can travel up to 10 mm per axis with high resolution and excellent repeatability, while optional eddy current sensors can provide 500 nm of sensitivity over the entire travel range. A complete system is supplied as a 1, 2 or 3-axis piezo motor driven stage and Mad-Drive™ controller.

Please contact us for more details.


Long-range Z-axis nanopositioning stage is especially designed to hold multiwell plates

The Mad City Labs‘ Nano-ZL Series are long range, Z-axis nanopositioners specifically designed to hold multiwell plates used in biomedical research. High-throughput single cell fluorescence microscopy and high speed, high resolution confocal imaging can be accomplished while simultaneously adjusting the Z-axis position to remove the effects of multiwell plate irregularities.

The Nano-ZL Series has true flexure guided motion and contains internal position sensing for a resolution of better than 1 nm over the full 500 µm travel range, and sub-nanometer for the shorter 100 µm travel range. In addition to high resolution spatial imaging, the Nano-ZL step response allows entire Z-section acquisitions with minimal photo bleaching. For more information, please contact us.
