Green lasers from IPG Photonics aid science and medical research

IPG Photonics makes a number of fibre laser systems available specifically to the research community.

CW Green Fibre Lasers
A variety of science and medical research applications can benefit from a green laser and IPG’s GLR series of single-mode, single-frequency, linearly polarised continuous wave (CW) 532 nm fibre lasers with output powers up to 30 W are ideal for these purposes.

  • Diagnostics or particle imaging
  • Holography & interferometry
  • Laser trapping & pumping
  • Velocimetry & flow visualisation

These highly efficient and reliable lasers feature a super-compact lightweight optical head connected to an air-cooled rack-mounted main laser console. The all-fibre construction allows for full range adjustment of output power without changes in power stability or beam mode parameters.

More eye protection from lasers: NoIR LaserShields expands range in UK

With the news of multiple high-profile incidents involving laser pens being pointed at passenger aircraft; Elliot Scientific welcomes the recent addition of four more CE-certified laser filters and several new stylish frames to our existing NoIR LaserShields® range. The filters are:female-31

AG4 – blocks UV and 532 nm green light sources

YG5 – blocks IR lasers operating around 1064 nm

RT1 & RT2  – attenuate UV, 532 nm green and near-IR from about 800 to 1064 nm, making them ideal for visual alignment applications or laser pointer protection

Eyes can be permanently damaged by direct or reflected exposure to lasers, high-power LEDs and plasmas – arc welding for example.

NoIR safety eyewear is designed to absorb specific light energies, and must be selected by considering source wavelength(s) and peak irradiance, required optical density (OD), visual light transmittance, field of view, effects on natural colour rendition and frame comfort.

A number of frame styles are now also available in white, while an extra small model has been introduced for petite faces, adolescents and pre-teens. This will allow paediatric, medical and dental services involving laser treatments to offer better eye protection for children.

Your eyesight is important! Please contact us if you work with, or might be affected by, lasers or any other intense light source.

Retinal injury occurs from exposure to visible, such as the possible Blue Light Hazard effect, or near IR energy (400-1400 nm), while corneal or lens damage results from UV (190-400 nm) and IR (1400-11000 nm) exposure.

 

 


New Green Diode Laser for the more demanding application

“Micro Laser Systems has designed this laser to ensure source imperfection is a thing of the past”

Micro Laser Systems (µLS) has introduced a high stability green diode laser with diffraction limited performance for more demanding applications. These include: confocal microscopy, flow cytometry, fluorescence excitation, particle analysis, direct laser writing and metrology.

This new laser in the Lepton IV OEM series delivers a circular Gaussian beam with high output stability, has a low power requirement, and is built into a smaller package size when compared to typical Argon and diode pumped lasers. Output power is up to 40 mW and can be continuous wave, pulsed, or modulated, while the low wavefront error allows for the generation of micron and  sub-micron spots sizes, or the production of a large clean beam for illumination.

The OEM units are available with or without temperature control – depending on your application – and are provided with numerous threaded mounting holes for secure installation.

For more information on this model, other wavelengths available in this series, or the extensive µLS range of collimators, free-space, and fibre-coupled lasers, then do contact us now.


Blue, Green and Red laser light from Cyto-Lite™

Cyto-Lite Multi-wavelength Laser Engine for Life Science ResearchCyto-Lite is an exciting new laser illumination source, from Mad City Labs for life science and other researchers, that outputs three colours through a single fibre. The key wavelengths are:

  • 405 nm
  • 532 nm
  • 640 nm

The characteristics of each laser line can be controlled independently via the Cyto-Lite™ software’s streamlined user interface, making it a very flexible instrument for use in bioscience facilities and academic research laboratories.

Elliot Scientific introduces Sperian Laser–Gard®

Laser pointers are an increasing hazard for pilots

Laser pointers are an increasing hazard for pilotsLaser pointer beams cause distracting glare and pose a temporary flash blindness hazard to pilots and security personnel.

As laser attacks on aircraft are doubling each year worldwide, with helicopter and civilian pilots at a higher risk, Elliot Scientific is introducing Sperian’s Laser–Gard® aviator eyewear to offer more protection than high-end designer sunglasses selling at the same price point.

Available in a choice of truly affordable frame styles, featuring multiple adjustments for comfort, the patented lenses are available in two versions to ensure that pilots and law enforcement personnel are protected around the clock:

  • Soothing bronze coloured sunglass tint for the day
  • Unique salmon coloured lens that provides excellent night time vision

Laser-Gard® combines laser protection with traffic signal colour-recognition and unparalleled comfort, making it possible for anyone exposed to these lasers to do their job safely and effectively.
