On Thursday, Photonex Scotland opens in Edinburgh

Photonex Scotland opens in Edinburgh on Thursday, 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 Edinburgh’s South Hall complex.

Elliot Scientific will be among the 25 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.

Come and talk to us about your project.


New IPG ultrafast fibre lasers for research now available through Elliot Scientific

IPG Photonics has developed a range of green, infrared, and mid-IR high speed fibre and fiber-to-bulk hybrid lasers operating in the pico and femtosecond regimes, making them ideal for scientific and medical research.

Ultrashort pulse durations between 10-11 and 10-13 seconds are generated by a master oscillator/ fibre power amplifier (MOFPA) architecture, and are particularly well suited for generating pulse energies from several microjoules to  about 1 mJ with repetition rates from 10 kHz to 3 MHz.

Elliot Scientific offers these pulsed lasers at various wavelengths, from UV to Mid-IR, allowing researchers to perform many different experiments. Material process engineering , such as flat panel displays; thin films; and semiconductor processing, can also benefit.

Features

  • Wide selection of wavelengths
  • Pulse energy is independent of PRR
  • Average power from 1 to 100 W
  • Pulse energy is independent of average power
  • PRR from 10 kHz to 3 MHz
  • Constant beam mode quality
  • Excellent pointing stability
  • Compact and efficient

New UV laser source for CRAIC Technologies’ 20/30 PV™ Microspectrophotometer

The introduction of new UV laser sources will dramatically enhance the capabilities of the 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer from CRAIC Technologies in terms of both fluorescence and photoluminescence microspectroscopy.

The major application will be to serve as an intense excitation source for fluorescence and photoluminescence (PL) microspectroscopy. This will broaden the range of materials that can be caused to emit photons via a luminescent process.

The 20/30 PV™ microspectrophotometer combines the latest technologies to allow the user to see and measure UV-visible-NIR range transmission, absorbance, reflectance, emission and fluorescence spectra of sample areas smaller than a micron across. Thin film thickness and colour spaces can also be determined.

Scientists in the UK and Ireland involved in forensics, geology, gemology, biochemistry and spectroscopy among others, contact us now to discuss specifications and pricing.

Introducing FEMTO-30: a high pulse energy ultrafast laser with flexible repetition rates

Fibercryst is the only manufacturer of short pulse lasers and amplifiers that utilise the innovative Single Crystal Fibre technology (SCF) – a technology that offers significant performance advantages over existing technologies.

The FEMTO-30 is Fibercryst’s latest and more powerful laser system. This 30 W laser can deliver pulse energies of 160 µJ (@ 100 kHz) in pulse widths of less than 800 fs, with repetition rates selectable between 100 kHz and 1 MHz.

A significant feature of this laser is the ability to easily and quickly change the repetition rate to favour the average power or the energy per pulse. This makes it ideal for:

  • Cutting and drilling of hard materials
  • Cold machining of polymers and composites
  • Micromachining and structuring of surfaces, for example medical devices and semiconductors

For more information about this or other lasers and amplifiers from Fibercryst, please contact us.
