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.

Single Crystal Fiber Lasers are in the news: Taranis covered by Laser Focus World

Fibercryst’s ultra-fast lasers and amplifiers utilise their revolutionary Taranis Single Crystal Fibre (SCF) modules to enable higher energy per pulse, higher average power, and easy to use flexibility between energy and repetition rate, and better beam qualities from small footprint devices.

In this month’s Laser Focus World magazine, an in-depth article about Fibercryst’s innovative Single Crystal Fiber amplification technology has been published. You can read Single crystal fibers amplify power in ultrashort-pulse lasers here.

Industrial Laser

OutputEndTaranis technology is the heart of the Fibercyst FEMTO, a powerful industrial femtosecond pulse width laser for high quality micromachining, offering output powers up to 25 W for high throughput.

Typical applications include: cutting and drilling of hard materials, cold machining polymers or composites, and micromachining / structuring of surfaces, especially glass, ceramics and sapphire. A key 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.

Seed Amplifier

The Taranis Amplifier System is a stand-alone add-on unit that allows a developer to increase the power and energy output of an existing laser installation.

The amplifier design also incorporates Fibercryst’s unique Taranis technology – a single crystal fibre amplifier ideal for short pulse amplification that delivers a high intensity, linearly polarised laser beam with superb quality and adjustable repetition rate.

The amplifier accepts a wide range of fibre-coupled or free propagation mode seed lasers, boosting them to a higher average power, higher peak power (up to 30 MW) and higher pulse energy. Output is to free space.

Further details about these and other Fibercryst products can be obtained by contacting us.


Three new PLUTO SLMs get dielectric mirror coating for increased power handling

LCOS_HeadHOLOEYE 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.

 


New High Brightness Tunable Broadband 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.

Laser users love novel flip filter design that modifies eye protection

NoIR LaserShields are now shipping the CE-certified Frame 40 spectacle. With its novel flip mechanism, which allows for a secondary filter to be brought into play in certain applications, users can benefit in situations where a modification of the passband of the fixed filter is required.

In this example, the fixed filter is FG1 glass for IR sources above 900 nm, and the secondary filter is the AXX which blocks UV and IR in between 700 and 900 nm.
