New modular test system for networks from EXFO

EXFO has released their next-generation modular test system in the form of the LTB-8 Rackmount Platform (with video), a versatile solution that addresses the many testing requirements found within today’s data networks.

The LTB-8’s small format, ultra-powerful processor and highly intuitive interface gives the lab user an optimised instrument to run dedicated test applications simply and efficiently for technologies such as Ethernet, OTN, Fibre Channel, SONET/SDH and more.

  • In-rack or tabletop
  • 8 hot-swappable modules
  • RAID data storage
  • USB, LAN, Sync and AMT ports
  • High performance on-board computer
  • Multi-user and remote access capability

An upgrade path for existing users of the IQS-600 modular test platform, enabling migration from the old to the new, has been mapped out by EXFO so please contact us for details and trade-in offers.


Introducing Single Crystal Fibre Laser Systems – New products from Fibercryst

_DSC0714Elliot Scientific is pleased to introduce Fibercryst, the only manufacturer of short pulse lasers and amplifiers utilising the innovative Single Crystal Fibre technology (SCF).

Originally developed from a series of University research programs, the SCF technology has been refined and commercialised by Fibercryst and patented jointly with the Institut d’Optique, and offers significant performance advantages over existing technologies. The products range from a full featured femtosecond micromachining laser, through a stand alone commercial amplifier, to individual amplifier modules:

  • FEMTO is Fibercryst’s powerful industrial femtosecond pulse width laser offering output powers up to 25 W for high throughput, high quality micromachining. Based on Taranis technologies, pulse energies in excess of 80 µJ (@ 100 kHz) in pulse widths of less than 900 fs can be generated along with repetition rates selectable between 100 kHz and 2 MHz.
  • Taranis Amplifier Systems are designed for a wide range of seed lasers providing either fibre coupled or free propagation mode inputs. The Taranis amplifier boosts a laser’s high average power, high peak power (up to 30 MW) and high pulse energy to free space.
  • Taranis Laser Gain Modules are a unique solution to provide high peak power and high energy amplification using a simple and compact design. By using a single-crystal with a long length and a small diameter, short pulse amplification delivering a high intensity, linearly polarised laser light with superb beam quality and adjustable repetition rate can be achieved.
  • Sub-nanosecond mJ laser: Fibercryst also offers an affordable, unique 1064 nm sub-ns laser system delivering more than 3 MW of peak power for use in research and test labs. Designed using MOPA architecture as a standalone unit combining a commercial 500 ps seed laser with the Fibercryst Taranis amplifier, it takes full advantage of the technology to provide a polarised beam, TEM00 output and 2 mJ of pulse energy for applications in LIBS, LIDAR & nonlinear optics; Supercontinuum, OPO, THz generation; and the biosciences.

For more information about these new innovative products, please contact us, or visit the Fibercryst pages on our website.

New Single and Multi-Channel Laser Modules from AKELA

AKELA Laser Corp. are now offering single and multi-channel laser diode modules in a variety of wavelengths from 635 to 1950 nm. These new modules offer integrated cooling and drive electronics for plug-and-play use, and can be configured using either a USB port or by external voltages.

Specifically designed for 100 micron, 0.22NA fibres and providing pulsed or CW up to 2 Watts per channel, they offer several different emergency shut-off options and are eminently suitable for both R&D and OEM applications.

Higher power levels will shortly become available as well as modules designed for the medical market with built-in accessories such as photodetectors, aiming beams, blast shields, and fibre sensors.

The laser modules are available in the following configurations: single channel; multi-channel with independently addressable outputs; and multiple outputs controlled by a single driver.

Please contact us for further information.

For more information please visit our Akela Laser pages or contact us for specifications and pricing.


AKELA Laser Corporation introduces new Configurable Modules plus powerful Red, NIR, and IR Diodes

AKELA Laser Corporation has released single and multi-channel laser diode modules in wavelengths from 635 to 1950 nm, part of a phased introduction of a new range for 2013.

The laser diode modules, designed for 0.22 na 100, 200 and 400 micron fibres – or free space use – and providing up to 25 Watts CW power, are ideal for research and development.

Equipped with integrated cooling and drive electronics for plug-and-play use, the modules are available in the following configurations: single channel; multi-channel with independently addressable outputs; and multiple outputs controlled by a single driver.

Configurable Laser Module

This new unit from AKELA is the most versatile and configurable diode laser module on the market today. With its individually addressable emitters, the module can operate at up to five wavelengths from one fibre, making it convenient for use in R&D settings. It fits standard high-power thermoelectric  systems, making integration easier, and meets stringent industrial and medical requirements.

Further development of these new modules will offer increasingly higher power levels as well as built-in accessories such as photodetectors, aiming beams, blast shields, and fibre sensors.
