We are in Edinburgh next week for IUPAB / EBSA

The joint 19th International Union of Pure and Applied Biophysics (IUPAB) and 11th European Biophysical Societies’ Association (EBSA) Congress takes place in Edinburgh next week.

From Sunday, July 16th to Thursday the 20th., the British Biophysical Society and the Biological Physics Group of the Institute of Physics (IOP) will host an outstanding scientific programme for this major international combined biophysics event. All areas of contemporary biophysics will be included in a varied programme covering single molecule studies to complex machineries.

Elliot Scientific will be demonstrating a complete system from our Optical Tweezers range that features tracking and force measurement on exhibition days: Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. You can also ask us about nanopositioning equipment for the microscope from Mad City Labs, as well as LED light sources and instruments designed for microscopy and optogenetics studies from Prizmatix, the LDLS – a novel super bright broadband lamp from Energetiq Technologies, and Spatial Light Modulators from HOLOEYE.

We can be found on Stand 40 within the Edinburgh International Conference Centre.

 


New precision source for current or voltage from Lake Shore

Lake Shore have announced the new Model 155 MeasureReady™ precision I/V source. Ideal for demanding scientific applications requiring a precise low-noise supply of current or voltage, for example electronic material characterisation, the Model 155 will be shipping later this year.

Supplying 1 W maximum from DC to 100 kHz over a broad output range, these power supplies deliver a solid foundation for I/V curve, Hall effect, and other fundamental measurements.

The clutter-free touch display with a unique TiltView™ screen presents a natural and engaging user interface. No confusing buttons or long learning curves make the Model 155 as easy to use as a smartphone. With similar connectivity – Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB, plus LAN – it offers convenient remote operation via LabVIEW™, a custom PC interface, or mobile app.

Please contact us for more information, or download the datasheet.

Tomorrow and Wednesday, visit Elliot Scientific at SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation in Edinburgh

sky-night-space-galaxyFor only two days during the prestigious SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation conference in Edinburgh, will developers and users of telescopes and instrumentation be able to visit our stand at the event’s exhibition. Elliot Scientific is featuring products from leading companies such as Energetiq Technology, Gamma ScientificLake Shore Cryotronics and Vescent Photonics.

EQ99XFC_SQFrom tomorrow, our team will be on hand to discuss how the technologies available through Elliot Scientific can help deliver measurement solutions for the problems scientists encounter involving light, magnetic fields, or cryogenic temperatures. We will also be demonstrating two novel light sources – a revolutionary broadband ultra-bright plasma-based lamp and a new tunable LED system that can be programmed to mimic virtually any illuminant or reflected spectrum, plus spectroscopy and laser modules, and more.

The SPIE Astronomical Telescopes + Instrumentation Exhibition take places at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre on Tuesday and Wednesday, June 28th & 29th. For more information, please contact us.


April 2016 Newsletter Out Now

New SpectralLED Tunable LED Light Source from Gamma Scientific

The new SpectralLED™ tunable light source from Gamma Scientific combines the output of 30 discrete LEDs – each having a different centre wavelength – to produce output that can be programmed to closely match virtually any illuminant source or the spectrum of any illuminant reflected by a target.

SpectralLED™ can sweep through wavelengths to simulate a scanning monochromator, but with the advantage of no moving parts. In addition to superior spectral resolution and accuracy, the SpectralLED™ also offers about 10x higher brightness than any competitive product. This allows measurements over a much larger, linear dynamic range, and is sufficient to illuminate virtually any detector at levels up to saturation.

A combination of DC constant current drivers, optical feedback, and thermoelectric cooling maintains the source’s high luminance accuracy in real time, allowing brightness to be varied directly (through drive current), rather than by pulse width modulation (PWM). This eliminates any flicker.

SpectralLED-Transparent-Trimetric-Rendering-Final-500x500The SpectralLED™ will allow sensor, camera and system manufacturers to perform a wide variety of calibration and testing functions with a single instrument. Applications include smartphones and tablets, DSLR cameras, cinematography camcorders, diagnostic medical imaging, technical and industrial photography, or any OEM camera, sensor or detector application. White balance, spatial uniformity, defects, linearity, dynamic range, signal-to-noise, responsivity and ISO speed are specific tests the SpectralLED™ is ideally suited for carrying out.
