Press Releases

The GeoLasPro is a self-contained laser ablation system for sample introduction in high-resolution LA-ICP MS (laser ablation inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry). It is designed for geological and nuclear physics research.

MPB Communications has harnessed up to 1W of CW power in the 580nm yellow wavelength region from a fibre laser. It generates a narrow-line, diffraction limited, linearly polarised visible output.

Pacer Components has introduced the OVTL09LGA LEDNIUM series of high-luminance, 10W LED sources from Optek. The series is used in the automotive interior and exterior lighting, and architectural lighting markets.

Photon has added the M2 Wizard option to its NanoScan beam measurement instrument. The M2 Wizard uses a step-by-step procedure known as the Rayleigh method to measure the M2 parameter.

Lambda Research has announced the latest release of its illumination design software, TracePro 3.3.6, which is compatible with another new product, TracePro Bridge for SolidWorks.

Pro-Lite Technology LLP has introduced LaserVision’s new low cost safety eyewear offering protection across the entire visible wavelength spectrum, making it of particular interest for those working with LEDs.

Lambda Photometrics has introduced a range of piezo-driven translation stages from Physik Instrumente (PI). The new P-611 series offers five models of horizontal and vertical stages with one to three axes.

Optis has launched the OptisWorks Studio product, which allows users to design both optics and mechanics using just one interface. No CAD software is required to work with OptisWorks Studio.

To be accessible to a wider range of applications, such as LIBS and plasma monitoring, Avantes has extended its spectrometer platform with the AvaSpec-3648-USB2, a new detector type, which supports a larger range of integration times.

The iCAP spectrometer provides excellent resolution, stability and sensitivity and excellent detection limits, which enable enhanced productivity, greater ease of operation and reduced cost of ownership.

Ocean Optics has introduced the QE65000, a highly-sensitive modular spectrometer, available through BFI Optilas. The QE65000 can achieve up to 90 per cent quantum efficiency with high signal-to-noise and rapid signal processing speed.

The Jade series of IR cameras from Cedip Infrared Systems are suited to spectroscopy applications. The Jade SWIR provides excellent spectral response, and operates at 100fps at full image size.
