piezosystem jena: Spotlight on the ScanXY 40

PXY 40 nanos 72dpi 250x150mm 0fe9d3209d

The ScanXY 40 by piezosystem jena is a 2D positioner known for its extremely low reaction times.  Thanks to a construction design based on the nanoX concept – two stacks per axis moving in opposite directions – the ScanXY 40 has not only a high stiffness but is also very dynamic. Typical tasks for this piezosystem are, for example, the positioning of light-weight optical components such as laser diodes or mirror prisms and process automating of handlingsystems, to name just a few.

Clark-MXR: 3D Tomography of opaque materials now available as a service and a tool


Clark-MXR Inc. now offers 3D Tomography characterization of opaque materials via serial sectioning as a fee-for-service.  In addition to providing a more than tenfold improvement in throughput, femtosecond laser based serial sectioning provides unique capabilities that are unmatched by other more traditional mechanical or focused ion beam (FIB) techniques.

By way of background, serial sectioning is a technique used to characterize the structure and composition of opaque materials in 3-dimensions (3D).   The surface of a material is imaged using a diagnostic technique such as photography or spectroscopy.  That layer is then removed to some predetermined depth and the exposed surface again imaged.  This process is repeated, usually hundreds of times, until a data set of 2D images is obtained that can then be assembled to provide a 3D profile of the material.  The process is sometimes referred to as 3D tomography.  It is about the only way to obtain information about the composition and structure of opaque materials.

Becker & Hickl PML-16 GaAsP multi-wavelength detector is 6 times more sensitive than predecessor with conventional cathode

Simpletau with mwflim rr

Becker & Hickl PML-16 GaAsP devices are 16-channel TCSPC detectors with highly efficient GaAsP cathodes. Signal recording is based on bh’s multi-dimensional TCSPC process. For every photon, the detector delivers a timing pulse and the number of the channel that detected the photon. From this information, the TCSPC module builds up a photon distribution over the times of the photons in the signal period and the channel number. The results is a set of individual optical signal waveforms for the 16 channels of the detector.

The PML-SPEC-GaAsP and MW-FLIM-GaAsP devices are combinations of the PML-16 GaAsP detectors with a polychromator. The polychromator splits the optical signal into its spectral components. These are detected by the 16 channels of the detector. The results is a set of optical waveforms for 16 wavelength channels. The PML-SPEC has a free-beam or an optical-fibre input, the MW-FLIM has a fibre-bundle input for connecting to non-descanned ports of multiphoton microscopes. All detectors connect directly to the bh TCSPC modules or the bh Simple-Tau systems, see below.

The PML-16 GaAsP, PML-SPEC GaAsP, and MW-FLIM GaAsP detectors are about 6 times more sensitive than their PML-16C predecessors with conventional cathodes. A comparison is shown in the figures below.

Lasermet's Orca laser blocking curtains: Certified laser blocking curtains for Class 4 and Class 3B lasers - for Hospital and Medical Environments; Clean Rooms, Universities, Laboratories and Research Establishments

Laser protection with laser safety curtains

To ensure Class 4 and Class 3B laser beams do not escape from laser laboratory or medical facilities, including hospital theatres, certified laser blocking material should be installed. Ordinary curtains are rarely capable of stopping a laser beam and specially-designed certified laser blocking material must be used (Certified to IEC/EN 60825-4).

Toptica: 2 W of high power tunable green-yellow lasers introduced


TOPTICA’s frequency-doubled diode lasers now reach 2 Watts output power at 560 nm wavelength with several nanometers tuning range, allowing to use diode laser-based technology around 560 nm with high power.

TOPTICA has released a new class of multi-Watt laser sources for use in the laboratory but also opening up opportunities for future OEM integration. Based on the TA-SHG pro product line, a resonantly frequency-doubled tapered amplified diode laser, more than 2 Watts of single frequency output covering the spectral range from 550 nm to 565 nm are now available. The dramatic leap towards higher power levels is possible due to proprietary tapered amplifier technology, modified electrical & thermal management and further improvements of the frequency-doubling resonator technology.

Princeton Applied Research PARSTAT 3000 Potentiostat | Galvanostat

The Princeton Applied Research PARSTAT® 3000 is a high-performance potentiostat engineered into a small foot-print for space conscious laboratory and/or application environments. The additional voltage measurement (6-WIRE) makes this instrument well suited for Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) on batteries as two impedance values can be simultaneously acquired. Users can assign impedance values to anode and cathode; across separators; or to individual cells in a stack.  Physical electrochemistry applications also benefit from using this input to capture pH measurements, temperature, or pressure by means of an external probe.
