Ocean FX Spectrometers for High Speed Acquisition

ocean fx high speed acquisition 01

Capture up to 3,000 Scans per Second

The newest Ocean Optics spectrometer, Ocean FX, is distinguished by features such as a high-sensitivity CMOS detector, onboard spectral buffering and Ethernet communications. But perhaps most exciting is the spectrometer’s remarkable acquisition speed – up to 3,000 scans per second, depending on the performance of its operating software and  the operating system and computer to which it is connected.

Ekspla and Light Conversion lead consortium to deliver a 5 TW laser system

DSC 0088

Ceremony held in the Residence of the Hungarian Ambassador in Vilnius, on the occasion of the contract made between the Lithuanian Ekspla/Liight Conversion consortium and the ELI-ALPS laser research center in Szeged, Hungary.

A unique OPCPA based laser system, providing 5 terawatts of output power at 1 kHz repetition rate has been produced by a cosortium led by Ekspla and Light Conversion. The system, named Sylos 1, was designed and build for the Extreme Light Infrastructure - Attosecond Light Pulse Source facilities (ELI-ALPS) located in Szeged, Hungary.

“This system is unique due to its outstanding combination of power and pulse duration” – noted Kestutis Jasiunas, EKSPLA CEO – “five terawatts establishes Sylos as one of the most powerful systems in the world generating 10 fs or shorter pulses at 1 kHz repetition rate. Secondly, it employs innovative OPCPA technology born and perfected at Vilnius University, Lithuania. Featuring comparatively simple and cost-effective layout OPCPA is a key approach in equipping the high intensity laser facility to reach attoseconds in deep UV regions.”

Ocean Optics IDRaman mini 2.0 Handheld Raman System

IDRaman mini 2.0 960x960

Identify. Authenticate. Verify.

The Ocean Optics IDRaman mini is the smallest, most powerful handheld Raman system available today. The IDRaman mini fits in the palm of your hand, yet is ruggedly dependable for fast, accurate Raman analyses ranging from chemical and explosive agent detection in the field to quality assurance and quality control sampling routines in the factory. The system includes a preloaded, editable library of about 30 Raman spectra and large libraries of up to 9,000 spectra are available for purchase.

The IDRaman’s  unique Raster Orbital Scanning (ROS) technology scans a tightly focused beam over a wide 2.5 mm sample area, dramatically improving the quality of the Raman measurement. ROS has benefits for liquid and solid samples, especially samples that are inhomogeneous and irregularly shaped. In addition, with ROS the low average power needed eliminates sample damage and the possible ignition of explosive samples.

Becker and Hickl Introduce Ultra-Fast Hybrid Detector

hpm photo 01 comp20

Becker and Hickl have released an ultra-fast version of their HPM-100 series hybrid detectors. The new HPM-100-07 detector has an IRF width of less than 38 ps, full width at half maximum, including the pulse width of a bh BDS-SM-405nm ps diode laser. The HPM-100-07 contains a Hamamatsu R10467-07 hybrid detector tube together with a preamplifier and the generators for the tube operating voltages in a single compact housing. The principle of the hybrid detector yields excellent timing resolution, a clean TCSPC instrument response function, high detection quantum efficiency, and extremely low afterpulsing probability. The absence of afterpulsing results in a substantially increased dynamic range of TCSPC measurements.
