Optics and lasers
Optical components and measurement systems, as well as different types of lasers for a full range of research and commercial applications.
The new OWIS® catalogue, edition GK 11, is available since the second quarter 2016. This includes on more than 700 pages the complete OWIS® programme of optical beam handling and positioning systems. In addition a separate chapter presents customer-specific options in the field of customized solutions.
Laser Lines’ Steve Knight takes a look at an ever-developing technique, multi photon microscopy.
CRAIC Technologies announces the addition of UV-visible-NIR transmission and reflectance polarization spectroscopy and imaging to CRAIC Technologies microspectrophotometers.
NYFORS TEKNOLOGI AB (publ) introduces its new portable optical fiber cleaver – the MINICLEAVERTM. The battery-operated cleaver is perfect for field splicing or in environments with limited space. It is compatible with most common factory and field splicers and produces cleave angles typically below 0.5 degrees.
Voice-Coil Direct Drive with Integrated Linear Encoder: Highly Dynamic Linear Stage for Scanning Applications
Magnetic direct drives have advantages over the classical motorized, spindle-based solutions in particular with respect to wear and dynamics. Since direct drives largely dispense with moving parts in the drivetrain, there is less friction and play, and therefore more precision.
Together with the announcement of the new MMS - Crate Controller Series CC2x and the hardware control box iCSmini2, iseg now releases the new version of the embedded server hardware and operating system. This brings unified control and configuration ability to almost every iseg power supply hardware.
Alrad Imaging is pleased to announce that Kowa has added a new ruggedized 1” lens series to its portfolio. The new HC-V Series 4MP lens series allows measurements without pixel deviation even in high vibration and shock environments and when the lenses are tilted.
Laser Quantum launch a complete 1GHz mode spaced frequency comb
Magnetic direct drives have advantages when compared to classical spindle-based solutions, especially with respect to wear and dynamics. Since they largely dispense with mechanical components, there is hardly any friction, less play and therefore more precision.
The SMARTSPLICER™ – NYFORS’s novel, advanced laser splicing and glassshaping system presented at Photonics West (Booth 5355)
At Photonics West 2016 in San Francisco, CA, NYFORS TEKNOLOGI AB (publ) is proud to present the SMARTSPLICER™ – a novel, advanced glass processing and optical fiber splicing platform for development and manufacturing of sensitive high power laser, sensor and telecommunication fiber components.

Zombie physics: When statistical analysis meets the undead
On April 26th, the impressive Four-Laser Guide Star Facility (4LGSF) was fully operational for the first time at the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT) of the Paranal Observatory in Chile.
Measurement of two-photon excitation spectra of fluorescence proteins with nonlinear Fourier-transform spectroscopy
Work published by Hashimoto et al., from Riken Advanced Science Institute, Japan, makes use of our venteon ultra laser (formally Known as Venteon OS) from Laser Quantum as part of their work into ‘Measurement of two-photon excitation spectra of fluorescence proteins with nonlinear Fourier-transform spectroscopy.’
In February 2016 the European commission approved funding for the new project PIX4life as part of the EU’s “Photonics21” program. TOPTICA is proud to support this unique program which pledges € 8.5 million to a consortium of several partners from academia and industry.
Stresstech Oy and DECTRIS Ltd. announce an agreement for the supply of Hybrid Photon Counting (HPC) strip detectors for Stresstech’s X-ray equipment.
