  • 629 axial view of plasma

    High-energy UV lamp

    Products | 4 Aug 2017

    McPherson is pleased to announce new and improved stability with flow controlled McPherson windowless, hollow cathode UV lamp Model 629. This broad-spectrum source emits ionized gas emission lines with little or no absorption by neutral gas. Computer controlled gas flow and constant current power supply improve stability for better spectroscopy.

  • Mc pherson

    Amplifier on Vacuum-safe Ceramic Board

    Products | 22 Apr 2016

    McPherson VUV series photodiodes are used for the detection of UV, EUV and x-ray (wavelength range 1100 nm to .124 nm, energy range 1.13 eV to 1 keV) photons. Unlike common p-n junction diodes, the photodiodes do not have a doped dead-region and have zero surface recombination.

  • Sensor Spectral Test and Calibration

    Products | 8 Dec 2015

    The McPherson Spectral Test Station (STS) is for wavelength testing and calibration from LWIR to 200 nanometers and less. It is for sensor testing, process control, and calibration. It also works for ground-based calibration of flight sensors.

  • Actuator

    New support and actuator system also works in ultra-high vacuum

    Products | 21 Oct 2015

    Strut your stuff!McPherson introduces a new line of mechanical positioning systems with high load capacity and stiffness.
