Inspirational speakers at Photonex Scotland

Photonex Scotland Photonics Roadshow and ConferenceXmark Media has chosen a new venue for their annual Scotland event. Photonex, the event where light technologies come alive, will take place in the centrally located South Hall at the University of Edinburgh on Thursday 14th June 2018.

Appealing to anyone working with photonics and light technologies, the exhibition provides scientists the opportunity to get up-close and personal to the very latest equipment on the market. Companies demonstrating their latest solutions include Andor, Hamamatsu, Princeton Instruments and Thorlabs to name just a few.

Aerotech’s Infinite Field of View Solves the Spot Size Versus Field of View Conundrum

Aerotech Ltd | Stand S7

Technical challenges abound in the pursuit of quality parts from additive manufacturing powder-bed processes. Many of these challenges are interdependent and therefore compromises are frequently made that result in an additive machine with mediocre resolution and less than desirable build volume. Aerotech's technology and expertise eliminate these compromises, giving OEM and end-user machine builders the ability to increase field of view, limit variations in energy/power density, control laser pulses as a function of position, maximize yield, and eliminate thermal instability.

Miniature, steel, motorised linear stages with built-in controllers and linear encoders

Miniature, steel, motorised linear stages with built-in controllers and linear encodersLaser 2000 | Stand S28

Zaber's X-LRM-DE series products are motorised linear stages with integrated controllers. An integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. The X-LRM-DE's hardened steel construction and recirculating ball bearing guide provide exceptional rigidity and thermal stability. High stiffness makes this stage ideal for multi-axis configurations or applications where excellent stability under cantilever loads is required.

Precise Positioning over Long Distances FLEXPOINT® Long Range Laser Module

Precise Positioning over Long Distances FLEXPOINT® Long Range Laser ModuleLaser Components | Stand S5

With its FLEXPOINT® Long Range Line Module, LASER COMPONENTS has developed a highly-precise positioning tool for long distances. Even at 50m, the line is only 4m long and can be adjusted to line widths of a few millimetres with an easy-to-use focusing device. The FLEXPOINT® LR-L module is available with red (660nm) or green (520nm) lines. Customers have the choice of any output power in a range between 5mW and 30mW.

New IPG ultrafast fibre lasers for research now available through Elliot Scientific

New IPG ultrafast fibre lasers for research now available through Elliot ScientificElliot Scientific | Stand S19

IPG Photonics has developed a range of green, infrared, and mid-IR high speed fibre and fiber-to-bulk hybrid lasers operating in the pico and femtosecond regimes, making them ideal for scientific and medical research. Ultrashort pulse durations between 10-11 and 10-13 seconds are generated by a master oscillator/ fibre power amplifier (MOFPA) architecture, and are particularly well suited for generating pulse energies from several microjoules to about 1 mJ with repetition rates from 10 kHz to 3 MHz.

All-in-one Lab Test & Measurement Combines 10 Different Instruments in One

Laser 2000 | Stand S28

All-in-one Lab Test & Measurement Combines 10 Different Instruments in OneMany laboratories hold multiple test and measurement instruments that occupy precious workspace and produce unnecessary clutter. If this sounds familiar, then you’ll find you can replace most of them with a single device: the Moku:Lab. Moku:Lab brings you high-speed and configurable digital signal processing, allowing you to measure, record, and generate signals from DC to 200 MHz and seamlessly switch between typical laboratory instruments in a matter of seconds.

Powerful UVB LEDs for Fluorescence Microscopy

Powerful UVB LEDs for Fluorescence MicroscopyLaser Components | Stand S5

LG Innotek is continually increasing the performance of its UV LEDs. At the UVB wavelength of 305nm, LASER COMPONENTS now off ers LEDs that achieve 110mW from a single emitter. They are used in the 6060 single-chip series as well as the 6868 series, which features four diodes which are integrated into one housing. Together they deliver outputs of 300mW and more. LEDs with the same power levels are also available for the UVC wavelength 278nm.

TLC Optics - a clever solution

TLC Optics - a clever solutionLaser Components | Stand S5

For high power laser applications, thermal lensing can be an issue. Focal length can vary with running time as a result of heat build-up in optics due to power throughput. The TLC, or Thermal Lensing Compensation optic design from Haas Laser Technologies, passively compensates for thermal lensing for high power collimators and focal lenses. Thermal lensing for lasers with powers in excess of 1kW is reduced to less than the Rayleigh range of the lens design, through careful selection of materials and optical design.
