Gamma Scientific in finals for another Sapphire Award

Tonight, aboard the USS Midway in San Diego, Gamma Scientific will be among the finalists in the Solid State Lighting Enabling Technologies and Test category at this year’s Sapphire Awards for their 940 LED-200 Series Goniometer.

The 940 LED-200 Series Goniometer is optimised for the precise measurements of angle dependent spatial radiation properties of LEDs and small luminaires. It can accommodate sample sizes up to 200 mm in diameter, and can be combined with a Gamma Scientific Spectroradiometer or UDT Series photometer.

With a spectroradiometer, the goniometer can measure luminous flux, colour coordinates and CRI; while a photometer connected goniometer can provide fast measurements of spatial light distribution.

Applications

  • Rapid, precise characterisation of of spatial light distribution
  • Accurate measurement of LED luminaires, lamps and modules
  • Models optimised for specific sample sizes
  • Conform with CIE, DIN and IES standards

For more information on the availability of this equipment for UK and Irish LED manufacturers and users, please contact us.

We’re at BiOS, then Photonics West, from Saturday

Lookout for our new pop-up background (right) at the forthcoming BiOS and Photonics West exhibitions in February.

Starting on the 1st for just two days, BiOS is the most important biomedical optics conference in the field. Topics covered include biomedical optics, diagnostics and therapeutics, biophotonics, OCT, neurophotonics, nanophotonics, optogenetics, and more.

Elliot Scientific is exhibiting alongside digital holographic imaging (DHM) specialist Lyncée Tec in Booth 8480. They make the invisible visible for researchers in life and materials science through DHM®, a non-scanning non-contact technology that instantly delivers 3D and 4D topography, while we will be showing Optical Tweezers and other precision positioning systems.

Then, from Tuesday February 4th, we are in Booth 4569 at Photonics West – the premier photonics and laser event – with much more on display from our Elliot Scientific and Elliot|Martock ranges.

Do drop by and say hello!

 

 


Rugged Monitoring reveal new OEM fibre optic temperature sensor module

Rugged Monitoring has developed the O201 as a compact din-rail mounted standalone module for OEMs that can be easily installed in equipment that requires fibre optic temperature sensing.

Based on proven Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) technology, this multi-channel  temperature monitor is available in 2, 4, 6 or 8 channels. Up to thirty-two O201 units can be daisy-chained via Modbus, CANBUS or DNP3.0 to construct a 256 channel monitoring system.

Delivering higher accuracy (0.2 °C, relative) and 100% repeatability over a wide measurement range (-269 °C to +300 °C), the O201 monitor does not need calibration or curve matching compensation when measuring temperature in harsh conditions such as EMI, RFI, microwave and high voltage environments.

The O201 has a single ‘system fault’ relay, and an option for an integrated analogue card (up to 8 channels) for outputting measurements as current / voltage levels.

The module is compatible with a wide range of fibre optic temperature sensors from both Rugged Monitoring and other companies. For more information, please contact us.


New Thermal Management Systems for HOLOEYE SLMs

HOLOEYE have engineered special thermal management systems for their PLUTO and GAEA Spatial Light Modulator for use in situations requiring temperature control, such as an application involving a high power laser or where temperature fluctuations colud affect results.

The TMS 001 electrically cools or heats an SLM that is in contact with a Peltier element and passive heat sink, while the TMS 002 is actively temperature controlled by water.

HOLOEYE’s TMS configuration software runs on a PC and communicates with the device. This simple to use software automatically recognises which model of TMS is being used and allows you to set up a target temperature to maintain the SLM at. It will also log data and display it in real time graphically. The temperature of the SLM can be maintained at ambient, or above or below it.

For more information, please contact us or visit our HOLOEYE TMS page.

Metamaterials webinar on Thursday sponsored by CRAIC Technologies – the Microspectroscopy People

CRAIC Technologies are sponsoring a webinar entitled Metamaterials Design and Characterization with UV–VIS–NIR Microspectroscopy. It is being hosted by PhysicsWorld, and takes place this Thursday, November 14th at 3pm GMT.

Dr Yash Shah

Briefly, Dr Yash Shah from the Xtreme Light Group at Glasgow University will talk about creating polarisation-insensitive plasmonic filters with narrow linewidths, and his novel experiments conducted with a microspectrophotometer to collect Stokes polarimetry measurements.

Dr Jon Burdett – lead applications scientist at CRAIC Technologies – will introduce CRAIC’s microspectrophotometers and advise on microspectrophotometer experiments.

Dr J. J. Burdett

You can register for the event by signing up here.

CRAIC microspectrophotometers can be viewed here on our website.
