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.
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.
We’ve added a variety of new and existing EXFO products for fibre test and measurement to our website:
- CT440 – Optical Component Tester: A compact tester for fast and accurate characterisation of passive optical components
- CTP10 – Component Test Platform: Evaluate passive components swiftly and efficiently
- Optical Wave Expert – DWDM Channel Checker and OTDR: Integrated channel power validation and reflectometry characterisation
- Optical Xplorer – The Fibre Optic Multimeter: For link verification and embedded fault tracking
- OSA20 – High Performance Optical Spectrum Analyser: The fastest optical spectrum analyser of its kind
- T100S-HP – High Power Tuneable Laser: The essential instrument for any optics lab

The European Conference on Applied Superconductivity (EUCAS) comes to Glasgow next week, running from the 1st to the 5th of September.
Lake Shore Cryotronics are exhibiting from Monday the 2nd., and Elliot Scientific will be supporting them in demonstrating their range of sensors and instruments for cryogenic temperature measurement and control.
The conference and exhibition will be taking place at the Scottish Event Campus (SEC) on Exhibition Way.
On Sunday the SPIE Optics + Photonics (#SPIEOpticsPhotonics) begins. With world-class speakers presenting on the latest research, plus conferences on Nanoscience – with a special shout out for Optical Trapping and Optical Micromanipulation XVI, Organic Photonics, Electronics and Optical Engineering, it promises to be an exciting event.
The following Tuesday, a three day expo opens featuring over 150 exhibitors, a number of whom we distribute for here in the UK and Ireland. So, if you’re in San Diego next week, do drop by and say hello to our friends at these booths:
- #325 Micro Laser Systems, Inc. for collimators and laser beam expanders
- #432 OZ Optics Ltd. for fibre optics components and patchcords
- #620 nPoint, Inc. for piezo-driven nanopositioning flexure stages
- #623 Lake Shore Cryotronics for low temperature and magnetic field products
- #730 Siskiyou Corporation for mounts, stages, manipulators and more in opto-mechanics
The Rugged Monitoring portfolio of fibre-optic temperature monitors continues to expand. Their latest addition, the R501 chassis, accepts a range of I/O modules for real-time monitoring of up to 256 fibre-optic and other sensors for measurement of temperature, pressure, AC current, AC voltage, DC current, DC voltage and more. It supports both rack mount and distributed installation.
It has been developed to offer an upgradeable and flexible solution for the changing needs of customers, and a short video presentation on it is below.
The fibre-optic enabled modules and other I/O modules use the Dinrail mount, and can be daisy chained to the central CPU module, communicating over CANBUS/MODBUS. Distributed modules can also be directly connected to a datalogger, for example CAN-Logger, while Rugged Connect is an advanced software package available for data visualisation, configuration and reporting.
Like other Rugged products, the R501 can be used in a wide range of applications. These are not limited to Aviation, Automotive, Cryogenic, Battery Bank/Racks, Medical, Semiconductor, Utility, and R&D. It’s wide measuring range (-271 °C to +300 °C), high precision and complete immunity to RFI, EMI, microwave radiation, and high voltages make it an obvious choice for temperature measurement in extreme conditions.
For more information, please contact us.
If you are attending, drop by our stand (1211) to talk to us about the broad range of equipment we offer for researchers in materials science.
From Digital Holographic Microscopes from Lyncée Tec and Confocal Raman Microscopes from WITec, to vibrating sample magnetometers and probe stations from Lake Shore Cryotronics. We can also offer vibration isolation solutions from Accurion and Kinetic Systems of Boston.
We look forward to seeing you.
The Elliot Scientific June 2019 Newsletter: In this issue we welcome nPoint and their range of piezo-actuated nanopositioning flexure stages, and Microscope Heaters who do what it says on their tin – heat microscopes with fanless incubation systems. We also announce that our Optical Tweezer systems now come with Microsoft’s Windows 10, and that EXFO have launched the Optical Xplorer – the world’s first OFM. Plus Laser World of Photonics in Munich next week and a whole host of materials science and microscopy trade shows coming up next month.

Elliot Scientific is pleased to announce that it has been selected by nPoint, Inc. to be the exclusive UK and Ireland distributor of their nanopositioning solutions.
nPoint specialises in piezo actuator driven flexure stages available in one, two or three axes of motion. In conjunction with their ultra-precision motion control scanners and controllers, users can achieve the highest levels of performance available in the marketplace. Typical application areas are:
Life Science / Microscopy – piezo stages provide accurate, fast, and repeatable motion that enable high-throughput data acquisition and processing for techniques such as super resolution microscopy, sample scanning, autofocus, and cell tracking.
Semiconductor / Data Storage – nanopositioners are used in production, development, and inspection of silicon wafers and hard disk recording heads.
Optics – high speed nanopositioners enable movement of an optic for a multitude of precision applications such as scanning, laser beam steering, phase shifting, dithering and focusing.
AFM / Materials Science – piezo stages have been traditionally used as closed-loop scanners for Atomic Force Microscopes, offering extremely low out-of-plane motion, no piezo drift, exceptional scanning linearity, and longer travel ranges.
Photonics Packaging / Communications – in fibre optics, nanopositioning stages have become critical for speedy and optimal alignment duties.
Elliot Scientific will be demonstrating nPoint technology at various UK trade events this year, and looks forward to enabling researchers and OEMs achieve significant benefits from incorporating nPoint systems within their applications.
Early next week, a webinar entitled Raman Microscopy for Microparticle Analysis: Find, Classify and Identify is being broadcast by WITec and Nature.
It takes place on Tuesday, June 4th at 16:00 BST, that is 08:00 PDT, 11:00 EDT, and 17:00 CEST.
Dr. David Steinmetz and Dr. Miriam Böhmler from WITec GmbH will give an introduction to Raman microscopy and automated particle analysis.
They will be followed by Dr. Natalia Ivleva, from TU Munich, who will present her work on microplastic pollution in environmental samples as an application example.
For more information and registration, please visit the webinar homepage.
The Iridian range of filters for imaging, fluorescence, Raman and optical spectroscopy is now available in the UK and Ireland through Elliot Scientific.
Scores of filters designed for bandpass – both short and long, edge pass, narrow notch and dichroic mirrors have been added to our website.
They are used in many spectroscopic investigations such as flow and emission cytometry, excitation and emission fluorescence, and more. Imaging filters for use in machine vision applications are available too.
We can also advise on custom filters for very specific scientific applications, and welcome OEM enquiries.
Tomorrow, Elliot Scientific will be exhibiting EXFO test systems at the Oxford Day of Photonics. This free (registration required) event is being held on Wednesday,April 24th in the University’s Department of Engineering Science.
The programme will include a broad range of presentations from researchers at the University of Oxford, and elsewhere.
We look forward to seeing you there.
