Tomorrow, Laser Focus World has a webinar on robotic AR/VR/MR metrology – register now!

For near-eye displays to reliably meet performance standards and ensure high levels of user ‘immersion’, there is a need for manufacturers to quantitatively characterise their products in research, product development and production quality assurance. However, proper display metrology that correlates to the human eye perception is very difficult to achieve.
In this new webinar from Laser Focus World, Richard l. Austin and Sonika Obheroi will explain how the Gamma Scientific NED-LMD systems make these measurements routine.
Gamma Scientific offer the world’s first ‘robotic eye’ high resolution goniometric system to completely characterise near-eye displays by truly emulating the human eye and conforming to the latest standards being developed by IEC and SID.

Next week we’re at EUCAS in Glasgow with Lake Shore Cryotronics

EUCAS logoThe 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.

 


SPIE Optics + Photonics opens next week…

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:

If you’re not going to SPIE Optics + Photonics, then click on the above manufacturers to see their products on our website, or contact us for more information.

 


Modular fibre-optic temperature measurement via new Rugged Monitoring R501 (Video)

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.


Tomorrow we’re are exhibiting at The Advanced Materials Show

On Wednesday and Thursday, July 10th & 11th,  we are in Telford for the combined Advanced Materials and Ceramics UK shows.

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.

nPoint Piezo Nanopositioners now available through Elliot Scientific

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.
