Iridian filters now available from Elliot Scientific

The Iridian range of filters for imaging, fluorescence, Raman and optical spectroscopy is now available in the UK and Ireland through Elliot Scientific.

Iridian-Banner-0

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.

Please contact us for details, or visit our Iridian pages.

IRIS is the new option for Gamma Scientific’s RS-7 LED Light Sources

Gamma Scientific has just announced the release of their RS‐7 IRIS option that allows easy adjustment of the light source’s output intensity.

This new enhancement for the SpectralLED® family of uniform intensity tunable light sources considerably increases the dynamic range of the light source. It is particularly useful for irradiance testing and characterisation of bare sensors.

The stepper motor controlled iris provides a variable output aperture which is fully integrated into the light source architecture. Available for both the visible and SWIR output models, the standard RS‐7 firmware includes aperture control and additional API commands.

About the SpectralLED®

The RS‐7 base platform incorporates the latest LED technology available. The RS‐7 VIS series contains 35 discrete wavelength LEDs, delivering a nearly continuous spectrum from 380 to 1000 nm. This allows for an unprecedented colour gamut and applications otherwise impossible for traditional halogen or LED light sources.

The SpectralLED® SWIR series employs LEDs at 9 discrete wavelengths from 900 to 1700 nm in the short‐wave infrared portion of the spectrum, providing a fully programmable spectra with highly uniform and stable output.

The standard configuration incorporates a controller and all software for full spectral calibration with spectral fitting, preset storage and real‐time optical feedback in a variety of measurement units.

USB drivers for Windows, OSX and Linux platforms are included, and external interface and control can be easily achieved via simple ASCII commands.  Custom configurations are also available.  For more information, please contact us or visit: https://www.elliotscientific.com/Gamma-Scientific-Light-Sources

We would like to say a big thank you…

We would like to say a big thank you to the people who visited our booth at Photonics West 2019 and met with Dr. Adrian Knowles in his new role as Elliot Scientific’s Managing Director. You certainly made it a successful event all round for both him and us.

Many visitors were impressed by our Elliot|Martock compact stage portfolio. These precision engineered dovetail slides are offered in a range of sizes and travels, delivering smooth backlash-free motion in X, XY, XZ, YZ or XYZ directions. Of particular interest to some were the miniature rotation stages.

Our Optical Tweezers demonstration videos are always attention grabbers, and a number of biophysicists and scientists from other disciplines stopped by to discuss how our cost-effective systems could help them in their projects. Researchers working within tight budgets were delighted to hear that Elliot Scientific laser trapping could be added to their existing (expensive) microscope without the need to buy a whole new instrument.

Elliot|Martock Gold Series Flexure Stages also proved of interest to many involved in light, optics and electronics due to their versatility. These world-renowned devices offer superior manipulation in three axes, and with minimal arcuate displacement they enable nanometre positioning for critical applications that include fiber launch and waveguide alignment. A comprehensive range of standard and customisable accessories are available too.

If you didn’t get to see us and our products at Photonics West, please visit our website or contact us for more information.

 

 


Photonics West opens today – Elliot Scientific in Booth 4660

The annual Photonics West group of exhibitions and conferences organised by SPIE – the international society for optics and photonics – opens today and runs till Thursday at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.

Elliot Scientific is exhibiting in Booth 4660 – look out for our banner (right) and new background (below).

 

We will be demonstrating our renowned range of XYZ flexure stages and precision micro- and nano-positioning slides, our fully automated DAli3 alignment system, as well as showing our Optical Tweezers add-on for professional microscopes.

Photonex Europe Live! opens in Coventry tomorrow – Stand B10 for Elliot Scientific

Elliot Scientific returns to stand B10 at Photonex in Coventry tomorrow and Thursday, offering the chance to experience the quality of our internationally renowned Elliot|Martock range first hand.

Exported the world over, our XYZ flexure stages are used for alignment and fiber launch in research and production environments, while our portfolio of miniature translation and rotary stages are often incorporated into OEM products for the optical and semiconductor industries.

For the first time at Photonex we will have items from the Siskiyou catalogue, including their sought after IXF mirror mounts so you can discover how they deliver their exceptional pointing stability in thermally demanding situations.

Also new for 2018 are high speed lasers from IPG Photonics. Operating in the pico and femtosecond regimes, these green and IR lasers are ideal for scientific and medical research.

Finally, life scientists love our Prizmatix ultra high power LED light sources, so we thought you might like to see them too.
