We’re @PhotonicsWest in San Francisco from tomorrow: Visit Elliot Scientific in Booth 4953

16022016241Tomorrow, Elliot Scientific will be exhibiting in Booth 4953 at Photonics West ( #spiephotonicswest ) where we will be demonstrating our renowned range of XYZ flexure stages and precision micro- and nano-positioning slides, our fully automated DAli 3 alignment system, and our optical trapping laser tweezer add-ons and upgrades for professional microscopes.

San Francisco’s Moscone Center is once again be the venue for this show and conference series organised by SPIE – the international society for optics and photonics.

The exhibition runs from January 30th to February 1st and more information can be found on the dedicated Photonics West 2018  website

Tweet a picture of our booth to @elliotsci and we’ll send the best photographer, as chosen by our panel of experts, an Elliot Scientific tee-shirt!

Photonics West opens next week – Elliot Scientific in Booth 4554

16022016241San Francisco’s Moscone Center will once again be the venue for the annual Photonics West group of exhibitions and conferences organised by SPIE – the international society for optics and photonics.

Elliot Scientific will be exhibiting in Booth 4554, demonstrating our renowned range of XYZ flexure stages and precision micro- and nano-positioning slides, our fully automated DAli 3 alignment system, and our optical trapping laser tweezer add-ons and upgrades for professional microscopes.

DAli 3 Automatic Alignment Systems available with MDE piezo-driven XYZ Positioners

Elliot Scientific is offering the DAli 3 Automatic Alignment Systems with a choice of MDE123 or MDE125 Elliot Gold™ Series piezo-actuated XYZ flexure stages.

Two systems are available. The E2323 comprises a model E2300 2-axes automated feedback piezo controller plus MDE123 Elliot Gold™ Series XYZ flexure stage fitted with piezo actuators providing 25 µm of piezo adjustment in each of the three axes, or the E2325 with 100 µm of piezo adjustment. Both systems also offer 2 mm of manual adjustment in each axis.

E2323_1200AThe Elliot Scientific DAli 3 is the latest version of our popular automated photonic device alignment system for the following applications:

  • Fibre-to-laser diode alignment
  • Fibre-to-waveguide alignment
  • Fibre-to-fibre coupling
  • Fibre array-to-device alignment
  • Compensation for epoxy drift during pigtailing
  • Compensation for drift during long-term characterisation
  • Simultaneous alignment of input & output fibres (or arrays) to waveguide device

A typical E2300 DAli 3 system now consists of our new 3-channel E1100 piezo controller, the USB-equipped DAli 3 interface, and a customer-supplied PC or laptop for driving the easy to use software. Although designed to complement the piezo-driven versions of the Elliot Gold™ Series range of flexure stages, such as the MDE123 and MDE125 described above, it is also suited to other piezo devices working on 0 to 150 volts.

For more information, please contact us.


New DAli 3: Latest in automated alignment for fibre optics and waveguides

E2300SQ500The Elliot Scientific DAli 3 is the latest version of our popular automated photonic device alignment system for the following applications:

•  Fibre-to-laser diode alignment
•  Fibre-to-waveguide alignment
•  Fibre-to-fibre coupling
•  Fibre array-to-device alignment
•  Compensation for epoxy drift during pigtailing
•  Compensation for drift during long-term characterisation
•  Simultaneous alignment of input & output fibers (or arrays) to waveguide device

A typical DAli 3 system now consists of our new 3-channel E1100 piezo controller, the USB-equipped DAli 3 interface, and a PC or laptop for driving the easy to use software. Although designed to complement the piezo-driven versions of the Elliot Gold™ Series range of flexure stages, it is also suited to other piezo devices working on 0 to 150 volts.

DAli 3 incorporates the latest in electronics and uses complex software algorithms to quickly deliver precision automated alignment. It does this by locating and optimising an optical feedback signal derived from the components being aligned. It then adjusts their relative position to optimise the signal and therefore their accurate alignment.

The software and hardware package includes many features to enhance use, while also providing the necessary flexibility to allow it to be incorporated into a wide range of photonic alignment tasks for development, test and production applications.


Photonics West opens next week: Elliot Scientific to launch DAli 3 in Booth 4555

MDE141 Riser Blocks with MDE330 XYZ Flexure Stage

San Francisco’s Moscone Center will once again be the venue for the annual Photonics West group of exhibitions and conferences organised by SPIE – the international society for optics and photonics.

Elliot Scientific will be exhibiting in the North Hall’s Booth 4555, giving visitors the chance to experience our world-renowned range of XYZ flexures, precision engineered compact slides and stages, and optical tweezers for laser trapping systems.

We will also be launching our new E2300 automated alignment system, the latest of our renowned DAli controllers for piezo-driven flexure stages.

The exhibition runs from February 16th to 18th and more information can be found on the dedicated Photonics West 2016 website here


Elliot Scientific in New Delhi next week: See us at Laser World of Photonics India

Elliot Scientific will be exhibiting for the first time in the sub-continent as part of the British Pavilion at Laser World of Photonics India. The exhibition takes place at Pragati Maidan in New Delhi from September 9th to the 11th.

We will be proudly showing our range of precision positioning equipment – from small to ultra-small slides, XYZ Flexure Stages, and Elliot Gold Series fibre alignment systems and accessories.

If you’re attending the show, then do not miss this opportunity to personally experience UK craftsmanship at its best. Find out how smooth Elliot Scientific opto-mechanics are in operation, and how they can help you achieve a new level in precision alignment. The Elliot Gold Series of flexure-based solutions are purchased by many leading universities and high-tech industries around the globe, with thousands in use every day in labs and clean rooms.

Elliot Scientific engineers will also be on hand to talk about the Optical Tweezers, automated alignment systemspiezo adjusters and controllers plus other systems we manufacture.

If you cannot get to the show, then contact us now with any questions you would like to ask us: We pride ourselves in offering Solution Science for Research and Industry.
