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.

CryoSpectra lowers the temperature with new K90 cryorefrigerator system

HP_Cryo_3_hcm0029873CryoSpectra deliver the simplest way to bring cryogenic temperatures into a vacuum chamber through their uniquely designed cryorefrigeration systems utilising gold-plated and polished cold heads of 38 or 50 mm diameter with CFF or KF flanges. Now available with base temperatures from 75 Kelvin , these high cooling capacity systems are easily the best way to cryogenically cool laser crystals.

The CryoSpectra K Series of low acoustic noise cryorefrigerators are especially designed for work in the lab. The closed-loop cooling system ensures maintenance-free operation, while the super-compact cold head guarantees an ultra-low vibration (0.5 nm peak to peak – see vibration data here) chilled surface for inside the vacuum chambers of high power laser systems.

For detailed specifications, please contact us.

CryoSpectra brings compact cryogenic cooling to the UK

CryoSpectra is a class-leader in the production of superior very low vibration high-power cryorefrigerators that deliver 90 to 170 Kelvin temperatures into a vacuum chamber. High power laser crystal cooling, to guarantee Carrier Envelope Phase (CEP) stabilisation of femtosecond or shorter pulses, is just one application. Elliot Scientific is now distributing their product range throughout the UK and Ireland.


  • Laser crystal cooling
  • High power laser amplifiers
  • CEP stabilised laser systems
  • Ti:Sapphire multi-millijoule, multi-kHz amplifier systems
  • Quantum Cascade Lasers
  • Cryopumping

With a high cooling capacity from a very small gold-plated cold head, CryoSpectra products are also ideal for use in a broad range of other demanding cryo-applications in industry and science – especially physics, chemistry and biotechnology, and the company can offer customised solutions too.


  • High cooling capacity at cryogenic temperatures
  • Cool-down time 20 minutes
  • Compact cold head is vibration-free
  • Quiet and maintenance-free

Cooling and heating by ‘hi-TEC’ Peltier system from Electron Dynamics

HPE Heat Pump by Electron DynamicsThe Peltier effect can both heat and cool, so an Electron Dynamics‘ HPE pump from Elliot Scientific can offer a fully integrated thermo-electric temperature control system in a convenient package. The HPE comprises fan, heatsink, thermo-electric cooler and thermal block constructed as a complete heat pump assembly. When used in conjunction with one of our programmable ETCS temperature controllers, it can effect precise servo-controlled thermal stabilisation from -100 °C to +200 °C with a stability of 0.001 °C in varying ambient conditions.

Three models are available: 20 Watt Standard, 40 W Intermediate, and 80 W High Output. Please contact us for technical information and pricing.
