Laser users love novel flip filter design that modifies eye protection
NoIR LaserShields are now shipping the CE-certified Frame 40 spectacle. With its novel flip mechanism, which allows for a secondary filter to be brought into play in certain applications, users can benefit in situations where a modification of the passband of the fixed filter is required.
In this example, the fixed filter is FG1 glass for IR sources above 900 nm, and the secondary filter is the AXX which blocks UV and IR in between 700 and 900 nm.

More eye protection from lasers: NoIR LaserShields expands range in UK
With the news of multiple high-profile incidents involving laser pens being pointed at passenger aircraft; Elliot Scientific welcomes the recent addition of four more CE-certified laser filters and several new stylish frames to our existing NoIR LaserShields® range. The filters are:
AG4 – blocks UV and 532 nm green light sources
YG5 – blocks IR lasers operating around 1064 nm
RT1 & RT2 – attenuate UV, 532 nm green and near-IR from about 800 to 1064 nm, making them ideal for visual alignment applications or laser pointer protection
Eyes can be permanently damaged by direct or reflected exposure to lasers, high-power LEDs and plasmas – arc welding for example.
NoIR safety eyewear is designed to absorb specific light energies, and must be selected by considering source wavelength(s) and peak irradiance, required optical density (OD), visual light transmittance, field of view, effects on natural colour rendition and frame comfort.
A number of frame styles are now also available in white, while an extra small model has been introduced for petite faces, adolescents and pre-teens. This will allow paediatric, medical and dental services involving laser treatments to offer better eye protection for children.
Your eyesight is important! Please contact us if you work with, or might be affected by, lasers or any other intense light source.
Retinal injury occurs from exposure to visible, such as the possible Blue Light Hazard effect, or near IR energy (400-1400 nm), while corneal or lens damage results from UV (190-400 nm) and IR (1400-11000 nm) exposure.
Countdown to Photonex 2014 – only 4 weeks to go!
Next month sees the opening of Photonex 2014 – the showcase light and imaging exhibition and conference. Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena is once again the venue, and Elliot Scientific will be there on Stand B10.
We will be displaying the Mad City Labs nanopositioning range, our own portfolio of Elliot|Martock micropositioning systems and accessories, and other piezo-driven systems from mechOnics.
Lasers from IPG Photonics, Integrated Optics, and FEMTOLASERS will be on show, along with Honeywell Sperian and NoIR Laser protective eyewear. In addition, the latest version of the popular laser-driven plasma light source from Energetiq will be demonstrated alongside Spatial Light Modulators and diffractive optics from Holoeye.
We look forward to welcoming you to our stand on October 15th or 16th, where you will also discover an exciting new range of products we are introducing.
For information about the Show, visit the Photonex website.
The “World’s Most Accurate” Capacitance Bridges are from Andeen-Hagerling
Andeen-Hagerling manufacture the world’s most accurate capacitance bridges and standards, and their AH 2700 models offer unparalleled stability, resolution, linearity and accuracy in a multi-frequency capacitance/loss bridges.
The numerous state-of-the-art features of the AH2700 make it an exceptionally user-friendly instrument, with unmatched precision that enables it to open up new applications in calibration, manufacturing and scientific research.
The AH2700 is the culmination of over 40 years of Andeen-Hagerling experience in bridge design and manufacture. The unique ratio transformer and the temperature-controlled, fused-silica capacitance standard make the instrument a true bridge for measuring highly accurate capacitance/loss figures which are independent of the exact test frequency (50 Hz – 20 kHz) and immune to mechanical shock.

Photonex UK and InterOpto Japan open this week: Elliot Scientific attending both
Wednesday sees the opening of the 22nd Photonex, the UK’s showcase light and imaging exhibition and conference. Coventry City’s Ricoh Arena is once again the venue for the show and Elliot Scientific will be there on Stand B10.
We will be demonstrating our Elliot|Martock range of precision micropositioning stages, fibre launch, and waveguide alignment systems, plus the piezo-driven nanopositioning systems of Mad City Labs . Experience the amazing super-fine and super-smooth 254 TPI precision screw adjusters of Kozak Micro, and the controlability of the mechOnics‘ piezo inertial drives.
The ground-breaking laser-driven plasma light source from Energetiq is present, while lasers from IPG Photonics and Femtolasers will be shown alongside our ranges of protective laser eyewear. The popular Spatial Light Modulator range from Holoeye, is also being put through its paces .
On the same day, InterOpto, a major Far East photonics exhibition, opens. It is taking place in Yokohama, Japan and Elliot Scientific will be there, joining our Japanese distributor Autex in Booth I-057 to demonstrate our Flexure Stages, Miniature Slides and a full working Optical Tweezers System.
We look forward to welcoming you to our stands from October 16th to demonstrate these products and more.
For information about these shows, visit the Photonex and InterOpto websites.
NoIR LaserShields® introduced by Elliot Scientific
Elliot Scientific’s existing laser safety portfolio is now complemented by our introduction of the NoIR LaserShields® eyewear product range.
NoIR LaserShields®, who have been manufacturing laser safety eyewear for multiple applications since 1996 following its creation by parent company NoIR Medical Technologies, offer a comprehensive group of filters for protection against specific or combined laser wavelengths, a broad choice of frames to suit your face and pocket, and additional products for patient/client protection and pilots.
More details on the NoIR LaserShields® Elliot Scientific offers can be found within the comprehensive product pages that show the filter groups, frame styles, and extras, along with datasheets and CE Certificates.
If you have a requirement for laser eye protection, do contact us for advice on choosing the right eyewear as we always recommend you consult your laser safety officer, appropriate laser safety standards, and/or laser system documentation to ensure correct choice of eyewear and safe laser use.
Remember, laser safety eyewear only offers protection against incidental exposure to specified beam energies so incorrect choice and use may lead to serious personal injury or blindness.
