Laser Focus World features Siskiyou IXF mounts on cover for Los Alamos/UNM story

The July issue of Laser Focus World magazine uses a photo of a YLF:Yb crystal mounted between two top-adjustable Siskiyou IXF monolithic tip/tilt flexure mounts to illustrate their feature story on an all-solid-state optical cryocooler developed by the Los Alamos National Laboratory and the University of New Mexico.

Solid-state optical refrigeration uses anti-Stokes fluorescence to cool macroscopic objects to cryogenic temperatures without the annoying vibrations typically introduced by mechanical cryocooling systems.

The crystal was excited by a low power linearly-polarised continuous-wave fibre laser by IPG Photonics, while the temperature was monitored with a calibrated DT-670-SD silicon diode from Lake Shore Cryotronics.

Coupling the laser light to the crystal was achieved by using an astigmatic Herriott cell, with the optics held in vacuum compatible Siskiyou IXF flexure mounts…  known for their excellent mechanical and thermal properties.

Researchers in the UK or Ireland wishing to replicate this experiment can contact us for research lasers from IPG Photonics, sensors and instrumentation from Lake Shore Cryotronics, and the full range of mounts and stages from Siskiyou. Elliot Scientific can also be approached to supply optics and custom machined parts as well.

The full paper describing the experiment can be read here on nature.com.

On Thursday, Photonex Scotland opens in Edinburgh

Photonex Scotland opens in Edinburgh on Thursday, bringing together the UK’s top photonics technology suppliers, leading researchers and invited speakers for a very special one-day event on June 14th at the University of Edinburgh’s South Hall complex.

Elliot Scientific will be among the 25 companies dedicated to optics, biophotonics and imaging technology – allowing you to view the latest photonics solutions, optical components, instruments and systems, as well as a conference and tutorials.

Photonics is an enabling technology, so you can only really find out how a company can help you in your work by face-to-face contact. Elliot Scientific’s Solution Science is more than just a slogan, it’s our approach to providing the tools and equipment you need to get the results you want.

Come and talk to us about your project.


New IPG ultrafast fibre lasers for research now available through Elliot Scientific

IPG Photonics has developed a range of green, infrared, and mid-IR high speed fibre and fiber-to-bulk hybrid lasers operating in the pico and femtosecond regimes, making them ideal for scientific and medical research.

Ultrashort pulse durations between 10-11 and 10-13 seconds are generated by a master oscillator/ fibre power amplifier (MOFPA) architecture, and are particularly well suited for generating pulse energies from several microjoules to  about 1 mJ with repetition rates from 10 kHz to 3 MHz.

Elliot Scientific offers these pulsed lasers at various wavelengths, from UV to Mid-IR, allowing researchers to perform many different experiments. Material process engineering , such as flat panel displays; thin films; and semiconductor processing, can also benefit.

Features

  • Wide selection of wavelengths
  • Pulse energy is independent of PRR
  • Average power from 1 to 100 W
  • Pulse energy is independent of average power
  • PRR from 10 kHz to 3 MHz
  • Constant beam mode quality
  • Excellent pointing stability
  • Compact and efficient
