About the Author
Kevin Carmichael is Senior Marketing Product Manager for Lake Shore Cryotronics responsible for material characterisation systems and instrumentation. This includes the company’s new line of high-performance, simple-to-use MeasureReady™ I/V sources for engineers and scientists requiring a very precise, low-noise source of current or voltage in the lab.
Andeen-Hagerling has been manufacturing class-leading capacitance and capacitance/loss bridge test equipment for over thirty years. Their equipment is used in laboratories worldwide, in a wide variety of research and industrial applications.
Elliot Scientific is able to offer expert advice on selecting the right Andeen-Hagerling instrument for your project, so please contact us with details of the application and we will be happy to help.
EXFO has expanded the number of plug-in modules for their next-generation test platform, the LTB-8. This compact unit, equipped with an ultra-powerful processor and highly intuitive interface, gives the lab user an optimised instrument to run dedicated test applications simply and efficiently for technologies such as Ethernet, OTN, Fibre Channel, SONET/SDH and more.
The current module range comprises:
- FTBx-1750 Power Meter Module
- FTBx-5245 Optical Spectrum Analyser
- FTBx-88×0 10G Multiservice module
- FTBx-88200 100G Multiservice module
- FTBx-9150 Optical Switch
- FTBx-9160 MEMS Optical Switch
- FTBx-9600 Utility Module
Gamma Scientific [ @gammascientific ] has just introduced two new instruments for display measurements. Both offer colour, intensity and flicker testing of all types of LED, LCD, OLED and Quantum Dot screens.
The GS-1160 is the touchscreen-equipped handheld version, while the GS-1160B is designed for the bench and operates in conjunction with PC-based analysis software. The GS-1160 can also be used as a desktop system as it is supported by the same software.
These spectroradiometers, to give them their proper name, deliver faster results with repeatability superior to filter-based instruments. Additional measurement capabilities include gamma, white balance and uniformity.
Data is output on both via USB, or can also be stored on an SD card in the GS-1160 portable model. The GS-1160B can be programmed for custom testing as it has an Application Programming Interface (API). Commands can be sent via RS-232 or the USB.
For detailed specifications and more information about these or other products Gamma Scientific manufacture, please contact us.
The CRAIC Technologies MP-2™ Microscope Photometer is designed to add photometry and imaging to an optical microscope. With a spectral range from the deep UV to the near infrared, the MP-2™ is better described as a microscope radiometer. It is limited only by the microscope’s optics.
The CRAIC MP-2™ microphotometer enables collection of transmission, reflectance or even fluorescence and luminescence photometric data of microscopic samples.
The MP-2’s solid state detectors have dynamic ranges and sensitivities greater than PMTs or imaging systems and with complete software control, either broad- or narrow-band, photometric intensity measurements can be made. Typical applications include:
- Cytophotometry & immunohistochemistry
- Cytofluorimetry & immunofluorescence
- Intracellular calcium measurements
- Gemology & mineralogy
- Thickness measurements
- Ion & pH measurements
- DNA analysis
- Photoreceptor analysis
Please contact us for more details.
EXFO has released their next-generation modular test system in the form of the LTB-8 Rackmount Platform (with video), a versatile solution that addresses the many testing requirements found within today’s data networks.
The LTB-8’s small format, ultra-powerful processor and highly intuitive interface gives the lab user an optimised instrument to run dedicated test applications simply and efficiently for technologies such as Ethernet, OTN, Fibre Channel, SONET/SDH and more.
