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.

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.

Photonex 2013We 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 StagesMiniature 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.
