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
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.
AKELA Laser Corp. are now offering single and multi-channel laser diode modules in a variety of wavelengths from 635 to 1950 nm. These new modules offer integrated cooling and drive electronics for plug-and-play use, and can be configured using either a USB port or by external voltages.
Specifically designed for 100 micron, 0.22NA fibres and providing pulsed or CW up to 2 Watts per channel, they offer several different emergency shut-off options and are eminently suitable for both R&D and OEM applications.
Higher power levels will shortly become available as well as modules designed for the medical market with built-in accessories such as photodetectors, aiming beams, blast shields, and fibre sensors.
The laser modules are available in the following configurations: single channel; multi-channel with independently addressable outputs; and multiple outputs controlled by a single driver.
Please contact us for further information.
AKELA Laser Corporation has released single and multi-channel laser diode modules in wavelengths from 635 to 1950 nm, part of a phased introduction of a new range for 2013.
The laser diode modules, designed for 0.22 na 100, 200 and 400 micron fibres – or free space use – and providing up to 25 Watts CW power, are ideal for research and development.
Equipped with integrated cooling and drive electronics for plug-and-play use, the modules are available in the following configurations: single channel; multi-channel with independently addressable outputs; and multiple outputs controlled by a single driver.
This new unit from AKELA is the most versatile and configurable diode laser module on the market today. With its individually addressable emitters, the module can operate at up to five wavelengths from one fibre, making it convenient for use in R&D settings. It fits standard high-power thermoelectric systems, making integration easier, and meets stringent industrial and medical requirements.
Further development of these new modules will offer increasingly higher power levels as well as built-in accessories such as photodetectors, aiming beams, blast shields, and fibre sensors.
Cyto-Lite™ is an exciting new laser illumination source, from Mad City Labs for life science and other researchers, that outputs three colours through a single fibre. The key wavelengths are:
- 405 nm
- 532 nm
- 640 nm
The characteristics of each laser line can be controlled independently via the Cyto-Lite™ software’s streamlined user interface, making it a very flexible instrument for use in bioscience facilities and academic research laboratories.
As laser attacks on aircraft are doubling each year worldwide, with helicopter and civilian pilots at a higher risk, Elliot Scientific is introducing Sperian’s Laser–Gard® aviator eyewear to offer more protection than high-end designer sunglasses selling at the same price point.
Available in a choice of truly affordable frame styles, featuring multiple adjustments for comfort, the patented lenses are available in two versions to ensure that pilots and law enforcement personnel are protected around the clock:
- Soothing bronze coloured sunglass tint for the day
- Unique salmon coloured lens that provides excellent night time vision
Laser-Gard® combines laser protection with traffic signal colour-recognition and unparalleled comfort, making it possible for anyone exposed to these lasers to do their job safely and effectively.
