Next week, we are in Oxford for Quantum UK 2015

ELLblurred2Quantum UK 2015 will be the first in a series of annual meetings of the UK Quantum Technology Hub Network that was established by the UK government to accelerate the transition of quantum technologies from research to industry.

Elliot Scientific will be attending this meeting, that takes place at St John’s College, Oxford, from the 28th to the 30th of September. We will be exhibiting a wide variety of our systems, solutions, technologies, and products – both home-grown and from the companies we represent based in the USA, Asia and Europe.

The four Quantum Technology Hubs led by the universities of Oxford, York, Glasgow and Birmingham. They are focussed on:

  • Quantum computing
  • Quantum secure communications
  • Quantum-enhanced imaging
  • Quantum-enabled sensing

The conference will discuss the progress, strategy and technical challenges for all these sectors, and will bring together industry, academics, and government with the aim of stimulating new projects and standardising more mature technologies. Contact us for more information.

CRAIC Technologies 308 FPD™ aids the OLED Industry

308PV Spectrophotmeter

308PV Spectrophotmeter

Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) – the next generation of displays and light sources – have an emissive electroluminescent layer that consists of organic molecules in a supporting matrix. For full colour, high resolution displays, this layer is formed into millions of microscopic pixels in ordered rows and columns.

The biggest advantages of the OLED devices, unlike the traditional Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD), is that the pixels combine both the light source and the colour source making them lighter, thinner and more energy efficient. However, the consistency of the intensity and the colour of the optical emission across the device is critical, so this is where instruments such as the CRAIC’s 308 FPD™ are used.

The 308 FPD™ spectrophotometer is designed to measure and compare the spectral output, intensity and colour consistency of each microscopic pixel in milliseconds, thereby quickly creating spectral maps for a whole device and ensuring quality control is maintained.

CRAIC Technologies is a global technology leader focused on innovations for microscopy and microspectroscopy in the ultraviolet, visible and near-infrared regions. Their 308 FPD™ spectrophotometer is designed to be added to the open photoport of a microscope or probe station and is one of a number of their spectrophotometer instruments available through Elliot Scientific for customers in the UK and Ireland.

New hybrid low temperature system from Janis Research

Janis Research Company has developed a new hybrid low temperature system. The versatile model 2K-VTI variable temperature cryogen-free (dry) system has been combined with a wet (LHe cooled) 9T/4T vector magnet to provide a system that offers low temperature and high magnetic field measurements.

The 2K-VTI can be integrated with either wet or dry magnets, and can be configured for sample in vacuum, sample in ultra high vacuum (UHV), sample in exchange gas or even sample in liquid.

The 2K-VTI cryostat can be operated in several different modes, allowing the user to optimise the cooling method for the particular sample and experimental requirement.
