CryoSpectra lowers the temperature with new K90 cryorefrigerator system

HP_Cryo_3_hcm0029873CryoSpectra deliver the simplest way to bring cryogenic temperatures into a vacuum chamber through their uniquely designed cryorefrigeration systems utilising gold-plated and polished cold heads of 38 or 50 mm diameter with CFF or KF flanges. Now available with base temperatures from 75 Kelvin , these high cooling capacity systems are easily the best way to cryogenically cool laser crystals.

The CryoSpectra K Series of low acoustic noise cryorefrigerators are especially designed for work in the lab. The closed-loop cooling system ensures maintenance-free operation, while the super-compact cold head guarantees an ultra-low vibration (0.5 nm peak to peak – see vibration data here) chilled surface for inside the vacuum chambers of high power laser systems.

Aviator’s Night Vision Imaging System (ANVIS) Test Equipment? Ask Elliot Scientific

NVIS_HiRes_SQElliot Scientific is now offering the GS-1290-NVIS, an advanced high-speed spectroradiometer from Gamma Scientific, that is specifically configured for ANVIS testing of cockpit displays and lighting.

Combining the leading-edge sensitivity of a backside-thinned CCD detector with Gamma Scientific’s industry-renowned RadOMA opto-electrical platform, the GS-1290-NVIS exceeds all requirements outlined in MIL-L-85762A and MIL-STD-3009 for the characterisation of night vision compatible interface lighting in aircraft.

The GS-1290-NVIS represents the state-of-the-art in speed and accuracy in a commercially available spectroradiometer. Measurements that required a few minutes in the past with scanning grating spectroradiometer systems can now be performed in a matter of seconds.

New Optical Tweezer Brochure Published

A fully revised, expanded, and updated Elliot Scientific Optical Tweezer brochure has been published. This new catalogue covers all the Optical Tweezer equipment and systems for laser trapping Elliot Scientific offers. It includes details on:

  • Component-based “open architecture” optical tweezers
  • Self-contained portable, desktop single beam optical tweezer workstations
  • Single spot optical tweezer for integration with commercial microscopes
  • Multiple spot optical tweezer under full computer control integrated with commercial microscopes
  • Force Measurement accessory for single trap stiffness using a Quadrant Photodetector (QPD)
  • Force Measurement accessory for multiple trap stiffness, multiple particle tracking using Camera Particle Tracking (CPT)

The brochure will be available at all of the events Elliot Scientific will be attending in 2012. Alternatively, you can contact us for further information and a printed copy, download the PDF version, or read it online via our Issuu channel.


CPT Equipped Tweezer Passes Final Tests

 

Elliot Scientific E4500 CPT Tweezer System under test

Elliot Scientific E4500 CPT Tweezer System Under Test: Richard Bowman, from the University of Glasgow, and Elliot Scientific's Tweezer Product Manager Colin Freedland put the E4500 CPT Optical Trapping System through its paces.

The Elliot Scientific E4500 Camera Particle Tracking (CPT) Laser Tweezer demonstrator has passed its final testing phase and will be shown at the forthcoming Biophysical 55 exhibition and confrence in Baltimore on March 7th.

Optical trapping has found many applications in the Sciences. The miniscule forces that light exerts on micron-size particles have empowered scientists, particularly those in biomedicine, enabling them to perform important studies on single molecules, cells and colloids without inflicting damage.

CPT technology enables the collection of data from multiple particles at a higher rate. This allows for:

  • Convenient trap calibration by thermal analysis
  • Improved trap stiffness measurements
  • Multiple particle tracking within microfluidic channels
  • Viscosity measurements at several points simultaneously

In December 2010, following selection by the University of Glasgow, Elliot Scientific was the first company to benefit from the University’s Easy Access IP initiative, a scheme designed to freely transfer some of the University’s technical, scientific and medical intellectual property to research and industry for the benefit of all.
