Elliot|Martock waveguide holders now with ‘in copper’ option

Elliot|Martock waveguide/device holders are now available manufactured from copper as a special order at additional cost. Any of the following MDE74x range can be supplied as such for applications requiring a heatsink capability.

  • MDE741 – Basic, plain mount for tape or adhesive clamping
  • MDE742 – Vacuum clamping
  • MDE743 – Mechanical clamping

The new holders are mainly for use with Elliot Gold™ series flexure stages and the central workstations MDE881 and MDE883, but can also be mounted on the MDE147, MDE148 and MDE149 brackets. The MDE744, MDE745, and MDE746 models are special versions of the MDE741 to MDE743 models for use with the MDE717 and MDE718 fibre rotators.

New DAli 3: Latest in automated alignment for fibre optics and waveguides

E2300SQ500The Elliot Scientific DAli 3 is the latest version of our popular automated photonic device alignment system for the following applications:

•  Fibre-to-laser diode alignment
•  Fibre-to-waveguide alignment
•  Fibre-to-fibre coupling
•  Fibre array-to-device alignment
•  Compensation for epoxy drift during pigtailing
•  Compensation for drift during long-term characterisation
•  Simultaneous alignment of input & output fibers (or arrays) to waveguide device

A typical DAli 3 system now consists of our new 3-channel E1100 piezo controller, the USB-equipped DAli 3 interface, and a PC or laptop for driving the easy to use software. Although designed to complement the piezo-driven versions of the Elliot Gold™ Series range of flexure stages, it is also suited to other piezo devices working on 0 to 150 volts.

DAli 3 incorporates the latest in electronics and uses complex software algorithms to quickly deliver precision automated alignment. It does this by locating and optimising an optical feedback signal derived from the components being aligned. It then adjusts their relative position to optimise the signal and therefore their accurate alignment.

The software and hardware package includes many features to enhance use, while also providing the necessary flexibility to allow it to be incorporated into a wide range of photonic alignment tasks for development, test and production applications.


New THz-frequency contact probing for cryogenic applications from Lake Shore

Lake Shore have released details of their new THz-frequency contact probes. Compatible with Lake Shore’s CPX, CPX-VF, CRX-4K, and CRX-VF cryogenic probe station systems, the THz arm offers:

  • Precise on-wafer contact THz probing of millimetre wave devicesTHzProbeArm_4
  • New measurement possibilities for next-generation electronics
  • THz probes can be combined with standard DC/RF/microwave probe arms
  • Features a low-loss THz waveguide
  • Supports vector network analysers (VNAs) with suitable frequency extenders
  • Enables calibrated S-parameter and other hf electrical measurements at cryogenic temperatures and in magnetic fields

Signal deterioration at frequencies above 75 GHz has limited high-frequency contact measurement of electronic devices at room temperature, let alone cryogenic ones. Now Lake Shore’s breakthrough technology of a specially developed low-loss THz-frequency waveguide delivers excellent signal integrity over longer distances, at lower temperatures, and with superior arm mobility. All without interefering with the other probes in the system.

New Opto-Mechanics Catalogue for 2013

A new Elliot Scientific Opto-Mechanics Catalogue has been released for 2013. With more than 450 pages, the comprehensive 14Mb PDF is downloadable from links on the Elliot Scientific website or can be read online at Issuu. The catalogue includes details and drawings of all our Mounts, Flexures, Stages, and Slides,  plus information on accessories, hardware for optical tables, custom designs and specialist systems.

Also released are four updated ‘mini-catalogues’ extracted from the main publication that detail the XYZ Flexure Stages, Miniature Positioners, Fibre Launch Systems and Lab Essentials ranges. These can also be downloaded from their relevant pages by clicking on the links above, or from various pages dotted around our website or read online at Issuu along with our other publications.

And if you missed any of our e-newsletters last year, we have compiled them into a handy annual (with built-in web links) that you can also download or read online at Issuu.

Alternatively, contact us and we can email you the PDF of choice.
