C-WAVE tunable laser source

FROM HUBNER

Posted: 16 March 2017

C-WAVE tunable laser
The C-WAVE is a tunable laser light source for continuous wave emission in the visible and near-infrared wavelength range.

Warsash Scientific is pleased to announce the C-WAVE from HÜBNER Photonics, a leading manufacturer of laser, terahertz and radar system solutions. The C-WAVE is a tunable laser light source for continuous wave emission in the visible and near-infrared wavelength range. Its technology is based on optical parametric oscillation (OPO) and is fully computer controlled. It allows you to tune from blue (450 – 525nm) to red (540 – 650nm) and into the near-infrared (900 – 1300nm) without any change of dyes or optical components.

In addition, the use of the AbsoluteLambda software module offers the opportunity for an automated selection of wavelength with high accuracy (set point ±1MHz) and a drift-free wavelength stabilisation (±1MHz) over 12 hours. Control and fine tuning are achieved using intra-cavity elements and piezo-tuning of the cavity length.

Badge

The Polytec MSA-050 is a table-top vibrometer system designed for full-field vibration analysis on small components with a bandwidth of up to 2 MHz and a velocity range of 10 m/s.

A digital single-point vibrometer constitutes the core of the system, providing real-time vibration data from any point on the sample with sub-picometre resolution. Full-field vibration data is acquired by traversing the sample on the integrated 50 mm x 50 mm XY-stage with software control. The non-contact principle of operation leaves samples completely undisturbed, producing accurate data even when measuring very small and delicate objects. The MSA-050 helps identify resonance frequencies, vibration amplitudes and operational deflection shapes of microstructures, MEMS and precision mechanics.

Selecting CC or CP Mode for Laser Diodes

FROM Wavelength Electronics

Posted: 26 November 2013

Badge

The decision to operate in CC or CP mode depends on the application.

In some cases, constant wavelength is critical, but having a wavelength meter provide feedback is not practical. Often, the laser diode is run in Constant Current mode and a thermoelectric is used to keep the die at a constant temperature. The temperature is scanned to achieve the correct wavelength then held constant.

Kinetic Microspectroscopy

IMAGE COURTESY OF CRAIC TECHNOLOGIES

And Badge

Warsash Scientific is proud to announce the addition of kinetic spectroscopy capabilities to the 20/20 Perfect Vision™ UV-visible-NIR microspectrophotometer.

With the kinetic spectroscopy package, this system is able to monitor the full range spectra of a microscopic sample area over time and plot the results. Analysis of samples can be done by absorbance, reflectance and even optical emission from the deep UV to far into the near infrared spectral regions. Applications are numerous and include biological time resolved analysis to measuring the degradation of LED's over time, chemical reactions on metallic films and much more. The ability to analyse the time resolved spectra of microscopic sample areas with multiple spectroscopic techniques, makes the kinetic package for the 20/20 Perfect Vision™ the cutting-edge micro-analysis tool for any laboratory or manufacturing facility.
