Automated Vitrinite Reflectance Measurements with GeoImage Autofocus Solutions

CRAIC Technologies, a leading manufacturer of scientific instruments for UV-VIS-NIR microscopy and microspectroscopy, has released autofocus capabilities and automated data collection upgrades for their GeoImage Microphotometry solution for Vitrinite Reflectance.

Although the use of fossil fuels is under constant evaluation due to its environmental effects, Coal Petrology is still an important field due to the diverse domestic and industrial applications of coal, from the manufacture of steel to combustion for generating electricity. Vitrinite Reflectance is one of the key techniques in analyzing coal samples as it is used to determine the grade or rank of the coal and coke as standardized by many different national and international agencies, including ISO and ASTM. While the process is simple in theory, the actual collection of Vitrinite Reflectance data for characterizing coal and other petrographic samples can be an arduous and user intensive process since hundreds of samples need to be measured per sample in order to achieve the statistical data set required for trustworthy conclusions.

The GeoImage system helps resolve these issues by using a 2-dimensional imaging detector to collect significantly more data than previous generations of instruments, allowing the petrographer to collect data with an intuitive point and click method. With a motorized microscope and CRAIC's autofocus software package, the GeoImage package can be setup to collect data for the whole pellet surface for later analysis by the petrographer, saving countless hours of time that was previously spent manually collecting all of the data. For samples with small grains of vitrinite or cases requiring extra care, this update also features a semi-automated mode where the instrument automatically moves to the next point and focuses on the pellet for the analyst to collect data points with one mouse-click.

Ultra-efficient ns and ps solid state lasers

FROM Photonics Industries

Ultra-efficient ns and ps solid state lasers
Ultra-efficient ns and ps solid state lasers from Photonics Industries.

Photonics Industries, the pioneer of intracavity solid-state harmonic lasers, has introduced its new DX Series, the highest wall plug efficiency nanosecond (ns) laser:

  • 17% for green wavelengths
  • 10% for UV wavelengths

Concurrently, Photonics Industries has introduced its new RX Series, the Highest Pulse Energy pico second (ps) laser in the market ~1mJ in IR, over 400uJ in Green and ~200uJ in UV:

  • High power (up to 100W in IR)
  • Short pulse (10ps)
  • High repetition rates (up to 8MHz)
  • The most compact rugged All-in-one ps laser
  • The highest efficiency ps laser with the lowest power consumption

Such high pulse energies allow for process efficiency optimization by spatial scaling as the beam can be split numerous times to simultaneously feed multiple work stations yielding the lowest Cost of Ownership. Combined with increases in wall plug efficiencies, industrial micromachining customers can manufacture their products at a much quicker, more efficient rate, expediting their manufacturing processes thus reducing the cost and increasing availability of next gen technologies to a greater cross section of the world’s population.
