Delivery of First TOPTICA Guide Star Laser Accepted by ESO

Toptica Laser GuideStar

TOPTICA’s Laser Development Successfully Completed as Pathfinder for Future Extremely Large Telescopes (ELTs)

March 28, 2014: Over the course of the last three years, TOPTICA has developed a new generation of sodium guide star lasers to be deployed at ESO’s Adaptive Optics Facility at the Very Large Telescope (VLT) in Paranal, Chile. Until August 2014, TOPTICA will complete the delivery of four such lasers plus one spare unit to the European Southern Observatory (ESO), hoping for first light on the sky in Paranal in early 2015.

The newly developed laser systems consist of a narrow band and tun-able diode laser with 50 mW output power at 1178 nm, a Raman Fiber Amplifier stage developed by MPB Communications of Canada and a subsequent resonant frequency doubling stage. The output frequency is actively locked to a high resolution precision wavelength meter (HighFi-nesse GmbH). The work was performed under a multi-year ESO devel-opment contract using the ESO EFRA license for the amplifier step. 


HORIBA Scientific Launches New UVISEL 2 VUV

Horiba Scientific UVISEL 2 VUV

Versatile Spectroscopic Ellipsometer Delivers Fastest Thin Film Measurements over Largest Wavelength Range, from 147 to 2100 nm

HORIBA Scientific, a leader in spectroscopic ellipsometry, is pleased to announce the launch of the UVISEL 2 VUV, a new generation of phase modulation spectroscopic ellipsometer for VUV measurements. UVISEL 2 VUV is the only spectroscopic ellipsometer on the market designed to deliver the fastest thin film measurements over the largest wavelength range, from 147 to 2100 nm.

The UVISEL 2 VUV is “a hybrid ellipsometer”, capable of operating in 2 modes: under nitrogen or primary vacuum. Its mechanical design is optimized for low nitrogen consumption down to 6L/min, and allows fast sample loading, which takes less than two minutes. The readily accessible chamber in front makes sample loading very convenient.


PicoQuant: Integrating sphere add-on for FluoTime 300


Precise quantum yield measurements can be routinely performed in a few minutes even by untrained users

PicoQuant has released an integrating sphere add-on for the FluoTime 300 spectrometer. It has been thoroughly designed and calibrated and is able to reproduce published literature data of selected quantum yield standards such as Rhodamin 6G, Coumarin 153, and Ru(bpy)3.The complete workflow for quantum yield measurements is included in the EasyTau software as a dedicated quantum yield wizard. Therefore, precise quantum yield measurements can be routinely performed in a few minutes even for untrained users.

Lumina Power Inc: LDD Series High Power Laser Diode Drivers

Lumina Power Inc LDD High Power Laser Diode Drivers

The Lumina Power Inc LDD series is a new family of OEM laser diode drivers designed for the emerging high power laser diode industry. The LDD series is ideal for high power applications where economy is important and performance cannot be compromised. Compact size is possible due to the low-loss Zero Voltage Switching inverter and incorporation of planar magnetics. The LDD is virtually wire free.

Power factor is greater than 0.99 and conducted emissions meet stringent European regulations. No additional line filters required to meet EN 55011 emission requirements. The LDD family has been designed with the knowledge that a high power laser diode is an expensive device. Rise and fall times are strictly controlled to reduce high voltage transients which could damage the laser diode.
