Ekspla PGX01 series: High energy, narrow linewidth picosecond optical parametric generators (OPGs)

Ekspla PGX01

Ekspla PGX01 series picosecond optical parametric generators (OPGs) feature high pulse energy and narrow linewidth. PGX01 series OPGs are an excellent choice for researchers who need picosecond tunable source from UV to mid IR. Due to the unique tunability range these devices are a very attractive and cost-efficient alternative to other tunable laser radiation sources.  


Multi-Function Supercontinuum Fibre Laser SC-Pro from YSL Photonics

The SC-Pro from YSL Photonics is a supercontinuum laser with tunable MHz-range repetition rate and adjustable power. The spectrum covers the range from 400nm to 2400nm. It’s especially suitable for fluorescence lifetime imaging, nanophotonics, infrared spectroscopy and other fields when working at the condition of 25MHz 5W. When working at 1-5MHz, it offers pulse energies of more than a micro-joule, which is ideal for fluorescence spectroscopy, or STED imaging fields.

With its unique features, SC-Pro makes it possible to generate a supercontinuum source with low repetition rate, microjoule pulse energy and high repetition rate,100 nJ pulse energy.

Abet Announces new line of SunLite Solar Simulators

The recently introduced line of SunLite Solar Simulators from Abet technologies set a new standard for 50 x 50 mm field solar simulators using only a 100 watt Xenon arc lamp. The 11002 SunLite Solar Simulator utilizes and optimized optical system to deliver more than one AM1.5G sun irradiance over a 50 x 50 mm area.

The Sunlight Solar Simulator offers a flexible design that can be adapted to many particular needs. The standard configuration is a downward output system with an AM1.5G filter included. The SunLite is easily converted to a horizontal or up pointing beam configuration using only a screw driver. The standard system is delivered with one 100 watt Xenon arc lamp, an AM1.5G air mass filter,  adjustable height stand, and HEPA filtered cooling air. The standard optics supplied with the SunLite are N-BK7 to minimize harmful ultraviolet radiation. For solar cells with an extended range fused silica optics are available.

Piezoelectrical shaker for vibration excitation with frequencies up to 100 kHz from piezosystem jena

piezosystems Jena

The use of piezo shakers for vibration excitation has many advantages over conventional methods. Piezo shakers have a higher force potential as a result of their stiffness and their ability to operate at exceedingly higher frequencies. Due to their high power density they can be produced in compact sizes. These small elements can be used for modal analysis of mechanical structures. Massive piezo shakers with a seismic mass can modulate forces up to double-digit Kilonewtons.

Piezo shakers from piezosystems Jena are used in the following applications:

Sensors Unlimited 320M SWIR Camera reveals second painting by Picasso

Sensors Inc

Scientists and art experts have found a hidden painting beneath one of Pablo Picasso's first masterpieces, "The Blue Room," using advances in infrared imagery to reveal a bow-tied man with his face resting on his hand. Now the question that conservators at The Phillips Collection in Washington hope to answer is simply: Who is he?

It's a mystery that's fueling new research about the 1901 painting created early in Picasso's career while he was working in Paris at the start of his distinctive blue period of melancholy subjects.

Curators and conservators revealed their findings for the first time to The Associated Press last week. Over the past five years, experts from The Phillips Collection, National Gallery of Art, Cornell University and Delaware's Winterthur Museum have developed a clearer image of the mystery picture under the surface. It's a portrait of an unknown man painted in a vertical composition by one of the 20th century's great artists.
