LaVision introduces a series of new cameras for PIV applications

PIV cameras

LaVision's well-proven very sensitive Imager sCMOS camera now comes with a modern and ultra-fast Camera Link HS interface allowing high data throughput. The connection from camera head to frame grabber via fiber optical link enables safe data transfer over long distances.

For moderate velocity ranges the Imager MX 2M and MX 5M USB3 cameras are best suited. The cameras offer frame rates around 100 Hz, in combination with a 50 Hz or 100 Hz PIV laser they are ideal for applications in water or other fluids. All cameras are compact and light weight and have an in-built double shutter mode for short interframe times for a wide range of PIV flow field applications. The new Imager SX 6M and SX 9M cameras are price-efficient, low noise cameras and provide a modern USB3 Vision interface. The cameras combine high spatial resolution for larger scale PIV application with high frame rates.

Light Conversion Flint Femtosecond Yb Oscillators


The Light Conversion FLINT oscillator is based on Yb:KGW crystal end-pumping by high brightness laser diode module. Generation of femtosecond pulses is provided by Kerr lens mode-locking, once started, modelocking remains stable over a long period of time and is immune to minor mechanical impact. The oscillator can be equipped with external electrooptical Pulse Picker and appropriate timing electronics allowing selection of a single pulse at repetition rates up to 100 kHz. Piezo-actuator can be implemented in customized oscillators in order to control the cavity length. FLINT oscillator can also be equipped with Carrier Envelope Phase (CEP) stabilization system.

Zolix release OmniFluo-900 Steady-State & Time-Resolved Fluorescence Spectrometer


Zolix OmniFluo Fluorescence Systems adopt modular design for application specific configurations.

Zolix offers a range of accessories for different applications, allowing the OmniFluo system to be configured for PL, Raman, transmission, reflection, absorption and detector calibration measurement. The possible configurations are endless.

The Zolix OmniFluo Fluorescence Systems employ the high performance Omni-λ monochromator/spectrograph, high sensitivity single or multi-channel detector, and single photon counting/lock-in amplifier technique. The standard for sensitivity is the signal-to-noise ratio calculated from a water Raman spectrum. Using this standardized test, our signal-to-noise ratio is 12000:1.

Ocean Optics: Ever Wonder What Goes on Inside a Spectrometer?

It’s a good question, and the complete answer can escape even the most seasoned researcher. The photons used in spectroscopy encounter many components and undergo a variety of processes before registering as a spectrum. What exactly happens to these photons once they enter the optical bench? Let’s look at their journey inside a spectrometer.

Learn more about the spectrometer featured in this animation, the Ocean Optics QE Pro High Performance Spectrometer.
