Thorlabs: Temperature-Controlled Mini-Series Breadboard

Mini Temperature Controlled Breadboards

  • Compact Size: 5.00" x 4.00" x 2.46" (127.0 mm x 101.6 mm x 62.5 mm)
  • Double-Density 1/4"-20 (M6) and 8-32 (M4) Tapped Hole Pattern
  • Integrated TEC Element, Thermistor, Centrifugal Fan, and Heat Sink
  • Temperature Setting Range: 15 - 45 °C (Using Front Panel) or 5 - 45 °C (Using Software GUI)
  • Can be Used with  External Temperature Probe
  • Region-Specific Power Cord Included

The Thorlabs PTC1(/M) Temperature-Controlled Breadboard uses thermoelectric elements and active-air cooling to maintain a temperature selected by the user. The unit includes a TEC, controller, thermistor, centrifugal fan, and heat sink for thermal management within a compact 5.00" x 4.00" x 2.46" housing. The internal TEC element features bi-polar operation, meaning it can be used to heat or cool components on the surface. It can handle a maximum heat load of 18 W when the breadboard is set to the ambient temperature.

Becker and Hickl: DCS-120 MACRO FLIM system detects tumors in mice

dcs macro photo

The Becker and Hickl  DCS-120 MACRO detects tumors in mice via FLIM of endogenous NAD(P)H. NAD(P)H exists in a bound and a free form. The free-to-bound ratio changes with the metabolic state. Since bound and free NAD(P)H have different fluorescence lifetimes a shift in the metabolic state results in a change in the decay profile. A shift to glycolysis yields a larger amplitude of the fast decay component and a shorter mean lifetime, a shift to oxydative a smaller amplitude of the fast component and a longer mean lifetime. To detect NAD(P)H images, the imaging system uses confocal scanning in combination with ps diode laser excitation and bh's multi-dimensional TCSPC process. The object is placed directly in the image plane of the scanner. The system has inputs for two lasers, and two fully parallel detection channels. For NAD(P)H FLIM, a 375 nm picosecond diode laser is used for excitation. The emission is detected through a 440 to 475 nm bandpass filter. The system can be extended for simultaneous detection of FAD. In that case, a 405 nm laser is used in the second laser channel, and multiplexed with the 375 nm laser. FAD data are recorded in the second detection channel.

LaVision FlowMaster Underwater PIV

2358 17 SysteminApplication

The modular concept of LaVision’sFlowMaster Underwater PIV systems allows a large variety of PIV imaging configurations for uncompromised performance. 2D-, Stereo- and Tomo-PIV measurements are realized using torpedo designs or compact vertical borescope setups. The submarine housings consist of high quality stainless steel tube components containing the remotely controlled PIV camera(s) and sheet optics. Hydrofoils cover the stiff vertical support tubes for minimum drag and wake. The laser and electronic components are accommodated in watertight housings mounted on the carriage above water level. The whole construction is CFD optimized and carefully tested up to a maximum towing speed of 7 m/s at a water depth of 1.5 m.

nLight Corona Fiber Lasers

New Corona™ fiber lasers™ fiber lasers from nLIGHT® feature programmable beam quality enabled by groundbreaking all-fiber technology. Rapid tuning of the fiber laser spot size optimizes machine tool performance across all metals and thicknesses. Corona enables the development of highly versatile machine tools so job shops and factories can truly "have it all". No longer must they choose between purchasing multiple tools, accepting compromised performance from existing tools, or using complex, expensive, and fragile free-space optical technologies.

With one Corona laser, users can rapidly select from high-intensity, small-spot-size beams to large, donut-shaped beams, and everything in between. This dramatic advance allows optimal thick and thin metal cutting, higher cutting speed and quality, and improved piercing and small-feature processing with the same tool. The unmatched performance and flexibility of Corona fiber lasers also negate the need for post processing, enabling factory automation and “lights out” operation. End users get the best of all worlds—the speed of high-power fiber lasers for thin metal processing, the quality of CO2 lasers for thick metal processing, and the high uptime and low operating costs of a fiber laser solution.
