Thorlabs: Liquid Crystal Noise Eater for 1050 - 1620nm

Thorlabs’ new Liquid Crystal Noise Eaters / Laser Amplitude Stabilizers are precision instruments for stabilizing, modulating, and attenuating the power of linearly polarized light. These closed-loop systems are designed for use with light in the 425 - 650 nm (LCC3111), 650 - 1100 nm (LCC3112), and now also available for the 1050 - 1620 nm (LCC3113) wavelength range.

Utilizing a liquid crystal amplitude modulator, combined with a photodiode for power measurement and a feedback control circuit, the Noise Eaters can eliminate intensity noise in linearly polarized light, achieving amplitude stabilization of within 0.05% of a selected output power. The input power can be set to one of four ranges using the switch on the top of the unit. The potentiometer is then adjusted to select the output power. Long-term performance and frequency characterization for each noise eater model are shown on the Performance tabs.

Edmund Optics Low Scatter Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors

  • Designed for Low Scatter in the Visible Spectrum
  • Aluminum Substrate Mirrors
  • Improved Surface Roughness and Surface Figure

Edmund Optics TECHSPEC® Low Scatter Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors are designed to direct and focus incident collimated light at a specific angle with minimal scatter loss. TECHSPEC Low Scatter Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors have been designed using a specific process that decreases scatter in the visible spectrum, and have been visually inspected with a HeNe laser to ensure low scatter. TECHSPEC Low Scatter Off-Axis Parabolic Mirrors have improved surface roughness and surface figure compared to standard off-axis parabolic mirrors.

Ocean Optics Ventana High Sensitivity Spectrometers

Ocean Optics Ventana

The Ventana spectrometers from Ocean Optics are high-performance spectrometers providing exceptional throughput and sensitivity in a small footprint. Designed to minimize light loss and maximize throughput, Ventana spectrometers provide exceptionally high sensitivity. This high sensitivity enables low excitation power for Raman and fluorescence measurements and short integration times for fast measurements. With its smart, modular design and compact footprint, Ventana spectrometers are a cost-effective alternative to integrated benchtop systems with no compromise in performance.

Laser Jailer: The Active Laser Guarding System with Inherent Fail Safe Technology

Laser Jailer

This photograph shows three enclosures housing a 16kW fibre laser which is distributed to three robots - one in each separate room within the enclosure. ICS-15XM Laser interlock controllers can be seen adjacent to the doors.

The Laser Jailer active laser guarding system combines an inherently fail-safe laser detection technique and Lasermet's proven laser interlock control system technology to create an active laser guarding system which is fail safe to Machinery Directive Standard EN13849-1.

The system is designed to contain a high powered laser beam in a laser enclosure which is smaller and lighter than would otherwise be necessary. It comprises of an outer passive enclosure and an inner active enclosure made up of detector tiles which are connected to Lasermet's ICS interlock system.

Lasermet's fail-safe technology isolates the laser safety input in less than 50ms. The laser machine responds to this laser termination signal and laser radiation is terminated – the actual laser termination time being dependent on the laser machine in use.

Toptica 2013 BEC Awards

The Senior and Junior BEC Awards 2013 honor outstanding research in Experimental and/or Theoretical Physics of Quantum Degenerate Atomic Gases. The senior prize recognizes work that is firmly established and has significantly advanced the field of quantum degenerate gases. The Junior Prze recognizes outstanding work by a young scientist for independent research early in his or her academic career. Each prize consists of a 2,500 Euro cash award, and a certificate citing the contributions of the recipients. The prizes are awarded under the auspices of the biannual BEC conference and are sponsored by Toptica Photonics AG. Full details here.
