AA Opto-electronic: Polychromatic Laser Modulators

AA Optoelectronics

Newsflash: WINDOWS 7 - 64 bits driver: now available for MDSnC for fast USB control

MDS: Multi Digital Synthesizer : These AA Optoelectronics drivers based on Direct Digital Synthesizers (DDS), produce multiple fixed stable and accurate RF frequency signals for polychromatic modulators. Their brand new design with "on the edge" technology offers unique performance in term of accuracy, speed and stability (single/multi-line), thanks to their internal temperature correction and high linearity design.The built in amplifier delivers the necessary RF power to drive the acousto-optic device, with reduced power consumption (AA "COLD DESIGN"). The RF output power per channel can be individually modulated (MOD IN signals) or simultaneously modulated (BLANKING signal). AA focussed on a ultra low crosstalk version with superior fast and fall time. The adjustments of the driver (Frequency & Power) can be done with a remote control, USB or through RS 232 communication to allow user flexibility in power control or frequency scanning.

Thorlabs water-cooled breadboards



  • Working Pressure: Rated up to 80 psi
  • Working Temperature Range: 0 to 60 °C
  • Sizes: 12" x 12" and 12" x 24" (300 mm x 300 mm and 300 mm x 600 mm)

These Thorlabs water cooled breadboards are versions of their popular MB series breadboards that have been plumbed to accept a water supply. They feature a standard 1.0" or 25 mm hole pattern and are ideal for applications involving sensors, detectors, lasers, LEDs, or other apparatuses that may require temperature stabilization. The boards can be used for cooling or heating, depending on requirements.

Raman analysis of diesel fuel using the Ocean Optics Maya200 Pro-NIR

Ocean Optics Maya 2000Pro offers high quantum efficiency and high dynamic range and is responsive in the deep UV (~185-300 nm).

Raman spectroscopy is an excellent technique for the identification and characterization of fuels. With no requirement for sample preparation and the power to identify and quantify materials using robust, handheld, portable instrumentation, it is no surprise that Raman has found so many uses in a range of industries. In the case of fuels, Raman spectra contain a wealth of spectral features due to the presence of different types of hydrocarbons resulting in a unique Raman fingerprint based on chemical composition.
