Edmund Optics  Optotune 3mm Clear Aperture Focus Tunable Lenses are easily integrated into a variety of Machine Vision applications including inspection, sorting, and bar code reading. By applying a current, the Optotune 3mm Clear Aperture Focus Tunable Lenses are able to quickly change shape from concave to convex, and provides an adjustment of -13 to +13 diopters (-77 to +77mm). With a small form factor of 10mm diameter x 4mm thick, low power consumption, and fast settling time, these lenses are the ideal option for OEM integration.

Raptor launches NEW Ninox 1280 – VIS-SWIR imaging in HD

Ninox 1280 Med

Raptor Photonics, a global leader in the design and manufacture of high performance digital cameras has launched an additional member to its family of Visible SWIR cameras with the Ninox 1280, offering HD resolution for high end scientific and astronomy applications.

Using a 1280 x 1024 InGaAs sensor, cooled to -15°C, the Ninox 1280 offers visible extension from 0.4µm to 1.7µm to enable high sensitivity imaging. The 10µm x 10µm pixel pitch enables the highest resolution imaging. It will offer less than 40 electrons readout noise combined with one of the lowest dark current readings on the market.  The camera will offer ultra-high intrascene dynamic range of 69dB enabling simultaneous capture of bright & dark portions of a scene.

Available with a 12-bit CameraLink output, the Ninox 1280 will run up to 60Hz. The camera will feature On-board Automated Gain Control (AGC) which will enable the best contrast image from low light to bright as well as an on-board intelligent 3 point Non-Uniform Correction (NUC) algorithm providing the highest quality images. The camera comes with a range of analysis software including XCAP and Micromanager and a standard CameraLink frame grabber (EPIX).

New TOPTICA300 mW Continuous-Wave UV Laser features excellent Lifetime and Plug & Play Operation

TopWave 300mW 266nm

TOPTICA's TopWave product line of industrial continuous-wave UV laser reaches a new power level. The latest member, TopWave 266, is now available with 300 mW output power at 266 nm. It provides a first-class lifetime (> 10,000 h), outstanding low-noise performance (typ. < 0.1% RMS) and excellent power stability (< 1 %). Adding premium beam quality (M² < 1.3), high wall-plug efficiency (no chiller needed) and a compact footprint, this narrow linewidth (< 1 MHz) system is more than just a coherent laser.

The TopWave 266 meets the needs for high reliability of demanding applications like semicon inspection, optical lithography, FBG fabrication, laser mastering and Raman spectroscopy. Its complete UV beam path, including TOPTICA’s proprietary SUV doubling cavity, is enclosed in a specially sealed compartment which guarantees ultimate stability. In combination with a fully automated optics shifter it enables typical lifetimes well above 10,000 hours, thus notably extending maintenance intervals and lowering cost of ownership.

TOPTICA receives the laser guide star contract for ELT from ESO

SodiumStar 800x1300

Munich - December 18th: TOPTICA today signed an updated contract with the European Southern Observatory (ESO) for the production of four more lasers to be used in the adaptive optics system of the Extremely Large Telescope (ELT). The contract is an extension of a development and deployment contract for ESO’s Very Large Telescope (VLT) and will be executed by TOPTICA Projects GmbH, a recently started TOPTICA spin-off. These unique guide star laser systems have been extensively tested at one of the major ESO telescopes in Paranal, Chile for more than two years. They will be a key component of the new ELT telescope and will help to achieve an unprecedented spatial resolution for optical/infrared ground-based telescopes. The ELT is expected to see first light in 2024.
