16 February 2016: Tip-Tilt-Piston MEMS mirror development kit

Mirrorcle Technologies, Inc.

Mirrorcle Technologies, Inc (MTI), the California-based manufacturer of patented, gimbal-less micromirrors, today announced the commercial availability of tip/tilt/piston devices fully supported by a plug-and-play development kit. The company s MEMS-based beam-steering micromirrors now feature third dimension agility in addition to tipping and tilting the the X and Y axes, these devices are now available with a third, pistoning movement. While these gimbal-less devices have increasingly been deployed around the globe, not many users have taken advantage of their third dimension pistoning capability. This is exciting news, said Dr. Milanovic, Founder and CEO of Mirrorcle Technologies. While we have been marketing our devices as the world s fastest and lowest power-consuming quasi-static (Point-to-Point) dual-axis optical beam steering solutions, some of our customers requested if we could also offer specialized hardware and software to also offer access to their intrinsic capability to move up and down in the Z direction. You can truly say that this was a customer-inspired achievement, and we are excited to announce the availability of standard products that allow for either X/Y beam-steering or pistoning (up and down) movement and of course any combinations of the three degrees of freedom at the same time! Gimbal-less MEMS actuator design allows for maximum liberty of action Mirrorcle Technologies has been offering high-quality dual-axis MEMS mirror devices for over a decade, with its unique, proprietary gimbal-less design that offers not only highest speed tip/tilt capability, but thanks to the freely suspended actuator stage also pistoning or z-axis freedom. This is applicable for both integrated, monolithically fabricated MEMS mirrors, as well as for bonded, modular devices consisting of an actuator die (=the engine that moves the mirror) and a bonded mirror of various sizes up to 5.0mm in diameter. The central area of Mirrorcle s actuator chips is suspended by four bi-axial single-crystal silicon (Si) linkages, which connect to powerful comb-drive rotators. For the standard operation, tipping and tilting the X and/or Y axes to arbitrary angles at high speeds, whether in quasi-static operation of e.g. for raster-scans or vector graphics, two opposite rotators receive bias differential voltages which makes one rotator go UP and the other go DOWN , resulting in tilting of the stage/mirror via the Si suspensions. For the pistoning movement, a new USB MEMS (TTP) Controller with 8 instead of the standard 4 channels was designed, allowing users to address each rotator s UP and DOWN section individually and thereby enabling independent control of pistoning in the Z direction. This 8-channel drive methodology allows devices to move with 3 DoF (three degrees of freedom), and with the same >=14-bit resolution customers are used to from tip/tilt-only MEMS mirrors by Mirrorcle. The company s Electronics Engineers designed and realized this specialized TTP control unit to match very closely the standard USB MEMS Controller, however utilizing 2 embedded (digital-input) PicoAmp MEMS drivers instead of one. Astonishingly, although the new Controller utilizes a fast 32-bit MCU as well as two Mirrorcle MEMS drivers, it is still fully powered from a regular USB port which the software also uses to communicate with the Controller. We designed a motherboard with suitable connectors to accommodate the two embedded PicoAmp MEMS drivers, and fitted it all into a compact box which directly connects to a user s USB port, said Abhishek Kasturi, Senior Electronics Engineer at Mirrorcle. The existing layout and hardware concepts were optimized and we fit everything into a compact and easy-to use USB-powered package that is appealing to all customers . Specialized MEMS driver for tip/tilt/piston operation now available from Mirrorcle While the pistoning motion, as well as the combination of tip/tilt combined with Z axis movement have been demonstrated and published in the past, Mirrorcle engineers recently decided to offer this capability optionally to all of its customers. One of the key reasons is that the new approach is fully supported with the comprehensive software suite and Software Development Kit (SDK), which features additional examples in C++ that allow users to freely expand and realize their own tip/tilt/pistoning mirror movements. Any of the company s dual-axis devices are able to piston when used with the new USB MEMS TTP Controller and the new software suite. Beside the TTP Controller, also required are modified versions of the company s TinyPCB connectorized packages and/or MiniPCB MEMS mounts to allow all 8 drive-channels to reach the MEMS devices actuator terminals. Dr. Milanovic further explains: Actually we have delivered Tip-Tilt-Piston prototype systems on several occasions in the past years, however it required specialized multi-channel data acquisition cards, software, and output boards. Now we have fully streamlined tip-tilt-piston driving in our standard software API to provide a very simple access to applications programming to users that is nearly identical to our standard systems. For our present customers it would be a seamless transition to the new API and Controllers. Basically every command that previously involved setting x, y, (tip-tilt) and m (digital port) data, now involves setting x, y, p (tip-tilt-piston), and m (digital port) data. It is that simple!

12 February 2016: Camera and Sensor Calibration Light Source Delivers Unmatched Accuracy

Gamma Scientific

A new light source for camera and image sensor calibration from Gamma Scientific delivers higher spectral resolution and accuracy, together with a broader color gamut, compared to any previously available halogen or LED-based source. The new SpectralLED tunable light source accomplishes this by combining the output of 30 discrete LEDs, each having a different center wavelength. This enables the SpectralLED to be programed on-demand to produce output that closely matches virtually any illuminant source (e.g. blackbody, daylight, fluorescent, LED, CIE illuminants), or the spectrum of any illuminant reflected by a target (such as a Macbeth or X RITE target). The SpectralLED can even be swept through wavelengths to simulate a scanning monochromator, but with no moving parts. In addition to superior spectral resolution and accuracy, the SpectralLED also offers about ten times higher brightness than any competitive product. This allows measurements over a much larger, linear dynamic range, and is sufficient to illuminate virtually any detector at levels up to saturation. And, no matter at what level the SpectralLED is driven, a combination of DC constant current drivers, optical feedback, and thermoelectric cooling maintains its high luminance accuracy in real time. This also allows source brightness to be varied directly (through drive current), rather than by pulsewidth modulation (PWM), thus eliminating any flicker. Despite its technical sophistication, the SpectralLED is easy to use because the firmware allows all functionality to be simply accessed through ASCII commands sent over USB or RS-232 interfaces. All source calibration data, RMS fitting, and spectral presets are managed by the device internally, making it particularly well suited for embedded applications in production QA/QC. The SpectralLED is intended to allow sensor, camera and system manufacturers to perform a wide variety of calibration and testing functions with a single instrument. Applications encompass smartphones/tablets, DSLR cameras, cinematography camcorders, diagnostic medical imaging, technical and industrial photography, or any OEM camera/sensor/detector application. Specific tasks include testing for white balance, spatial uniformity, defects, linearity, dynamic range, signal-to-noise, responsivity and ISO speed. With over 50 years of expertise in building high-performance light measurement instruments, Gamma Scientific is trusted by the world s leading organizations to provide accurate results. Products include precision spectroradiometers, integrating spheres, calibration light sources and reflectance measurement equipment. Gamma Scientific also operates an ISO 17025, NVLAP accredited calibration and testing laboratory (NVLAP Laboratory code 200823-0) in San Diego, California.

11 February 2016: UV-LED Illuminators for DLP® Applications Now Provides over 20W of Optical Power

Innovations in Optics, Inc.

Innovations in Optics, Inc. launches it next generation LumiBright 3300B UV-LED Illuminators for Digital Light Processing (DLP) applications such as 3D printing, maskless lithography, prepress digital imaging, phototherapy, and refractive surgery. DLP and the DLP logo are trademarks of Texas Instruments. The UV-LED technology offers more reliable and economical advantages over lasers and arc lamps in UV DLP systems. High optical power over 20W matches the power output of fiber-coupled laser diode bundles at lower cost. The Model 3300B series of UV-LED Illuminators for DLP comprise a densely packed UV-LED array. Standard LED center wavelengths include 365 nm, 375 nm, 385 nm, 395 nm and 405 nm. Single or multi-wavelength configurations are available. The combination of different wavelengths optimizes the spectral balance of the exposure for all types of UV processed materials. The multi-wavelength feature, in maskless lithography for manufacturing printed circuit boards, supports many photoresists ranging from general purpose dry film to conventional solder mask. For pre-press operations in the printing industry, computer-to-plate (CtP) systems with UV-LED can support highly cost-efficient, mature UV-plate technology. In computer-to-screen (CtS) printing, UV LED and DLP exposure eliminates the need for several consumables and production steps improving process efficiency at lower cost with higher quality. The 3300B series features a UV-LED array coupled to a high efficiency, non-imaging collection optic with an aspect ratio matched to DLP chips. An integral imaging optic is telecentric over the entire DLP and is constrained in angle to match the micromirror tilt angle. Water-cooling allows the UV-LED array to be operated at a very high current density. The result is an extremely high power, highly uniform UV-LED illuminator which provides unprecedented speed and resolution for UV DLP applications. Up to an 18-die UV-LED array can be integrated into the 3300B series which can be driven and modulated independently for precise exposure control in direct imaging systems. Innovations in Optics has also developed an OEM driver with Ethernet and serial control to support this feature. The driver provides independent current control to each of the LED die to achieve optimal performance and lifetime. Thermal management in the 3300B series includes a water heat exchanger for cooling of the LED array, and an onboard thermistor for temperature monitoring. In addition to multi-wavelength, other user options include a selection of non-imaging collection optics to match various DMD sizes, up to two photodetectors with optional integral spectral bandpass filters for feedback control or exposure monitoring, fixed or adjustable mounting flanges, and straight or right-angle hose barbs for the water heat exchanger.

11 February 2016: Optics & electronics by Fraunhofer ISC

Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC

Materials and processes for optical applications The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC develops and licenses superior optical materials and corresponding process techniques for optical applications. In particular, inorganic-organic hybrid polymers ORMOCER s can be tuned with respect to their optical properties and allow processing with different methods like conventional UV lithography, Nanoimprint Lithography (NIL), UV embossing, replication techniques, printing techniques and Two-Photon-Absorption (TPA) patterning technologies. ORMOCER s excel by their low optical loss and their outstanding thermal, chemical and optical stability such as transparency stability under high power exposure. Freeform microstructures for microoptical sensors Fraunhofer ISC and Fraunhofer IIS create complex microoptical structures using ORMOCER s, e.g., to realize color sensors directly on chip level. The sensors measure optical spectra independently of the incidence of the light and can be employed in smartphones or LED lighting in cars. The employed optical microstructures are processed by the new technology Two-Photon Polymerization (2PP). 2PP is a true freeform and direct 3D fabrication technology enabling innovative and very sophisticated microstructures with feature sizes down to 100 nm. The technology uses tightly focused femtosecond laser pulses to trigger localized photopolymerization inside a transparent photopolymer. The underlying process Two-Photon Absorption (TPA) can only occur if the light intensity is sufficiently high so that the solidification of the material is located in the tiny focal volume. Consequently, 2PP is not limited to a layer-wise fabrication as in other 3D printing approaches. For 3D fabrication the focal volume is scanned in 3D space followed by a solvent wash to separate the rest of the liquid photopolymer from the solidified 3D structure. Nanopatterned surfaces for microlenses and microfluidic components Another application of nanopatterned ORMOCER s are microstructures generated within -fluidic channels which are realized by Selective Laser Etching (SLE) in fused silica. Fraunhofer ISC and Fraunhofer ILT use these ORMOCER microstructures for filtering techniques or in order to create tailored light distributions within the microfluidic channel. By combining the 3D fabrication of microchannels and microfluidic chips with additional ORMOCER microstructures, new device concepts for microfluidic and optofluidic systems in several fields of application (e.g. lab-on-chip) are enabled. Scattering layers for thin film solar cells and OLED lighting In order to increase the efficiency of thin film solar cells and OLED lighting, Fraunhofer ISC has developed material and layer concepts for scattering layers with adaptable properties based on sol-gel chemistry. Internal scattering layers with adjusted refractive index to ITO are used to improve outcoupling efficiency of OLED lighting panels. The planarized scattering layer is compatible to subsequent process steps such as the application of vacuum processed ITO and is produced by low-cost techniques like dip-coating or spray coating which can also be used for large-area panels. In solar cells a scattering layer is inserted between the substrate and the front contact to prolong the light path. This results in a higher efficiency.

9 February 2016: femtoJock-D

Biophotonic Solutions, Inc.

Biophotonic Solutions Inc. (BSI), the world leader in automated laser pulse compression, announces a new pulse shaping system, femtoJockD, to be added to the company s line of optical pulse shapers for ultrafast lasers. The femtoJock-D bridges the performance gap between the entry-level femtoJock line, which has relied on linear 128-pixel spatial light modulators (SLMs), and the popular MIIPS-HD system that uses 792x600 LCOS SLMs from Hamamatsu. It takes advantage of the same 2D LCOS SLM as our best-seller MIIPS-HD, but uses all-reflective optics. Such combination gives one almost twice as many control channels as the entry-level femtoJock, and it can handle shorter laser pulses than the MIIPS-HD system does, said Vittorio Fossati-Bellani, the Chief Executive Officer of BSI. The femtoJock-D system is an attractive solution for ultrafast-laser users that are looking for better ways to compress and shape their femtosecond pulses without straining their budget. The new system will be introduced at SPIE BiOS Expo and Photonics West 2016 trade shows.

3 February 2016: Very High Sensor-Density Multiplexing using a Wavelength-to-Time Domain Reflectometry Approach based on a Rapidly Swept Akinetic-Laser

FBGS

FBGS s DTG sensors in conjunction with new interrogation platforms. They shed light on how these sensors can jointly advance the overall performance of a quasi-distributed sensing system for a wide range of key current and future applications: 1- High DTG Sensor Count FBGS demonstrates a high spatial-density quasi-distributed sensing system that can accommodate over 1000 DTG sensors over a single optical fiber of more than 2 km long. The individual FBG sensors are of low reflectivity (0.1%), which helps stack a higher number of sensors in a more cost-effective approach that takes advantage of the established automated draw-tower process. A high-speed and high-precision interrogation platform introduced by Insight Photonic Solutions combines WDM/TDM schemes (dubbed as wavelength-to-time-domain reflectometry (WTDR)), which overcomes the status quo limitation of WDM and TDM measurement systems. The new approach opens up the door for the next generation applications (oil & gas, structural monitoring, perimeter monitoring, transportation networks, civil engineering, geotextile, etc.) that demand fast interrogation of high numbers of sensing points over long sensing lengths.. 2- Decoupling of T & e Cross-sensitivity with a Single PM-DTG Optical Fiber At the heart of the innovation is the fabrication of a special polarization-maintaining (PM) optical fiber inscribed with fiber Bragg grating (FBG) sensors using the draw-tower (PM-DTG s). The induced birefringence of this fiber is generating two narrowly-separated wavelength peaks (~ 0.5 nm) with orthogonal polarizations for each PM-DTG. In response to an external physical stimuli (T and/or e), both peaks respond with different responsivities to T & e. However, the peaks separation responds more predominately by T variations. Analytically, one can extract the decoupled signals and simultaneously monitor them independently. A new option for an interrogation scheme based on I4-platform (no moving parts) by FAZ Technology demonstrated a high reliability and high-accuracy approach in decoupling the inherited cross-sensitivity in measuring temperature (T) and strain (e). The platform provides higher stability performance (< 50 fm), which translates to a temperature stability of +/- 0.2 C. For the strain measurements, the orthogonal components show almost identical sensitivities of 1.176 pm/ e and 1.191 pm/ e. The exhibited performance will have a high impact for any application in distributed temperature measurement, where the optical fiber is under strain. Examples range from small size flexible minimally-invasive medical devices (catheters, needles, etc.) to remote monitoring of reactors and various industrial processing facilities.

1 February 2016: Xenon lamp with light intensity stabilization

Instytut Fotonowy

In traditional xenon lamps, the electric current passing through the light producing arc is stabilized. When the lamp is on, the working gas temperature and pressure changes, so does the light output. Thus the stabilization of electric current does not guarantee stable illumination of a sample. Our lamps have overcome that problem by introducing stabilization of light intensity rather than current.

27 January 2016: High-Performance Fluoride Compounds

Materion Advanced Material Group

High-Performance Fluoride Compounds Materion Introduces Innovative Starter Charges Building on past success with pre-melted oxides, Materion has developed a novel approach to producing vacuum-cast specialty optics grade fluoride compounds. The new melts are available in a range of compositions including magnesium fluoride (MgF2) to ytterbium fluoride (YbF3) and Yttrium fluoride (YF3) and shapes such as cones and evaporation discs. These Fluoride starter charges fit directly into liners or hearths and are currently for visible infrared (VIS/IR) materials although future plans may include DUV. The use of dense and conformal melts in the production process is particularly suited for long or short runs where stability is key; furthermore, risks such as particle outgassing, operator variance, environmental contaminants or collapsing granule underlayers must be minimized. The homogenous charges can offer advantages over using granulated forms (crystals, pellets) by offering a stable evaporation surface for a more uniform coating, consistent deposition rate, reduced spitting and maintaining a good melt pool over long runs. In producing the cones, a novel casting method is employed that transcends other consolidation or glassy state efforts where deposition power is drastically limited due to risk of pre-melt expansion or inconsistent density. Another benefit of the high cast density is the ability to hold a melt due to reduced capillary action of the molten evaporation material. Materion Capabilities To fully support specialty optics in semiconductor applications, Materion has been enhancing purity and usability on a host of key metals and materials. The new fluoride melt and cast technique is an example of our commitment to improving the stability and quality of coating materials. For more information or to inquire if this technique may be applied to your needs, please contact David.Sanchez@Materion.com or your Sales representative. If you are attending Photonics West, please stop by Materion s Booth 3092 to view these pre-melted forms.

26 January 2016: Gapless Photolithography: multiple filter coatings with no gap & overlap between filters.

Reynard Corp.

Reynard can customize patterns with geometries below 5 microns using our highly accurate photolithography process. The process defines a masking area using photoresist on the substrate that will be void of any deposited coating material. Unmasked areas will be fully coated. After the vacuum deposition process, the mask areas are lifted-off, leaving behind only a precision coated pattern. If multiple patterns are required, an alignment step is used to accurately place the next mask, and the process is repeated, typically with a different coating stack. Photolithography patterns can be applied to any vacuum compatible substrate material, including glass, particular plastics, and ceramics.

15 January 2016: Dual-axis MEMS mirror with 5.0mm diameter aperture for optical beam steering (scanning)

Mirrorcle Technologies, Inc.

Mirrorcle Technologies announces availability of 5.0mm diameter MEMS mirrors Mirrorcle Technologies introduces larger diameter MEMS mirrors for the first time at Photonics West 2016. In addition to its integrated mirrors ranging from 0.8mm to 2.4mm in diameter, and the modular bonded mirrors from 0.8mm to 4.2mm, the company now presents devices with 5.0mm diameter aperture. These mirrors will be able to accommodate larger beams, opening opportunities for a number of additional applications as well as increasing the capabilities for existing applications and customers. Mirrorcle s bonded MEMS mirror is a micro-assembly of a monolithically fabricated actuator engine and a mirror which is available in various sizes. For the new 5.0mm mirrors, larger MEMS actuators are recommendable because they offer more torque that result in higher speed for a given mirror size compared to smaller die. The outstanding performance of the very first 5.0mm mirror with an A4SR8 actuator triggered confidence to officially present this new size at the popular SPIE event in San Francisco. New 5.0mm MEMS mirrors offer stunning optical mirror quality Mirrorcle engineers utilized a recently acquired 3D optical surface metrology system to qualify the first batch of the new 5.0mm mirrors with respect to surface roughness and flatness. Traditionally, the company s mirrors have a guaranteed flatness that exceeds 5 meters radius of curvature (ROC), for any mirror size, with residual deviation less than 50nm. This quality is important in many applications in which beams need to be directed to predictable and repeatable angles while maintaining beam wavefront quality. Fabricated from polished, pure silicon wafers, MEMS mirrors are realized by deposition of a low-stress metal coating with an outstanding optical quality, purity and smoothness. The first articles of the new 5.0mm diameter MEMS mirror measured over stunning 100 meters ROC, with both the spherical and residual terms better than ?/20 and ?/40 for red and IR wavelengths, respectively. 5.0mm diameter MEMS mirror offers +/-5 mech. tip/tilt with a bandwidth of 500Hz The very first 5.0mm diameter MEMS mirror was assembled onto an A4SR8 actuator, offering a true mechanical tip/tilt capability of +/-5.0 for both axes, so a total mechanical sweep of 10 which translates into an optical Field of View (FoV) of 20 . Speed was measured resulting in a bandwidth of ~500Hz in both axes. This combination of the 5mm size, +/-5.0 mechanical angle, and 500Hz bandwidth therefore successfully accomplishes the company s design goal of the first ever 5-5-5 capability quasistatic MEMS mirror device. Like all of the company s MEMS, these mirrors offer a 14-bit repeatability (precision) when driven with designated MEMS drivers, so 16384 discrete angular positions are repeatably addressable in point-to-point mode between the negative maximum to positive maximum angle in both axes. We have truly come a long way since the sub-millimeter size mirrors from the early 2000s, commented Dr. Milanovic, CEO and Founder of Mirrorcle Technologies. Together with our manufacturing partners we have been able to push the total figure of merit for this MEMS technology well beyond what we anticipated was possible.

15 January 2016: PowerXP – Compact motorized attenuator

Altechna

Automated and continuous laser power control is a cost saving function in the list of laser features. Lasers operating in any regime (CW, Q-switching, mode locking) lack this function as the most important laser quality specifications are determined by solutions implemented in the laser cavity. Most of the laser manufacturers do not integrate extra-cavity continuous attenuation solutions in their lasers, as continuous power control is not required for every application. PowerXP is an extra-cavity attenuator, which provides continuous laser output power control in wide dynamic range allowing manipulation of transmitted power from 0.04% to 99%. To push spectral performance to the boundaries a combination of zero order half-wave phase retardation plate and high contrast Brewster thin film polarizer produced by IBS coating technology is being used. The operation principle of the attenuator is quite simple ?/2 phase retardation plate rotates the polarization of an incident beam, which then passes onto the polarizer where orthogonal polarizations S and P are separated into two separate S and P polarized beams. Intensity ratio between the two beams is controlled by rotating the waveplate without alteration of other beam/pulse parameters. Both S and P polarized beams can be used after using the attenuator, but detachable beam dump for S polarized beam is default for user convenience. The motor of the attenuator is driven by stepper controller that provides 6400 micro-steps between minimum and maximum attenuation which stands for the resolution of <0.02% per micro-step in laser power control. It is convenient to control the attenuator both via computer or using buttons on the controller at any time. Despite continuous attenuation, industrial applications require power manipulation at high rates. With PowerXP it takes only 1 second to switch between MIN and MAX attenuation. External attenuator adds extra dimensions to the laser device, but being the smallest polarization control based attenuator PowerXP can be easily integrated into a laser or laser system. Specifications: Dimensions: 60 x 32 x 64 mm Clear aperture: 8 mm Time between MIN and MAX attenuation: 1 sec Attenuation range: 0.04% - 99% Wavelength: any between UV and Mid-IR Resolution: 0.01% per step Control interface: USB Customization: available www.altechna.com

Kinetic River Corp.

Kinetic River Launches New Potomac Modular Flow Cytometer After successful live demos of our prototype modular flow cytometer (MFC) at three conferences in North America and Europe in 2015 in collaboration with Excelitas Technologies Corp. we formally named this easily customizable solution the Potomac modular flow cytometer. The Potomac is based on a modular design that can be configured for 1 to 4 lasers and 2 to 15 detectors. Using Excelitas/Qioptiq's fiber-coupled laser sources, the system can be easily customized for any color combination you request. The system can also be adapted to accept existing laser sources already in your hands--fiber-coupled or free-space. If you are looking to incorporate novel light sources not available from off-the-shelf systems, such as the latest orange lasers and even white-light lasers, the Potomac offers the ideal platform for testing new assays and new interrogation strategies. The detectors can likewise be customized depending on the application--from traditional high-sensitivity PMTs to high-QE silicon detectors for enhanced efficiency in certain spectral bands. Easily accessible components and intuitive filter placement make reconfiguration on the fly straightforward. The Potomac grows as you grow. A base unit can be acquired with the minimum capabilities needed (say, one laser and 4 detectors), but already designed with expansion in mind. Later, as needs evolve, the Potomac can be upgraded to add light sources and detection channels. Come see the live demo in our booth, or contact us for a quote request.

23 November 2015: OWIS® high-precision linear stages LIMES 84N-IMS: now also with integrated high resolution measuring system

OWIS GmbH

For years, they are among the best sellers under the high-precision linear stages the OWIS LIMES series. With their excellent positioning properties they are particularly suitable for use in research and development, where highest precision is required. The LIMES series are likewise ideal for industrial use by their suitability for continuous operation. After a comprehensive revision the motorized positioners are also available with integrated high resolution measuring system from the first quarter 2016. With this additional LIMES 84N-IMS series the new series LIMES 84N is extended. For the first time, OWIS has integrated the high resolution measuring system in positioners of this series. The construction height of the LIMES 84N of only 38 mm corresponds to the one of the LIMES 84N-IMS. Consequently, the new high-precision linear stages are particularly suitable for use in limited spaces. The LIMES 84N-IMS motor is almost completely encapsulated, so that damper and encoder cannot be dam-aged. Furthermore, with this series the LIMES with step motor and the LIMES with DC servo motor use the same 26 pin connection, which is also used to control the complete measuring system. Most interesting is that with this series it is possible to integrate the high-resolution measuring system also later on. With the new mounting grid, installation of the LIMES 84N-IMS is possible without removing the cover. In addition, the existing mounting grid of the previous LIMES 80 and LIMES 84 series is still available. The new LIMES 84N-IMS are characterized by their high-quality and technologically advanced components. The integrated ball screw and recirculating ball bearing guides enable a highly accurate positioning with very long life. The backlash-free guides ensure optimal motion as well as high load capacity. The highly resistant black anodized protective coating of the aluminium parts prevents almost all reflections or stray light. The LIMES 84N-IMS are available in different travel ranges of up to 270 mm, with 2-phase step motor or DC servo motor. All linear stages of the product line LIMES 84N-IMS can be combined and mounted arbitrarily, and thus allow flexible working. Vacuum-prepared versions are available on request. Of course, the LIMES 84N-IMS are of quality Made in Germany .

21 November 2015: Andon Image Sensor Sockets Provide Cost-Effective Way to Avoid Image Sensor Device Damage During PCB Assembly

Andon Electronics Corp.

Soldering image sensors directly to the PCB can be a very risky and expensive practice in terms of damaging the color array during soldering, scratching the glass cover during cleaning, blistering the PCB when desoldering a faulty device, and more. Image sensor sockets from Andon Electronics provide a cost-effective solution. For camera OEMs and their EMS suppliers, the higher melting point of today s lead-free (versus tin-lead) solders presents an increased risk of heat-related damage to any image sensor soldered directly to the PC board. Likewise, the higher temperature required to desolder a faulty or obsolete device increases the risk of damage to the PC board. Heat is not the only risk factor associated to mounting devices directly onto the PCB. Harsh cleaning solutions can scratch the sensor s glass cover whose clarity is essential to the proper functioning of the camera. The resulting yield losses depending on the cost of the device, the frequency of device or board damage, and the labor required to manually solder or desolder the image sensor can substantially erode profitability and compromise lead times. Soldering image sensors directly to the PCB also means holding up the start of PCB assembly until the devices arrive. The resulting expansion of lead times can compromise competitiveness, customer satisfaction, and sales figures. You can reduce this impact by keeping higher device inventories, but that ties up cash. As the inventor of numerous precision high-reliability sockets for military, aerospace, medical, and commercial use, Andon Electronics has a long history of helping companies protect against device yield losses. Camera OEMs and their EMS suppliers rely on Andon s unique SENSTAC sensor socket contact design, which was developed for military- and aerospace-grade high temperature/humidity/shock/vibration with 25-year life requirements. The company continues to aggressively innovate in ways that provide unique value to image sensor users. Andon s broad socket line accommodates a wide variety of LCC, PGA, BGA, and DIP footprints utilized by leading image sensor brands like ON Semiconductor, e2v, CMOSIS, Sony, Alphasense and many others. With its strong history of value engineering , the company is also well equipped to provide custom designs.

18 November 2015: GAS MEASUREMENT MODULE FOR HARSH ENVIRONMENTS

Micro-Hybrid Electronic GmbH

Micro-Hybrid s high-temperature gas sensor is based on the known NDIR measuring principle. In general, gas measurement modules operate at room temperatures (up to max. 60 C). In contrast, the model of Micro-Hybrid has the ability to withstand high temperatures up to 180 C. Its performance is possible because of Micro Hybrid s high temperature infrared components. The thermopile detector contains high effective BiSb / Sb thermocouples which enable a high sensitivity also at high temperatures. The MEMS infrared emitter consists of temperature stable, amorphous, diamond-like carbon coatings. This enables high membrane temperatures as well as high radiation intensities. The IR emitter and the IR detector are assembled using special technologies like soldering and welding to ensure the hermetic housing at these high temperatures. The real hermetic packaging technologies from Micro-Hybrid guarantee long term stability of infrared components used in harsh environments. Also, unlike adhesive bonding, there is no gas permeation into the case with soldered and welded joints. Backfilling ?inert?gases, like nitrogen, make this component useful in cold environments down to -35 C. It is possible to tune the sensor and emitter parameters with different backfill gases. For example, the sensitivity of the IR detector can be increased by backfilling an inert gas with a low thermal conductivity. Using the same low thermal conductivity gas, the power consumption of the IR emitters can be reduced. The Micro-Hybrid gas measurement module can be used to determine gas concentration at high temperatures and high humidity e.g. in medical, chemical or biochemical process control, or in applications where the detector is cyclically exposed to high temperatures.

6 November 2015: Linear Variable Bandpass Filters for Hyperspectral Imaging

Delta Optical Thin Film A/S

H rsholm, Denmark, October 22, 2015 Delta Optical Thin Film A/S announces the launch of several Linear Variable Bandpass Filters that are specifically designed for Hyperspectral Imaging. Hyperspectral imaging (HSI) has been used for a couple of decades in applications such as satellite imaging, air reconnaissance and other not overly price sensitive markets. Classical Hyperspectral imaging cameras use prisms or grating as dispersive elements. These cameras are bulky, sensitive to misalignment and very expensive. The advent of alternative approaches makes HSI attractive for volume markets or even consumer products, for example cancer detection, precision farming, food testing in supermarkets and many more. Delta Optical Thin Film A/S develops and manufactures custom Linear Variable Bandpass Filters (LVBPF) for mid-size and full-frame CCD/CMOS sensors (e.g. 25 mm x 25 mm or 24 mm x 36 mm). These filters offer very high transmission and are fully blocked in the light sensitive wavelength range of silicon-based detectors (200 nm to 1150 nm). The combination of LVBPFs with silicon detectors allows the design of very compact, robust and affordable HSI detectors that offer several advantages and benefits over conventional approaches: Huge aperture compared to grating and prism Higher transmission than grating and prism Short measurement time High suppression of stray light Excellent signal to noise ratio Delta Optical Thin Film A/S welcomes requests for custom designed Linear Variable Bandpass Filters. Available for immediate testing are filters with the following specifications: Centre wavelength range 450 nm to 880 nm, bandwidth approximately 2% of centre wavelength, transmission 60% to 90%, blocking range 200 nm to 1150 nm, blocking level OD4, size 24 mm x 36 mm Centre wavelength range 450 nm to 850 nm, bandwidth approximately 4% of centre wavelength, transmission 70% to 90%, blocking range 200 nm to 1100 nm, blocking level OD4, size 25mm x 25 mm Centre wavelength range 800 nm to 1000 nm, bandwidth approximately 0.6% of centre wavelength, transmission >70%, blocking range 200 nm to 1200 nm, blocking level OD4, size 19 mm x 8 mm Centre wavelength range 800 nm to 1000 nm, bandwidth approximately 1% of centre wavelength, transmission >70%, blocking range 200 nm to 1200 nm, blocking level OD4, size 19 mm x 8 mm The sizes are given as height x length, where height is perpendicular to the wavelength gradient and length is along the wavelength gradient.

6 November 2015: Double tilt mechanism DTT35XS by Cedrat Technologies

CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES

The Double tilt mechanism so called DTT 35 XS has been developed by CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES with the CNES support considering different space applications. A first application of this mechanism was found in the frame of PHARAO (the first space cold atomic clock, to be operated on board of the ISS) but other applications can be found, such SILEX inter-link satellite communication. This mechanism is based on two pairs of APA35XS, Amplified Piezo Actuators displaying 35 m of stroke each, arranged in cross configuration. The mechanism allows both a deflection of +/- 2 mrad around the X and Y axis and a vertical displacement of 35 m in the Z direction. In order to achieve the two qx and qy deflections, each pair of APA35XS is electrically driven in push pull configuration, so the device only requires two output channels from the standard driving electronics LA75A-2 of CEDRAT TECHNOLOGIES. In the context of the PHARAO space mission, a set of 10 mechanisms will be integrated by EADS-SODERN for the stability control of the optical molasses near to the outlet of the Cesium atomic fountain. The DTT35XS will perform this control by changing the angle of incidence of a laser beam in front of an optical fibre. This new 3 dof piezo mechanism presents a high bandwidth (higher than 1 kHz) which can be useful for precise and fast optical applications such like optical switches, laser cavity tuning and spectrometry.

Compensation of thermal shift and the demand from high laser power density has led to the use of fused silica lenses and to the development of specific low absorption coatings over the last several years. This is especially true for our beam expanders have been optimized to handle the high power density because of the small beam diameter on the entrance side. In addition to the low absorption coating for 515 nm- 545 nm (code /292) and 1,030 nm 1,090 nm (code /328) Sill Optics now also offers these high performance coatings for the UV range for 343 nm 355 nm for all versions of available beam expanders (Code /574). Standard anti-reflective coatings for this waveband consist of materials that already have slight absorption at 355 nm. That leads to degradation problems and limited durability especially at high density of laser power. The materials used in /574 coating are suitable for use in the range down to 193 nm and therefore show a clearly lower absorption at 343 nm 355 nm. That provides a longer product life, higher possible power density und a reduction of thermal effects on the beam. All standard beam expanders S6EXPxxxx, as well as our new compact series S6EXKxxxx and the fused silica zoom beam expander series S6EXZxxxx are available with the new coating.

7 October 2015: Diode Laser Lenses now available in fused silica with low absorption coating from 900nm to 1070 nm

Sill Optics GmbH & Co. KG

Diode laser power increases and makes higher demands on the optics. Additionally, the typical wavelength of the diode lasers of 808 nm 980 nm shifted to longer wavelengths based on higher achievable efficiency. Sill Optics reacts and enlarges the F-Theta series for diode lasers by launching pure fused silica lenses as already used for USP and high power applications in solid-state lasers at various wavelengths with success. These high-power lenses are equipped with the new coating /449. It offers a transmission of at least 99.75 % over the entire wavelength range from 900 nm to 1,070 nm and shows the identical low absorption values like the coating for 1,030 nm 1,090 nm. Fused silica lenses are optimized for one wavelength and show dispersion effects. For same scan angle, spot location is shifted with different wavelengths, for example. Due to high fiber diameter and large spot sizes on the scan area the overlap of foci is still sufficient. Because of that, fused silica lenses can be combined with high power laser diodes without difficulty. Regarding large input beam diameter and high laser power, Sill Optics offers high-end fused silica aspheres as collimating elements and focusing elements at non-scanning applications. Aspheres with focal length of 20 mm to 200 mm are available with the new wideband low absorption coating /449.

7 October 2015: Compensation of the thermal shift by passive components

Sill Optics GmbH & Co. KG

Sill Optics developed within project TFOS (no KF-3015201DF2), an optical system for compensation of thermal shift in high power lenses for the waveband 1,030 nm 1,090 nm. This Project has been promoted by German government aid for small and middle-sized enterprises (ZIM). As a result, we can present a compensation element based on negative temperature coefficient of refractive index. This element can equalize the thermal focus shift of the successive lens depending on the thickness of the irradiated glass. Because focus shift strongly depends on the number of surfaces and the thickness of the irradiated glass it s not possible to use a standard system for absolute compensation. In this case, you have to calculate the required thickness of the compensation element separately for an optimal adjustment. The trials showed that focal shift can be reduced by a factor of 2-3 with some standard thicknesses and by a factor of 10 using customized calculation. Sill Optics presents this compensation element at the Munich Laser exhibition. The standard elements are available in three different thicknesses and can be inserted in static and dynamic applications: S4SET9301/024 - /044 and /070. It is built up as a plano parallel panel and fits to any system in the parallel optical path.

Delta Optical Thin Film A/S

Edinburgh Biosciences and Delta Optical Thin Film A/S jointly announce a laser attenuator based on linear variable thin film technology Edinburgh/H rsholm June 15, 2015 Edinburgh Biosciences and Delta Optical Thin Film announce the release of a new type of laser attenuator that is based on Delta s proprietary linear variable optical coating technology (patent pending). This radically new and patent pending solution to laser attenuation has some remarkable features and benefits compared to conventional laser attenuators. The Laser Optical Multilayer Attenuator (LOMA) is based on optical thin film coating technology with no absorption and withstands high laser power. The laser beam is transmitted without distortion of beam profile with no extra optics required. Even with short laser pulses down to 70 fs no pulse broadening is observed. The optical coating is designed for a wide range of laser wavelengths and works independent of polarisation. For safety reasons, the rejected power is directly dumped by reflection within the unit. A linear drive of the wedged optical thin film coating provides continuous control of laser output from 98% to less than 5%. The mounting of the unit includes adjustable input and output apertures. The unit contains compact adjustable mounting and housing and is very simple to operate. For a demonstration visit Delta Optical Thin Film s booth. A Linear Variable Filter (LVF) is made from wedged optical thin film coatings, whose spectral properties vary nearly linearly along the long side of the filter. It is possible to adjust the position of the edge wavelength by sliding the filter with respect to the incident light. The Laser Optical Multilayer Attenuator makes use of this property using a customised version of an LVF design.
