23 August 2016: CNOD System | CMOS Night Observation Device

Rochester Precision Optics, LLC

CNOD, Rochester Precision Optics’ integrated, high performance CMOS Night Observation Device, is proof of RPO’s optical components and assembly capability for its customers. This multi-function imaging system allows for visible and IR wavelengths from 500-1080 nm, still and video image capture, and 1.064 laser spot. It enables its operator to see in the day (bright sun) as well as low light (night) with high contrast and high resolution. The CNOD is three systems in one, at a fraction of the cost of similar systems currently on the market.
Together, let’s redefine what’s possible—with military precision and fearless design.

16 August 2016: Aerotech’s HexGen™ Hexapods

Aerotech, Inc.

Aerotech’s HexGen™ hexapods represent a significant advance in six-degree-of-freedom positioning performance. The HEX500-350HL high-load, precision hexapod is ideal for applications in x-ray diffraction, sensor testing, and high-force device manipulation.
With its high-load capacity, large travels, high speeds, and sub-micrometer precision, the HEX500-350HL means no compromising on application specifications. The HEX500-350HL is the only hexapod on the market today that provides guaranteed positioning accuracy specifications.
Superior Structural Design
The HEX500-350HL is actuated with six high-accuracy struts that are built with precision preloaded bearings, ball screws, and drive components. Unlike competitive hexapods driven by DC brushed servomotors, the HEX500-350HL is driven by AC brushless, slotless servomotors that maximize device lifetime and performance. The servomotors are directly coupled to the actuator ball-screw enabling increased drive stiffness, higher positioning accuracy, and better minimum incremental motion (20 nm in XYZ and 0.2 μrad for θxθyθz) when compared to competitive designs that use belts or compliant couplings. The strut pivot-joints are engineered to provide low friction and high stiffness enhancing overall hexapod performance.
Design Flexibility
The HEX500-350HL is designed with flexibility and customization in mind. The platform and base can be easily modified with user-specific features or mounting patterns. The HEX500-350HL is designed with a 150 mm diameter clear aperture in both the platform and base to allow for workpiece access from the bottom. The base is designed with mounting holes to adapt directly to English or metric optical tables. The hexapod can also be vacuum prepared for demanding applications in synchrotron sample or optics adjustment, semiconductor manufacturing and inspection, or satellite sensor testing.

15 July 2016: Precision Impedance Analyzer and LCR Meter

Zurich Instruments AG

With the launch of the 5 MHz MFIA, Zurich Instruments has introduces a new type of impedance analyzer and precision LCR meter. The instrument is based on Zurich Instruments proven lock-in amplifier technology, allowing more accurate (0.05%, typical) and faster (upto 20 ms per measurement point) measurements over a larger frequency range in comparison to conventional impedance analyzers. The MFIA impedance analyzer is ideal for impedance measurements from 1 mO to 10 GO in the frequency range 1 Hz to 5 MHz; DC measurements can also be performed. The instrument s LabOne user interface comes with a number of new features specifically designed for impedance analysis: the Compensation-Advisor supports the user step-by-step through the elimination of unwanted parasitic effects between the instrument and the probe; the Confidence-Indicator calculates the reliability level of the measurement based on the measurement parameters and sets a warning flag in critical cases; the Parametric Sweeper allows fast and simple automation of measurement tasks. An embedded webserver makes software installation unnecessary, with the instrument being easily accessible via a web-browser. Measurement data can be transferred directly to PC and, for programmers, APIs and examples for LabView, MATLAB, Python and C are included. The MFIA can be used for a broad range of applications including the characterization of semiconductor materials, components, and solar cells as well as dielectric spectroscopy, bio-impedance, and microfluidics. www.zhinst.com/products/mfia

8 June 2016: Portable CO2 Snow Jet

Applied Surface Technologies

Applied Surface Technologies is pleased to introduce the first totally portable CO2 snow jet. The unit weighs less than 4 pounds and can clean remote optics far removed from any power source. A typical fiber optic connector can be cleaned in a second. The advantage of the unit is for cleaning optics that are in the field, away from a laboratory. Usage is aimed at fiber optic connectors, lens, mirrors away from the lab or factory, and any situation where power may not be accessible. It is based upon Li ion batteries for power for opening the solenoid valve. CO2 sources are paint ball canisters, and they can be refilled too.

7 March 2016: UHF Arbitrary Waveform Generator with Integrated Detection

Zurich Instruments AG

Fast and intuitive waveform programming with sequence branching based on mutiple detection schemes for Quantum Computing, NMR Spectroscopy and Mixed-Signal Device Testing Customers Zurich Instruments announced launch of a new ultra-high frequency arbitrary waveform generator (UHF-AWG) for its proven UHF 600 MHz lock-in amplifier platform. The UHF-AWG integrates signal generation and detection in a single instrument. We see the new AWG as a tool ideal for the demanding pulsed measurement protocols required by researchers in a range of labs, from those developing an operational quantum computer to those carrying out NMR spectroscopy experiments and engineers doing mixed signal device testing, said Dr. Jan Benhelm, Head of Marketing, Zurich Instruments. The UHF-AWG is a dual channel 600 MHz arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) with 128 MSa waveform memory per channel, 1.8 GSa/s temporal and 14-bit vertical resolution. Integrated detection options include a pulse counter, multiple demodulators, an oscilloscope and a boxcar averager. The integration of signal generation and detection in a single instrument helps to minimize feedback times and reduces the complexity of the experimental setup. The AWG is fully integrated into the LabOne instrument control software that provides a powerful scripting language with high-level AWG commands. Pulse sequences and waveforms can be easily defined and adjusted. Developed in close collaboration with advanced quantum physics researchers in Europe, it features standard waveform playback and amplitude modulation. In amplitude modulation mode, each AWG channel shapes one of up to 8 internally generated sine wave signals. This optimizes the generation of phase-coherent pulse patterns using the sequencer and generic pulse envelopes, and does not require uploading the entire waveform. As a result, waiting times for transfer of long phase-coherent patterns are significantly reduced. The UHF-AWG, like all UHF instruments developed by Zurich Instruments, has easy upgrade paths to increase functionality after purchase. The AWG is the latest instrument for the UHF lock-in amplifier platform. Since its introduction in 2012 that platform, along with subsequent additions such as the boxcar and digitizer, has been used in a wide range of applications in leading universities, industrial laboratories and other organizations. That means we have gained a deep understanding of the needs of advanced research communities around the world. We continuously assimilate that know-how with new releases, new add-ons and upgrades, said Dr. Sadik Hafizovic, CEO, Zurich Instruments.
