The PG100N allows light measurement with fully NIST-traceable performance. Through an integrated, high resolution color display, parameters such as LUX, CCT, chromaticity, CRI and SPD can be viewed instantaneously or monitored over time. The CMOS linear image sensor is effective from 380 nm in the UVA to 780 nm in the near-infrared. In addition to internal data logging, downloads via SD card, USB port or Wi-Fi mode allow data tracking and analysis with download capability in Excel and JPG formats.

The Mighty Light Plus (ML+) from Spectrolight is a high power white light source for microscopy, white light interferometry, machine vision, and precision inspection applications. The ML+ outputs up to 7 watts from a 10 mm diameter, detachable, armored light guide. This provides high spatial uniformity suitable for both wide-field and focused spot illumination applications. The ML+ bulb temperature of 3400 K delivers output as short as 350 nm, while producing useful power above 2.5 µm.

Driving a broad range of LED illumination, SMARTEK Vision’s HPSC4 LED current controller comes with a digital regulated buck and boost switching power supply with up to 120 W output. The four individually controllable input and output channels enable asynchronous operation and full control over light intensity, timing and synchronization, as well as over modulation of one of more lights for different lighting scenarios via a single controller. HPSC4 produces up to 40 A pulses at a maximum of 48 V on the output. The input-to-output delay of down to 2 µs allows pulses with a resolution of up to 1 µs/ 1 mA and durations from 1 µs to 60 s.
Low scatter mirrors

Edmund Optics introduces TECHSPEC low scatter off-axis parabolic (OAP) mirrors. Providing a surface figure of λ/8 RMS and a surface roughness of less than 50 Å RMS, these precision mirrors are designed for low scatter in the visible spectrum. They precisely direct and focus incident collimated light at a specific angle, resulting in minimal scatter loss. Designed using a proprietary process that decreases scatter in the UV and visible region, each low scatter off-axis parabolic mirror undergoes a visual inspection with a HeNe laser to ensure low scatter.

Gooch and Housego presents the 397 nm Fiber-Q, a fiber coupled acousto-optic device. Specific TeO2 crystal is grown in-house and is associated to a pure silica core fiber; as a result this system which is operating at 200 MHz, can accept power levels of up to 100 mW. The device could be installed into the forthcoming generation of quantum computers such as NQIT’s Q20:20 Quantum Computer Demonstrator.

ALPAO reviewed its deformable mirrors, wavefront sensor and adaptive optics systems to fit applications from cost effective to state-of-the-art products. 5 new deformable mirrors (DM) feature large stroke, high dynamic motion and optical quality for fast and accurate wavefront corrections. 3 new deformable mirrors (DMX) feature large pitch while maintaining the standard technology features. The large pupil area fits high power laser applications. 7 new Shack-Hartmann wavefront sensors (SH-WFS) are specifically designed for AO; sensitivity, speed and spectral range can be chosen depending on the application.
CT detector module

X-ray imaging solutions specialist Detection Technology launches X-Tile, a tileable CT (computed tomography) detector module. The 4-sides buttable detector module scales up from 32-slice volumetric CT system up to 256-slices, enabling 160-millimeter coverage at isocenter, and beyond. Performance is enabled by a pixelated, ultra-fast ceramic scintillator coupled on a high-performance backside illuminated (BSI) photodiode. The scintillator is made of high-light-output, ultrafast and medical grade GOS (gadolinium oxysulfide) compound.
