Solution Science for Research and Industry

November Edition: New Products ♦ Videos ♦ Winners ♦ Events CRAIC have added to their range of UV-Vis-NIR Microspectrophotometers with the QDI 2010 PV, designed to measure transmission and reflectance of photovoltaic cells of various types, be they traditional crystalline silicon, thin film or components thereof. Even protective glass and concentrator modules can be analyzed. The QDI 2010 PV enables determination of thin film thickness in microscopic sampling areas on both transparent and opaque substrates. It also has a host of other functions and, in combination with CRAIC Technologies proprietary contamination imaging capabilities, it can locate and identify process contaminants. For more information, please visit our CRAIC product section, or contact our Detection & Instrumentation sales team.

ELLIOT SCIENTIFIC is now taking advanced orders for a compact CW DPSS (Diode Pumped Solid State) laser that outputs in the UV at a wavelength of 266 nm. The VERVE, from KLASTECH, was recently demonstrated by Elliot Scientific at October's Photonex '09 Exhibition in Stoneleigh, near Coventry. Initially available with powers of up to 100 mW, the new laser features a unique miniaturised double cavity and nitrogen sealed UV optics. Its continuous wave operation opens up many exciting avenues for researchers, such as in UV spectroscopy, or for industrial applications like semiconductor inspection. For more information, please visit our KLASTECH product section, or contact our Laser sales team.

Oxford Lasers have joined with Elliot Scientific to promote the Alpha table-top Laser Micromachining System. Cutting, milling and drilling operations are carried out by sophisticated yet easy to use software on metals, ceramics or polymers within a compact Class 1 enclosure. Alpha is suitable for R&D applications and for low volume production runs of small parts. It has been designed to aid process development, small-scale production and sample preparation within university labs or prototype shops.

ElliotScientific is the name of our new channel on video hosting website YouTube. This medium allows you to view informative videos from a variety of sources without worrying about incompatibilities between codecs, browsers and operating systems. Our first two are up and running, so you can view our Photonex 09 Show video or our most recent demonstration of the amazing laser tweezer capabilities of one of our optical trapping systems.
