Booth 237: Product Of The Month

altLabsphere (North Sutton, NH) offers the Solar Spectrum Uniform Source system for use in applications requiring the replication of sunlight and daylight conditions. The system duplicates the spectral shape of solar radiation with xenon and tungsten halogen sources and an integrating sphere. It can approximate the spectral radiance of a 100% albedo source, or the spectral curve of the ASTM Standard D65. With a radiance uniformity of over 98%, the Solar Spectrum Uniform Source also approximates near blackbody spectrums with color temperature ranges from 3000 K to 6000 K. The system includes a photopic detector for luminance monitoring; a high-dynamic range, low-noise CCD-based spectrometer to monitor spectral irradiance from 350 nm to 1050 nm; and spectrometer and uniform source control software.

Booth 220: Stabilized Laser

altB&W Tek (Newark, DE) introduces the USB Raman excitation laser series, based on spectrum stabilization technologies. The USB CleanlazeTM series comes in OEM and end-user packages, featuring narrow linewidth, 0.02 or 0.20 nm FWHM, and from 25 mW to over 1W at 785 nm. The USB version allows for digitally dialing to an output power level to suit specific sampling needs. The on/off digital laser control makes it convenient for background subtraction in Raman applications. Free space and fiber coupled versions are available.

Booth 826 & 827: Photodiode Detector

altThe S10362-11 series MPPC (multi-pixel photon counter) from Hamamatsu Corporation (Bridgewater, NJ) is an advanced Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode detector that can detect light at ultra-low levels. The S10362-11 series is ideal for positron emission tomography, high-energy physics, DNA sequencing, fluorescence measurement, and environmental analysis. The detectors have an active area of 1 mm × 1 mm and are available in three pixel counts (100, 400, or 1600 pixels). Typical gain values range from 2.75 x 105 to 2.4 x 106. The S10362-11 series features high photon detection efficiency and peak sensitivity at 400 nm. They are insensitive to magnetic fields and can be operated at a low voltage of less than 90 V.
