Five-Watt LED G9 Lamp

MaxLite (West Caldwell, NJ) has introduced an energy-efficient replacement for 40-watt halogen T4 G9-based lamps. The five-watt LED retrofits easily into existing G9 sockets in decorative glass pendants, chandeliers and bath bars. Available in dimmable and non-dimmable versions, the lamp delivers up to 450 lumens with a 300-degree beam angle for uniform light distribution. With a 2.4-inch maximum overall length and 1.6-inch heat sink diameter, MaxLite’s five-watt lamp is TUV safety listed and may be used in non-enclosed luminares in dry locations. www.maxlite.com/products/led-g9-retrofit-lamps

LED Lights with Symbol Marking

Wilbrecht LEDCO (St. Paul, MN) has added symbol/legend marking options to its 100/600 series of panel LEDs for custom applications. Custom and universal symbols, such as battery light or oil level, can be used for easy identification. A simple stamp printing process allows a pictogram or short word to be printed in white or black ink on blue, green, amber, red and clear lenses. The LEDs can be selected in 3 intensities- High Efficiency, Daylight readable super bright, and super ultra-bright. Available in prototype to production quantities, the led indicators are built with standard DC LEDs or bipolar LEDs for AC applications. By adding a simple resistor, they can be operated at 5-60VDC or up to 240VAC. www.wilbrechtledco.com/

Scientists Unlock Secret of Ultrafast Imaging of Complex Systems in 3-D at Near Atomic Resolution

It is becoming possible to image complex systems in 3-D with near-atomic resolution on ultrafast timescales using extremely intense X-ray free-electron laser (XFEL) pulses. One important step toward ultrafast imaging of samples with a single X-ray shot is understanding the interaction of extremely brilliant and intense X-ray pulses with the sample, including ionization rates.

Laser-Generated Surface Structures Create Extremely Water-Repellent Metals

Scientists at the University of Rochester have used lasers to transform metals into extremely water repellent, or super-hydrophobic, materials without the need for temporary coatings. Super-hydrophobic materials are desirable for a number of applications such as rust prevention, anti-icing, or even in sanitation uses. However, as Rochester’s Chunlei Guo explains, most current hydrophobic materials rely on chemical coatings.

Thermal Imaging Camera

The FLIR Systems (Meer, Belgium) A6700sc features a highly sensitive 640x512 pixel resolution Indium Antimonide (InSb) detector that produces temperature- calibrated IR imagery for research and science applications. A6700sc cameras have been designed to stream temperature-calibrated data over Gigabit Ethernet to a PC for live image viewing and recording. Using FLIR’s ResearchIR software, researchers and scientists can monitor, acquire, analyze, and share data. In addition, extender rings for zoomed-in fields of view make the camera perfect for imaging small thermal targets, and close-up lenses can detect spot sizes down to 15um per pixel. www.FLIR.com

NIR Single Photon Counting OEM Module

AUREA Technology (Besancon, France) has launched its newly designed fast Near Infrared (NIR) [900 nm-1700 nm] Single Photon Counting OEM Module, SPD_NIR_OEM_120MHz. Due to its Geiger-mode InGaAs avalanche photodiode SPAD and its new enhanced embedded electronics, it provides gated-mode operation up to 120 MHz trigger rate with very fast timing resolution < 150 psec. The SPD_NIR_OEM_120MHz performs very-low-noise DCR www.aureatechnology.com

Pyroelectric Detectors

LASER COMPONENTS Pyro Group (Olching, Germany) produces pyroelectric DLaTGS detectors - three series are available: One for users who would like to combine their detectors with their own electronics (LCDT-5000 series); the LCTDT-5100 series is designed for low-fre¬quency applications in the range of 10-100 Hz, and the LCDT-5500 type with a low-noise JFET is designed for FTIR applications. All detectors possess thinned-out ele¬ments and optionally feature an absorbing black coating with a low thermal mass that offers a wide spectral response at a simultaneously high speed. All pyrodetectors are available with different diameters of their active surfaces and rectangular and square shapes as well. Standard housings include TO-5, TO-66, and TO-37. www.lasercomponents.com/de-en/ir-components/ir-detectors/pyroelectric-sensors/
