LED Backlighting

CI Lumen Industries (Hauppauge, NY) has introduced a light-emitting-diode (LED) backlighting solution for display panels. The technology, applicable for military or industrial end-uses, conserves power, features heat-relevant elevated brightness levels, and may be applied to LCD panels produced by other manufacturers. Developed for hi-bright panels requiring brightness levels of 800 nits or more, the technology can be utilized on LEDs ranging from 5 to 19", and hibrighted to 800 to 1,300 nits.

Diode Laser

Point Source (Hamble, UK) offers a 20-mW blue diode laser with a TEM00 true Gaussian beam, a higher power version of their range of iFLEX2000TM fiber-coupled lasers. The laser beam conditioning is performed using a single mode fiber, reducing beam astigmatism and spatial noise. The device employs a forward closed loop power control that resists optical feedback. Short-term amplitude noise is reduced and the stability of output is augmented. Applications include biomedical fluorescence imaging and optical media.

Raman Spectrometer

The SE1000 Raman spectrometer from Mesophotonics (Southampton, UK) allows users to perform non-invasive, non-destructive analysis of materials with no sample preparation. The technique reports information on the molecular structure, identifying the material under scrutiny. It performs Surface-Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) analysis on low concentrations of material by deposition onto the company's Klarite® SERS substrates.

CCD Cameras

Lumenera Corp. (Ottawa, Canada) released the Lm family of mini-CCD USB 2.0 cameras for industrial markets. The Lm075, Lm135, and Lm165 function in low light conditions and where space is restricted. The cameras measure 44 × 44 × 56 mm, have fast frame at VGA through megapixel resolution, and include industrial locking USB and GPI/O connectors, eight mounting points, electronic global shutter (for high speed objects), and on-board processing and sensitivity for image quality. Higher frame rates are available at lower resolution, with full sub-window control and live focusing models.

Pulsed Solid-State Laser

The TruPulse laser from TRUMPF (Farmington, CT) is a pulsed solid-state laser that allows the average power to be briefly exceeded and increases the pulse frequency. The product range is based on a modular supply structure, and the average power ranges from 20 to 150 watts at a maximum pulse power of up to 10 kilowatts. Within this range, beam qualities of 4 to 25 mm•mrad are possible.
