Rapid Automated Modular Microscope System

The Rapid Automated Modular Microscope (RAMM) system from Applied Scientific Instrumentation (Eugene, OR) offers a modular design with automated high-speed XY stages, precision piezo and motorized Z focusing, along with a range of scanning options. It is configurable with infinity-corrected optics, dichroic filter cubes, multi-wavelength excitation and emission filterwheels, shutters, and detectors, including cameras and photomultipliers. A wide range of features can be added, including auto-focus, focus stabilization, tracker, and robotic specimen loader. It is suitable for applications in high throughput screening, genetic sequencing, and experimental research. It is designed using high MTBF components to reduce cost.

Machine Vision Software

Cognex Corporation (Natick, MA) has introduced a new release of VisionPro®, its hardware-independent machine vision software. Vision- Pro 6.1 includes support for Microsoft® Windows 7 and offers line scan distortion correction that eliminates horizontal lens distortion and equalizes pixel width across the sensor. The software also makes calibrating line scan cameras easier by generating the required data using a set of lines from a still object. Analog and Camera Link frame grabbers are compatible with Windows 7 in VisionPro 6.1, and FireWire DCAM and GigE vision drivers have been updated for Windows 7 compatibility. VisionPro 6.1 also introduces ToolBlock, an enhancement to ToolGroup. It adds new features such as Drag & Drop Terminal, a graphical method for linking multiple vision tools, and Simple Script, which reduces the amount of scripting needed to set up complex applications.

Plug & Play Driver for Pulsed Laser Diodes

Laser Components (Hudson, NH) offers the LSP40 plug & play driver module, which can be used to accurately control pulsed laser diodes (PLDs). With two resistors, the user is able to regulate the operating current (and thus the laser power) and the pulse length. It requires an operating voltage of 12 VDC and an external trigger signal. The laser current can be set to any value up to 40A, and the pulse length can be set to between 30ns and 150ns. At a reduced current, pulse lengths up to 1μs are achievable.

Solar PV Encapsulant

DuPont (Wilmington, DE) has collaborated with Oerlikon Solar to produce the DuPont™ PV5223 thin white reflective solar PV encapsulant sheet. This thin 0.45-mm white reflective encapsulant eliminates the need for reflective paint typically used to reflect light back to the active layer. Designed for use with Oerlikon Solar's Micromorph® technology, the PV5223 increases light reflectivity by more than 50% versus paint, achieving 94% reflectivity, and delivers stronger adhesion than clear PVB sheet materials, which translates into longer-life modules.
