Near-Infrared Photodetectors

The Siletz series of carrier multiplication devices (CMDs) from Voxtel (Beaverton, OR) are nanostructured InGaAs/ InAlAs devices that are designed to overcome the limitations of avalanche photodiodes (APDs) in the 0.9 to 1.6 micron spectral region, including the eye-safe range beyond 1.3 microns. Featuring ultra-low-noise analog optical detection up to approximately 1 GHz, and high quantum efficiency, the photodetectors are ideal for low-light-level detection.

Eye-Safe Laser Illuminator

The Prolight-G from Snake Creek Lasers (Hallstead, PA) is a rugged, eye-safe laser illuminator that features a continuously-variable cone-angle setting to accommodate short-distance illumination tasks. Highly durable and water-resistant, the Prolight-G is constructed of machined and anodized aluminum. The Prolight-G comes with push-button tail-cap switch, lanyard, and one CR-123 lithium battery. Compared to white-light sources, the monochromatic nature of the Prolight-G also enables higher-resolution imaging.

Supercontinuum Fiber Laser

Fianium (Southampton, UK) has developed a supercontinuum (SC) fiber laser based on its proprietary high-performance photonic crystal fiber (PCF) design. SC lasers, based on the PCF design, offer true white spectrum covering the entire 390nm-2400nm band. They also deliver greater power in the visible 400nm - 700nm part of the spectrum, compared to lasers based on conventional PCF, enabling wavelength tunability with enhanced spectral brightness. The performance of the SC lasers does not degrade over time.

Imaging Spectrometer

The Pika NIR from Resonon (Bozeman, MT) is a cost-effective, line-scan imaging spectrometer for the 900nm - 1,700nm spectral range. The system includes an embedded InGaAs camera, interchangeable c-mount objective lens, and the company’s SpectrononPro data acquisition software for plug-and-play operation. Rotational or linear desktop scanning stages are offered as options that integrate seamlessly with the data acquisition software. The Pika NIR has a compact size of 4 × 9 × 3 inches and weighs just 3.25 lbs.

Variable Angle Tilt Stage

PROMET International (Shoreview, MN) has introduced the FiBO® Variable Angle Tilt Stage (VATS) with Bare Fiber (BF) Adapter for efficient bare fiber endface geometry testing. When used with the FiBO® 300 Interferometer, the VATS quickly verifies the nominal cleave angle of bare fiber. Reports are generated with a single click. The VATS has a high-precision kinematic interface, quick-release mechanism, and an easy-to-read Vernier degree scale.

Clear Aperture Beam Collimator

Optical Surfaces (Surrey, UK) has released a 235mm clear aperture beam collimator that can precisely measure the quality of the company’s imaging systems from the visible to the IR, using Modulation Transfer Function (MTF) criteria. The 235mm clear aperture beam collimator has an output wavefront error better than lambda/5 p-v, and an off-axis optical design that produces no central obscuration and delivers highly efficient transmission.
