Large Format MWIR Lens

StingRay Optics (Keene, NH) introduces a 50mm, f/2.3 Midwave Infrared (MWIR) large format lens assembly. The 50mm lens offers flexibility as either a stand alone solution for large format detectors or in conjunction with the enhanced resolution features. The MWIR large format lens assembly offers diffraction limited performance over the entire field of view (FOV), enabling the microscan image enhancement feature to achieve the highest potential clarity.

Light Measurement System

Labsphere (North Sutton, NH) offers the HalfMoon Total Forward Spectral Flux Measurement System designed for manufacturers of LEDs, light fixtures, and displays. Available in standard 12, 20, and 40 inch diameters, the HalfMoon system provides an alternative to integrating sphere photometer and goniophotometer methods of measuring total forward spectral flux of forward emitting lamps, luminaires, and displays. The compact design creates a virtual integrating sphere by pairing an interior mirrored surface cap with half an orb coated with Labsphere’s highly reflective diffuse Spectraflect® material. The system saves space, minimizes absorption errors, and facilitates quick sample changes.

Optical Fibers and Cables

Fiberguide Industries (Stirling, NJ) offers single mode, multimode, graded index, tapered, and metal-coated optical fibers that are suitable for applications in the medical/biomedical and spectroscopy industries, as well as for use by industrial OEMs. The specialized optical cables utilize air gap technology to eliminate all energy absorbing materials at fiber end. The cantilevered fiber end can accept very high power levels that would normally destroy traditional fiber termination. A uniquely designed heat sink is thermally and mechanically connected to the assembly to effectively conduct generated heat away from fiber.

Optical Transmittance Spectrometer

For accurate, repeatable, real-time transmittance measurement of optical lenses and other optical components, Ocean Optics (Dunedin, FL) has introduced the Optical Transmittance Spectrometer (OTS). The compact system measures tint color, photopic transmittance, and UV cutoff of ophthalmic lenses, optical coatings, windows and filters. The OTS is built on a high-resolution miniature linear CCD-array spectrometer configured for the 380-780 nm wavelength range. The system accepts samples from 10-76 mm diameter and 15 mm thickness for use in lab applications where transmittance accuracy to ±1.0% and precision to ±0.1% are critical.

Laser Beam Shaping Module

StockerYale (Salem, NH) offers the Flat-Top Generator, a laser beam shaping module that converts a Gaussian beam into a focused, collimated, or diverging flat-top profile, using refractive beam shaping optics. The module can maintain a high degree of uniformity, power, and intensity over large distances. The Flat-Top Generator is compatible with lasers that emit at UV, visible and near-IR wavelengths. The module can be easily integrated with StockerYale’s LasirisTM lasers, as well as other laser types, both standard and fiber-coupled.
