Miniature Thermal Imager

MIRICLE® MicroCAM™ from Thermoteknix Systems (Cambridge, UK) is a miniature thermal imager designed for portable battery operated night vision applications. The unit draws less than 0.6 watts while delivering a full 384 × 288, 60Hz composite video signal. MIRICLE MicroCAM employs patented shutterless, Thermoteknix XTi Technology ® that removes the need for an electro-mechanical shutter assembly or reliance on external lens cap to perform Non Uniformity Correction (NUC). Excluding lens, the MIRICLE MicroCAM weighs just 26g.

Submillimeter Optical Lenses

Bern Optics, Inc. (Westfield, MA) has announced the availability of submillimeter optical lenses as small as 0.20 mm. These precision lenses can be ground and polished in a variety of difficult configurations, including plano convex, plano concave, bi-concave, bi-convex, as well as positive and negative meniscus. Created from optical and filter glasses, these microscopic elements — some as small as a grain of salt — can be produced with spherical and cylindrical radii with submillimeter curvatures and diameters. Bern Optics can also cement doublets (achromats) and triplets, furnishing exceptionally accurate alignment. The centration of each element is verified before and after cementing. Custom designed anti-reflection coatings can also be provided on all lenses.

Picosecond MOPA Laser

Genia Photonics (Lasalle, Quebec, Canada) is now offering a family of high-performance, fiber-based MOPA (Master Oscillator Power Amplifier) lasers that deliver short, high-frequency pulses in the picosecond regime. The MOPA's output power, pulse frequency, pulse duration, and pulse energy are all user configurable during operation, but customers must specify the range for these parameters at time of order. Output maximum average power options include 100mW, 1W, 5W, 10W, 20W, and 30W; pulse width options can be either a fixed value from 20psec through 500psec or a variable range of either 20-40, 40-150, and 150-500 psec; and pulse repetition rate ranges can be selectable from within the 100 kHz to 200 MHz range. Operating wavelength can be set anywhere in the range of 1030nm to 1080nm or 1530nm to 1565nm with other wavelengths available on request.

Sole Laser Light Engines

The new series of sole light engines from Omicron (Rodgau, Germany) are available in up to three wavelengths or up to six wavelengths, in the range of 375nm to 830nm, and an optical output power of up to 150mW at each wavelength. The light sources are diode lasers and DPSS lasers whose beams are efficiently combined and coupled into one or two single-mode fibers. High-speed analogue and digital modulation, as well as fast switching between all individual laser lines, is accomplished via direct electronic control. Users can choose from more than 20 available wavelengths including popular wavelengths such as 405nm, 488nm, 561nm or 642nm, as well as more exotic ones such as 375nm, 442nm, 594nm or 730nm.

Fiber-Coupled 405nm Laser Diodes

Laser Components (Hudson, NH) has recently added the K41 and CS405 series to their range of fiber-coupled high-power laser diodes. At a wavelength of 405nm, the components emit an optical output power of 20mW to 100mW. Optimal optical and electronic performance is achieved through the unique alignment of the 3μm to 60μm fibers. If desired, the fiber end may be equipped with an FC, ST, or SMA optical connector. The K41 series emits up to 100mW from a 60μm multimode fiber with a numerical aperture of 0.22 and up to 30mW from a 3μm single-mode fiber with an NA of 0.12. The CS405 series achieves an even better coupling efficiency, emitting 60mW from a 4.5μm fiber with an NA of 0.06.

Night Vision Sensor

The new NSC0905 sensor from New Imaging Technologies (Evry, France) is specially designed for high-performance intensified night vision applications. The NSC0905 sensor has a pixel pitch of 10.6um with 1280×1024 effective pixels and matches perfectly to an 18mm standard image intensifier tube output. Its high fill-factor (> 70%) and the possibility of taper-less 1:1 coupling to a 18mm IL tube improve the performance of night vision cameras. The NSC0905 can be scanned at 75Mhz with 3 scanning modes: High Definition (HD), binning and zoom. The maximum frame rate is 50Hz at HD mode and more than 150Hz at binning and zoom modes.

XUV Wavelength Calibration Source

McPherson’s (Chelmsford, MA) Model 642-1 calibration light source for extreme ultraviolet (EUV) and soft x-ray (XUV) features a six-position anode carousel to exchange target materials. It permits selecting various emission wavelengths without breaking vacuum. Dual symmetrical output beams provide sample/reference comparison and device calibration in various test set-ups. The Model 642-1 is a Manson type electron impact light source, and uses a hot filament to produce electrons subsequently accelerated towards a solid anode target by high voltage. The EUV and XUV output emission spectrum follows the target anode material valence band structure. Users can readily exchange anodes in the carousel in order to produce desired wavelengths, for example Ti (0.27nm), Si (0.71nm), Mg (0.98nm) and more.
