Display Production Test Sequencer

Radiant Imaging (Duvall, WA) introduces the Production Test Sequencer 3.0 (PM-PTS) for production line testing and calibration of displays, including LCD, plasma, and front and rear projection systems. PM-PTS 3.0 is designed for use in production environments to allow automated, objective display performance measurements against user defined quality objectives, increasing testing speed and reducing variation. PM-PTS 3.0 provides users with the ability to set up and automate test sequences from an extensive menu of available tests. The complete PM-PTS 3.0 system consists of a Radiant Imaging PM-1400 Series Imaging Colorimeter for accurate data capture, ProMetric 9.1 software for measurement control and image analysis, and PM-PTS 3.0 for automating test sequences.

Radhard Fiber Optic Cable

Linden Photonics (Westford, MA) has developed the Strong Tether Fiber Optic Cable (STFOC), a 0.030"diameter cable with a tensile strength in excess of 50 lbs. STFOC is radhard, impervious to moisture and oxygen, chemically stable, and capable of operating at up to 250°C. Custom versions are designed to work over 300°C. Linden has also developed “STFOC Non-Kink” which is virtually unkinkable. This fiber optic cable combines all features of the standard STFOC, while adding a protective secondary non-kinking layer.

Galvanometer Mirrors

Reynard Corporation (San Clemente, CA) has released high precision coatings Galvanometer mirrors for laser system applications such as scanners, bar code readers, sweeping remote sensors, marking systems, and laser light shows. A mirror is modulated on its centered axis, causing a static laser beam to scan in a one-dimensional orientation. Adding a second Galvo mirror allows for scanning in two dimensions. The Galvo mirror coatings can achieve reflectivity of greater than 99.9% and are able to withstand the most rigid durability requirements per military specifications, including temperature/humidity and salt fog requirements per MIL-C-48497A.

Optical Edge Filters

Semrock (Rochester, NY) has introduced optical edge filters for Raman spectroscopy and fluorescence imaging. The EdgeBasicTM long-wave-pass filters are hard-coated optical filters that have high transmission of 98% typically, and laser-line blocking with an optical density greater than 6. The filters have an edge steepness that is tailored for cost-sensitive, application-specific Raman systems that do not require measurement of the smallest possible Raman shifts, as well as for sensitive fluorescence imaging systems that demand maximum signal capture.
