Interferogram Analysis Software

IntelliWave 5.0 interferometry analysis software from Engineering Synthesis Design (Tucson, AZ) features a new scientific programming language. The automation/client server architecture allows bidirectional communication and data transfer between other programs for industrial systems automation. Wizards provide factory floor quality control measurements of flats, lenses, mirrors, prisms, and corner cubes. A graphics engine enables users to create and present reports. IntelliWave 5.0 can be used with virtually any interferometer.

Excimer Laser

Coherent (Santa Clara, CA) has introduced the LAMBDA SX 315C excimer laser designed for low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) crystallization used in the manufacture of flat-panel displays (FPD). The laser features pulse energy of up to 1,050 mJ and pulse stability of 0.5%. It offers an average power of 315W stabilized, and is suitable for micromachining and packaging applications in microelectronics, such as laser direct patterning of flex circuits and laser lift-off. The LAMBDA SX 315C provides the ability to reach mobility levels to minimize threshold voltage variations of thin-film transistors, enabling active-matrix organic light-emitting displays. The laser’s proprietary PowerLokTM and TimeLokTM technologies provide laser stability.

Handheld Photometer

Designed for measuring area illumination, projector output, screen brightness, architecture lighting, room lighting, and color uniformity, Photo Research (Chatsworth, CA) has developed the PR-524 LiteMate illuminance handheld photometer system. The PR-524 features a cosine corrected receptor and measures illuminance. The optional PR-522 SpotMate, featuring true Pritchard spot optics, can be added to make luminance measurements. The Pritchard optics-based PR-522 is being offered as an accessory for measuring the luminance of LCDs, PDPs, and projection screen displays. The PR-525 ColorMate is a multi-detector colorimeter that makes near-real-time color measurements. Measured values include illuminance, CIE chromaticity, and correlated color temperature. Both instruments feature a touchscreen display, USB, and a multimedia card slot. Other accessories include a fiber probe and micro-reader probe.

Color Dome

The ESD-380DR high-speed color dome from ELMO USA Corp. (Plainview, NY) provides 360° continuous pan rotation at a travel speed from 5° to 400°/second. It operates from presets with 180° auto turnaround. The ESD-380DR features tilt travel from -10° to 190°, and 256 programmable preset pinpoint target areas. Pan and tilt speed automatically adjust in proportion to the depth of zoom. The color dome includes an IP66-rated weather-resistant outdoor housing, and a day/night model that captures image details in glaring sunshine or darkness. Minimum illumination is 0.01lux. CCD color cameras with DSP circuitry provide resolution of 470 TVL images, and feature 23× optical zoom with 12× programmable zoom. A 24-position privacy zone-masking protects against intrusive monitoring. Other features include digital flip, auto/manual focus, auto iris, auto/manual white balance, auto/manual focus, backlight compensation, eight programmable alarm inputs, and an OSD display for setup.

Laser Ultrasonic Receiver

Lasson Technologies (Culver City, CA) has released the AIR-1550-TWM laser ultrasonic receiver for component inspection and nondestructive evaluation of material properties. Part of the AIR family of receivers, the AIR-1550-TWM operates at a wavelength of 1,550 nm. AIR receivers are based on a common platform with a modular design, offer fiber coupling to a selection of sensor heads, and use a chassis designed for benchtop use or compatibility with the standard 19" rack-mount systems. Common measurement applications include material thickness, weld inspection and dimensioning, inspection of electronic packages, and general defect location and characterization.

Laser Doppler Vibrometer

MetroLaser (Irvine, CA) has announced the VibroMet 500V single-beam laser Doppler vibrometer that features a sensitivity range of 2 microns/sec, and a vibration velocity measurement range of 1 meter/sec. The laser is collimated, so there is no need to adjust a focusing lens. Its solid-state laser diode ensures the system receives signals at distances of up to 5 meters. The system has a visible red laser beam for point and measure operation. The VibroMet 500V is suitable for quality assurance, product optimization, and other applications that require measuring vibration without touching the object being measured. Common measurement applications include turbine blades for aircraft and power generators, automobile engines, body parts and mufflers, computer disk drives and storage devices, and optical and laser systems.
