Tunable Short-Pulse Laser

The Vitara laser from Coherent (Santa Clara, CA) delivers pulsewidths shorter than 12fs. The product offers automated wavelength tuning over a 755nm to 860nm range and pushbutton bandwidth adjustment from 30nm to 125nm. The output power of Vitara peaks at over 450mW due to its integrated Verdi G 5W pump laser.

CMOS Cameras

Baumer (Southington, CT) has introduced its HXC20NIR and HXC40NIR CMOS cameras, which measure electroluminescence in the near-infrared (NIR) light spectrum. Compared with monochrome technology, the cameras are twice as sensitive at a wavelength of 900 nanometers, using electroluminescence to effectively detect fractures and failures in the crystal structure of a solar wafer.
