DUV Dynamic Interferometer

The FizCam DUV interferometer from 4D Technology (Tucson, AZ) provides accurate measurement of optics and optical systems at 193 nm wavelength (deep ultra-violet), even in the presence of vibration and air turbulence. The FizCam DUV incorporates a single camera, high-speed optical phase sensor that measures in less than 5 milliseconds. Motorized controls include 2X discrete optical zoom, focus, polarization, input beam alignment, transmission flat tip/tilt, and optional return flat tip/tilt. FizCam DUV components are stainless/electroless nickel-plated.

Thin Film Measurement Instrument

The Craic Technologies QDI 2010 FilmTM is available from Elliot Scientific (Hertfordshire, UK). The QDI 2010 Film is a specialized instrument developed from the existing QDI 2010 UV-VIS-NIR microspectrophotometer, combining UV microscopy and microspectroscopy into one tool. The QDI 2010 Film can measure the thickness of thin films covering sub-micron or larger sampling areas, by either transmission or reflectance in a rapid and non-destructive fashion. The instrument can analyze the film on both transparent and opaque substrates.

LED Color Correction Filters

Abrisa (Santa Paula, CA) has introduced color correction filters for energy-efficient LEDs. The durable LED filters are ideal for interior and architectural lighting design, and can be easily interchanged to achieve color variations, subtle diffusion, or to create a specific lighting atmosphere. The color correction filters are available in transparent or antireflective (AR) coatings, to maximize LED light output. Available in sizes ranging from micro-optics up to 27 inches in diameter, the filters operate between -60°C and +100°C.

Marking Laser

The TruMark 3010 marking laser from TRUMPF (Farmington, CT) is suitable for users who need to mark small batches or individual workpieces. The marking laser features user-friendliness, compact size, and low maintenance. Due to a convection-cooled laser head, the TruMark 3010 is a silent companion without creating unwanted air-flow close to the workpiece. Its NAVIGATOR software determines the optimal laser settings for marking, such as pulse frequency, pulse power, or scanner speed. The diode-pumped, solid-state laser has a wavelength of 1064 nm.

Organic Photovoltaic Technology

Cytec Industries (Woodland Park, NJ) and IMEC (Leuven, Belgium) have collaborated to develop a commercially viable technology for organic photovoltaic devices with enhanced stability and extended lifetime. The operational lifetime of organic solar cells must be improved to extend beyond 5 years. Intrinsic stability issues of organic solar cells will be addressed by stabilizing the nanomorphology of the active material blend. The ingress of extrinsic degradation sources of oxygen and water vapor will be suppressed by the development of an appropriate barrier, encapsulation technology.

Light Guide Foils

CoActive Technologies KDM (Newton, MA) has expanded its family of light guide foils to include devices with a thickness of less than 200μm. The light guide foils are designed to evenly distribute light from side-firing LEDs, providing bright, uniform illumination of keypads for handheld electronic devices. Backlight coloring can be software-controlled through the use of multiple sets of colored or RGB LEDs, while use of multiple light guide foils provides a zoned illumination effect. Light guide foils are constructed with poly-carbonate or TPU film materials. Typical luminance is >20Cd/m2 from two LEDs at 5mA/LED.

High-Speed Nanopositioner

The new Nano-LPQ piezo nanopositioner from Mad City Labs (Madison, WI) is the lowest profile high speed XYZ nanopositioner available and offers 75 × 75 × 50μm travel with picometer position noise under closed loop control. The Nano-LPQ features equal millisecond response times in XYZ, an integrated sample holder, analog and digital control with added scan synchronization features, and compatibility with LabViewTM and C++. It comes with Mad City Labs’ Nano-RouteTM 3D software.

Solar Panel Power Optimizer

SunMizerTM from Xandex Solar (Petaluma, CA) is a new per-panel DC-to-DC power optimizer that increases solar energy harvest by recovering power that is lost when shade falls on a panel. SunMizer can be installed selectively - only on the solar panels that experience regular shading or soiling.
