UV-VIS Micro-Spectrometer

Hamamatsu Corporation (Bridgewater, NJ) has announced the release of the C12666MA microspectrometer, a UV-VIS spectrometer about the size of a fingertip. Its miniature components, fabricated using MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) technology, allow it to be a fraction of the size of traditional spectrometers. In addition, its hermetically sealed package makes it usable in high-humidity environments that traditional spectrometers do not tolerate well.

UV-Visible-NIR Polarization Spectroscopy

CRAIC Technologies (San Dimas, CA) recently announced the addition of UV-visible-NIR polarization spectroscopy capabilities to CRAIC microspectrophotometers. This feature is offered as a package that allows the user to measure polarization spectra in either transmission or reflectance modes. With the ability to measure polarization microspectra™ in the ultraviolet, visible and near infrared regions, the UV-visible- NIR polarization package represents a powerful new tool for both materials science and biological research.

Circular Variable ND Filters

Reynard Corporation (San Clemente, CA) recently announced the complete customization of their Circular Variable Neutral Density (CVND) Filters. This technology is best used in high quality optical systems to change the intensity of light from 100% to less than 0.1%. As the filter rotates, the beam intensity is customized due to the density variation of a gradient metallic coating around the filter. Used from the UV to the far infrared, density neutrality can be achieved for narrow band applications, such as lasers, to wide band applications, such as the spectrum of white light.

Laser Radiation Detector Screens

The path of invisible laser radiation can be verified using detector cards from Laser Components (Hudson, NH). These cards are ready for immediate application and do not have to be activated or optically charged. The cards for wavelengths from 1.5m to 5m and 5m to 20m can localize the beam path of Hol:YAG, Er:YAG, and CO2 lasers, for example.

Deep UV Luminescence Spectrophotometer

McPherson (Chelmsford, MA) has announced a new vacuum ultraviolet universal spectrophotometer, an optical test system optimized for emitting samples like phosphors or photo- and electro-luminescent crystals. It can measure reflectance, transmission and fluorescence emission over its complete working range, 120 nanometers to 2.2 microns. The sample chamber includes high efficiency toroidal optics for focused excitation and sensitive detection. It can operate purged or under vacuum and can interface to commercial cryogenic and heated sample mounts.
