New inverted confocal Raman microscope

Inverted Raman microscope“alpha300 Ri”, that combines the advantages of data acquisition from below with the established merits of 3D confocal Raman imaging. Raman Imaging is a powerful and versatile technique that can chemically characterize samples nondestructively and without labeling or other specialized preparation. The speed, sensitivity and resolution of the “alpha300” series are now available from a new angle. The new setup is directed in particular to research applications in the fields of life sciences, biomedicine and pharmaceutics.

Picosecond Laser Diode Driver

Picosecond driver “Taiko” for laser heads from the new “LDH-I” series to read out and control various operational parameters, including central and current emission wavelength, laser head temperature, repetition rate, as well as an estimation of current output intensity.

FIB-SEM for Nanofabrication

Focused Ion Beam-SEM “Velion” for FIB-centric nanofabrication, the world’s only FIB-SEM which truly defines FIB as the priority technique. The system and its fascinating application range will be presented at the EIPBN in Puerto Rico (May 29 to June 1).

Vacuum Solutions for the LHC

The German company Pfeiffer Vacuum has received yet another major order for turbopumps and turbo pumping stations from CERN. CERN is situated in Geneva on the Franco-Swiss border and is the largest center for particle physics research in the world. It runs the Large Hadron Collider (LHC); with a circumference of some 27 kilometers, it is the world’s largest particle accelerator which is used for colliding proton and ion beams at nearly the speed of light.

Combined Spectroscopy and Microscopy for Materials Science

Newly released fiber coupling sample holder. With this device, the modular, time-resolved and steady state spectrometer “FluoTime 300” can be combined with a microscope such as the “MicroTime 100”. These kind of set-up allows users to easily record time-, space-,0 and spectrally resolved luminescence spectra from any sample mounted in the microscope.

Efficient LED for Train Headlights

New design combines two half-circular parabolic aluminized reflectors with high-efficiency LEDs

Fully Automatic Goniometer

Fully automatic goniometer “GONIOMAT APLUS” for testing angles of optical prisms, polygon mirrors and wedges with an accuracy of 0.4 arcseconds. Furthermore it can be used for testing angles of angle gauge blocks. The device is ideal for use in testing laboratories and inspection of incoming and outgoing optical parts as well as for small, medium or large volume production.

200 MHz Variable Gain Photoreceiver

High-speed photoreceiver “OE-300” with variable transimpedance gain from 102 to 108 V/A for an exceptionally wide application range. Various models equipped with InGaAs or Si photodiodes cover the 320 to 1,700 nm wavelength range.

Compact CW Laser with 10 mW Output Power at 266 nm

New continuous wave “FQCW266-C” DUV laser emitting 10 mW output power at a wavelength of 266 nm. Based on the proven and patented design of a diode pumped, frequency quadrupled Nd:YVO4 resonator, a new compact model was developed. The size and production cost of the new model were optimized to allow simple integration in OEM systems.

Pfeiffer Vacuum developed vacuum solutions for European XFEL

The European X-Ray Free-Electron Laser (European XFEL) in Hamburg generates ultrashort X-ray flashes – 27,000 times per second and with a brilliance that is a billion times higher than that of the best conventional X-ray radiation sources. The flashes are produced in underground tunnels and will allow scientists to map atomic details of viruses, film chemical reactions, and study the processes in the interior of planets.
