Multi-focal Beam Shaping Optics for Multi-kW Lasers

Optics “quattroXX” for laser beam shaping by splitting laser energy and focusing in multiple focuses (patent pending design). The optics was developed for laser material processing techniques like welding, cladding, brazing based on multi-kW fiber lasers or fiber-coupled lasers.

Dichroic Fiber Collimators

Single-mode fiber collimators for combining the radiation from two fiber-coupled sources into a simple beam. These new dichroic fiber collimators extend the wide range of fiber collimators and laser beam couplers in the focal length range f ‘ 1.5 mm to 200 mm within the wavelength range of 360 nm to 2100 nm.

Flexible VisIR/VisUV Laser Platform

Two new high-powered modules “VisUV-280-560” and “VisUV-295-590” with dual wavelengths output round for the VisIR/VisUV laser platform.

High Throughput Event Timer

Easy-to-use bench-top event timer “MultiHarp 150” featuring 4 or 8 independent detection channels. By combining very high data throughput with outstanding picosecond timing precision and ultra short dead times, it is the ideal device for any application requiring high precision photon counting and time tagging using multiple detectors. It is well suited, e. g., for performing fluorescence lifetime imaging at high frame rates when using multiple detectors.

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.

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.
