Lasers & Light Sources   July 2011 – Welcome to this issue of NewSpec eNews

It has been another busy couple of months at NewSpec, with Thomas and Gill attending training with Bruker in Singapore, and Graeme travelling to Laser Munich to attend training & meetings with Newport, as well as some of our other suppliers. Spectra Physics are celebrating their 50th birthday in 2011, so it was quite an honour (and a surprise to many) that NewSpec were able to send Spectra Physics their second largest scientific order in their history in May…..and yes, that is worldwide! See below for the YAG/Dye laser installs coming up. With over 15 major installs pending, things are not slowing down!
New from Newport GradBox
InSight™ DeepSee™ Ultrafast Laser System for Multiphoton Imaging
An extraordinary new ultrafast laser system that takes multiphoton imaging to new depths. Based on a novel proprietary technology, the InSight DeepSee delivers nearly double the tuning range (680-1300nm) of existing ultrafast lasers & provides seamless access to long infrared wavelengths for deepest in vivo imaging. Robust & fully automated, providing easy-to-use, hands-off operation, freeing users to focus on their research.

PeakForce TUNA Tunneling AFM module
A Quantitative Nanoscale Electrical Characterization module which enables high-res conductivity mapping on fragile samples, such as organic pv's, lithium ion cathodes, and carbon nanotube assemblies, eliminating sample damage and tip contamination. This exclusive technology utilises a innovative, high-bandwidth, low-noise current amplifier to provide access to the full fA to μA current range without changing the probe holder.

NPFlex LA – 3D Surface Metrology System
The NPFLEX-LA is the first comprehensive, non-contact metrology solution that repeatably quantifies true lead angle and surface texture on dynamic sealing surfaces. Finally, manufacturers of precision turned parts have a 21st century solution to measure Lead Angle instead of relying on the archaic "string method".

SuperK VARIA Tunable wavelength & bandwidth filter
The SuperK VARIA is a unique filtering solution which allows not only the tuning of wavelength, but also the variation of bandwidth of the filtered channel. In contrast to AOTF technology, the VARIA suffers no polarization loss and thus delivers high power throughput. For example, powers of over 50mW per wavelength across the full visible spectrum are easily achieved with the VARIA and the EXTREME EXW-12 using only a 10 nm bandwidth.
