Lasers & Light Sources
  May 2012 - Welcome to this edition of our eNews

Once again it has been a busy time for NewSpec, so much so that we have added another staff member, with Andrew Gibson-White joining us late in April. Andrew previously worked at Lastek as a service engineer for seven years, so comes to us with a wealth of experience in most aspects of the laser game that we are involved in.

Andrew will be working in a sales/service role, and will start coordinating some of our service activities from the Adelaide office. So, if you have a service issue that we need to attend to, please start with a call to Andrew.

Andrew will take a little while to get back into the swing of things as he joined us straight from his honeymoon, so we would also extend our congratulations to Andrew and Sonia on their recent marriage, welcome them (to the second new set of in-laws), and wish them all the best for the future.
New from Newport GradBox
Spectra-Physics Millennia Core 25W CW 532nm DPSS Lasers
The new Millennia® Core™ extends the successful product family of CW DPSS green lasers to unprecedented power levels. Delivering up to 25 W of CW power at 532 nm, ultra low optical noise, TEM00 beam quality and best-in-class power stability. The new platform is based on Spectra-Physics "It's in the Box™" design, where the laser optical cavity, diode and control electronics are all integrated in a single, compact package, eliminating the external power supply.

Newport 6-axis Hexapod, 10kg Load Capacity
The HXP50-MECA 6-Axis Hexapod is a parallel kinematic motion device that provides six degrees of freedom: X, Y, Z, pitch, roll, and yaw. The HXP50 offers a 10 kg centered load capacity and is a cost-effective solution to complex motion applications that demand repeatability and accuracy in up to six independent axes. Contrary to the image of being complex and highly priced, the HXP50 hexapod is not only affordable but extremely easy to use.

Velocity lasers from New Focus
Introducing the world's most advanced tunable diode laser system. The Velocity offers complete single mode tuning across its entire output spectrum with no mode hops and closed loop wavelength position control.
The integrated wavelength monitoring system allows the user to dial up a wavelength with 0.01 nm accuracy and scan across all or part of the tuning range. We've enlarged the drop tested and shock proof cavity housing, added more powerful temperature control, and introduced our unique Starflex™ Magnetic Dampening to the 6700 Velocity™. This means we can now bring you higher power output but with an even further reduced linewidth. That's more power with even greater precision.

Dimension FastScan AFM
Bruker's new Dimension FastScan AFM achieves atomic resolution imaging of Calcite in fluid. The AFM image shows the regular order of Oxygen atoms in calcite dissolution crystal planes. The image was captured on a Dimension FastScan using Bruker's unique Peak Force Tapping mode in liquid. The image clearly shows the Oxygen atoms in the different planes of calcite which slowly dissolve in the fluid. Bruker's new FastScan AFM has now proved itself to be the fastest and highest resolution AFM on any sample in air or in fluid. Congratulations to Flinders University for purchasing the first FastScan system in Australia….purchased the display system off the NewSpec booth at the recent ICONN conference in Perth

Benchtop Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM)
The LVEM5 Low Voltage electron microscope, built on a revolutionary technology platform that combines advanced imaging with unparalleled benchtop convenience. LVEM5 is the smallest multi-mode desktop electron microscope on the market today. No heavy metal staining is required with the LVEM which is a perennial challenge for higher voltage EMs.

SoftClean Chamber
The Evactron SoftClean Chamber allows specimens, specimen mounts and samples to be pre-cleaned before they are placed into a high purity vacuum chamber. The Evactron plasma cleaning process removes hydrocarbons from specimen surfaces by chemical etch, which preserves critical sample fine structure. This etching process breaks down problematic hydrocarbon residues into smaller molecules such as CO2, H2O and CO, which are easily pumped out of the chamber.
