The use of pyroelectric detectors for non-contact temperature

The use of pyroelectric detectors for non-contact temperature
Every object emits heat in the form electromagnetic waves and sampling the energy radiated into space allows the measurement of the temperature of the object without ever having to touch it. The wavelength of the light emitted by the object depends on its temperature, with hotter objects generating light at shorter wavelengths. Thermal detectors have the widest wavelength response with the limiting factor being the transmission window used to protect the sensing element.

RTI NEO ONE laser systems presented at Prolight + Sound 2018

RTI NEO ONE laser systems presented at Prolight + Sound 2018
The RTI NEO ONE modular laser systems for professional applications and lighting designers were first published at Prolight + Sound. They were also featured on the PRG Stage in their Highlight show. The DMX / ArtNET control makes the RTI NEO ONE compatible to existing control infrastructure, no other control system is required. The RTI NEO ONE is designed as a multi-projector-laser-system: Several units can be attached to each other with a quick-lock system.

Laser diodes for material processing & laser cutting applications

Laser diodes for material processing & laser cutting applications
The low noise LD15CHA, the newest addition to the Wavelength laser diode driver line, offers modulation bandwidth, and power for materials processing, industrial laser cutting, and laser diode bars / stacks. The small laser diode driver delivers 15A output current up to 28V. It meets laser compliance requirements from 3V with a single 5V supply, and up to 28V with an additional 30V power supply.

FLEXPOINT laser module for industrial facilities

FLEXPOINT laser module for industrial facilities
Thanks to its M18 thread, the FLEXPOINT MV18 line laser module can be integrated into standardised systems. LASER COMPONENTS has introduced this product at the Vision Show 2018 in Boston, Massachusetts. It is designed to deliver homogeneous power distribution along the entire projected line – a requirement for its use in machine vision. The module is available in an extensive range of wavelengths ­between 405nm and 850nm.

Laser optics help keep fruit and vegetables fresh

Laser optics help keep fruit and vegetables fresh
Diffractive Optical Elements (DOEs) allow laser beams to be split, bundled, or formed into almost any shape and are used in multiple applications. The food industry, for instance, uses them for laser perforation, when it comes to applying micro holes into packaging for fruit or vegetables. These allow the food to 'breathe' and thus extend its storage life. The holes have diameters of between 50-300μm depending on the type of food and material.

Interference filters can absorb visible-NIR

Interference filters can absorb visible-NIR
Interference filters are widely used in a transmissive configuration, whereby light passes through the filter to cause some effect, be that band-pass, short-pass or long-pass etc. By nature, interference filters do not generally absorb in the visible-NIR, but instead light is either transmitted or reflected. That makes transmissive interference filters suitable for applications within this spectral range.

Pyroelectric detector uses a differential mode of operation

Pyroelectric detector uses a differential mode of operation
Pyroelectric detectors are susceptible to line interference and other sources of electromagnetic interference from non-detector related noise. Several manufacturers of OEM sensor devices use EMI filters to prevent these noise sources interfering with the operation of the device but for many gas detection applications a higher level of noise immunity is required.

PbS and PbSe infrared detectors

PbS and PbSe infrared detectors
LASER COMPONENTS is a world leading manufacturer of PbS and PbSe infrared detectors. From our research and production facility in Arizona we supply customers all over the world with these industrial grade thermal detectors. These detectors work on the principle that photons incident on the Polycrystalline thin film promote electrons across the bandgap increasing the conductivity of the material, in turn decreasing the resistance of the substance.

The 'Slim' line: 1064nm PLANEX laser

The 'Slim' line: 1064nm PLANEX laser
RIO has announced its first PLANEX laser emitting the classic YAG wavelength of 1064nm, featuring narrow line width (15kHz), low noise and high coherence length. Its compact housing and standardised electrical connections make it an easy drop-in replacement for existing designs. RIO lasers are available from LASER COMPONENTS in Germany and in the UK. RIO’s proprietary PLANEX technology is a combination of a gain chip and a planar light wave circuit (PLC) with an integrated Bragg grating.

High precision alignment lasers with small beam profile

High precision alignment lasers with small beam profile
LASER COMPONENTS has announced two additions to its portfolio of high-precision alignment lasers: LT-PLM-635-01-C1 and LT-PLM-IRB-635-01-C1. At the exit point, the beams of these precision modules feature diameters of 1mm and a squint angle of just 0.05mrad, which equals 5/100mm per metre distance from the target. With standard modules, the aberration from the centre of the housing is considerably higher at 8.7mm.
