Access...Ability! and Axis...Ability! Top-Adjust Linear Stage

Siskiyou now offers crossed-roller stages that adjust – and lock – from above. The unique angled Torque Reduction Drive boasts 170 pitch resolution with standard 100 pitch screws, and eliminates rotational torque for superior flatness of travel. Available in two sizes (1.3"×1.3" & 2.1"×2.1" respectively), and stackable for multi-axis configurations. Siskiyou makes it easy to fit more function in less space. Patents Pending

USB powered 2 CH Laser Instruments ... pJ to mJ and pW to mW

Having a problem finding a good Dual Channel Joulemeter or Power Meter? You need look no farther, as we have developed a family of versatile, USB powered, 2 CH Laser Instruments that measure energy or power and can ratio A/B or B/A. Our delta series instruments include a choice of pyroelectric, silicon, germanium and InGaAs detectors configured as energy or power probes. They mate to our delta-DPM Digital Power Modules and include powerful 2 CH LabView Software. Take your laser measurements 2CH, ratio the results, display data in a strip chart or histogram or log the data to a file on your PC. They’re plug and play simple.

Cobolt Zouk™ – Compact CW DPSSL at 355 nm!

The Cobolt Zouk™ is the world’s first really compact and power efficienct CW DPSS laser at 355 nm. With 10 mW output power, a perfect TEM00 beam (M2<1.1) and low noise (<0.3% rms), the Cobolt Zouk™ is perfectly suited for demanding fluorescence applications e.g. in flow cytometry, confocal microscopy or HCA. The wavelength of 355 nm is particularly useful for efficient excitation of DAPI, Hoechst 33342 and Indo-1. The laser is built into a hermetically sealed compact package (105×70×40 mm) using proprietary HTCure™ technology for extreme robustness and ensured lifetime.

Other wavelengths available in the sames series include 457, 473, 491, 515, 532, 561 and 594 nm.

New: iBeam smart – The Ultra Compact Diode Laser

The iBeam smart. TOPTICA allows users to increase productivity and reliability in their applications, while at the same time optimizing the weight and size of their systems at only 4×4×10cm3. As the first true one-box compact OEM diode laser modules it is capable of upgrading almost any existing diode laser. This is made possible by a highly integrated, microprocessor based electronic setup in combination with an outstanding mechanic optical design. Also, the iBeam smart is the most powerful as well.
