This Week's New Products
Fiber-coupled spectrometers from Data Optics, Ypsilanti, MI; Spatial light modulator from Cambridge Research & Instrumentation, Boston, MA; Light cure systems from Loctite, Rocky Hill, CT; AR coatings for UV lenses from Edmund Industrial Optics, Barrington, NJ.
The JETI family of fiber-coupled, miniature spectrometers, systems, and accessories are PC-coupled. They have resolution of 9 or 6 nm in the visible region and high dynamic range and sensitivity. Options include UV models, internal light source, dip probe, reflection-measuring head, external test-cell/filter-measurement head, and color-measuring device.

Spatial light modulator
The SLM-256 spatial light modulator for telecommunications provides dynamic control over ultrafast laser pulses at 1330 and 1550 nm. It has a working range of 400 to 2000 nm and lets researchers manipulate phase and amplitude characteristics of spectrally dispersed femtosecond laser beams to change temporal and wavelength components of optical signals.

Light cure systems
The Light Cure Wand is a metal-halide lamp system with light output up to 4 W/cm2 and is available with 5-mm-diameter single or 3-mm-diameter dual wands. The Litepoint UVC Wand System uses a high-pressure mercury-vapor lamp to produce up to 8 W/cm2 and is a single-wand system with a 5-mm diameter.

AR coatings for UV lenses
UV lenses made from synthetic fused silica are treated with an antireflection (AR) coating to improve transmission of faint UV fluorescent signals. The coating reduces reflections to less than 1% between 250 and 400 nm, where many dyes used in biometrics and scientific imaging fluoresce. The coatings are available on plano-convex, double-convex, plano-concave, and double-concave lenses in standard diameters from 6 to 50.8 mm.
