    Pioneering Back-Illuminated sCMOS Camera

    PCO will introduce its latest camera innovation: the pco.panda 4.2 back illuminated, a state-of-the-art sCMOS camera featuring the same compact 65 x 65 x 65 mm dimensions of the renowned pco.panda. PCO’s new back-illuminated sensor provides outstanding quantum efficiency, up to 95%. These attributes, among others, make the pco.panda 4.2 bi camera of specific interest for microscopy and life science applications.

  • Laser Line Mirrors
    Laser Line Mirrors

    Optics Balzers has successfully developed and tested a special dielectric layer system with PARMS coating technology, making it possible to manufacture 45°-HR mirrors for 1030nm applications with an established destruction threshold of 0.44J/cm² at 210fs. These mirrors are typically used in ultra-short pulsed systems of Yb:YAG solid-state lasers.

  • Imaging Color Filters
    Imaging Color Filters

    Iridian Spectral Technologies has designed and manufactured a wide range of dielectric optical filters for imaging and machine vision applications. Featuring steep edges, high transmission values, and high durability, these color filters can be used to improve contrasts, and isolate spectral regions and colors in images.

  • Color Filter Glass: UL365S UV Band-Pass Filter
    Color Filter Glass: UL365S UV Band-Pass Filter

    HOYA’s color filter glass products include sharp cut/long pass, light-balancing, color-compensating, neutral density, heat-absorbing, multi-band calibration, and UV Absorbing/VIS blocking filters for the UV through NIR regions. Featured is the new UL365S UV Band-Pass Filter that offers UV transmitting/VIS absorbing performance with high UV transmittance, while providing the highest resistance to any effects caused by UV solarization and/or exposure to high humidity conditions. 

  • MHK C-Shape Stainless Steel Mirror Holders
    MHK C-Shape Stainless Steel Mirror Holders

    OptoSigma provides MHK C-shaped stainless steel mirror holders designed for 12.7 mm dichroic mirrors and beamsplitters. The holders feature high-resolution adjustment, and a knob-less design that is suitable for system integration.
