Thursday, 26 July 2018

This August, many of the world’s leading experts in Optics and Photonics will converge on San Diego, CA for the 2018 annual event and Avantes will be there, on-hand to meet with customer and the curious at booth #629 in the exhibit hall.

Themes this year include Nanoscience Engineering, Organic Photonics, and Optical Engineering with speakers and programs on topics of interest from around the realm of photonics technology.

At the Avantes booth, we have exciting new products we are eager to display, including the latest 4096-pixel detector arrays with the higher resolution available on the market. We are also featuring the integration case study projects from our Engineering team which showcase the integration options and capabilities of the Avantes modular equipment design.

Visit the Avantes booth #629 in the exhibit hall to see the latest photonics developments from Avantes.

Featured Products

In Addition to the exciting new 4096-pixel instruments, Avantes will also be showcasing additions to the Avantes EVO spectrometer lineup. Discover the AvaSpec-NIR256/512-1.7-EVO, the AvaSpec-NIR256/512-1.7-HSC-EVO, the Cooled NIR spectrometer up to 1700nm, and the AvaSpec-ULS4096CL-EVO (CMOS).


Filter Wheel Transmission Measurements

Similar to the ULS4096CL-EVO, the AvaSpec-4096CL-Mini is a high resolution, compact spectrometer that can keep up with its competition. This demo shows the performance of a broadband configured spectrometer when measuring several different types of typical filters, including notch, bandpass, long pass, short pass, and neutral density filters. All are referenced against air when measuring the transmittance of a collimated beam of Halogen light passing through each filter.

Equipment: AvaSpec-4096CL-Mini (UA grating broadband), AvaLight Hal, 2 broadband fibers, 2 collimating lenses, and optomechanical mounting.

Trigger System

Showcasing our latest and greatest, the AvaSpec-ULS4096CL-EVO is at the forefront of the spectrometer market utilizing the highest number CMOS pixel array on the market.* With minimum exposure times down to the microsecond, a state of the art electronics platform with onboard processing, and over 15 I/O signal options, the  AvaSpec-ULS4096CL-EVO was integrated into a setup to measure a variable rate, pulsed xenon flash lamp. Using an optoelectric trigger the spectrometer was synchronized to measure within 90nS of the light source's flash, and only measures when a flash is present.

Equipment: Spectrometer, AvaLight-XE-HP-Mini, a Waveform Generator (for creating pulses to light), the AvaTrigger, Broadband Optical Fiber, & 90 Degree Cosine Corrector.
