Demonstration of High Performance Spectroscopy System
We will soon be receiving a high-performance spectroscopy system from Princeton Instruments, for demonstrations to Australian and New Zealand researchers.
The system includes Princeton’s prize-winning Isoplane imaging spectrograph, which improves on traditional Czerny-Turner spectrographs by eliminating astigmatism and greatly reducing coma. The result is sharper images and sharper spectral lines with constant width across the focal plane, giving improved signal to noise ratio and dynamic range.
The detector is Princeton’s Pixis 400BRX which provides the following outstanding performance:
• Quantum efficiency >90% throughout the visible and near-infrared
• Deep thermoelectric cooling
• Extremely low readout noise
• No etalon effect
The system is controlled by Princeton’s new Lightfield software which combines complete control over Princeton Instruments’ cameras and spectrometers with easy-to-use tools for experimental setup, data acquisition and post-processing.
The system will be available for demonstrations from early May. Please contact us if you wish to arrange a demonstration in your lab!

New Semrock 2013 Master Catalogue
Semrock, Inc. has announced the release of the 2013 Master Catalognew 116-page, full-color, catalog of optical filters and related products, contains new Technical and Product Notes along with a large selection of new products recently introduced. With this release Semrock has introduced over 30 new thin-film filters for fluorescence microscopy and measurements, Raman spectroscopy, and other laser analytical instrumentation applications.
Among the standouts of this print edition is the expansion of the EdgeBasic™ product family. These long-pass edge filters are designed to provide deep blocking at the laser wavelength at a value price, and now cover 23 laser wavelengths. Coming in Q2 is the Semrock Fresco™ tunable filter system, which utilises VersaChrome technology to provide continuous spectral tunability over the visible range.
The PulseLine™ product family is specifically designed for femtosecond pulsed laser applications, and Semrock now offer a line of low-dispersion beamsplitters with four different splitting ratios and for either s- or p-polarized light. These beamsplitters, similar to the high reflectivity mirrors previously released, operate over the tuning range of a Ti:S ultrafast laser (650 – 1100nm).
Exceptional Semrock services highlighted in the catalog include our same-day shipping policy, 2-day custom-sizing, and a 30-day no-hassle return policy. All Semrock filters are covered under the company’s five-year warranty.
20th AIP Congress
The 20th Australian Institute of Physics Congress (AIP2012) is being held from 9-13 December 2012 at the University of New South Wales will be the biggest and most diverse scientific meeting on the Australian physics calendar. This year the Congress is co-located with the 37th Australian Conference on Optical Fibre Technology. Coherent Scientific will be attending this meeting.
Edinburgh Photonics Appoints Coherent Scientific
Edinburgh Photonics has appointed Coherent Scientific as its distributor for Australia and New Zealand.
Edinburgh designs and manufactures steady state fluorescence spectrometers, dedicated fluorescence lifetime spectrometers and laser flash photolysis spectrometers covering the vacuum UV to the near infrared with outstanding sensitivity. They have pioneered the technique of Time Correlated Single Photon Counting (TCSPC), permitting lifetime measurements down to 5ps to be made quickly and easily. Edinburgh's spectrometers are highly modular, allowing systems to be configured for a wide variety of applications or to be upgraded as research priorities change.
Edinburgh's products are used across a wide range of applications including photophysics, photochemistry, semiconductor physics and biophysics.
