The product can therefore be used for displacing arc lamps in display applications like cinema or large venue projectors by lasers. In future laser projectors, it can act as a scalable source of blue light. Its brightness and power enable arc lamp replacement even in the highest currently available brightness projectors.

In addition, the fibre-coupled output power also extends the current capabilities of blue light therapy and photodynamic therapy (PDT).

Edmund Optics will be demonstrating a variety of applications for optical components. From analysing the human body to exploring outer space, even the most complex systems can be built from stock optics.

The company will display its

fluorescence microscope, which features a white light Lumencor SOLA Light Engine fluorescence excitation.

This will allow the user to excite almost any fluorophore in the visible spectrum. By incorporating a bandpass filter, the microscope can achieve excitation efficiency similar to that of a diode based laser. Edmund Optics will also show the Zaber ASR motorised microscope stage for faster scanning capabilities. This is suitable for larger samples that need to be completely inspected across the entire area. The images are captured, saved, and stitched together once the scan is complete. Finally, the demo uses multiband filters, such as Edmund Optics’ band fluorescence bandpass filters, for enhanced fluorescence inspection.

Elforlight will be exhibiting its latest range of nanosecond wavelength shifted

and tunable DPSS laser systems, providing wavelength flexibility and extended coherence length. Applications include photoacoustic imaging, MALDI imaging, Raman | @electrooptics

spectroscopy, FLIM, lidar, holography, flow visualisation, rapid prototyping, and micromachining. A range of add-ons to the company’s solid state lasers enable nanosecond kilohertz tunable sources across visible, near and mid infrared wavelengths from microjoule to millijoules. Product highlights include: 1,400 to 4,000nm OPOs pumped at 1,064nm producing near and mid IR outputs with 1mJ energy and >1kHz repetition rate; dye lasers provide tunable visible output, kilohertz repetition rates, microjoule energies, and, coming soon, visible tunable nanosecond kilohertz OPOs tunable from 450nm to 680nm; narrow linewidth (SLM) kilohertz millijoule lasers for holographic and interferometric/wavefront analysis techniques; and 2,000nm multi kilohertz compact short pulse nanosecond lasers.

Forth Dimension Displays (ForthDD) will be showcasing a working

demonstration of a 3D AOI (automated inspection of populated PCBs) and SPI (solder paste inspection for unpopulated PCBs) structured light projection engine, developed in partnership with Chinese customers.

At the trade show ForthDD will also display inline, fast-throughput 3D measurement systems that use spatial light modulator based structured light projection. The SXGA-3DM was designed specifically for applications that use cameras to image PCBs and use the distorted images from different perspectives to reconstruct exact geometric models of the surface shape of the PCB. This is done by projecting high-resolution, precise fringes onto the surface.

Frankfurt Laser Company will be presenting a number

of products at Photonics West, ➤
