SPECTROSCOPY Hübner’s laser qualifies for S&I system

S&I Spectroscopy & Imaging has qualified the C-Wave tuneable laser from Hübner Photonics for use with its TriVista spectrometer system. The combination of the C-Wave widely tunable

continuous-wave (cw) single frequency lasers (covering wavelengths from 450nm to 3.5μm) with the triple-grating spectrometer TriVista, is expected to become a new standard for resonance Raman spectroscopy and microscopy. This combination is especially suited for the challenging low-frequency Raman range <1cm-1


Fresh options for ImageMaster Pro measurement systems

Trioptics has expanded the portfolio of ImageMaster Pro measurement systems with three model variants for measurement requirements that result from the latest technology trends for smartphone camera optics.

One new technology in the mobile phone

market is under-display camera technology – camera optics are almost invisibly hidden under full-screen display surfaces. High- resolution, professional photography and the zoom capability of cameras are two further key drivers for the future. All three trends cause fresh challenges for measurement technology. One of the new measurement systems –

ImageMaster Pro Display for image quality measurement of smartphone displays – will be presented to visitors at Touch Taiwan in Taipei.

The ImageMaster Pro HD has been

developed to meet the measurement requirements of new types of high-resolution smartphone optics. With 43 integrated field positions (cameras), the system enables a particularly high measurement point density. Another groundbreaking trend in the

mobile phone market is the zoom capability of cameras. Here, Trioptics relies on the ImageMaster Pro ST for highly precise measurement of the smallest fields of view using a new type of single telescope measurement technology.

The narrow linewidth and very stable emission frequency of the C-Wave, paired with its excellent spectral purity, allows recording impressive Raman spectra: the companies were able to measure low frequency Raman bands at or below 5cm-1

from the excitation wavelength, even

without filtering the excitation beam. For applications in Raman spectroscopy, most tuneable lasers require elaborate filtering to suppress unwanted amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) which can cover the weak Raman signals. Cleaning up the laser’s emission


MicroCeti microLED display micromachining platform

3D-Micromac has introduced microCeti, a laser micromachining platform that supports all laser processes in microLED display manufacturing with the high throughput and precision, and low cost of ownership, needed for volume production requirements. The new platform is available in three

configurations: Lift, a laser transfer process for nearly every microLED material and shape; LLO, on-the-fly laser lift-off suitable for customer-related microLED material; and Repair, for single-die-repair process at every step of the microLED production route. The platform’s high speed enables the

transfer of hundreds of millions of microLEDs per hour, without having to apply mechanical forces, while the on-the-fly square-beam laser enables transfer of nearly any shape and size of microLED. The microCeti platform features a high-

precision UV-wavelength laser with high repetition rate and a positioning system for three stages (donor, substrate and mask) and

up to 16 axes to transfer every microLED with sub-two-micron positioning accuracy and nanometer-scale repeatability. MicroCeti supports donor wafer sizes

ranging from 50mm (2 inches) up to 200mm (8 inches), as well as intermediate/transfer wafers and backplane substrates up to 350 x 350mm. In addition to microLEDs, the microCeti platform is also suitable for standard LED and miniLED processing.

spectrum can be challenging, especially for the low-frequency Raman range close to the excitation wavelength. During qualification, the C-Wave revealed no detectable ASE.


VPIdeviceDesigner VPIphotonics has released a software platform for the design of photonic devices. VPIdeviceDesigner is a versatile simulation

framework for the analysis and optimisation of integrated photonic devices, waveguides and optical fibres. This powerful design tool offers a set of

full-vectorial finite difference mode solvers that support widely customisable non-uniform meshing with symmetric and perfectly matched layer absorbing boundaries for simulations of guided modes in straight and bent waveguides and fibres. For simulations of photonic devices, it offers 2D and 3D implementations of the finite- difference frequency-domain beam-propagation method (BPM). | @electrooptics

VPIdeviceDesigner supports flexible defining of 2D waveguide cross sections and 3D device layouts made of real (dispersive, temperature-dependent, doped, etc) optical materials. It provides a user-friendly object-oriented

Python interface, which is closely integrated with the Python-based ecosystem of open- source software for mathematics, science, and engineering, including libraries Numpy and Scipy, and a comprehensive 2D plotting library Matplotlib. An advanced analysis of the simulation

results – including manipulations on the calculated elecromagnetic fields, and easy design automation with respect to any desired performance criteria – are facilitated.
