The list of Modular System components is growing constantly.

We can also design components to customer specifications.

Contact us for details.

Light Sources
  He-Ne Laser 2 mW or 5 mW (the latter is recommended for weakly reflecting surfaces)
  Laser Diode
More compact than He-Ne laser. Wavelength and output power can be specified
  Xe Arc 75 W Xe high pressure arc lamp, air cooled, with starter and power supply. EMF shielded. (l > 200 nm)
  Spectral Selection
  Interference Filters 50 - 10 nm bandwidth, all standard wavelengths available
  Filter Wheel Automatic change of filter (specify configuration)
  Monochromator Focal length 100 mm, f4, typ. resolution 4 nm (200 nm < l < 850 nm)
  Polarisers and Retarders
  Polaroid Low-cost, for visible spectrum and near UV
  Rotating Retarder Single wavelength or achromatic. Low vibration rotation stage w. microcontroller interface
  Birefringence Modulator 3 component high stability design, 50 kHz modulation frequency (l > 200 nm)
  Microscope Objective Please contact us for more information
  Photomultiplier 11 stage Thorn EMI end-on type, S-20 response, with housing and high voltage power supply (180 < l < 950 nm)
  Si Photodiode UV-enhanced Si diode with low-noise preamp, separate AC/DC outputs. (180 < l < 1100 nm)
