News & Announcements for November 2020

I am sorry to say I did not get to meet any of you personally at either the SPIE Optics and Photonics show in San Diego or the American Society for Precision Engineering Exhibit scheduled for Minneapolis in October.

THE CENTERING STATION DOES PRECISION CENTERING WITHOUT THE NEED OF A ROTARY TABLE. THIS MAKES CENTERING SIMPLER AND FASTER, INCREASING PRODUCTIVITY.

THE CENTERING STATION DOES PRECISION CENTERING WITHOUT THE NEED OF A ROTARY TABLE. THIS MAKES CENTERING SIMPLER AND FASTER, INCREASING PRODUCTIVITY.

While I call it a centering station you can also think of it as a vertical optical bench so gravity helps when you insert optical elements. In this way of thinking you can easily obtain first order lens parameters quickly from PSM reading and the motorized vertical stage with 1 micron resolution.

I find the station so useful that I am constantly changing from one set up to another as inquires come in to make a measurement or see if a particular assembly performs as expected. The breadboard work table makes it particularly easy to assemble test fixturing from standard catalog opto-mechanical fixtures usually found in most optics labs.

Accessories for the PSM

Accessories for the PSM

Speaking of common opto-mechanical hardware, we have a variety of accessories for the PSM in the webstore including Ronchi gratings for spatial calibration of the PSM, precision measured wedged windows for angle calibration and Axicon gratings for creating Bessel beams.

We will shortly be adding Bessel beam projectors and long working distance objectives that work with the PSM. The objectives are designed to maintain sensitivity while substantially increasing the working distance.

If you have an idea that would make the PSM work better for you, let us know. We can always add it as a new product and make your life in the lab easier.

Keep safe, Bob

  • "As always we are very much loving the instrument, I personally love the camera upgrade from what I'm used to!"

  • The PSM is an ideal tool for finding the center of curvature of a ball or the axis of a cylinder. The question is for how small a ball or cylinder can the PSM do this?

    The smallest article that was readily available was a piece of monofilament 8 pound test fishing line that was 290 μm in diameter. There was no problem finding the axis of the fishline, and separating the Cat’s eye reflection from the surface from the confocal reflection of the axis. The experiment was done with a 5x objective, and the result would have been even more definitive using a 10x objective.
