High Energy Pulsed Nd:YAG Laser

The new Q-smart 1200 & 1500 high energy pulsed Nd:YAG lasers from Quantel Lumibird were on display at Photonics West recently. By using an all new and proprietary oscillator-amplifier design these new FPSS lasers can deliver up to 1.5J at 1064nm.


The Q-smart 1200 & 1500 encompass all of the Q-smart laser's applauded features such as plug and play harmonic gnerators, automatic phase-matching, excellent beam quality and detachable cables and coolant lines.

High Speed Back-illuminated sCMOS for Physical Sciences

The new Marana 4.2B-6 back-illuminated sCMOS offers 95% Quantum Efficiency and market-leading vacuum cooling down to -45°C and represents the ultimate in sCMOS sensitivity combined with high speed imaging. Marana 4.2B-6 delivers up to 74fps, perfectly suited to dynamic imaging or spectroscopic applications, such as wavefront sensing, lucky/speckle imaging, quantum gas dynamics or hyperspectral imaging.

Marana 4.2B-6 combines a 4.2 Megapixel array format with 6.5µm pixels, the smaller pixel better suited to resolution matching across many laboratory-based optical imaging configurations, as well as high resolution echelle spectroscopy. Low read noise and Andor’s innovative UltraVacTM vacuum cooling, render Marana simply the most sensitive back-illuminated sCMOS platform on the market. The hermetically sealed vacuum enclosure also uniquely protects the delicate and exposed sensor from attack by moisture and other gas contaminants, thus preserving both QE and cooling performance year after year.

Webinar : How to Improve Characterisation Efficiency for EBSD and EDS Applications

Friday 13 December

            Auckland (NZDT) : 5:00am
            Brisbane (AEST) : 2:00am
            Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Hobart (AEDT) : 3:00am
            Adelaide (ACDT) : 2:30am
            Perth (AWST) : 12:00am


Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDS) and EBSD are well-established microanalysis tools for today's characterisation laboratories. New developments in both hardware and software allow for improved efficiencies for users. In this webinar, improvements using EDAX's APEXTM and OIMTM Analysis software will be presented, showing users how they can accomplish more with less effort and time.

Presented by EDAX EBSD Product Manager, Matt Nowell.
