Thanks for your subscription


IL Photonics​​ and​​ RM Photonics​​ merged and present from now on a joined newsletter. The newsletter will continue to carry the name​​ IL Photonics​​ newsletter.



LiNbO3 (Lithium Niobate) wafers and components​​ are​​ available in various sizes.



Videology announces an enhanced version of its popular​​ 20D389​​ B&W camera board. An optional fast shutter speed control has been added to make more complex high speed applications possible. Changes to the speed can be implemented within one field.


Shutter speeds can vary from 1/200th to 1/100,000th of a second.

Videology’s​​ 20D389FS​​ is an excellent choice for applications such as license plate detail capture at high speeds, bar code data on ships arriving in ports, or information on special government vehicles. Data is imaged within a small field of view. It is easily achieved even with varying levels of illumination, plate reflectivity, or shadows.

A specific I²C interface detail is supplied so the OEM can create the appropriate interface schema to optimize our capability.

All​​ prospects with​​ high volume applications are welcome to call for sales and support.​​ 


Lasers / Light sources


New Offerings from Princeton Optronics


10W 532nm low noise​​ (Finesse) from​​ LaserQuantum


The Finesse 10 from Laser Quantum is the well-established, high-power 532nm CW laser of choice, widely used for Ti:Sapphire pumping worldwide. With new improved noise specifications, the Finesse now boasts <0.15% rms and maintaining the stability to 0.1% making the finesse an ideal selection for the photonics community. Further to this Laser Quantum now offer a full 5 year warranty as standard to our scientific customers, giving peace of mind and strengthening our confidence in the finesse's consistently high reliability since its launch 6 years ago.​​ The finesse specifications have been improved noise is <0.15% (rms) and power stability <0.1% (rms) – a new specification sheet is available.

To celebrate the improved specification and ‘show off’ quality and high reliability​​ we are now offering 5 years/15,000 hours​​ warranty​​ on all academic sales!



Datasheets of Photonis USA (including MCP EM-Tubes and related detectors) are now available from IL Photonics.




New​​ Radiometers​​ to be announced shortly from International Light:

ILT801​​ is temporarily under development


The ILT801 had a small dynamic range of about 3.5 decades, which many customers found limiting so we are considering two options and would like your feedback.


The ILT802 would be just like the ILT801. Allow continuous simultaneous monitoring of up to​​ 8 sensors with one meter, or 16 with 2 meters.  It would expand the dynamic range of the​​ ILT801 from 3.5 to approx. 4.5 decades and does not require a separate meter purchase. ​​ 


The ILT803 is a multiplexer that allows you to connect 8 sensors to one ILT1700 allowing the full 10 decade dynamic range. Using software controls you can set the time of measurement (time between switching to the next sensor) and control how many/which channels would be activated. (All sensors cannot read at the same time like the ILT801).


The ILT802 benefits, Simultaneous measurement. Lower total system cost.

ILT803 benefits,​​ broader sensor selection, greatly increased dynamic range.


ILT802 disadvantages, Small dynamic range. Customer must know and accurately set the upper measurement limit,​​ smaller calibration range capabilities, only works with ILT solid state detectors.


ILT803 disadvantages. Requires 8 seconds to measure 8 sensors​​ at a 1 second transfer rate, requires the purchase of the ILT1700.



Raptor introduces a​​ R3​​ Raman Engine​​ -​​ Compact and rugged EMCCD based imaging spectrograph​​ (More details in the featured company section).

IL Photonics​​ and​​ RM Photonics​​ merger

After 2 years of growing cooperation IL Photonics and RM photonics agreed this month to merge completely. The joined operation will continue as IL Photonics BSD ltd. Moshe Bril will operate as general manager and Meir Chazon will join as sales manager together with Eli Vilge who continues as sales engineer and other employees of IL Photonics. Meanwhile the joined operation will keep a small office in Makabim together with the head quarters in Beit Shemesh.
