Dr. Helmut Kessler of Manx Precision Optics (MPO) will be presenting a talk entitled “High LIDT, Low GDD Coatings for High Power Ultrafast Lasers“ at the upcoming The Optical Society (OSA) Laser Application Conference.
This OSA Meeting will be presented in a virtual, web-conference format.
Date: 5 October 2021
Time: 9:30-10:00 EDT (16:30-17:00 Israel time)
Thanks to Terry Hancock for sharing his capture of “Markarian’s Chain of Galaxies” in the constellation Virgo. This image was taken over two nights with a total acquisition time of 14 hours using Chroma Technology‘s LRGB filters at Grand Mesa Observatory in Purdy Mesa, CO, USA.
Chroma manufactures the highest quality astronomy filters with durable, sputtered hard coatings using single substrates of the best glass, eliminating the need for laminations. All primary filter coatings are applied on the front surface and anti-reflection coatings on the rear surface to prevent ghosting and to maximize transmission.
A diffractive beam shaper is an analytical optical component whose output is a known continuous phase profile, without phase randomization. This device is a flat, window-like element, with a unique computer optimized pattern etched into its surface in micron scale steps. When illuminated, this etched pattern creates phase delays to portions of the light which pass through the element. These phase delays can be controlled to ultimately generate an output image with almost any desired shape and size characteristics.

There are a wide range of probes used in scanning probe microscopy (SPM), and the information gathered can take many forms, including topography, elemental composition, conductivity, and others. To record and measure data accurately, the instrument must maintain a uniform distance between the probe, stage, and detector.
Because these techniques are sensitive to environmental disturbance, SPMs generally require some form of vibration isolation. Depending on a number of factors, such as the environment’s level of noise (acoustic, vibration and electromagnetic noise), thermal fluctuations, field of application, and the type of equipment utilized, either passive or active vibration isolation systems are recommended to mitigate the problem.
Herzan is the leading supplier of environmental solutions to the SPM community. Herzan specializes in mitigating all forms of environmental noise for precision microscopes, ranging from affordable table-top enclosures and vibration control tables, to large-scale advanced active vibration control platforms.
Herzan provides carefully articulated vibration, acoustic, and EMI isolation solutions to the global research community. They deliver exact solutions using their environmental isolation systems to provide customers the best user experience.
Their solutions provide the lowest noise-floor possible for sensitive research instrumentation. This is accomplished by a combination of strategic partnerships and the tireless work of their product enhancement and development team. Herzan continues to strive for total customer satisfaction by fundamentally understanding the customer’s instrument, research aims, and overall application needs to ensure meeting all facets of the customer’s goals.
Herzan’s goal is to enable their customers (the researchers) to focus on what matters most — the research (and not the isolation solution).
Herzan works with some of the most innovative individuals in the scientific research community. They are proud to help advance the research performed by their customers.
