Push-Button Pulse Characterisation

Practical femtosecond laser control with adaptive pulse compression

MIIPS-HD is the first and only line of pulse shapers on the market that relies on a Hamamatsu’s 2D (800x600 pixels) liquid crystal on silicon-spatial light modulator (LCOS-SLM), and uses diffractive shaping to enable independent phase and amplitude control, without using a polariser. The system features enhanced power (pulse energy) handling capabilities and offers superior throughput for selected spectral ranges by utilising SLMs with dielectric back mirrors. It is ideal for direct amplified pulse compression and shaping.

SmartTable® Optical Tables

Featuring IQ® Damping Technology

The ST Series SmartTable incorporates Newport‘s patent pending intelligent Q (IQ) damping Technology to actively monitor, report, and adjust table-damping performance over a wide frequency band. This provides a dramatically quieter table surface, resulting in high quality imaging, improved long term stability, faster settling times and the ability to make measurements that previously required the quietest lab environments. SmartTable also allows users to monitor tabletop vibrations through built in vibration sensors that provide real time feedback on the vibration state of the table.

SmartTables are available in 3 versions: the ST Series fully integrated SmartTable, the upgradeable ST-UT Series SmartTable and the upgradeable ST-UT2 Series SmartTable with fine tune damping. Also available are Doubled ST and ST-UT Series Tables along with IQ-200-UG field upgrade kits.

Nanosurface Characterisation


3D optical surface profiler

One tool for all surfaces, without compromise™

Nexview 3D optical surface profiler excels at measuring all surfaces from super-smooth to very rough, with sub-nanometer precision, independent of field of view. Measurement types include; flatness, roughness, large steps and segments, thin films, and steep slopes, with feature heights ranging from < 1 nm up to 20 mm. The Nexview profiler automatically measures topography of virtually any surface from a super polished optical surface with sub-Angstrom surface roughness, to steep machined angles up to 85 degrees. It does all this in 3D, without contact, and provides the best qualities of other profiling technologies (stylus, confocal, focus scanning) without their shortcomings.
