NEW PORTABLE TOUCH SCREEN SPECTROMETER - JUNE 2015

These small spectrometers, operate as compact handheld bench or wall mount, instruments. They are able to analyse samples for fluorescence, absorption, reflection, colour, and Raman, using micro and macro fibre optic probes, or remote optical sample geometries. The instruments can be used to capture target IMAGES and measure SPECTRA simultaneously. The screen size is 10” or 12”, with touch keyboard and optional hard keyboard The software is “APP” based and the unit can be used for standard internet connection and data transfer. The units are battery or mains powered with on board LED, including UV LED option or tungsten xenon ultra- compact source. Other sources which are external include micro lasers from our associate RGB Laser-systems.

A NEW ALLIANCE AGREEMENT BRINGS MICROFLUIDICS AND PHOTONIC SENSORS TOGETHER

Camtech Innovations [UK] and Knight Photonics [UK] have signed an agreement to enable expertise of both groups to develop new products and new sales opportunities. Camtech Innovations specialise in microfluidic diagnostic devices, integrated into the lab-on–the-chip. Knight Photonics develop and manufacture in the UK, micro spectroscopic and optical instrumentation for advanced analysis of the chip chemistries . A series of compact dedicated sensors with on board microchemistry and on board spectral photonics are now being offered, having matured to this stage over several years of cooperation already. The product fusion of these two disciplines is expected to encourage a significant profitable growth in volume sales of these integrated sensor packages. Markets include, bio-security, environmental control, and medical point of care and medical self diagnostics.

NEW WALL OR CONTAINER MOUNTED SPECTRO SMART SENSOR FOR ON LINE MEASUREMENT

This array spectrometer is designed for remote measurement using fibre optics, to connect to on-line flow cells or in line optical probes. The geometry of optical measurement can be selected, allowing a variety of measurement styles including ,Colour, Turbidity, Fluorescence, reflection. The spectrometer has an I/O port to allow data transfer and command input and can be used with GigE, RS232, USB2, Bluetooth, or on board SD card. Dedicated termination of fibres allow close routing to rollers and selected geometries to measure coatings by reflection and transmission. For flow line, fermenter and other operations, electrochemical probes can be included. For multi- station measurements, optical multiplexing or synchronisation of multiple spectrometers is possible.

DEPOSITION AND PLASMA SPECTRAL MONITORING IN VACUUM

Knight Photonics Manufacturing has introduced several useful “in vacuum” optical interfaces. These allow illumination and detection of light at many specific geometries in relation to the sample or coating. Light is conducted to and from the measurement zone using vacuum suitable fibre optics. These connect to spectrometers or optical measuring instrumentation, using fibre optic feed throughs or via high vacuum miniature window transfer optics. Angular and goniometric devices can be made to suit specific monitoring or research requirements. Systems are provided for static and on line chamber work.

Please contact our engineers for specific application requirements.
