All Elliot Scientific Products
- Optical Tweezers
- Automated Alignment Systems
Elliot Scientific has developed numerous optical, mechanical and electronic custom systems for use in research and industry. Some of these have proven to be of particular benefit for the application they were designed for, and have then been further developed into a commercial product. Our current ranges are detailed below:
- Open architecture Optical Tweezers
- Self-contained Optical Tweezers
- Single-spot microscope upgrades
- Multiple-spot Optical Tweezers
- QPD or CPT force measurement
Elliot Scientific developed a complete, stand-alone and portable Optical Tweezers for researchers to begin their work on day one instead of spending their time designing, building, and calibrating an Optical Tweezers system from scratch. This award-winning unit was derived from open architecture designs, and led to a range of add-ons for commercial research microscopes. Today, Elliot Scientific can supply fully integrated Optical Tweezers comprising microscope, lasers, imaging system, optional force measurement, specialist software and the complex opto-mechanical design to make it all work straight out of the box.
- DAli 4 automatic alignment system
- 2-axis control (3-axis Piezo control )
- Standard or Long Travel piezos
- Various fibre alignment applications
- Ideal for drift compensation
Elliot Scientific developed the DAli 4 two-axis piezo controller for automated photonic device alignment with piezo-driven flexure stage assemblies. DAli 4 facilitates the rapid and automated alignment of photonic components across a wide range of applications. For example, fibre to fibre or fibre to laser diodes or waveguides. The system has been designed to be compatible with a wide range of external optical detectors and piezo actuators, and can be operated in pairs for critical alignment tasks that require the simultaneous optimisation of two components to a third one.
