The Elliot Scientific October 2018 Newsletter: In this issue, how Elliot|Martock Flexure Stages support quantum research around the globe; Gamma Scientific forge ahead with an SWIR of their RS-7 SpectralLED light source; Siskiyou products for positioning; and Accurion's amazing vibration isolation systems. Plus chain mail and Photonex Live!

Our Gold Series Flexure Stages support quantum research in many labs worldwide

Gold Series Flexure StagesSwipe through the ten photos above - choose our browser newsletter for the best viewing experience - and you'll see our Gold Series Flexure Stages being used in light-based experiments probing the secrets of the quantum world.

These versatile Elliot|Martock stages deliver nanometre positioning for fibre launch systems (single-mode, multimode, and polarisation maintaining fibres), waveguide alignment, and other precision photonics applications.

Derived from the immensely popular original stage invented and patented by Martock Design, Elliot Gold™ series XYZ flexure stages offer arcuate displacement (vertical displacement due to longitudinal flexure motion) up to 4x better than competing products.Martock compact stages

We will be demonstrating these stages and their accessories, as well as our range of compact stages and dovetail slides (right), at Photonex. If you are unable to attend, then please contact us for more information.

Thanks go out to all persons and institutions who contributed photographs for this section. If you have a photo of any Elliot|Martock or Elliot Scientific products used in your lab, and would be happy for us to feature them, then please do let us know by sending an email to or tweet @elliotsci.

It's no trick: Amazing active vibration isolation systems from Accurion

  • Active platforms
  • Active workstations
  • Active supports
  • Acoustic enclosures
  • Custom designs

Accurion designs and manufactures the Halcyonics range of advanced vibration reduction systems for science, technology and the HiFi enthusiast.

  • Benchtop units for small to medium-sized applications up to 120 kg
  • Workstations for the science or medical laboratory, for example IVF
  • Supports for larger, heavier applications which are usually floor mounted

Active vibration isolation overcomes the limits of passive damping systems, enabling the attenuation of vibrations caused by machinery, people, traffic, even sound waves, that would disturb delicate equipment.

So, whether it's high-resolution measurement, high-precision manufacturing process, or high fidelity sound, contact us to get the best performance.

As our demo unit weighs in at 37 kg, we decided not to schlep it to Photonex.

Send this newsletter to 10 of your friends... or else

chainmail shirt

In the early days of email and the internet, then later with social media, messages circulated asking the reader to forward it on to at least 10 of their friends for good fortune... or bad luck would ensue if they didn't.

Well, we at Elliot Scientific do not promise you riches or ills, but we do ask that if you know of any colleagues who might benefit from reading our newsletter to let them know about it.

They can sign up or read it via our website, join the mailing list using this link, or just read it online at Issuu. Thanks go to CNgoXkde for allowing us to use the photo of his homemade chainmail - CC BY

New RS-7-SWIR from Gamma Scientific covers 900 to 1700 nm spectral range

Gamma Scientific RS-7 SpectralLED & Integrating Sphere

1m integrating sphere fitted with RS-7 illumination

The multiple award winning SpectralLED® tuneable visible light sources from Gamma Scientific combine the output of nearly three dozen discrete LEDs - each having a different centre wavelength - to produce output that can be programed to closely match virtually any illuminant source or the spectrum of any illuminant reflected by a target.

RS-7-SWIRThe new SWIR model (Shown right) is fitted with 9 short-wave infrared wavelengths for synthesis of commercially available light sources, making it well-suited for calibration and testing of night vision sensors, remote sensing sensors and industrial monitoring equipment.

  • RS-7-1 Benchtop
        75 mm output port & integral integrating sphere
  • RS-7-2 Large Output Port
        Exit ports up to 600 mm dia.
  • RS-7-3 Fiber Optic Output
        Fibre outputs with distal end collimation
  • RS-7-4 Wafer Probe
        Directly replaces lamp-based systems
  • RS-7-5 Baffle Output
        150 mm output with adjustable f/number
  • RS-7-6 Wide Field of View
        75 mm output port with up to 180° FoV
  • RS-7-7 Light Booth

  • RS-7-SWIR
        900 to 1700 nm spectral range

We will be demonstrating a selection of Gamma Scientific products at Photonex. If you are not attending, please contact us for more information.

Siskiyou engineer with quality and flexibility in mind for life science and photonics

Siskiyou gimbal mounts
Siskiyou micromanipulators

Siskiyou Corporation offers a diverse range of micromanipulators, microscope sample positioners, and modular opto-mechanical building blocks to life science and photonics researchers.

  • Single-axis manipulators
  • 4-axis manipulators
  • Huxley-style manipulators
