Elliot Scientific

Elliot Scientific offers Optical Tweezers for bioscience, and a portfolio of precision opto-mechanical products (Lab Essentials) and high quality colour filters and laser waveplates for optical physics.


Optical Tweezers

  •  Open architecture Optical Tweezers
  •  Self-contained workstations
  •  Single-spot microscope upgrades
  •  Multiple-spot Optical Tweezers
  •  Force measurement using QPD or CPT

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 a 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 systems 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.


  •  Fixed & Kinematic mounts
  •  Pillars & Posts
  •  Pedestals & Bases
  •  Clamps & Accessories
  •  Iris diaphragms

Elliot Scientific is a leading manufacturer of opto-mechanical components for use with optical tables and benches. This comprehensive Lab Essentials range offers a wide variety of components useful in the development of complex experiments that require the mounting and precision movement of optics and mirrors.

Automated Alignment Systems

  •  DaLi 2 automatic alignment system
  •  3-axis control
  •  Standard or Long Travel piezos
  •  Numerous fibre alignment applications
  •  Ideal for drift compensation

Elliot Scientific developed the DALi 2 three-axis piezo controller for automated photonic device alignment by piezo-driven flexure stage assemblies. DaLi 2 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.

Elliot Scientific Filters

  •  Dichroic colour filters
  •  Short pass filters
  •  Band pass filter
  •  Long pass filters
  •  ND filters, both reflective & absorptive

Elliot Scientific offers a range of low-cost high-quality stock filters in standard sizes. ND and coloured Schott glass filters are usually offered with diameters of 12.5 or 25 mm, or as 50 mm square filters. RGB and CMY dichroic filters are normally supplied as 50 mm squares or with 25 mm diameters. However, custom sizes and colours can be manufactured on request.

Elliot Scientific Laser Optics

  •  High Power Laser Mirrors
  •  High & Medium Power Zero Order Waveplates
  •  High damage thresholds
  •  Superior quality
  •  Competively priced

Elliot Scientific offers a range of competively priced superior quality stock laser optics. These include high power Nd:YAG mirrors with high reflectance coatings and high damage thresholds, and robust high power zero order waveplates at prices equivalent to many multiple order ones.
