Mad City Labs release MMP precision micropositioning stage series

MMP Stage Series


Mad City Labs Logo

Mad City Labs has started shipping their new MMP Series of precision, stepper motor driven, micropositioning stages that offer excellent repeatability.
 
Engineered for high precision positioning in a variety of applications, these high resolution long range linear positioning units are available in one, two or three axis configurations.
 
The dedicated Micro-Drive™ intelligent control system, designed by Mad City Labs, delivers exceptional stability with a high native precision. Complex motion profiles can be programmed with sophisticated control parameters, such as automatic acceleration and deceleration. This makes the MMP Series the ideal choice for demanding motion control applications.
 
High resolution (50 nm) linear encoders for users requiring real-time feedback of the actual stage position, and wireless control, are available options.
 
For more information about this micropositioning system, its controller or other products from Mad City Labs, contact us now.


New Gold SERS substrates for enhanced NIR Raman signal

Ato ID substrate


Ato ID logo

The newly released Ato ID™ Mato Plasmonic Sensor offers good excitation results for Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) in both the red (600 nm plus) and NIR wavelength ranges.

  • Gold (Au) coated: Ideal for red to NIR
  • Significantly enhances Raman signal
  • Single use, yet affordable
  • Cover slip compatible
  • Nanofabricated base

SERS advances noninvasive prostate cancer screening

The base substrate is soda-lime glass which exhibits relatively weak inherent Raman scattering and so does not interfere with the sample signal. The active region comprises a pure gold coating over the proprietary nanofabricated base (patent pending). The monolithic structure eliminates risk of contaminants that can arise with glued or chemically treated types. All Mato Raman substrates are vacuum sealed in a cleanroom environment for ease of handling.

For more details on Mato and the silver Randa SERS substrates, please contact us.


Lake Shore's new Model 372 AC Resistance Bridge/Temperature Controller now shipping

Model 372
Lake Shore logo

Lake Shore is now offering their new Model 372 AC Resistance Bridge/Temperature Controller for experiments requiring precise and accurate AC resistance measurements. It offers a number of improvements in both design and performance for greater accuracy when making temperature measurements at very low temperatures.
 
The 372 has monitor and frequency reference outputs for direct connection to external devices or equipment, plus Ethernet, USB, and IEEE-488.2 connectivity.
 
To complement the new controller, Lake Shore have also introduced the Model 3726 scanner option designed for connecting up to 16 ultra-low temperature measurement points. With lower input noise and DC bias current, the new scanner takes full advantage of the performance improvements built into the Model 372 and offers superior performance to previous generations.
 
For more information about the new Model 372, contact us now.


Brillouin Optical Time Domain Reflectometery added to Foresight™ DSTS by OZ Optics

BOTDR system

DSTS in situ

OZ Optics has added a BOTDR (Brillouin Optical Time Domain Reflectometry) single-ended fibre measurement capability to their Foresight™ Distributed Strain and Temperature Sensor (DSTS). Utilising Brillouin scattering in an optical fibre, the new module can sense changes in both temperature and strain along the length of a simple fibre, or the rapid detection and location of a major disturbance within a second, up to 70 km away.

  • Live measurement of strain and temperature
  • BOTDA and OTDR, and / or BOTDR
  • Fibre configuration:
    • Loop - Up to 100 km round trip
    • Single-ended - Up to 70 km
  • Multiple channel monitoring
  • Real-time fault point detection
  • High spatial strain and temperature resolution
  • Uses standard telecom optical fibre

Foresight™ has been developed for applications in construction, energy, and security. For more information about Foresight™ and BOTDR, download the datasheet, or contact us directly.
