YLR-150 1500-QCW-AC
LaserScan is a widely tunable mid-IR QCL spectrometer that identifies substances in seconds, portable, and rugged. It detects and measures substances on surfaces from a standoff distance of 6 inches to 2 feet.
The TrueSense PWA system is a self-contained, easy-to-use offline water testing system that evaluates a single 3 ml sample of water and provides simultaneous, easy to read results for multiple chemical parmaters critical to cooling water in just minutes.
The Quasi Continuous Wave pulsed fiber laser replaces the aging population of inefficient flashlamp-pumped solid state lasers with much smaller and longer lasting diode pumped devices. Plus, it has 30% rather than 3% wall plug efficiency.

The Optical Receiver Module is an optical receiver based on a photomultiplier tube. It's has a large collection area (12mm active input diameter) and offers a large detection area to optimize sensitivity in optical communication applications.
MPTflex is a flexible in-vivo multiphoton tomography for optical biopsy. It is a CE-marked medical system based on femtosecond multi-photon excitation of biomolecules like NAD(P)H, flavins, porphyrins, elastin and melanin.
Energetiq's EQ-99 Laser-Driven Light Source delivers broadband spectral output from 170nm in the deep UV, through visible and into the infrared, for advanced spectroscopic and imaging applications.

X-Cite XP750
The TECHSPEC plastic hybrid aspheric lenses provide optical designers with a unique, single element solution for achieving diffraction-limited focusing performance at high numerical apertures with broadband light sources.
The NT200 (Nanosecond Tunable) series tunable laser system integrates a nanosecond Optical Parametric Oscillator (OPO) and Diode-Pumped Solid–State (DPSS) Q-switched pump laser into a single compact housing. Pulse repetition rates allow for fast data acquisition.
The X-Cite® XP750—an optical power measurement device allows you to measure the optical power at the specimen level enabling consistent and repeatable illumination throughout research experiments, and also assist in equipment set-up and troubleshooting.
