measurements. The microscope offers a dispersive design with no moving parts, an integrated
research-grade confocal microscope, and complete software for data and image analysis.
Texas Instruments has released the DLP Light-Crafter evaluation module for integrating projected light into industrial, medical, scientific instrumentation and security applications. It was
created to provide developers with components
for using reliable digital light processing (DLP)
technology in new ways. It combines components with enhanced processing speed and
power in a compact form. Developers can create, store and display high-speed pattern sequences through the system’s USB-based application programming interface and graphical
user interface. At the system’s core is the refer-
ence design for the company’s 0.3-in. WVGA-resolution DLP chip set, which enables high-speed spatial light modulation. It has two main
components: the DLP3000 microelectromechanical systems device comprising 415,872 microscopic mirrors, and the DLPC300 controller,
which provides a convenient user interface and
ensures high-speed operation of the micro-mirror array.
Working with high-stability materials such as
glass, Zerodur and silica, Optical Surfaces Ltd.
supplies high-precision reference flats that are
used to measure the surface accuracy or the
transmitted wavefront of flat surfaces or optics.
Benefiting from a thermally stable manufacturing environment, the company achieves a surface accuracy of ;/20 peak-to-valley and surface roughness of <1 nm on reference flats up
to 600 mm in diameter. The reference flats are
used in high-precision applications in astronomy, laser beam steering, inspecting gauge
blocks, and interferometric flatness testing of
prisms, filters and optical windows. Optics up to
450 mm in diameter are provided with a Fizeau
interferometric test report, and larger flats and
spheres are quality assured using the Ritchey-Common test.

Mini Viewing Cabinet
The compact, lightweight CM-10MP mini viewing cabinet manufactured by Spectronics Corp.
is suitable for life sciences applications that require high-contrast fluorescence analysis, for
viewing thin-layer chromatography plates, and
for quality control inspection of printed circuit
boards. Weighing 1.8 kg, it can be conveniently
carried from place to place. With its compact
dimensions of 22.2 × 25. 4 × 11. 4 cm, the
unit can fit easily into cramped areas. Made of
molded high-impact plastic for rugged durability, it features a contoured eyepiece with a
built-in ultraviolet-absorbing window for safe
viewing. Openings on top of the cabinet accommodate one or two MiniMax series UV lamps.
The user places the cabinet over the lab samples being examined, turns on the UV lamps
and observes the bright fluorescence response.
Schneider Compact C-Mount lenses lock
