Polytec offers laser Doppler vibrometer for characterising the dynamic behaviour of MEMS
Laser Doppler vibrometer
Polytec has introduced the UHF-120 laser Doppler vibrometer (LDV), which, featuring a frequency range of up to 1,200MHz, is designed for the characterisation of high-frequency dynamic behaviour of micro components and HF transducers.
According to the company, the laser Doppler vibrometer enables engineers to investigate the dynamics of micro components such as MEMS, transducer technologies and combinations of micro- and nanotechnology with ultrasonic actuation, characterising mechanical responses at these frequencies and displacements.
It suits such tasks because laser-based, non-contact optical testing avoids mass loading from direct contact to provide the entire frequency range split into phases, as well as allowing analysis of transients and decay phases in the time domain.
Polytec’s UHF-120 ‘ultra-high-frequency’ vibrometer has an extended bandwidth that allows characterisation of out-of-plane vibration frequencies bandwidth up to 1.2GHz and the velocity range to more than 100m/s.
Non-contact laser line displacement sensors from Micro-Epsilon are playing a pivotal role in the automatic positioning of synchroniser discs during production. The discs, which are manufactured for use in automatic vehicle transmissions, need to be accurately positioned under a laser prior to deburring.

TTI is offering super-bright reddish-orange, green and yellow versions of Kingbright’s through-hole and SMD LEDs. The super-bright reddish-orange version has a dominant wavelength of 625nm, the super-bright green version a dominant wavelength of 525nm and the super-bright yellow version a dominant wavelength of 590nm.
Mouser Electronics is stocking the TLP5702 GaAlAs photocoupler from Toshiba. Designed to drive medium-powered, middle-sized IGBTs and power MOSFETs up to approximately 80A, the TLP5702 uses a low-height, small-footprint SO6L package.
Optical Surfaces has introduced small-diameter (25–60mm) reflective beam expanders, which are suitable for space-restricted applications such as high-power lasers and multi-wavelength interferometry. Incorporating high-precision off-axis mirrors, the reflective beam expanders are said to provide an unobstructed output and highly efficient transmission.
