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.
Resolve Optics has supplied a number of its Model 287 wide-angle lens adapters to the BBC Springwatch group in Bristol, UK, to enable it to conduct high-quality external broadcasts.
Specialised Imaging is now offering SFW’s OT3 range of reduced-size optical triggers. The devices are targeted at the outdoor market and are suitable for use with high-speed cameras on proofing ranges.
Solartron Metrology’s Orbit LT laser triangulation system is a non-contact linear measurement sensor designed to support quality control in high-volume precision manufacturing applications requiring verification of every part. The sensor is particularly suitable for use by manufacturers of sterile or delicate products, as well as items that might be scratched by traditional touch probes.
A Newport customer manufactures vehicle-mounted laser-gated imaging systems for border security and surveillance forces. Due to the inevitable vibration caused by the vehicle engine, achieving motion stability is critical for the camera positioning system.
The Starfemto FX ultra-short pulse laser from Rofin-Baasel is suitable for industrial material processing applications within the electronics, semiconductor, micro-technology and medical-device manufacturing industries, among others.
