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.
The Opto Diode OD-669-850 high-power GaAlAs IRLED illuminator from AP Technologies has ultra-high optical output and is suitable for night-vision illumination.
Xlamp CXA high-density (HD) LED arrays from Cree are now available from Mouser Electronics. The Xlamp CXA2590, CXA1850 and CXA1310 HD LED arrays are suitable for high-intensity LED lighting applications, such as directional indoor lighting, accent lighting, track lighting and spot lights.
The OD-663-850 high-output red light-emitting diode (LED) from AP Technologies has ultra-high optical output and is suitable for night-vision illumination.
Optical Surfaces is offering high-precision toroidal mirrors (toroids) that can be made to customers’ exact specifications. Toroidal mirrors are widely used for correction of aberration in a range of applications served by spectroscopic instruments, monochromators and imaging devices that require pinpoint focusing.
The 430 series of beacon sounders from Werma provides a range of LED lights and permanent, flash, rotating and strobe-like EVS light. The integral sounder has a massive output adjustable up to 105dB with 32 available tones to select from. The unit is approximately twice as large (407mm high) as the traditional combination unit available.
