QEPVSI-b Quantum Efficiency Measurement System 

Oriel's QEPVSI-b is a preconfigured, yet flexible solution for measuring Quantum Efficiency (QE), also known as Incident Photo to Charge Carrier Efficiency (IPCE)l. Industry leading components ensure accuracy and repeatability. Oriel's TracQ™ Basic software provides instrument setup, control, data collection, and export.






LIDA-SRS-KIT Radiometry System

The LIDA-SRS-KIT Lock-In Digital Amplifier system provides an effective and user-friendly method for measuring optical signals. The system includes Oriel’s TracQ™ Basic software that acquires spectroscopic measurement data quickly and easily, without requiring any programming knowledge. The chopper included with the system is used to modulate a continuous wave source for detectors – a requirement when using a lock-in digital amplifier.







On behalf of the Newport - Oriel team, we are excite to announce the release of NEW OPS series Power Supplies.  

All new OPS-AArc Lamp Power Supplies and OPS-Q families of power supplies are designed to operate DC arc lamps and Quartz Tungsten Halogen (QTH) lamps. 

These power supplies are highly regulated instruments designed to provide stable performance in even the most demanding applications. The OPS series power supply are economical and user-friendly, making them ideal power supplies for both researchers and OEMs.

Introduction Video is also available

Newport Introduces NSA12 Actuator with CONEX-PP Controller

Newport Corporation, a global leader in high precision motion and photonics solutions, introduces its popular, compact NSA12 actuator with a new controller, the CONEX-PP. The CONEX-NSA12 is a miniature motorized linear actuator with Newport’s iPP™ stepper motor controller technology.

The actuator features a reliable open loop stepper motor that provides 11 mm travel and can be used for loads up to 28 N. It is a highly economical solution for motorizing mirror mounts, rotation stages, linear stages and other manual positioning devices. The compactness of the CONEX-NSA12 makes it ideal for space limited applications.

A vacuum compatible version is also available.

The actuator includes fixed minimum and programmable maximum travel limit switches to prevent equipment damage from over-travel. 

The NSA12 also features a non-rotating tip that prevents wear and avoids the periodic motion variations which can occur in other actuators with rotating tips.

Furthermore, the actuator incorporates a mechanism that virtually eliminates backlash, which is crucial in applications like active beam alignment or optical tracking.

The Oriel team is proud to announce the release of the new 75160NF Phase Locked Optical Chopper System.  

The Model 75160NF combines the chopper controller with an enclosed chopper head well suited for spectroscopy applications. 

The chopper head includes standard Oriel 1.5-inch series flanges, which couple to a wide variety of Oriel instruments and accessories, or it may be rod mounted for additional flexibility.

 The enclosed chopper head design provides several key advantages to our customers, such as:

  • Preventing detector saturation from unchopped background light
  • Preventing scattering
  • Reducing noise 
  • Enhancing safety

The Model 75160NF includes four chopper wheels and a number of additional items, for convenient ordering.  

A Quick Start Guide is included for running in a minimal amount of time.
