Finisar - Autumn NewsLetter

Welcome to the Autumn 2014 edition of Finisar’s Instrumentation News! We report about an exciting upgrade of the WaveShaper™ 16000, as well as new high speed detectors and diffraction gratings. We also have an improved upgrade process to enable Fourier Processing on earlier models of the WaveShaper™ 4000. 

eagleyard introduces a NEW 16 Watt single emitter laser diode at 1064 nm

Berlin/Germany 4th September 2014: eagleyard Photonics, a leading supplier of high-power laser diodes offers a single-emitter laser diode with an optical output power up to 16 Watt

The new 16 Watt Broad Area Laser (BAL) complements the successfully established high power product line offered by eagleyard. A compact design containing an integrated fast and slow axis collimation makes this laser diode perfectly suited for challenging fiber coupling applications. The 16 Watt BAL-1064 is especially used for medical handheld applications as well as for material treatment.

With 16 Watt cw power out of a single emitter comprising a width of 200 μm, system design engineers have new options for achieving extremely small footprint solutions for their application.

„We are continuously striving to improve and conform our high quality products – especially for sensitive medical applications.“ says Michael Kneier, VP Sales and Marketing at eagleyard Photonics. „The medical sector is a very extensive and fragmented field, guided by multiple requirements from various end customers. This requires a flexible product platform driven by continuous innovation and progress.“ explains Kneier furthermore. “As a result we serve this market with a wavelength offering 670 nm up to 1064 nm.”

Teledyne LeCroy - today reset the bar for High Value Oscilloscopes

Teledyne LeCroy Debuts WaveSurfer 3000 Oscilloscopes Featuring the MAUI Advanced User Interface
Up to 500 MHz with the Deepest Measurement Toolset, Multi-Instrument Capabilities and a large 10.1” Touch-Screen Display

Chestnut Ridge, NY, July 1st, 2014 – Teledyne LeCroy today introduces the WaveSurfer 3000 series of oscilloscopes featuring the MAUI advanced user interface. This advanced user interface, previously available only on higher-end oscilloscopes, seamlessly integrates a deep measurement toolset and multi-instrument capabilities into a cutting edge user experience centered on a large 10.1” touch screen, the largest display and only touch screen in this class of oscilloscope. WaveSurfer 3000 oscilloscopes are available in bandwidths from 200 MHz to 500 MHz, with 10 Mpts/ch memory and up to 4 GS/s sample rate. Beyond traditional oscilloscope functionality the WaveSurfer 3000 has a variety of multi-instrument capabilities including waveform generation with a built in function generator, protocol analysis with serial data trigger and decode, and logic analysis with an available 16 channel mixed signal option.

Combining a fast waveform update rate of 130,000 waveforms/second with History mode waveform playback and WaveScan search and find, the WaveSurfer 3000 is an outstanding tool for waveform anomaly detection. The advanced active probe interface gives tremendous flexibility for measuring high voltages, high frequencies, currents, or differential signals. The superior toolset with powerful math and measurement capabilities, sequence mode segmented memory, and LabNotebook ensure that problems can be debugged, analyzed and documented for a faster solution.

MAUI Advanced User Interface

MAUI is an advanced user interface that was developed to put all the power and capabilities of the oscilloscope right at the user’s fingertips. It was designed for touch; all important oscilloscope controls, as well as positioning and zooming waveforms, moving cursors, configuring measurements and interacting with results are done with intuitive touch screen controls. MAUI is made for simplicity; basic features and advanced tools are seamlessly integrated to simplify operation. Time saving shortcuts and intuitive dialogs simplify setup, and the intelligent display resizes waveforms and measurements to simplify debug. MAUI is built to solve; all aspects of waveforms can be measured to quickly identify problems, the causes of these problems can be determined using the deepest set of debug tools and solutions can be found fast with the powerful analysis tools.


The WaveSurfer 3000 is available in four different models ranging from 200 MHz, 2 channel to 500 MHz, 4 channel with US list prices ranging from $3,200 to $6,950.
