NewsFlash – International Day of Light 2023
|International Day of Light 2023 – Product – Update’s – Webinars – Product news –|
Today we celebrate the International Day of Light, the anniversary of the first successful operation of the laser in 1960 by physicist and engineer, Theodore Maiman. This day is a call to strengthen scientific cooperation and harness its potential to foster peace and sustainable development.
Countless products and applications, from: semicon to healthcare, follow from this one invention, making May 16th 1960 not only a major day in photonics, but also in our day to day lives.
Making us proud to say that for us, Te Lintelo Systems, it’s our passion!
To share our passion, with all of you, we are happy to announce that TLS will be present at: Another day of Photonics held at NTS Optel, today. At Fysica 2023 on the 26th of May, in Delft, and also at the LASER World of Photonics on June 27-30 held in Munich, which will be celebrating their 50th anniversary.
Please make know your interest to meet us at any of these occasions, by reaching out to your Te Lintelo Systems contact, or simply by replying to this mail. We hope to see you there!
Your Te Lintelo Systems Team
Enjoy reading René, Brigitte, Matthijs, Ruud, Monique, Ben & Roland.

New 8k x 8k scientific CMOS camera from Princeton Instruments
The COSMOS™ is the only large format, high performance CMOS camera designed and manufactured entirely within a single source. With LACera™ technology, the COSMOS offers superior sensitivity, large imaging area, low noise and fast frame rate.
Large format without compromise
The challenge of CMOS cameras has been maintaining performance when scaling to larger formats; in particular offering the combination of speed and low noise architecture. COSMOS delivers deep-cooled, low-noise performance on a multi-megapixel scale with global shutter, 18-bit readout, and glow reduction technology.
Due to back-illumination, the COSMOS achieves near-perfect light collection, achieving over 90% peak quantum efficiency. With minimal 0.7 e- read noise and 0.05 e-/p/s dark current, the COSMOS is able to detect the weakest of signals.
Fast Frame Rates
The COSMOS is well suited to dynamic imaging applications due to its fast frame rates and high sensitivity. In addition, the short readout times can enable quick decision making and analysis. With the ability to select multiple regions of interest (or imaging apertures) the COSMOS can improve readout speed while reducing unnecessary data.
Unmatched Dynamic Range
COSMOS offers an incredibly wide high dynamic range of 54,000 (94 dB) for measuring both bright and faint signal within the same image. Alongside the high dynamic range, the proprietary analog-to-digital converter design present within COSMOS provides unsurpassed linearity across the entire dynamic range, improving quantitative precision across all measurements.
True Global Shutter
Electronic global shutter devices are often necessary for the capture of fast-moving objects. This is achieved on CMOS through the addition of a “storage area” within each pixel. However, global shutters on back-illuminated CMOS devices were not previously possible due to parasitic light artifacts. The COSMOS has a redesigned pixel structure allowing for back-illumination alongside a global shutter. This redesign also minimizes parasitic light sensitivity, providing both the best sensitivity and artefact-free imaging.
Deep Cooling & Lifetime Vacuum
Deep cooling is essential to reduce the thermal dark current noise generated from long exposure times. The COSMOS builds on Teledyne Imaging’s industry-leading cooling performance, achieving -30°C cooling with low dark current. COSMOS sensors are also cooled from the moment of manufacture, providing far superior image quality, free of glows found in other back-illuminated sensors. The integrated all-metal, hermetically sealed vacuum enclosure, with lifetime warranty, prevents any outgassing or degradation problems, common within other cameras.
New Scale’s newest microstage delivers smallest system size and fastest integration for precision embedded rotary motion in smaller, more powerful instruments.
As with all M3 Smart Modules, this rotary micro stage has a piezoelectric micro motor and all drive electronics completely integrated in the miniature stage housing. There is no external control board, making it fast and easy to integrate into OEM instruments.
It provides point-to-point angular positioning with closed-loop resolution better than 0.022 degrees, bandwidth of 100Hz and 360 degree continuous rotation.

Your source for optical components
OZ Optics presents a cost-effective and high-end optical spectrometer. A special transmission grating is designed to realize exceptional sensitivity while reaching high signal-to-noise ratio (SNR), with an excellent spectral resolution over the entire operating wavelength range. A sensitive and high pixel density CCD chip is customized to suppress grating high-order noise. The spectrometer is integrable in well-established systems and can be remotely controlled via a USB port through an intuitive GUI.
A guide to solar simulation and solar simulators
from our partner G2V; Our Sun, Since the sun powers all of the life processes on Earth, being able to harness its energy and light source to invent, test and apply technology for mankind’s improvement is crucial.
The sun is the brightest object in the sky and something we are all familiar with. Life on our planet would not be possible without the sun. It provides the energy for the plants we eat and those that decayed into the fuel we burn today to harvest energy.
This article outlines a concept called ‘solar simulation’ – a technology that mimics the sun for use in research labs, industry applications and commercial use.

Evaluating the Spatial Resolution of Fizeau Interferometers Using Binary Pseudo-Random Array Targets
Modern requirements for detailed, precise and reliable measurements of optical components are driving the need for improved modern interferometric performance. Characterizing mid-spatial frequencies, fully automated polishing, and aspheric surface measurements all require a higher caliber of interferometric measurement quality. As performance requirements change, the ability to assess an interferometer’s performance must also improve. One crucial aspect of performance concerns spatial resolution. Currently, assessing spatial resolution is a challenge which cannot be solved with standard methods such as directly applying MTF. Here, we present the case for using a Binary Pseudo-Random Array (BPRA) with commercially-available BPRAs to address this key issue.
