Newsflash Spring 2023

Spring – Product – Update’s – Webinars – Product news – 

As spring is coming closer, we are looking forward to nature coming back to life after the cold and grey winter period.

To already give you a bit of spring vibes, we send you our latest edition of our Newsflash.

In this edition you will find some new interesting products, that have been launched or revised recently.

Next to this, we are happy to announce that TLS will be present, the 30th of March, at the Opto-mechatronics symposium in Veldhoven,
and also at the Fysica 2023, which will take place on the 26th of May, in Delft.

We hope to see you there!

CodixxA new family of colorPol® polarizers – thickness 90 µm

Color Pro 90 micron PolarizersCODIXX is introducing the latest development of colorPol® polarizers. The thickness of 90 µm opens up new dimensions for applications requiring outstanding properties of polarizers.

A new family of colorPol® polarizers is born.

The first members of the new family are optimized for the wavelengths 1310 nm (1260 – 1360 nm) and 1550 nm (1500 – 1600 nm) and feature a contrast ratio of > 10,000 : 1 (>40 dB) with excellent transmittance values. Both colorPol® polarizers are available with AR coatings too. More colorPol® polarizers are coming soon.

Gentec-eoHow is laser power output measured:

One specification that is always in the description of lasers is its power level, but have you ever wondered how these laser manufacturers measure laser power?

There are a lot of different ways to measure this parameter. Three technologies are often found in industrial power detectors: photodetectors, thermopiles and water calorimeters.

Let me present how each technology works as well as their advantages and disadvantages.

Laser power measurement with photodetectors

Photodetectors are mainly used for power in the picowatt to milliwatt range. They are made from semiconductors with a p-n junction that converts photons coming from a light source into an electric current. The more photons available, higher is the current.

The wavelength range of a photodetector depends on the semiconductor used. For example, Germanium photodetectors are often used with the 1550 nm wavelength that is used in telecommunication since it is compatible with this wavelength.

Photodetectors have a short response time which makes them the preferred choice in applications where power variations need to be quickly monitored. Even if photodetectors are made for lower powers, it is possible to add attenuation, a pick-off or an integrating sphere in order to use photodetectors at higher power.

One of the downsides of these detectors is their absorption that depends on the wavelength. It is important to select the correct wavelength; otherwise, the measurement will be way off. A good example of photodetectors is our PH series.

How Do You Test Photovoltaic Solar Cells?

photovoltaics-solar-cells solar-cell-testingWe’ve covered a lot of material as far as how solar cells work, and what their operation depends on. While it can seem quite daunting to try and dream up a test that captures all of the various factors we’ve discussed, the key information we need can be found in a few graphs/parameters:

  1. Responsivity
  2. External Quantum Efficiency (EQE)
  3. IV response
  4. Efficiency

The first three graphs are what we need to calculate the overall solar cell efficiency, and we’ve already introduced all of the quantities above. Essentially, what we’re after is how the solar cell responds to different wavelengths (which is given by the responsivity and EQE), as well as how it responds under different electrical conditions (which is given by the IV response). So how do we conduct tests to measure each of these things?

Because the photovoltaic industry is so large and active, there are actually standard test methods for measuring parameters of photovoltaic devices. We won’t go into great detail as far as what the tests involve, but it’s worth outlining the key elements of the tests, as well as how they’re typically done in practice.

Synchronized multichannel lock-in measurement system

SynkTek MCL1-540The MCL1-540 is a compact multichannel lock-in amplifier measurement system which can make complex AC and DC measurements on up to ten different analog signals.

In addition it can generate excitation signals to drive the experiment, as well as measure the current delivered by these signals.

It is therefore ideally suited to making direct impedance measurements on samples such as superconductors or in material analysis, as well as for use in optical, calorimetric, AC susceptibility, and many other experiments.
