Elliot Scientific Opens Up Exciting New Capabilities With the iIntroduction of Two Products From CRAIC
(Nanowerk News) Elliot Scientific opens up exciting new capabilities for researchers and manufacturers in the UK and Ireland with the introduction of two products from CRAIC Technologies of San Dimas, California.
Controlled Heating and Cooling of Microspectrophotometer Samples
The CRAIC Technologies Thermal Stage package, depending upon its
configuration, enables a scientist to analyze the transmission, reflectance
or fluorescence spectra of microscopic samples under conditions of extreme
cold or heat. Operating in the UV-visible-NIR regions, samples can be cooled
to as low as -196° or heated up to as high as 600 °C. The same system also
allows for atmospheric control of the sample environment: a feature that will
open up additional avenues of research in many fields such as biotechnology,
materials science and nanotechnology.

Microspectrophotometry of OLEDs
With Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED) increasing their share of the
displays and light source market, CRAIC Technologies are introducing the QDI
302 microscope spectrophotometer to measure and compare the spectral output,
intensity and colour consistency of each of the microscopic pixels commonly
found in OLED devices.
The QDI 302 is a spectrophotometer that is designed to be attached to a
microscope or probe station. It allows the user to rapidly acquire images and
spectra of microscopic sample areas. The QDI 302 can be used to measure the
colour and intensity of each pixel of a OLED display, comparing them or
mapping the intensity and colour of the whole device. The speed of the QDI
302 allows for entire OLED displays to be examined quickly and accurately.
This will ensure the consistency of both colour and intensity across the
entire device as well as from device to device.
