May 2012
NEWARK, Del., May 20, 2012 — B&W Tek Inc. was awarded US Patent No. 8,135,249 for the design of a spectroscopic probe that mounts directly to a standard microscope, it said.

The fiber optic probe is mounted right above the objective lens of a microscope to add spectroscopic function with minimal alteration to the optical path. The probe and microscope can perform Raman and fluorescence analysis as well as microsampling using different easily reconfigurable excitation wavelengths.

This is the company’s 18th patent since its establishment in 1997.

B&W Tek produces optical spectroscopy, laser instrumentation and portable/lab-grade Raman systems.

GLOSSARY
fiber optic probe
A flexible single- or multifiber cable having a bundle of glass fibers arranged to transmit an image.
microscope
An instrument consisting essentially of a tube 160 mm long, with an objective lens at the distant end and an eyepiece at the near end. The objective forms a real aerial image of the object in the focal plane of the eyepiece where it is observed by the eye. The overall magnifying power is equal to the linear magnification of the objective multiplied by the magnifying power of the eyepiece. The eyepiece can be replaced by a film to photograph the primary image, or a positive or negative relay...
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
