Newport Corp. of Irvine, Calif., has extended its line of vibration-isolation equipment by acquiring the products and technology of Tempe, Ariz.-based Vistek Inc. The new vibration-isolation products will be offered as part of Newport’s VIBe line and include mechanical isolation bearings, benchtop platforms and stand-alone workstations. In addition to protecting sensitive equipment, the products can reduce the amount of vibration that is transmitted into laboratory benches by equipment such as mixers, centrifuges and impact testers. The new line includes the compact LIP-Lab Isolation Platforms, which are designed specifically for balances, petri dishes and other small lab equipment and devices.
- A rotating chamber that can be spun at different speeds to generate great radial forces used to simulate different gravity loads.
- A defect in the cleaved end face of an optical fiber, in the form of a sharp protrusion at the edge of the fiber.
- 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...
