CARLSBAD, Calif., May 17, 2006 -- Laser, instrument and photonics products maker Melles Griot announced that its complete line of optomechanical hardware and positioners is now available for purchase online via the company's MellesGriothardware.jpgWeb site. In addition, its online optics offering has been expanded to include variable-density, long-pass, notch and fluorescence-microscopy filters; lead-free achromats; achromatic retardation plates; laser-line beamsplitters; and high-power and high-contrast polarizers.

The comprehensive Melles Griot optomechanical hardware offering includes more than 850 individual items ranging from fixed and adjustable mirror, lens and laser holders and a wide variety of optical rail and mounting systems to high-resolution positioning stages with manual or motorized actuators and controllers for nanometric positioning. Component descriptions include downloadable CAD and/or SolidWorks drawing files to assist in product selection and engineering design. Most hardware components are in stock and available for immediate delivery at attractive online prices, the company said.

MellesGriotAccessories.jpgBecause it takes more than optics to equip an optics laboratory or test bench, Melles Griot said it has also added its complete line of lab accessories and laser safety eyewear to its offerings available for purchase online, including the supplies and equipment needed for the care, cleaning and proper handling of optical components, as well as infrared viewers, small tools, fasteners, handheld laser pointers, levels, digital calipers and laser safety eyewear.

Color correcting; chromatic aberration corrected.
An optical device for dividing a beam into two or more separate beams. A simple beamsplitter may be a very thin sheet of glass inserted in the beam at an angle to divert a portion of the beam in a different direction. A more sophisticated type consists of two right-angle prisms cemented together at their hypotenuse faces. The cemented face of one prism is coated, before cementing, with a metallic or dielectric layer having the desired reflecting properties, both in the percentage of reflection...
laser pointer
Handheld optical laser device containing a semiconductor or DPSS source. The output is corrected via internal collimating optics. For typical use the output is reduced to eyesafe operation power. (5 mW)
A transparent optical component consisting of one or more pieces of optical glass with surfaces so curved (usually spherical) that they serve to converge or diverge the transmitted rays from an object, thus forming a real or virtual image of that object.
A smooth, highly polished surface, for reflecting light, that may be plane or curved if wanting to focus and or magnify the image formed by the mirror. The actual reflecting surface is usually a thin coating of silver or aluminum on glass.
An optical device capable of transforming unpolarized or natural light into polarized light, usually by selective transmission of polarized rays.
