Fogale Nanotech assigns UK distributor
null Armstrong Optical
Fogale Nanotech of France, a supplier in the field of ultra-high accuracy dimensional metrology, has appointed Armstrong Optical of Northants, UK as its exclusive distributor for the UK and Ireland
Operating in the fields of surface profilometry including phase shift and white light interferometry, Fogale Nanotech is acknowledged for delivering systems of the highest quality and has established a reputation for supplying standard systems as well as custom solutions into widely diverse industry sectors, says Armstrong Optical.
These include such areas as advanced packaging, data storage, fundamental material science research, Mems applications, telecommunications, classical optics and electronics and semiconductor technologies.
Of note in the field of Mems research is the option to perform dynamic characterisation of vibrating Mems.
The fully automated measurement allows precise evaluation of both in-plane and out-of-plane vibration mode shapes and deformations in the frequency range from 100Hz to 2MHz.
Amplitude and vibration phase maps can be generated for direct comparison with finite element simulations.
The behaviour of Mems can be easily tested under controlled environmental conditions (temperature, vacuum, partial gas pressures) using the specially developed Vacuum Box arrangement in conjunction with long working distance Mirau interferometric objectives and stroboscopic illumination.
Armstrong Optical represents a variety of photonics manufacturers in the field of optical metrology and thermal imaging and provides product support and consultancy services to end-users in academia and industry across a broad range of application areas.
Armstrong Optical has unveiled handheld thermography cameras that are designed to provide a solution to all thermal measurement requirements and are ideal for use in various maintenance environments.
Armstrong Optical is now offering a laser microscope vibrometer from Sios Mebtechnik that is designed for dynamic studies of micro structures, MEMS and cantilevers.
Armstrong Optical has released an optical controller to operate in conjunction with the Precitec Optronik range of non-contact surface-profiling and thickness-measurement systems.
Armstrong Optical is to showcase products from its range of optical metrology systems and optical components at Photonex 2009 on 14-15 October in Coventry.
The IR236 imaging system from Armstrong Optical is currently playing a part in the detection of swine fever sufferers at several major international airports across the globe.
