Glaz linear array cameras

The Glaz LineScan-I-Gen2 is a high-speed linear array camera with scan rates up to 9000 lines/s. The LineScan-I-Gen2 and is the latest generation camera. It combines data compression and high USB transfer rates to measure up to 50,000 lines without skipping lines. The LineScan-I-Gen2 also features an improved ultra-low noise design to support the latest generation of linear array sensors.

The Glaz LineScan-LS and LineScan-EC are low-speed linear array cameras with scan rates up to 100 lines/s. The LineScan-LS offers a low-noise design and the LineScan-EC a more cost-effective alternative. These cameras are ideal for geneal spectroscopy and spectrometer upgrades.

Several different CMOS and InGaAs sensors are supported. Two application-specific modes are supported: Advanced synchronisation (PulseSync) and large temporal fill factors (TimeFill).

The cameras do not require any additional PC processing cards or hardware and interface directly with a PC via high-speed USB. Combined with powerful PC-based data processing software, a measuring system can be configured quickly. The processing software provides a flexible script-based environment to define calculations using data from several cameras. Basic measurements can be performed with Glaz UI - a freeware PC user-interface. Alternatively, Glaz LabView driver can be used for more complex measurements and experimental set-ups.

Glaz photo diode digitizer

The Glaz-PD is a dual-cahnnel fast photo diode digitizer. It was designed for fs-spectroscopic applications, to distinguish between pumped/unpumped (odd/even) scans. The Glaz-PD is typically used together with the Glaz LineScan PulseSync cameras. The Glaz processing software can be configured to automatically sort odd/even scans in ultra-fast spectroscopy when combining the Glaz-PD and PulseSync cameras. Besides sorting, the Glaz-PD can be used to perform pulse-to-pulse normalisation to compensate for Laser pulse energy fluctuations. It uses a novel analog pulse-forming front-end to reduce measurement noise to less than 200 uOD.

Glaz beam-profiling

The Glaz-BP is an economic beam-profiling camera. Glaz UI provides the user interface. It can automatically detect the beam center and the beam's main and minor axes and there is no need to rotate the camera.

Glaz UI

Glaz UI is the graphical user interface for all Glaz devices. It can be used to perform basic spectroscopic measurements, debug Glaz LineScan scripts or perform beam-profiling with the Glaz-BP. It also serves as a platform for application-specific user interfaces. Application-specific user interfaces can be added on request.
