Introducing SLICE

Front-angle_lrVescent Photonics is excited to introduce SLICE, a new line of photonics control products. The SLICE platform is a flexible design that will allow rapid expansion of the product line as well as a great user experience with features such as a touch screen control panel and user-programmable monitor I/O. We are currently introducing the SLICE-QT, a four-channel temperature controller.

The SLICE-QT will control 4 separate thermal plants such as laser diodes, non-linear and photonic crystals, and photonic integrated circuits with user-assignable 40 W of control power. This means that you may configure it for four channels of 10 W each, one channel of 40 W, or anything in between. It will autotune to the your plant and make clever use of the touch screen and physical knobs for fast, ergonomic data entry and control. It will be feature rich, including the ability to open an external interlock if a temperature goes out of a user-defined range, a settable temperature slew rate (handy for sensitive non-linear crystals), and the ability to be externally servoed.

We’re so excited about the SLICE-QT that we’re offering two easy ways to get one in your labs. For a limited time, we will include a free* SLICE-QT with the purchase of any D2-100-HP1 high-power laser. We’re also offering a $500 discount on any orders before 30 September, 2017.

The SLICE products will be highly effective tools in your laboratory. A stand-alone temperature controller represents new capability for Vescent Photonics. As SLICE grows, we will offer a mixture of new performance and upgrades to our venerable D2 product line. We invite you to request specific functionality that will enhance your labs’ productivity.
