Demonstrations provide researchers and practitioners with an exciting and interactive opportunity to present their systems, artifacts and/or research prototypes, either at a regular session or at the technical exhibition. In any case, it is required to avoid a commercial format, even if the demo consists of presenting a business product or service. Instead, the presentation should focus on technical aspects.
Any written support materials may be distributed locally but not published in the proceedings. Authors who already present a paper at the conference may apply for a demonstration, to complement but not to replace their paper presentation. Demonstrations can also be made by sponsor companies or as a mixed initiative involving researchers and industrial partners.
Demonstrations are based on an informal setting that encourages presenters and participants to engage in discussions about the presented work. This is an opportunity for the participants to disseminate practical results of their research and to network with other applied researchers or business partners.

Concerning the format of the demo, we can accommodate it either as a demonstration in a booth (physical area of 4 sq. meter, with a table and 2 chairs) at the exhibition area, as a poster or as a 20 min oral presentation at a session especially set up for demonstrations. It is also possible to organize the presentation of the same demo in more than one format. Please contact the event secretariat.

A Faster, More Accurate Way of Characterizing Cube Beamsplitters using the Agilent Cary 7000 Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer (UMS)


Andreas Kerstan
Independent Researcher
Brief Bio
Andreas Kerstan received a master’s degree in Natural Science from University of Bochum between 2001 and 2006. His master thesis is entitled Biochemical Investigation of cyanobacterial Photosystems. In 2010 he finished his PhD studies on Physikal Chemistry with the thesis: Investigation of specific Protein-Protein-Interactions by the Example of hGBP1 and Structural Characterization of Protein-resistant Peptid-Thiols , under Prof Dr. Wöll supervision. He developed a series of post-doctoral research until 2011, when he joined Agilent Technologies as an Applikations Chemist for Molecular Spectroscopy (UV Vis und FTIR). From August 2013 till today Andreas Kerstan is a Product Specialist for Molecular Spectroscopy at Agilent Technologies for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Cube beamsplitters (CBS) are critical optical components that have a wide variety of uses in consumer products, high-tech micro positioning equipment, and fi ber optic based telecommunication systems. This application note describes in situ, automated and unattended, transmission, reflection and absorptance measurements of CBS using an Agilent Cary 7000 Universal Measurement Spectrophotometer (UMS). Spectral information obtained is shown to provide useful insight for optical engineers at the design phase, and provide QA/QC departments better control metrics during fi nal testing; all obtained at highly productive rates amenable to routine volume analysis demands.

KEY WORDS: Laser, Micromachining, Materials Sciences

This tool combines the flexibility and accessibility of a typical research grade experimental setup with the stability, reliability, and ease of operation of a fully developed industrial fabrication system.

The Laser µFAB can be integrated with various types of lasers giving the user the capability to machine virtually any dielectric, conductive, and ceramic materials. With the aid of software written specifically to meet the requirements of laser micromachining, two- and three-dimensional microstructures can easily be patterned. Newport’s Laser µFAB is the ideal solution for the most advanced research in materials science and device physics.
