Hinds Instruments Birefringence Measurement technology has been adopted by industry leaders world wide to measure birefringence and characterize stress birefringence in materials with unsurpassed accuracy, resolution and repeatability. Capable of measuring optical retardation at 0.001nm resolution with noise floors as low as 0.005nm, these systems are robust, dynamic and scalable to fit the demanding requirements of your application.
Hinds Instruments is the world’s leading developer of technologies based on the principles of polarization modulation. Photoelastic modulators (PEMs) are key components in a diverse range of photonics applications. As such, Hinds has become a key contributor to a wide range of critical polarization-based measurements.
Magneto Optic Kerr Effect (MOKE) experiments are designed to detect small changes in polarization that occur because magnetic fields influence the polarization state of optical radiation as it passes through a transparent medium.
The Hinds Birefringence Imaging Microscope is ideal for measuring birefringence in biological structures, glass, crystals, and many other organic and inorganic samples.
