Technology for Polarization Measurement

Extreme Environments

Certain Component and Solution System products available from Hinds Instruments have been adapted for use in extreme environments, including the following:

» High magnetic fields used in Tokamaks, spintonics labs, and others

» High vacuum experiments - up to 10-9

» Space environments, involving vibration as well as both low temperature and vacuum. Space readiness TRL-5, which includes vibration testing randomly to 15 Gs in each of three axes, is available for qualified customers.

We also offer custom Solution Systems for specific extreme environment applications, including:

» Birefringence measurement in high ambient temperature and/or constrained access production environments

» Real-time chiral activity process monitors in high temperature, high pressure industrial environments
