Welcome to the ALT webshop

  • # Opto-Mechanics

    Opto Mechanics

    This is a broad category in our program that includes optical mounts and construction components, mechanical devices, kits that make it easy to buy a popular set of components or a set of components that can be assembled to perform a specific function. It also includes general laboratory supplies and tools.

  • # Optics


    Includes single element optical components as well as optical components that have polarization properties. Furthermore multi-element systems like beam expanders and objective lenses as well as interferometers, optical isolators, fiber collimators, reference cells, modulators, and other optical devices can be found by choosing the corresponding link.

  • # Lightsources


    Our light sources product range can be seperated into coherent and incoherent sources. The coherent source category includes laser diodes, laser diode modules, DPSS lasers, tunable lasers, HeNe lasers, and femtosecond lasers, while the incoherent source link brings you to a selection of LEDs, Supercontinuum white light, and broadband SLD sources. All of our light sources are supported by an extensive line of mounts, sockets, TEC controllers, and current controllers.

  • # Fiber Optics

    Fiber optics

    ALT offers an industry-leading selection of bare optical fiber and fiber optic patch cords as standard stock items. In addition, our supplier Thorlabs does manufacture custom fiber patch cords that can be ordered and shipped within 24 hours. Our fiber products are supported by a specialized line of optomechanical components and fiber components. Fiber optics is a large category that includes collimators, polarization controllers, couplers, WDMs, circulators, attenuators, and all of the tools and supplies needed to connectorize, inspect, and clean fiber and fiber components.

  • # Positioning Systems

    Positioning Systems

    Positioning products are separated into manual and motorized linear and rotation stages, multiaxis platforms, actuators and fine-adjustment screws, all for sub-micron positioning. For nanopositiong there is a broad range of piezo products, including ultrasonic- and piezowalk motors. Both the motorized stages and the piezo products are supported by a complete line of controllers. ALT supports custom and OEM motion control applications, also for vacuum and non-magnetic environments.

  • # Vibration Control

    Vibration Control

    We carry a wide range of optical tables, workstations, breadboards and support systems with rigid, passive, or (piezo) active vibration damping options. Custom dimensions and OEM projects can be handled easily. Our vibration control products can be completed with enclosure systems, faraday cages, shelfs, casters and many other accessories.

  • # Instruments


    ALT offers an extensive selection of instruments that measure the properties of light. Our versatile power and energy meters can be used with many sensors in order to make NIST-traceable power and energy measurements. If the convenience of a meter is not desired, our selection of detectors includes basic photodiodes (uncalibrated and calibrated), photodetectors (biased, amplified, and avalanche), CCD and CMOS arrays, position detectors, integrating spheres, and photomultiplier tubes. The beam characterization program contains beam profilers (camera and scanning slit), wavefront sensors, spectrometers, and interferometers. Last but not least there is a selection of instruments used to measure and control the polarization of light.

  • # Bio-Life Science

    Bio-Life Sience

    Our Bio-Life Science tools include a diverse range of micromanipulators, microscope sample positioners, (piezo)scanning stages, motion control systems and modular opto-mechanical building blocks for microscopy life science research. Many of them can be used to modify commercial microscopes or to construct a custom imaging system when combined with optomechanical & optical components, light sources, detectors and instruments of our programm.

Our mission is to support scientists, researchers and engineers with
state-of-the-art products they need for pioneering research, development and engineering.
