EOT Introduces 40 W Fiber-to-Fiber Broadband Isolators

The 40 W Fiber-to-Fiber broadband isolators from Electro-Optics Technology (EOT) are compact, light weight, and employ EOT’s proprietary Fiber Fuse End Cap Technology, thus assuring high reliability and resistance to damage. These devices also have a wide spectral range, providing good isolation over the complete Yb+3 gain bandwidth. These components consume less space in a … Continue reading

Localization Microscopy: Overcoming the Abbe Diffraction Barrier

An article published in Wiley Online, PhotonicsViews, focuses on localization microscopy, and how high–power continuous wave lasers can be used in super-resolution microscopy. Super-resolution microscopy overcomes the Abbe diffraction barrier, thus allowing resolution greater than 200-300 nm. The article details the principles of single-molecule localization microscopy (SMLM). This technique enables improved resolution by mapping individual photon … Continue reading

Tunable/Swept Bandwidth Lasers at New Wavelengths

Although SuperLuminescent Diodes (SLDs) are the main business of Superlum Diodes, the company also offers tunable/swept bandwidth lasers called “Broadsweepers”. Superlum introduced the first compact OEM version of Broadsweeper at 840 nm with 75 nm tuning/sweeping bandwidth two years ago. Now they present new models of this device, with wavelengths centered at 790 nm (55 … Continue reading
