Measuring Prisms: Multiple Wavefront Channels in One Setup

Prisms assemblies are difficult optical elements to measure. Back reflections from multiple surfaces and multiple channels make laser interferometry incapable of making these measurements. Spectrally Controlled Interferometry (SCI), available from Apre Instruments, offers an easy-to-use, accurate method to measure these components for the first time. A laser light source interferometer (for example a laser Fizeau) … Continue reading

Solving a Magnetic Raman Scattering Problem

In recent work appearing in the Physical Review, Dr. Mikhail Prosnikov was investigating Magnetic Raman scattering. To calculate some of these delicate measurements in the experiments, he required stable, weakly-divergent and narrow line lasers. The torus 532 laser from Laser Quantum was the perfect tool to use to acquire accurate data and further his research. The … Continue reading

Reduce Damage from Long-Term Brillouin Imaging of Live Cells

Recent data from Maryland has shown that using a 660 nm wavelength laser can reduce absorption-mediated damage when performing long-term Brillouin imaging of live cells. The latest research, which uses the torus 660 nm and the torus 532 nm single longitudinal wave lasers by Laser Quantum, demonstrates that live cell imaging may be more efficient … Continue reading

Measuring Prisms with Apre’s Spectrally Controlled Interferometry (SCI)

Prisms are complex optical components. Transmitted wavefront performance is controlled by multiple surfaces, the angle between them, and the material’s homogeneity. Spectrally Controlled Interferometry (SCI) available from Apres Instruments enables their S-series interferometers to make prism measurement fast, easy and more accurate than conventional methods. SCI simplifies and speeds up the measurement process for S1 and … Continue reading
