Development of a Terahertz Cyclotron Resonance Spectrometer

In a video, Dr. Darren Graham explains the development of the terahertz cyclotron resonance spectrometer at the Photon Science Institute, University of Manchester. Cyclotron resonance has been about since the 1960’s and the technique has led to the development of new semiconductor materials, producing light-emitting diodes and transistors. In order to perform the techniques, you … Continue reading

How to Achieve High Resolution and Faster Sampling in Microscopy

Fluorescence microscopy is a continually developing tool for imaging biological samples; however, the same challenges are faced throughout the microscopy world: High-resolution levels Faster sampling rates Lattice light-sheet microscopy (LLSM) is a technique that employs scanning a sample as a plane of laser light. A second excitation lens is placed on a perpendicular axis to … Continue reading

Laser Quantum Introduces Ultra-Low-Noise Laser

The newest ultra-low-noise laser, call axiom 532, from Laser Quantum lends itself to Ti:Sapphire pumping as the pump laser noise is transferred directly to the noise of the Ti:Sapphire laser. When the typical noise value is <0.02% RMS, this factor is greatly reduced, even at powers up to 12 W. The exceptional beam profile produced … 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
