SYLOS Laser Started Operation in ELI-ALPS

Nobel Prize winner Prof. Gérard Mourou pushed an improvised black color button. Femtosecond pulses, each featuring ~6.6 fs duration and ~32 mJ energy running at 1 kHz repetition rate were registered and visualized by a projector in front of a big auditorium. That is how Single Cycle Femtosecond high intensity laser system SYLOS has been launched in ELI-ALPS … Continue reading

Using Selective Laser Sintering for Healthcare Applications

The latest newsletter from Access Laser discusses applications of the Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) method of Additive Manufacturing (AM) for the healthcare industry. SLS uses a bed of small plastic, glass or ceramic particles and a laser to fuse those beads together into layers of solid material forming 3-dimensional objects. This process is an ideal … Continue reading

Using Ultrafast Laser in FT-CARS

A published paper by Hashimoto et al. (2018), entitled “Ultra-Broadband Rapid-Scan Fourier-Transform CARS Spectroscopy with Sub-10-fs Optical Pulses”, leverages the benefits of products from Novanta. The experimental set-up contains a venteon ultra oscillator from Laser Quantum. The paper demonstrates ultra-broadband Fourier-Transform Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (FT-CARS) spectroscopy. The technique spanned over 3000 cm-1, particularly useful … Continue reading

New Technique Combining Expansion Microscopy and Lattice Light-Sheet Microscopy

A recent article in optics.org highlights the combination of expansion microscopy with lattice light-sheet microscopy. This new technique allows researchers to visualise spatial relationships between proteins across millimetre-scale dimensions. It counteracts many of the limitations of optical microscopy, electron microscopy, and super-resolution microscopy and is making incredible inroads into understanding the complexity of the brain. The research … Continue reading
