Latest PLIM Research Released

A recent scientific paper published in the Journal of Innovative Optical Health Sciences by The Core Imaging Facility at the University of Ulm investigates the use of fast-repetition-rate, fs-pulsed lasers to advance phosphorescence lifetime imaging microscopy (PLIM). PLIM is traditionally performed with 80 MHz Ti:Sapphire lasers; however, this paper highlights the successful application of  250 … Continue reading

Holo/Or’s Technology for Parallel Ablation or Scribing of Lines

Many applications in the solar panels and microelectronic industries require parallel ablation or scribing of lines on a flat substrate, such as scribing of electrodes or copper removal. These sorts of applications often employ Holo/Or’s Multi-Spot Beam Splitter DOE to create the spots used for the parallel writing, along with a scanner. Often, a large … 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

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
