Two New Ultrafast, CW Lasers from Laser Quantum

Laser Quantum is introducing two innovative new continuous wave and ultrafast laser solutions: helixx – A femtosecond laser with a unique 250 MHz repetition rate, producing superior results in two photon microscopy. The helixx is well suited to maximise the decay times of typical fluorophores, reducing photobleaching and phototoxicity. axiom 532 – A new addition … Continue reading

CNI Lasers for LiDAR Applications

Light detection and ranging (LiDAR) is a method of measuring distance, by irradiating a target with a pulse laser and then measuring the reflected pulse with a sensor. Different laser return time and wavelength can be used to make a digital 3D representation of the target. LiDAR is sometimes called 3D laser scanning, which is a … Continue reading

Laser Quantum Introduces axiom 660 Integrated, High Power CW Laser

Laser Quantum’s new axiom 660 laser has a new architecture that delivers high CW power whilst incorporating all of the active optics within the laser lead. The axiom lends itself to easy integration into equipment due to its ultra-compact power supply unit, without the complexities associated with fibre delivery. The axiom 660 is ideally suited to a range of applications including … Continue reading

opus1064 replaces ventus1064

As part of Laser Quantum’s continuous improvement program, the opus1064 wavelength range has been extended and now covers 500 mW to 10W. The opus incorporates automated power control, enhanced optical performance, the latest firmware and software as well as the standard features such as thermal management and remote access. As a result the ventus1064 is now … Continue reading

PRAXIS Application for AL50-S-WCCL Laser

While many nations don’t have large space programs, most economic zones participate in a centralized, multi-national group for launching and maintaining satellites (such as the European Space Agency). These near-earth satellites, and especially deep space probes (Deep Space 1 – NASA & SMART 1 – ESA), heavily rely on plasma thrusters for navigation during their missions. One of the best … Continue reading

Optical Trapping with opus 1064

Introducing the newest optical trapping animation from Laser Quantum, a world-class continuous wave and ultrafast laser manufacturer based in Stockport, UK. This animation demonstrates how to achieve the best results from your optical trapping set-up. Traps are microscope based, and a tightly focussed laser beam is required to give the smallest possible cross-sectional area for … Continue reading
