Light Conversion’s growth speaks for itself. The 1000th PHAROS was shipped in 2019, and only three years later, they mark the 2000th unit.
Now, the PHAROS laser has a model that features a 4 mJ pulse energy, as well as a model with <100 fs pulse duration — both at 20 W of average power.
Industry and science both show high demand for PHAROS for material processing, spectroscopy, microscopy, and many other applications. This high demand will not stop any time soon!
CNI Optoelectronic Technology Co., Ltd. (CNI) has launched multi-wavelength solid-state light engines (SLEs) for applications such as excitation of GFP/FITC, DAPI, YFP, mcherry, Cy3, Cy5, and spectrally similar fluorophores. Wavelength combinations can be selected according to requirements.
A research team has demonstrated that non-amplified femtosecond laser systems delivering 40–500 pJ individual pulses are sufficient for inducing localized cross-linking reactions within hundreds of nanometers in cross sections of non-photosensitized polymers.
Another image from Tony Hallas shows the Triangulum Galaxy (M33), located about 2.73 million light years away from Earth. This image was photographed over 11 hours, using Chroma Technology's astronomy filters.

Signal-to-noise ratio (SNR or S/N) is the ratio of the power of a signal (desired input) to the power of the background noise (undesired input).
Typically, the signal power can’t be controlled or increased. Therefore the path to improving the SNR is to reduce/filter the background noise.
In a recent paper, researchers experimentally demonstrated a fundamental cryptographic primitive, where quantum Weak Coin Flipping (WCF) can achieve theoretically perfect information security over modern communication networks.
ID Quantique (IDQ) announces enhancements to the ID281 series of Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detectors (SNSPDs). The best in single-photon detection is getting even better.
First and foremost, the new-recipe ID281 SNSPDs exhibit a considerably reduced timing jitter (uncertainty in the detection pulse arrival time, as low as < 25 ps FWHM) and recovery time (time for the detection efficiency to reach 50% of its peak after a detection event, typically < 30 ns). This means you can see more individual photons, faster and with greater precision.
Non-destructive testing (NDT) covers all the techniques used to analyze something without causing damage. Most NDT methods use visual inspection or x-ray analysis. NDT has been used in a wide variety of fields, such as food, automotive, aerospace, and semiconductors.
Photonis offers OEMs and integrators intensified cameras from Ultra-Violet (UV) to Near Infrared (NIR), as well as Short Wave Infrared cameras (SWIR) or Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) to support these challenges.
