Access Laser​​ released a new version of the​​ Line Tracker software​​ enabling power stability of +1%, including:​​ 

  • Upgraded installer that is more streamlined/easily used​​ 

  • Elimination of program latency when operating for extended periods of data acquisition​​ 

  • Improved profiling speed

CO2 lasers from​​ Access Laser​​ function as gas sensors based on photoacoustic spectroscopy principles, using wavelength tunability over​​ the molecular fingerprint region (~1110–875 cm-1). This technique is explained in​​ CO2 Laser — Optimisation and Application.

The​​ venteon boost oscillator is the optimized version of the venteon power. It provides an average output power of​​ >900 mW, corresponding to a pulse energy of >11 nJ at 80 MHz repetition rate. This represents the highest values delivered by any venteon oscillator. The venteon boost delivers a measured pulse duration of <12 fs and a Fourier-limited pulse duration of <10​​ fs. Available from​​ Laser Quantum.
