A study by Ido Kaminer of the Technion showed that quantum mechanics is important in understanding Chernkov radiation. This type of radiation causes nuclear reactors to glow. Articles in Haaretz and Nature.
Laser Quantum explains the basic principles of continuous wave (CW) laser technology in a post.
Laser Quantum is an industry leading developer of high quality, solid-state lasers, designed with end users in mind. Their systems are based on a commitment to performance excellence over extended life cycles and rugged conditions.
What parameters should be considered when choosing a laser for Raman spectroscopy:
Laser Quantum offers a series of lasers suitable for Raman spectroscopy light sources. Their ventus 532 is unrivalled in terms of its size-to-power ratio. This is their most compact 532 nm laser, and it is optimized for success in the scientific industry.

Specs may vary slightly.
The DeepCleave module from Holo/Or is a complete optical solution for cutting applications. There is no need for additional high NA objectives or other high cost optics.
Reasons to choose DeepCleave for your gas cutting application include:
Manx Precision Optics (MPO) has released a new white paper discussing ultrafast mirrors for femtosecond laser systems. Ultrafast systems require low group delay dispersion (GDD) components to access and maintain femtosecond pulse durations.
Holo/Or explains how diffractive optical lenses work by using the wave nature of light, modifying the phase of the propagating light by slowing it down in some areas of the beam vs. others, thus shaping the light using diffraction effects.
A DOE changes the phase of the light propagated through it by using micro-structure patterns fabricated onto the substrate material. Light that passes through the sunken areas in the element moves faster than light that traverses the higher areas (since light’s speed in air is faster than in the material), creating a controlled phase delay.
Holo/Or’s annual sale has begun. A discount of 15% applies on stock item orders placed before December 31st. The discount is limited to up to 3 units per part.
Sale items include:
Whether your application is microscopy, flow cytometry, PCR or NGS, the most important thing is reliably distinguishing the multiple fluorescence channels. Use Chroma Technology’s “Browse by Fluorochrome” and “Spectra Viewer” functions to match the right filters with the right fluorochromes.
Polymer-on-Glass (POG) elements from Holo/Or are the most accurate beam shaping solutions available for the low to medium power range applications. They are cost effective, and can be produced in high volumes as per customer requirements. POG elements can be either beam splitting dot / line generators or beam shaping products, including homogenizers / diffusers with flat-top distribution, broad band diffusers, and micro-lens arrays.
CIE Tristimulus Filters are highly accurate filters with small f1′ errors matching the CIE 1931 Standard Observer. Chroma Technology can provide highly accurate shape-fitting of filters to closely match irregular curves and functions.
F-Theta lenses with ZBB UV, VIS and NIR. Diffraction limited designs. Now available from IL Photonics.
❂Cameras & Imaging
The Nocturn XS camera from Photonis is a rugged, low light camera module that features high definition resolution, high sensitivity and high dynamic range with low power consumption. Powered by Photonis’s 1 inch optical format 1280×1024 pixel (SXGA) Lynx CMOS sensor, the Nocturn provides real-time imaging capabilities (from daylight to one-quarter moon scene illumination) in the visible and near infrared spectrum.
greateyes has developed the highly customized ALEX-i 2k2k camera for many applications. This camera is perfectly suited for spectroscopy and imaging applications in the VUV, EUV and X-ray range up to 20 keV.
