The​​ gem 640​​ laser from​​ Laser Quantum​​ is an excellent choice for super-resolution microscopy. The benefits of gem 640 include:

  • Superior SM fiber​​ coupling

  • Unified compact platform

  • Power > 500 mW

  • Excellent wall plug efficiency

Superlum Diodes has launched the OEM Broadsweepers at 790 nm, 840 nm and 930 nm. These compact, wavelength-swept, tunable lasers are designed to work in OEM applications. They have a maximum sweep rate up to 10,000 nm/s and optical power up to 3 mW (up to 20 mW after boosting). Their tuning range is from 55 nm up to 110 nm, spectral linewidth below 0.05 nm, +12 VDC operating voltage. They also feature digital control of performance parameters. When combined, they cover spectral range from 765 nm to 985 nm without gaps.

Researches are using the​​ PHAROS laser from Light Conversion​​ to​​ control the spatial distribution of functional groups on 2D materials. They have demonstrated periodic modulation of graphene doping using laser-induced periodic surface structures (LIPSS).

The gem laser family from Laser Quantum is ideal for super resolution microscopy methods, such as Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM). Specifications of this laser include:

  • More the 500 mW power

  • Wide range of wavelengths

  • Excellent beam quality (M² of < 1.2, TEM00)

World-Innovators-Awards-2020-Light-Conversion--807x504

Two of​​ Light Conversion’s products ―​​ CARBIDE 80 W, 800 µJ laser with BiBurst​​ and​​ Industrial Grade Optical Parametric Amplifier I-OPA​​ ― are recognized among the best by the 2020 Laser Focus World Innovators Awards.

CO2 lasers, such as​​ the L4-G and L3-LS lasers from Access Laser,​​ are proven tools for material inspection via spectroscopic techniques. Recently atomic force microscopy (AFM) and scattering scanning nearfield optical microscopy (s-SNOM) have gained traction due to their complementary setups.

PHAROS laser photo

Researchers used a PHAROS laser from Light Conversion​​  to stimulate pre-selected distributed sets of neurons with a single-cell resolution by holographic two-photon (2P) optogenetic photostimulation.

Positive GDD compensation in wavelength-tunable optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) exploit the negative nonlinearities for the first time, using the optical parametric oscillator pumped by the second harmonic of Yb:KGW based femtosecond oscillator (FLINT from​​ Light Conversion).

ORPHEUS-MIR photo

ORPHEUS-MIR is a versatile system optimized for the efficient generation of broadband, mid-IR pulses from Light Conversion.

Features of the ORPHEUS-MIR:

  • Broad bandwidth up to 500 cm-1

  • Broad tuning range 2500 nm – 11,000 nm

  • Short pulse duration < 100 fs

  • Up to 40 W pump power

  • Up to 2 mJ pump energy

  • Auxiliary broadband output at ~2000 nm

  • Optional narrowband extension up to 15,000 nm

  • Optional CEP stability

As the sensitivity of the interferometer continues to improve, frequency of detection rises and​​ Access Laser​​ stands proudly in contributing to this progression. A key improvement that enabled the original 2015 Nobel Prize winning detection was using their light sources, including​​ L50-ST-WCCL​​ to help thermally compensate the massive optical elements which form the interferometer.

gem 561 photo

The gem 561 1 W from Laser Quantum is an efficient, high power yellow laser. This laser provides market leading power with an ultra-precise, TEM00 beam specification. This enables uniform energy distribution or tight focus at this key wavelength for single molecule localization microscopy.

Using a PHAROS laser from Light Conversion, a research team demonstrated a record > 45× single-stage pulse compression and supercontinuum generation in XUV.
