Dynamics of a Light Pulse Interacting with Nanosized Objects

Unveiling the spatial and temporal dynamics of a light pulse interacting with nanosized objects opens new ground for understanding nanoscale phenomena. Here, researchers resolve the time-dependent behavior of a single germanium plasmonic antenna in the mid-infrared by measuring the complex optical field response in amplitude and phase with sub-optical-cycle precision, with the promise to extend the observation … Continue reading

Producing µ-Precise Fine Tubes and Stents

PHAROS or CARBIDE femtosecond lasers from Light Conversion are the most common choice for the production of µ-precise fine tubes and stents. It is possible to process both metallic and bioresorbable stents using lasers that are equipped with a harmonics module. Moreover, femtosecond lasers eliminate costly post-processing and cleaning steps. Ultrashort laser systems are the solution for industries such as medical technology or micro-optics. To watch a … Continue reading
