Improving Laser Micro-machining with New Modes of Polarisation

A new optical technique, capable of producing laser beams with unusual modes of electric field, has been developed by scientists at the University of Liverpool. The new technique could have a major impact on laser micro-machining, by increasing process efficiency and quality through the use of different modes of ‘polarisation' or electric fields. These are unusual states of light and difficult to produce.

Creating the Broadest Spectral, Coherent-light Source with High-harmonic Generation

For the first time, researchers have produced a coherent, laser-like, directed beam of light that simultaneously streams ultraviolet light, X-rays and all wavelengths in between (see video). One of the few light sources to successfully produce a coherent beam that includes X-rays, this new technology is the first to do so using a setup that fits on a laboratory table. more

PicoQuant Extends its Diode Laser Family

PicoQuant has added two laser heads emitting at   395 nm and 420 nm to its LDH Series.
Both laser heads are ideal for exciting e.g. porphyrin or phthalocyanin containing samples in fluorescence microscopy or fluorescence spectroscopy. With pulse durations as short as 70 ps, they are match the time resolution of mainstream detectors, yet at a price much lower than of mode-locked lasers or nanosecond flashlamps. The two laser heads are also available in a dual mode version that allows picosecond pulsed as well as continuous-wave operation. more

FIB-SEM with Laser Option

Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) has become a valuable tool for two- and three-dimensional characterization of micro- and nano-scale samples. A wide range of industry applications stand to benefit from this technology, e.g., materials research, development of pharmaceutical products, and process development in semiconductor or photovoltaic manufacturing. What they have in common: a specific region of a specimen has to be analyzed. more
