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.

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.

The world's most accurate metronome keeps stroke to an incredible 10 quintillionth of a second. The device enables slow-motion pictures from the world of molecules and atoms, scientists from the Center for Free-Electron Laser Science (CFEL) in Hamburg, Germany, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) report. The metronome, an ultrashort pulse laser, acting as an optical flywheel, is currently the most precise clock generator on short time scales, writes the research team headed by DESY scientist Prof. Franz X.
