The Agilent Monolithic Laser Combiner MLC 400, distributed by Laser 2000 Europe, is a perfect solution for confocal, super resolution and fluorescence microscopy. Long-life DPSS and diode lasers are efficiently combined in a single output fiber, which is coupled to the microscope. With the integrated AOTF fast switching between the wavelengths and fast regulation of the output power is possible.
The unique design includes permanent factory alignment. No more losing time with adjusting lasers instead of taking microscope images.

To measure and display ultra fast processes - ones that happen in minuscule time frames, e.g. the motion of electrons within atoms or molecules - impulses of light are utilized which have a shorter time frame as the process being analyzed.
This is only possible using lasers and the shortest laser impulses that can be generated today are measured in atto-seconds (one attosecond equals one quintillionth of a second: 10-18s). Up until now, generating such short laser impulses was only possible in special laboratories using complicated and extensive procedures.

Cobolt has introduced a higher power version of its Cobolt Jive 561nm. The laser is available on the 05-01 Series single frequency platform with an output power of 500 mW CW. 200 mW and 300 mW powers are also available on the same platform. Lower power versions (25 mW-150 mW) can be found on the 04-01 Series SLM platform.

Application of Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) to a broad range of research, and biological systems in particular, is hampered by two longstanding technical problems: mechanical drift and finding sparsely distributed samples. By adapting ideas from the optical-trapping community, we have made significant progress in addressing both of these issues, including a 100-fold improvement in the stability of AFM at ambient conditions.

Designed to record bursts of images at an unprecedented speed of 4.5 million frames per second, an innovative X-ray camera being built with STFC's engineering expertise will help a major new research facility shed light on the structure of matter. The device will be delivered to the European XFEL (X-ray Free-Electron Laser) next year and will contribute to drug discovery and other vital research once this facility starts operating in 2015.

Newport reported it has entered into an agreement to acquire High Q Technologies, a developer and manufacturer of ultrafast lasers. Terms of the transaction, which is anticipated to close before the end of the third quarter, were not disclosed. High Q, headquartered in Rankweil, Austria, expects 2011 revenues of approximately US-$ 20 million, with threefourths of its sales to customers in Europe.

Most experiments need to be repeated at least three times for data accuracy and statistical significance. Whether you are using a lamp system, LED or laser source, measuring the illumination power is a critical step in ensuring consistent conditions. In this short video presentation, Dr. Kavita Aswani is introducing a power measurement system enabling consistent and repeatable illumination throughout research experiments.
