Optical Flywheel Enables Slow-motion Pictures of Atoms and Molecules

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. more

Multi Color Laser Light Source for Super Resolution Microscopy

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. more
Generation of Ultra Short Laser Impulses

Generation of Ultra Short Laser Impulses

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.
