PicoQuant has introduced two picosecond pulsed diode lasers at 510 nm and 596 nm.
Green diode laser head with 510 nm
For the first time green laser light is not based on frequency conversion but directly emitted by the laser diode. The laser can work at any repetition rate up to 40 MHz and generate pulses as short as 130 ps (FWHM).

NanoSight will introduce NS200 nanoparticle characterization system at Pittcon 2011:
N200 is easy to use, has an optional blue laser to improve imaging capability, and fluorescence filters can be added when working with suitably labeled particles. Furthermore, the laser is triggered to reduce thermal issues with respect to the sample, restricting photobleaching during fluorescence imaging.

Scientists at Yale University have built the world's first anti-laser, in which incoming beams of light interfere with one another in such a way as to perfectly cancel each other out. The discovery could pave the way for a number of novel technologies with applications in everything from optical computing to radiology.

Cobolt introduced a true fiber pigtailed option for the Cobolt 04-01 Series of single longitudinal mode lasers. In this compact and robust fiber delivery option, the SM/PM fiber is fixed inside the hermetically sealed package using HTCure technology resulting in a permanently aligned, true fiber pigtailed laser with extremely stable output power (<3% over 8hrs) and excellent polarization extinction ratio (>100:1).

The Jenoptik Group announced its preliminary figures for 2010. The sales totaled around € 510 million (€ 473.6 million in 2009). Strong growth came from the semiconductor industry, with the automotive industry recovering faster than expected in 2010. The order intake increased by nearly 35 %. Net debt was reduced to slightly less than € 80 million.
