Using a taccor laser, metrology applications can be achieved with laser-induced ultrasound

Laser-based ultrasound spectroscopy is a method that is both non-invasive and contact-free. It is used to determine the thickness of multi-layer films with sub-nm depth resolution. Information on sound velocities, modulus of elasticity, film thickness, and interface properties can be derived by this technique. A new time domain measurement technique has been determined to overcome [...]

Ultrafast laser advances

In a recent article published by Electro Optics, advances in ultrafast laser technology are explored. With a growing market demand for ultrafast systems that provide both high peak powers and high repetition rates, manufacturers are faced with the challenge of achieving both whilst still maintaining short pulse durations. In order to overcome this factor, here at […]

Product of the month: opus 660

The opus 660 laser has proved ideal for imaging living cells and tissue using the STimulated Emission Depletion (STED) microscopy technique, with the only commercially available 1.5 W high power 660 nm beam, the opus 660 is able to create the STED de-excitation needed to create a sharp undepleted fluorescent image. By controlling the red STED laser […]

Could life exist beyond planet Earth?

Today is Halloween, and what better way to celebrate then with a spooky story from out of space. Discoveries have recently been made by a group of astronomers which indicate that life could exist on other planets. The researchers have been watching 2.5 million stars, of which 234 have been giving off “strange modulations”, suggesting […]

Understanding mechanisms underlying the neural processes by flyception

Dr.Takeo Katsuki, an assistant project scientist at the Kavli Institute at the University of California, San Diego, Dr. Dhruv Grover, assistant project scientist, and Dr. Ralph J. Greenspan, in whose lab they all work, have developed a project to further investigate neural processes in flies. There are deep parallels between flies, vertebrates and even humans […]
