The Benefits of Dual-Comb Spectroscopy

Dual-comb spectroscopy, sometimes abbreviated to DCS, is an advanced spectroscopic technique that deploys two coherent laser sources with discrete, equally-spaced frequency lines. A laser source with this type of spectrum is defined as a frequency comb. The primary benefit of using two frequency combs is that your sample’s spectral response can be quickly assessed on […]

Continuous Wave Lasers: Understanding the Basics

Laser technology as we know it was first envisaged on a park bench in Washington in 1951, when Charles Townes thought-up the concept of microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation (MASER). Within ten years, this idea had germinated, yielding the first solid-state laser with a ruby gain medium. Sixty years of near non-stop development […]

How to Choose a Raman Spectroscopy Laser

Raman spectroscopy is a non-destructive analytical technique that yields detailed information about the chemical structure, crystallinity, and phase of sample matter. It can also be used to investigate various molecular interactions based on the scattering of incident light. Lasers have proven incredibly valuable as light sources for Raman scattering due to their high intensity and […]

What is Time-Resolved Electron Microscopy?

Electron microscopy (EM) is a powerful imaging technique renowned for its outstanding spatial resolution. It surpasses the theoretical maximum resolving power of conventional microscopy by several orders of magnitude, enabling researchers to probe nanoscale structures and to resolve the chemical composition of samples with unprecedented precision. However, standard EM systems are typically unsuited to monitoring […]

Need a highly reliable laser with excellent beam qualities for Raman spectroscopy?

The ventus 532 is built for Raman spectroscopy applications, with an M2 close to unity allowing for a tighter focal point hence a higher intensity. Raman spectroscopy is a weak process, so you need a high intensity IR necessary to obtain a good signal​. The tight focal point is also important for spatial resolution. If you want to […]
