In this ever advancing technology-led world, the dimensions of functional objects are decreasing and it is critical that scientists understand at both a micro and nanoscopic level the dynamics of the physical processes. The traditional method to understanding these processes is ultrafast optical time-domain spectroscopy (TDS) and various techniques within this method. Asynchronous optical sampling […]
Noncontact three-dimensional mapping of intracellular hydromechanical properties by Brillouin microscopyRecent studies by G. Scarcelli et al. detail how our torus 532 is being used to develop a label free microscopy technique based on Brillouin scattering, capable of imaging intracellular processes with vastly improved optical resolution. Intracellular processes such as the interaction between the liquid and solid phases in the cytoplasm have a critical role [...]
Measurement of two-photon excitation spectra of fluorescence proteins with nonlinear Fourier-transform spectroscopy
Work published by Hashimoto et al., from Riken Advanced Science Institute, Japan, makes use of our venteon ultra laser (formally Known as Venteon OS) from Laser Quantum as part of their work into ‘Measurement of two-photon excitation spectra of fluorescence proteins with nonlinear Fourier-transform spectroscopy.’ Biological imaging of live cells is an important part of […]
Last week we exhibited at The European Frequency and Time Forum in York for the European launch of the taccor comb; our first 1GHz complete frequency comb. The exhibition welcomed a niche scientific community of researchers and students from all over the world and the taccor comb certainly attracted many people to our stand, sparking discussions about solutions for frequency comb applications. In celebration of the launch, we hosted a cake reception at our booth and a prize draw competition to win a tablet!
Here at Laser Quantum, we encourage charity events throughout the year to raise money for local and national charities to help grow the community spirit within our company and foster goodwill. Following on from last year, Laser Quantum has put together a team of thirty keen runners divided into two teams of young pups and […]
