1 GHz Laser Quantum laser and finesse pure CEP used to create a frequency comb

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Recently published work by Brigham Young University, Utah, USA, has been conducted using Laser Quantum’s 1 GHz laser (gigajet) alongside its finesse pure CEP laser to create a frequency comb. Frequency combs are instrumental to precise laser frequency measurements and have led to giant steps forward in research in applications including; metrology, atomic clocks, […]

Stimulated Raman scattering in laser technology

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) is a third-order nonlinear optical effect that is used in laser technology either to shift the wavelength emission of a laser (‘Raman laser’) or to provide optical amplification of an input beam (‘Raman amplifier’). Since the early 2000s, Raman amplifiers have been widely used in optical fibres for telecom applications, […]

Using the ventus in Laser Tweezers Raman Spectroscopy (LTRS)

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Unfortunately, one in two people born after 1960 in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. Typical large-scale analysis of cancer cells means individual cell attributes are averaged and, therefore, single cell detection is of real interest. The current process involves individual analysis of manually trapped cells which […]

Have you seen the gem vs. the wacker plate yet?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Last week was the launch of our latest video from our ‘Robust and Reliable’ laser series. In this video we test the gem laser’s ability to survive after the ultimate vibration test: buried in sand and flattened with a wacker plate, an instrument used by builders. The gem laser felt the force and power […]
