Laser Quantum has recently been a partner in the EU framework 7 project – Metrocomb – which has now successfully concluded. With  partner organisations; Heriot Watt University, LO Laseroptik GmbH, Raicol Crystals, Radiant Light SL, Universite de Neuchatel, Fraunhofer UK Research Ltd, and M-Squared Lasers, the Metrocomb project aimed to  develop frequency comb based spectroscopy […]

Laser Quantum lasers help investigate greener fuels

The ventus 532 and finesse 532 continuous wave lasers from Laser Quantum have been used to investigate biofuels evaporation dynamics. In this whitepaper, two techniques are reported to study biofuel single droplets; the first is Electrodynamic Balance (EDB) which used the ventus 532, an ideal laser for such an application due to its fully controllable […]

Read the latest paper by J. Ahrens et al. on Multipass OPCPA system at 100 kHz pumped by CPA-free solid-state amplifier

Abstract: ‘We present a compact few-cycle 100 kHz OPCPA system pumped by a CPA-free picosecond Nd:YVO4 solid-state amplifier with all-optical synchronisation to an ultra-broadband Ti:Sapphire oscillator. This pump approach shows an exceptional conversion rate into the second harmonic of almost 78%. Efficient parametric amplification was realised by a two stage double-pass scheme with following chirped mirror […]

Ultrafast optical sampling oscilloscope

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 microscopy

Recent 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 [...]
