New cancer detection techniques via microscope

Oxford Nanoimaging, a UK-based super-resolution imaging company, has showcased a groundbreaking new desktop microscope which allows scientists to see individual molecules in living cells. Their super-resolution microscope can measure molecules as close as 20 nanometers apart; by comparison, a sheet of paper is around 100,000 nm in thickness. ONI hopes to use this imaging technique […]

The next generation ultrafast amplifier

The venteon OPCPA is an exceptional ultrafast amplifier, which delivers few-cycle, multi-µJ level pulses without additional nonlinear compression. As industry experts in ultrafast technology, we have created the only commercial ultrafast amplifier on the market that combines unique few-cycle pulse duration <8 fs, µJ level energy and a high repetition rate of up to 4 [...]

OPCPA – An explanation and an animation

Laser pulse amplification has for a long time relied upon multi-pass concepts through inverted gain media with limited bandwidth. This concept allows high energy pulses, but due to band narrowing effects and thermal load, the pulses have a long duration and low repetition rates. Optical parametric chirped pulsed amplification has the advantage of a single [...]

Quantitative analysis of gases

Raman spectroscopy is a powerful technique with numerous analytical applications. Our recent whitepaper ‘Quantitative laser Raman spectroscopy of gases’, looks at how Raman systems can be used to measure gas mixture compositions with high measurement precision, sensitivity and trueness. It discusses how the gem 532, finesse 532 and opus 532 can be used as the [...]

Product of the month: venteon OPCPA

The first commercial Optical Parametric Chirped Pulse Amplifier (OPCPA) system provides a unique combination of a few-cycle pulse duration of <8 fs, with energy in the µJ-regime at a high repetition rate of 200 kHz or higher. The excellent output stability and the ability for CEP stabilisation turns this amplifier system into the ideal source [...]
