Using a taccor laser, metrology applications can be achieved with laser-induced ultrasound

Laser-based ultrasound spectroscopy is a method that is both non-invasive and contact-free. It is used to determine the thickness of multi-layer films with sub-nm depth resolution. Information on sound velocities, modulus of elasticity, film thickness, and interface properties can be derived by this technique. A new time domain measurement technique has been determined to overcome [...]

Ultrafast laser advances

In a recent article published by Electro Optics, advances in ultrafast laser technology are explored. With a growing market demand for ultrafast systems that provide both high peak powers and high repetition rates, manufacturers are faced with the challenge of achieving both whilst still maintaining short pulse durations. In order to overcome this factor, here at […]

venteon ultra used in two-photon microscopy

In a recent article published in the July edition of the European Biopharmaceutical Review on two-photon microscopy, Laser Quantum talks about the use of the venteon ultra few-cycle laser as an excitation source that offers an ultra-broad spectral output and different methods for GVD pre-compensation.  The venteon ultra delivers >240 mW of sub-5.5 fs short [...]

Advances in Test Equipment: Ultrafast optical sampling oscilloscope measures at femtosecond time scales

ASynchronous OPtical Sampling (ASOPS) is a ultrafast optical time-domain spectroscopy technique. This technique is a result of advancing technology and test equipment. Recently, an article published in LaserFocusWorld highlights the benefits of the approach over conventional technology and explains the technique in further details. Read the full article here. Laser Quantum’s HASSP-THz is a THz [...]

Newly released Laser Quantum joint venture paper makes editors pick!

The ‘Terahertz cyclotron resonance spectroscopy of an AlGaN/GaN heterostructure using high-field pulsed magnet and an asynchronous optical sampling technique’ paper, a joint venture between the University of Manchester, the University of Cambridge and Laser Quantum, has been chosen by American Physics Institute as its editor pick. The paper presents an innovative new instrument that allows […]

Laser frequency comb in astronomy research

Answering fundamental questions in astronomy such as the expanding universe theory, depend on the possibility of measuring the slow drift of cosmological redshifts which are inherent in any evolving universe. However, such an observation requires very high accuracy of the measured spectrograms since the expected redshifts are exceedingly small.  While modern telescopes might be able […]
