The Benefits of Dual-Comb Spectroscopy

Dual-comb spectroscopy, sometimes abbreviated to DCS, is an advanced spectroscopic technique that deploys two coherent laser sources with discrete, equally-spaced frequency lines. A laser source with this type of spectrum is defined as a frequency comb. The primary benefit of using two frequency combs is that your sample’s spectral response can be quickly assessed on […]

Continuous Wave Lasers: Understanding the Basics

Laser technology as we know it was first envisaged on a park bench in Washington in 1951, when Charles Townes thought-up the concept of microwave amplification by stimulated emission of radiation (MASER). Within ten years, this idea had germinated, yielding the first solid-state laser with a ruby gain medium. Sixty years of near non-stop development […]

How to Choose a Raman Spectroscopy Laser

Raman spectroscopy is a non-destructive analytical technique that yields detailed information about the chemical structure, crystallinity, and phase of sample matter. It can also be used to investigate various molecular interactions based on the scattering of incident light. Lasers have proven incredibly valuable as light sources for Raman scattering due to their high intensity and […]

What is Time-Resolved Electron Microscopy?

Electron microscopy (EM) is a powerful imaging technique renowned for its outstanding spatial resolution. It surpasses the theoretical maximum resolving power of conventional microscopy by several orders of magnitude, enabling researchers to probe nanoscale structures and to resolve the chemical composition of samples with unprecedented precision. However, standard EM systems are typically unsuited to monitoring […]

Enhancing two photon microscopy

Two-photon microscopy has many advantages over conventional microscopy including; minimal photo-bleaching effect and sample damage, higher imaging depth of live cells, higher excitation efficiency, and simultaneous excitation of multiple fluorophores with the promotion of autofluorescence. Ultrashort (<10 fs) pluses enhance the two-photon microscopy technique. The peak power for a given average output is much higher […]
