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 [...]

Robust and reliable laser video: The gem vs. the tumble dryer

Here at Laser Quantum, we are proud of the high-quality and long-lifetimes of all of our lasers and over the previous months we have released a number of videos demonstrating just how tolerant our lasers are to shock and temperature. Today, we launch the next in the series of videos which tests the gem lasers [...]
