Lasers Videos

  1. Low Cost, High Speed Imaging Solutions

    Xenics' message at Photonics West in 2016 is straight and to point — low cost, and high speed.

  2. Video: The Full Spectrum

    Ophir-Spiricon products have the ability to measure the output for every laser wavelength along the electromagnetic spectrum. This video provides a brief introduction of Ophir’s wide range of equipment used in different spectrum regions to measure and profile lasers.

  3. Gooch & Housego Introduces The New Fiber-QTM Fiber Coupled Modulators

    The new Fiber-QTM Fiber is a fiber coupled acousto-optic modulator (FCAOM) solution for fiber laser modulation and frequency shifting. These devices can directly control the timing, intensity, and temporal characteristics of the active output from a fiber laser, offering a wider variety of pulse shapes.

  4. Verifire™ HD Interferometer System Video Demonstration

    This video features the new Verifire™ HD Interferometer System with a high-speed 2k x 2k pixel CCD camera, and an optimized optical design to reliably measure surface features.

  5. Refractive Eye Surgery Using Fast Piezo Steering Mirrors

    This video demonstrates the use of the Piezo Drive in refractive eye surgery. These Piezo-based tilting mirrors direct the laser beam faster and more precisely than conventional scanners.

  6. Issues in Measuring Beams Coming Out of a Fiber

    There is often confusion when having to measure a beam coming out of fiber. The geometry of the situation is different, as the beam diverges when emerging from a small aperture. This video discusses the necessity of other parameters such as numerical aperture or fiber core diameter in measuring a diverging laser beam exiting a fiber.

  7. Focused Into Fiber, And New Laser Wavelengths

    Bob Struthers with PD-LD gave us a quick rundown of some of their usual products on display at DSS this year and also shared some exciting news in regards to the new laser wavelengths they now offer. He then turned it over to Tom Deberardine so we could get a closer look at PD-LD’s active fiber optic coupled component offerings.

  8. Accurate Metrology In Adverse Environments

    John Waka with Zygo started our day two DSS 2015 coverage off with an introduction to the DynaFiz™ — a dynamic laser interferometer that can essentially "freeze" vibration, enabling accurate optic metrology in environments that are too violent for traditional temporal phase shifting techniques.

  9. Optical Filter And Coating Solutions

    Jason Palidwar of Iridian Spectral kicked off our DSS exhibition coverage by giving us a closer look at what they’re showcasing this year.

  10. Custom Plano Optics: Making Laser Amplifiers for the World's Most Powerful Laser

    The world's most powerful laser needed a high precision custom optics manufacturer. In this case study, high fluence laser amplifiers were developed into a volume production process for the National Ignition Facility project.
