MKS Instruments Announces Ophir® Ariel, Ultra-Compact Laser Power Meter For Measuring High Power Industrial Lasers In Confined Spaces
MKS Instruments, Inc. (NASDAQ: MKSI), a global provider of technologies that enable advanced processes and improve productivity, has announced the Ophir® Ariel, a self-contained, ultra-compact laser power meter for measuring high power industrial lasers up to 8KW. Designed for OEM and end-user applications in closed and confined spaces, such as additive manufacturing, metal cutting, and welding, the Ariel power meter is a robust, battery-powered device that requires no water or fan cooling and is small enough to fit in the palm of your hand.
Optimal Information About The Invisible
With laser may radiate to measure precisely where an object is located, or if it changes its position. Normally, however, you need a clear, unclouded view of this object - and this requirement is not always met.
Record-Breaking Laser Link Could Help Us Test Whether Einstein Was Right
Scientists from the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) and The University of Western Australia (UWA) have set a world record for the most stable transmission of a laser signal through the atmosphere.
Crystal Structures In Super Slow Motion
Laser beams can be used to change the properties of materials in an extremely precise way. This principle is already widely used in technologies such as rewritable DVDs. However, the underlying processes generally take place at such unimaginably fast speeds and at such a small scale that they have so far eluded direct observation.
Recycle Metals Instead Of Extracting Natural Resources - With Laser-Based Sensor Technology
To strengthen the competitiveness of the industry in terms of raw material supply, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT and Cronimet developed Ferroleg. GmbH jointly developed a laser-based sorting process for metal scrap as part of the BMBF-funded project »PLUS«. A new sensor makes the recycling of metallic raw materials many times more efficient than was previously possible.
Scientists Use Diamonds To Generate Better Accelerator Beams
Beam-driven wakefield acceleration approaches are promising candidates for future large-scale machines, including X-ray free electron lasers and linear colliders, as they have the potential to improve efficiency and reduce operation cost.
Researchers Develop Laser-Based Process To 3D Print Detailed Glass Objects
Researchers have developed a new laser-based process for 3D printing intricate parts made of glass. With further development, the new method could be useful for making complex optics for vision, imaging, illumination or laser-based applications.
