A new remote sensing method devised by researchers at the University of Central Florida (UCF) using fluctuations in optical "noise" could one day complement existing technologies to track hidden objects, such as Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR).
Scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) in California have developed a new anti-reflective coating to protect laser optics, and a new chemical process that makes the optics more resistant to damage.
Cobolt AB, Swedish manufacturer of high performance lasers, announces the release of a higher power model of the Cobolt TwistTM 457 nm on the 05-01 Series platform. With up to 200 mW single-frequency CW output power, the Cobolt TwistTM is perfectly suited to demanding applications in holography, Raman spectroscopy and photoluminescence. The wavelength and optical properties makes it ideal as a replacement of bulkier Ar+ lasers.
Lockheed Martin says it is set to deliver a 60 kW fiber optic laser weapon to the U.S. Army, which intends to mount it atop tactical ground vehicles to neutralize enemy drones, rockets, and mortars.
It’s the first time a non-destructive method has clearly visualized the paths of a chip’s internal wiring (just 45 nanometres — 45 millionths of a millimetre — wide) and its 34-nanometre-high transistors without distortions or deformations.
Scientists at the University of Rochester have developed a scattered-light-based optical imaging technique to record, for the first time, the complete process by which a material's surface is transformed by laser beams to such extent that the materials exhibit new and useful properties.
Researchers at Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) and its quantum research institute, QuTech, have demonstrated a first-of-its-kind on-chip microwave laser produced from a Josephson junction embedded in a superconducting microwave cavity.
This year at Photonics West, Dan Ford with the Ophir Photonics Group talked to us about the importance of achieving laser consistency.
Jeff Briton and Dragan Grubsic spoke to us about some of the challenges involved in operating pulsed laser diodes and avalanche photodiodes in LIDAR for the automotive and sensor markets.
In this video, Jimmy Green, an OEM Specialist, shares how Ophir Photonics assisted a lasik surgery company replace a plastic mode burn pre-test with an accurate laser measurement device.
This video describes how laser beam profiling with Ophir Photonics’ BeamGage showed why two different lasers running at the same power output produced different results.
In this video, Jimmy Green, an Ophir Photonics OEM Specialist, discusses an OEM solution provided to a customer that allowed for medical laser power development before and after procedures that ensured the proper outcomes.
In this video, Dick Reiley from Ophir Photonics shares how he provided a manufacturer a solution that allowed throughput to increase 4X by reducing the time required for quality inspection. This solution was specifically created for an application measuring laser diodes.
Eric Craven with Ophir Photonics provided us with a tutorial at DCS 2016 on how to co-align visible, near-infrared, and infrared laser beams through the use of a pyroelectric camera array coupled with beam profiling software.
