WHITE PAPERS AND CASE STUDIES
New F-Theta Lens For Ultrashort Pulse Electronics Production
The new F-Theta lens for 532-nanometer applications is the second high-power lens for use in the green wavelength range in Jenoptik’s Silverline lens portfolio. The solid fused silica lens is especially designed for high-volume electronic production with ultrashort pulse lasers such as PCB depaneling.
Bright And Eye-Safe Machine Vision Laser
The FLEXPOINT MVpulse laser module delivers an output power of up to 100 mW and fulfills all the requirements of laser classes 1 or 2. This is achieved with an integrated microcontroller that provides a continuous wave laser in such a way that individual pulses can be generated. MV output power is five times higher than in cw operation, with the laser class specifications maintained for the entire pulse sequence.
Laser Technology: New Trick For Infrared Laser Pulses
Ordinary solid-state lasers, as used in laser pointers, generate light in the visible range. For many applications, however, such as the detection of molecules, radiation in the mid-infrared range is needed. Such infrared lasers are much more difficult to manufacture, especially if the laser radiation is required in the form of extremely short, intense pulses.
An INRS Research Team Pushes Back The Boundaries Of High-Energy Laser Pulses
Using the Advanced Laser Light Source (ALLS) facility, the research team of Professor François Légaré of the Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS) has pushed back the boundaries of high-energy pulse propagation in a nonlinear medium through the observation of high-energy multidimensional solitary states (MDSS).
Nonlinear Ionization Dynamics Of Hot Dense Plasma Observed In A Laser-Plasma Amplifier
The last decade has been marked by a series of remarkable discoveries identifying how the universe is composed. It is understood that the mysterious substance dark matter makes up 85 % of the matter in the universe.
LightForce Launches New 25W Therapy Laser
LightForce Therapy Lasers recently announced the launch of its newest laser, the 25W LightForce XPi, which allows clinicians to treat with greater accuracy, providing more consistent outcomes for patients.
Breaking The Power & Speed Limit Of Lasers
Researchers at the George Washington University have developed a new design of vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) that demonstrates record-fast temporal bandwidth. This was possible by combining multiple transverse coupled cavities, which enhances optical feedback of the laser.
