Scientists at Britain's Central Laser Facility (CLF) and HiLASE (High average power pulsed laser), a Czech state research and development center, claim to have built and tested the world's highest powered "super laser," more than ten times as powerful as similar lasers.
Scientists at DESY have set up the world's most precise ‘metronome’ for a kilometre-wide network. The timing system synchronizes a 4.7-kilometer-long laser-microwave network with 950 attoseconds precision.
Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have built a portable yet powerful microscope capable of chemically identifying individual micron-sized particles.
Researchers at Aalto University in Finland have demonstrated for the first time a new lasing technique operating at visible light frequencies, in both bright and dark modes, by utilizing metallic nanoparticles arranged in a periodic array. Their findings make possible the creation of small and ultrafast on-chip light sources.
United States President Barack Obama's signing of the year-end defense bill will increase by more than half the U.S. military's funding for laser weapon systems for fiscal year 2017.
Engineers Nick Holonyak Jr. and Milton Feng at the University of Illinois continue to enhance the remarkable properties of the transistor laser they invented in 2004. Two of their recent studies explain how they improved the fundamental modulation bandwidth of the transistor and the laser operation of the device to make possible energy-efficient, high-speed data transfer in optical and 5G wireless communications.
For the first time, scientists have generated lasers from the interaction of light and water waves. This "water-wave" laser can find future application in optofluidic devices and "lab-on-a-chip” devices for studying cell biology and delivering drugs at the nanoscale.
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.
