Creating ultra-short phase stabilised pulses for high harmonic generation (HHG)

By Thomas Binhammer, Laser Quantum
10 February 2016

Ultra-short laser pulses are increasingly interesting to researchers in many different fields of work due to the inverse relationship between the spectral bandwidth emitted from the laser and its pulse duration. For many applications the need to stabilise the carrier envelope offset at these short pulse durations is an added indispensable requisite. One such application is the use of CEP stabilised pulses in high harmonic generation (HHG).

Fluorescence spectroscopy of wine

By Edinburgh Instruments
1 December 2015

In this white paper, written by Edinburgh Instruments, learn how fluorescence spectroscopy - a fast and simple, minimally invasive and non-destructive technique - is used in the analysis of wine. The paper discusses the methods and materials used when analysing two white wine samples, and shares the results of the analysis via clear and easy to read graphic illustrations.
