Expansion of 06-01 series

Cobolt has introduced a new wavelength of 553nm on the Cobolt 06-01 Series of plug and play CW lasers. The 06-DPL 553nm (diode pumped laser) is available with up to 50mW and offers direct intensity modulation (analog and digital) at up to 5 kHz.


Cobolt, a Swedish manufacturer of high performance lasers, will show a range of new products at Photonics West and BiOS

Catching fleeting catalytic intermediates by high speed 785 nm NIR Raman spectroscopy

It is only in the last two decades that Raman spectroscopy has begun to realize its potential as an almost universally applicable analytical technique from materials and life sciences applications to point of care analysis. This is pri­marily thanks to the availability of compact laser sources, high sensitivity cameras and high resolution compact spectrometers.


Storming the brain

How do you image an entire brain? It’s a question that has attracted millions of pounds of investment and stumped the world’s brightest scientists and industry leaders.

Yet, the field of neurophotonics is developing at a rapid rate. We are now entering an era where researchers can image portions of the brain while live subjects carry out tasks. One day, we may be able to image an entire human brain to unlock its inner workings.


Cobolt Tor XS

Cobolt has launched the Cobolt Tor XS, a high performance Q-switched laser at 1,064nm designed for OEM integration into hand-held or portable instruments targeting LIBS applications

Gas Sensing using tunable mid-IR lasers and Photoacoustic spectroscopy (PAS)

Although the technique of Photo-Acoustic Spectroscopy (PAS) has been around for over a century, the method has been somewhat limited in sensitivity due to the microphone and laser technology. In recent years improvements have been made on both these fronts which mean that PAS is now viewed as an advanced method for very sensitive trace gas analysis and detection.
