Press Releases

Microcertec is offering ceramic heat sinks for use in laser and opto-electronic systems. They are electrically insulating, chemically resistant and dimensionally stable at high temperatures.

Laser Components is offering PbSe lasers for high-resolution absorption spectroscopy. They have good tunability, and are ideal spectral sources for industrial or medical gas sensors.

Edmund Optics has introduced its new ReflX 15X Objectives, which exhibits near-diffraction limited performance. It is used in applications requiring superior image quality over a broad spectral range.

Laser Components has introduced its Si APDs, which sit alongside its pulsed laser diodes at 850nm and 905nm, also produced in house. They have gained immediate acceptance in the market.

PicoQuant has introduced its latest product developments: the diode laser PDL 808 Sepia II; the PicoHarp 300, a high-end TCSPC Module; and the PicoTA, an amplified pulsed diode laser system.

Elforlight has released the new FQ series lasers for micromachining and materials processing. They provide more than 7W average power, 1-100kHz operation, and pulse width choice of 5ns or 10ns.

Photonic Products has launched a new blue-violet wavelength (405nm) laser diode. It incorporates an internal monitor photodiode that can be utilised to accurately stabilise and control the optical output power.

Elliot Scientific has recently introduced Thales Laser’s Femtocube. With an incredibly small footprint the new laser Femtocube ultrafast laser has an average power greater than 2.5W at up to 10kHZ.

The GeoLasPro is a self-contained laser ablation system for sample introduction in high-resolution LA-ICP MS (laser ablation inductively-coupled plasma mass spectrometry). It is designed for geological and nuclear physics research.

MPB Communications has harnessed up to 1W of CW power in the 580nm yellow wavelength region from a fibre laser. It generates a narrow-line, diffraction limited, linearly polarised visible output.

Pacer Components has introduced the OVTL09LGA LEDNIUM series of high-luminance, 10W LED sources from Optek. The series is used in the automotive interior and exterior lighting, and architectural lighting markets.

Photon has added the M2 Wizard option to its NanoScan beam measurement instrument. The M2 Wizard uses a step-by-step procedure known as the Rayleigh method to measure the M2 parameter.
