The laser operates in fundamental mode with beam quality M2 < 1.05 for both beams. The beam shape is recorded at the output of the oscillator (magnified image of the output coupler) on a WinCamD-LCM-NE 1” beam profiler at the nominal operation point of the laser with 3.7 A pump current, approx. 7.8 W total pump power and 440 mW average output power from each comb.

Single laser emits high-power dual comb femtosecond pulses

The new development paves the way for portable dual-comb light sources for applications such as spectroscopy and precision distance measurement

Plasma monitoring with modular, high-resolution spectroscopy

This article is brought to you by: 

A modular spectroscopy setup based on an Ocean Insight HR series high resolution spectrometer was used to monitor changes in argon plasma emission following the introduction of different gases to a plasma chamber. The measurements demonstrated the viability of modular spectroscopy components to acquire plasma emission spectra in real time from a plasma chamber. Plasma characteristics determined from these emission spectra can be used for monitoring and controlling plasmabased processes.

Every grain counts

How will the world feed 10 billion people by 2050 with no new land for agriculture? Greg Blackman speaks to machine builder Bühler about how optical sensing can maximise yield in grain processing

Real-time monitoring of LED greenhouse lighting

Controlling the quality and yield of crops will be crucial elements of increased food production. Growing crops in greenhouses and vertical farms (greenhouse factories) will allow us to better control the process of growing food and, in the case of vertical farms, move food production closer to the consumer (vertical farms can be integrated into existing structures such as warehouses). In greenhouses, LEDs are a popular lighting option to provide the spectral energy to crops for photosynthesis and other growth processes.

This whitepaper will explore how optical sensing is used for real-time monitoring of LED greenhouse lighting, and how this can be used to manage colour and power output.

Spectroelectrochemistry Applications and Instruments

This article is brought to you by: 

Spectroelectrochemistry is an extremely valuable tool to study any mechanism that involves an electron transfer. By combining the best of both the electrochemistry and spectroscopy worlds, it allows researchers to probe a range of reactions and extract valuable information that each technique could not achieve on its own.
