One of the secrets to making tiny laser devices such as opthalmic surgery scalpels work even more efficiently is the use of tiny semiconductor particles, called quantum dots.
A team of European physicists recently presented a new approach to manipulating photons flowing inside metamaterial waveguides in order to strengthen the optical force between them. The new design could someday find its way into highly-advanced optical sensors and nanomotors.
The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the Nobel Prize in Physics 2017.
Scientists at the Institute of Applied Physics, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, have designed a split-disk whispering gallery mode (WGM) resonator that controls the tunability of lasers by stretching a flexible substrate.
Researchers at TU Wien (Vienna) have developed a type of cloaking technology that renders opaque materials invisible by letting the flow of light pass through the medium unperturbed.
Scientists at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem have successfully demonstrated a fully-integrated nanoscale photonic device that can analyze a single fluorescent bacterial cell. Such a unique system could result in the creation of on-chip sensors with the capability of analyzing cells and chemicals in real-time.
The GPL series laser diode module system is best suited for general purpose, medium-duty applications
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.
