New solid-state lasers with
integrated fiber delivery are ideal
for fluorescence based applications
where stable power and beam
profiles are needed for high
confidence results and imaging.
Collimation optics, PM fiber and
modulation (488nm) are optional.
How can we help make
your results better?

Proper Load Distribution Ensures Stable Operation
Optical tables on soft pneumatic supports offer vibration isolation as well as high
load capacity that enables researchers to isolate large optoelectronic
setups including heavy elements like cryostats, high-power lasers,
large ATM, STM and optical setups. Proper load distribution and
static stability of pneumatic support systems are not always
properly understood, which sometimes creates
difficulties in setting up modern complicated
optoelectronic systems. In this feature article,
Vyacheslav M. Ryaboy of Newport
Corporation gives a short tutorial
on the subject.
Quantum Cascade Lasers Researchers from MIRTHE at Princeton University will discuss remote sensing applications for quantum cascade lasers.
Terahertz CT Helps ID Chemical Substances Researchers from Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics & Precision Engi- neering and Friedrich Schiller Univer- sity write about spatial identification of chemical substances with terahertz computed tomography.
Nanophotonic structures help engineers
build more efficient photovoltaics. In a
nanophotonic structure, the feature size is
comparable to or even smaller than the
wavelength of light; at such scales, many
properties of light-matter interactions are
drastically modified. Moreover, in nanophotonics, the properties of a given device are
greatly influenced by the geometry and not
by the material alone. As a result, there is
an enormous degree of freedom in tailoring novel structures for energy applications.

A new "smart" window system can cheaply
darken itself to save air conditioning costs on
summer days, and change back to clear in the
winter to capture free heat from the sun.
