Holographic production method supports infrared materials

Holographic production method supports infrared materials
Using a holographic production method allows for the use of a wide range of infrared materials which do not lend them self to the ruling production process. An interferometrically generated interference pattern is produced from monochromatic light and exposed onto the chosen substrate. Once developed, the resist has a regular sinusoidal profile that is vacuum aluminised at an oblique angle to create the array of parallel conductors.

Laser Components acquires distribution rights from Coherent Solutions

Laser Components acquires distribution rights from Coherent Solutions
LASER COMPONENTS has announced new distribution rights to products from Coherent Solutions for pulse measurement and modular test and measurement equipment. The modular test platform provides a cost effective, scalable and flexible solution,suitable for both production and R&D environments. Each function required for anoptical test, for example tuneable lasers, VOA, and detector, comes on a separate‚ Blade‘. Blades are fitted into a chassis and controlled by the same software interface.

Introducing the IR emitters from Helioworks

Introducing the IR emitters from Helioworks
LASER COMPONENTS has a long partnership with Helioworks, a world leading manufacturer of infra-red emitters. Helioworks manufactures a unique range of steady state black body emitters in industry standard TO packages. Using Kanthal (FeCrAl alloy) filaments with an emissivity of 0.7 and proprietary assembly techniques, these emitters operate at 900ºC in steady state mode consuming 2.4 Watts at 1.4 Volts maximum and 1.75 Amps into 0.8 Ohms.

Terahertz laser could be used for chemical detection

Terahertz laser could be used for chemical detection
For more than 20 years, Qing Hu, a distinguished professor of electrical engineering and computer science at MIT, and his group have been working on sources of terahertz radiation that can be etched onto microchips. In the latest issue of Nature Photonics, members of Hu’s group and colleagues at Sandia National Laboratories and the University of Toronto describe a novel design that boosts the power output of chip-mounted terahertz lasers by 80%.

Laser modules function in wide temperature range

Laser modules function in wide temperature range
Machine Vision is now considered a main-stay within production environments across the globe, and as is the case the technology is being pushed once more to higher expectations such as harsh working environments with extreme working temperatures. To meet this next technological challenge, LASER COMPONENTS has developed the MV18 machine vision line laser. The MV18 featured a ruggedised ø19x65mm (excl. M18 nuts & M12 rear connector) housing and can operate between -20°C to +50°C.

Wire grid polarisers cover a wavelength region from 2.5 to 30 microns

Wire grid polarisers cover a wavelength region from 2.5 to 30 microns
Wire grid polarisers can be used in order to polarise unpolarised molecular laser radiation, or to attenuate the emission of a polarised laser. LASER COMPONENTS offers ruled wire grid polarisers on CaF2 and ZnSe substrates, and holographic wire grid polarisers on CaF2, ZnSe, BaF2, KRS-5 and Ge substrates. This range of available substrate materials collectively covers a wavelength region from 2.5 to 30 microns, providing parts suitable for most common applications.

Nanolaser can operate at room temperature

Nanolaser can operate at room temperature
For the first time, researchers have built a nanolaser that uses only a single molecular layer, placed on a thin silicon beam, which operates at room temperature. The new device, developed by a team of researchers from Arizona State University and Tsinghua University, Beijing, China, could potentially be used to send information between different points on a single computer chip. The lasers also may be useful for other sensing applications in a compact, integrated format.
