Ocular lasers, or lasers on the eyes, may now be possible with the development of an ultrathin membrane laser using organic semiconductors.
Omicron has released a range of LightHUB+ Plug&Play Laser Light Engines, equipped with up to six user-upgradable wavelengths in a compact and rugged design.
Macquarie University researchers have proven a method for multiplying laser power using diamond, demonstrating that the superlaser from film franchise Star Wars may not remain in the realm of science fiction for much longer.
The SOLE laser light engines from Omicron Laserage combine up to six wavelengths in a compact and rugged design. Wavelengths between 355 and 2090 nm and optical output powers up to 2500 mW per laser line are possible.
Over the last few years, researchers at the University of Rochester have altered materials to make them repel water, attract water and absorb great amounts of light — all through the use of irradiated laser pulses.
The Thorlabs SC4500 Mid Infrared (MIR) Supercontinuum Source is claimed to be the first femtosecond-pumped supercontinuum source on the market.
Physicists from ANU have invented a tiny device that creates the highest quality holographic images ever achieved.
Australian scientists have developed an optical chip for telescopes, allowing astronomers for the first time to take clear images of planets that may support life.
Thorlabs has announced its EXULUS-HD1 reflective two-dimensional spatial light modulator (SLM) based on liquid crystal on silicon (LCoS) technology.
Thorlabs has released the XR-Series cross roller bearing, aluminium-bodied translation stages. The initial release includes both rear- and side-actuated 1″ travel stages and all components needed to have left- or right-handed X, XY, XZ, YZ and XYZ configurations.
Physicists from The Australian National University have halted light, bringing the prospect of optical quantum computing one step closer to reality.
Researchers have found a way to make ultrapure-frequency lasers based on diamond, avoiding the problems responsible for destabilising and broadening a laser's frequency.
Instrumentation supplier Scitech has been appointed the authorised distributor for the CrestOptics range of products in Australia and New Zealand.
Scientists have improved the performance of tiny lasers by adding impurities, leading to a 100-fold improvement in the amount of light emitted from the lasers.
Australian researchers have discovered a way to make infrared technology easy to use and cheap, potentially saving millions of dollars in areas using sensing devices.
