What does a terahertz imager do?

Until recently, ultrasound and X-ray imaging systems were the only technologies that could look inside a product and detect impurities that are not visible from the outside. Until the T-SENSE was available. It is a terahertz-based system that is both non-contact and radiation-free. Read more!


Tunable lasers help in the quantum quest

Most early attention has focused on nitrogen vacancy centres in diamond − which offer single-photon emission at room temperature − but they are not ideal for all applications because their asymmetric charge distribution makes them sensitive to local fluctuations in the electric field. Read how our C-WAVE tunable laser helps researchers find new colour centers candidates.


Raman light sheet microscopy

Raman spectroscopy provides an intrinsic label-free contrast mechanism from the sample that is rich in biochemical content. Taking 2D information of the molecular distribution that conforms the sample is thus, very attractive to the biomedical science community. Read about how the unique combination of Raman and light sheet microscopy is helping us learn more.


Quantum sensing

As quantum sensing technology has matured over recent years, one of the contending techniques for commercially developed systems is based on nanoscale magnetometry with Nitrogen-Vacancy (NV) centers in diamond. In this white paper we give an overview of the current proposed solutions for quantum sensors based on NV center magnetometry.


OPO technology

State-of-the-art OPO technology delivers visible, single frequency, tunable laser light from 450 nm – 650 nm. Read about our unique solution to achieve single frequency cw tunable light in the visible to MIR regions.


Multi-line lasers simplify fluorescence microscopy

Lasers are primarily used for high-resolution and high-throughput imaging techniques, and each wavelength excites a different set of fluorophores. In order to efficiently excite multiple fluorophores, it is necessary to use many single-wavelength lasers in one instrument or experiment. Read how our multi-line laser helps make life simpler in instrument design as well as the lab.


Multi-line lasers for microscopy

A simplified solution for integrating multiple laser wavelengths into a fluorescence microscope is to use a multi-line laser solution. It is now possible to deliver up to four laser colors from one compact and permanently aligned laser package. Read about how it works here.


Widely Tunable CW Laser Light

The visible spectral region remains difficult to access with conventional tunable laser devices. This is why recently commercialized sources based on cw optical parametric oscillator or OPO technology gain market awareness – and become increasingly recognized as cost effective and user friendly turn-key solutions.


Low frequency Raman spectroscopy in pharma inspection

The low-frequency Raman region probes the same low-energy vibrational and rotational modes of molecular structures as terahertz spectroscopy (300 GHz – 6 THz). The THz region of Raman spectra contain important structural information about the molecules or crystal lattices under investigation. In the pharmaceutical industry, for instance, this structural information can help to determine the crystallinity, and therefore solubility, of pharmaceuticals. Read more about how here.
