Laser instrument capable of hitting a sample a hundred thousand times a second is expected to provide scientists with vital information about the UV light-induced DNA damage that drives skin cancer

5D optical memory in quartz glass could record the last evidence of civilisation

Using nanostructured glass, scientists at the University of Southampton have, for the first time, experimentally demonstrated the recording and retrieval processes of five dimensional digital data by femtosecond laser writing.

Fraunhofer ILT heads toward digital photonic production

The Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT generated a lot of interest at the LASER World of Photonics 2013 trade fair with its numerous industrial laser technology innovations.

Laser empties atoms from the inside out

An international team of plasma physicists has used one of the world’s most powerful lasers to create highly unusual plasma composed of hollow atoms.

Cladding gold contacts with a laser

Plated metal switches are the preferred choice for any application that requires durable keys – from laptops and cell phones to cars. Electroplating is the conventional method used for this purpose, but scientists have now developed a novel laser-based method which involves laser cladding gold contact spots instead of applying the gold in a thin layer on the whole surface. This new technique is fast and offers the potential to cut up to 90 percent of the amount of gold used.

International Laser Technology Congress AKL‘12

For the ninth time, the laser community will be coming together at the International Laser Technology Congress AKL’12 from May 9–11, 2012. Catering to the interests of laser manufacturers, users and potential users, AKL’12 will be offering practical examples of innovative industry applications together with the very latest research findings.

Laser, sensor technology

Scientists hope that research being conducted in Binghamton University's Department of Physics, Applied Physics and Astronomy will create lasers that work at wavelengths currently inaccessible.

Laser excitation source

Following on from the success of the TTP LabTech 488nm Acumen Explorer, the company has now launched a new model with a single violet (405nm) laser excitation source.

Validating laser diffraction particle sizing methods to maintain integrity

When undertaking particle size measurements it is important to validate the analysis method to ascertain both its robustness and integrity. Steve Ward-Smith and Alan Rawle review the steps that should be taken when validating laser diffraction methods for particle size analysis.

Laser device suitable for painless antigen application

Pantec Biosolutions AG, the manufacturer of P.L.E.A.S.E. Professional, a portable laser device for the precise microporation of the skin, has contributed to three scientific publications illustrating the effectiveness of the technology for a new form of immunotherapy in an allergic asthma mouse model.

Laser etched alphanumeric coded tubes

Micronic has introduced a range of laser etched alphanumeric coded sample storage tubes (0.5ml, 0.75ml, 1.1ml and 1.4ml). The new tubes have a flat polypropylene bottom on which the alphanumeric code is encrypted with a laser.

LIMO brings laser light in line

High power diode laser line generator checks solar cells

Edge-rounding and removing burrs of glass parts with laser radiation

The laser polishing process developed at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT has been a well known technique in metal and glass processing for several years now. It can be used not only for polishing surfaces, but also for rounding edges and for removing burrs e.g. split lines on parts formed by injection or compression molding.
