Frequency combs

A stable pump laser is key whether you need a frequency comb for atomic clocks, metrology, radars, high-precision spectroscopy, or GPS. Micro resonator-based frequency combs transfer the laser characteristics from the pump laser to its comb teeth. Any power fluctuations in the pump laser will be amplified in the nonlinear process that creates the comb. Read more

Acetylene locked lasers

Are you looking for a laser with superior long-term mode-hop-free stability as a foundation for your acetylene-locked laser? High long-term stability and a well-defined reference wavelength are essential for locking and stabilizing the wavelength in e.g. frequency combs, spectroscopy, metrology, or laser cooling and trapping.

Rubidium cooling

Are you looking for a laser for rubidium cooling for applications such as gravimeters, quantum computers, or inertial sensors? A mode-hop-free and a low phase-noise laser that ensures efficient cooling? A laser with a high power to maximize the number of cooled atoms? Read more

Doppler cooling – build a quantum computer

Say you are going on a road trip and want to find the shortest route. Or you are punching holes in circuit boards and want to reduce the traveling time from hole to hole. Quantum computers are predicted to solve optimization problems like these much faster than conventional computers. But how do you build a quantum computer? Read more

Atomic Trapping and Cooling

Laser cooling and trapping is the ability to cool atoms down to unprecedented kinetic temperatures, and to confine and support isolated atoms in “atom traps”. This unique new level of control of atomic motion allows researchers to study the behavior of atoms and quantum mechanical properties. Read more
