How photonics takes you one step closer to personalized medicine

Imagine that you can evaluate your health on a day-to-day basis, ensuring that no small sign of critical illness is missed. Imagine a world where early treatment – or even prevention – of diseases saves and improves numerous lives.
With this goal in mind, researchers at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) and the Australian National University (ANU) set out to detect and locate tiny molecules, which can serve as an early indication of illness. Read more

Come say hello at LASER China!

If you are at the LASER World of Photonics China on March 20-22, swing by our booth 2436 in hall W2 to hear about our broad range of lasers. Here are some examples of what we are presenting. Read more

How lasers in space help you find your way

Above our heads, three satellites orbit the Earth. The satellites form the Swarm mission. Onboard the satellites are some complex equipment with the cool name “Absolute Scalar Magnetometers”. Their job is to measure changes in the Earth's magnetic field. The data is used to create the World Magnetic Model – a map of the Earth’s magnetic field. Read more

Ultrafast laser for multi-photon excitation

We are proud to launch the second-generation ORIGAMI HP at Photonics West/BiOS 2019. This compact mode-locked femtosecond laser provides transform-limited output pulses at more than 4 W with pulse durations less than 120 fs and a repetition rate of 80 MHz at 1050 nm. Read more

Koheras HARMONIK

New laser system for cutting-edge quantum optics

The new Koheras HARMONIK system offers you a high-power, frequency-converted and ultra-low noise laser system offering up to 7 W output. With a market leading low phase noise and narrow linewidth at 775-780 nm, it is ideal for ultracold atom applications. Read more

Look, no hands!

A new, advanced optical technology makes it possible to characterize ultra-thin materials without touching them.
