        • Lasers for Fluorescence Microscopy

        • CW lasers in the visible range are widely used in fluorescence microscopy applications. The fluorescence from specific fluorophores or biomarkers is detected in confocal configurations enabling fast and high spatial resolution imaging of cells, organisms, sub-cellular structures and cell dynamics in live cells.
        • Lasers for Flow Cytometry

        • Flow cytometers is a bioanalytical tool in which single or multiple cellular properties are determined by analyzing large populations of cells. In a standard configuration the fluorescence labelled cells pass through the laser beam in a hydro-dynamically focused jet stream in a flow cell.
        • Lasers for Gas sensing

        • OPO-based PAS provides ultimately fast and sensitive trace gas analysis
          The photoacoustic infrared spectroscopy (PAS) is a very promising technology for trace gas detection and analysis in environmental or atmospheric monitoring, industrial process control or medical diagnostics. PAS is based on exciting rotational and vibrational states of gas-molecules with infra-red light pulses.
        • Lasers for Holography

        • The production of high quality holographic images has always relied on lasers with long coherence length and single mode properties in order to achieve stable interference for the entire exposure time.
          Today holograms are not only appreciated as art works but they are also used for improved security measures, for instance on credit cards and bank notes, for real-time sub-micron measurements and for advanced presentation in 3D format.

          Cobolt DPSS lasers are a very appropriate laser source for Holography due to their extremely narrow linewidth, which translates to a long coherence length, very stable power and single mode properties. Stable single mode operation is particularly important for large area holograms where long exposure times are often required.
        • Lasers for Interferometry

        • The term interferometry comes from the word interference. Interference is a phenomenon that occurs when two waves of any kind come together at the same time and place.
        • Lasers for Doppler Velocimetry

        • Laser Doppler Velocimetry is a well established method for analysing particle movement at a single point, either in a gas or a liquid.
        • Lasers for LIBS

        • Industrial-grade pulsed lasers bring LIBS out of the laboratory
          Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) is an atomic-emission spectroscopy technique that enables rapid chemical analysis of a wide range of materials ranging from metals, semiconductors, glasses, biological tissues, plastics, soils, thin-paint coating, and electronic materials.
        • Lasers for Optical Tweezers

        • Optical tweezers (originally called “single-beam gradient force trap”) are a bioanalytical instrument that makes use of a highly-focused laser beam to provide an attractive or repulsive force, depending on the refractive index mismatch to physically hold and move microscopic dielectric objects. Optical tweezers have become a well known and successful tool in studying a variety of biological systems.
        • Lasers for Optogenetics

        • Optogenetics “Controlling the Brain with Light”
          Optogenetics is a new research method that has revolutionized neuroscience over the last years and opened up completely new possibilities to develop a deeper understanding of the function of the human brain. It allows researchers to study how neurological activity patterns within specific brain cells give rise to thoughts, behaviors and memories at an unprecedented precision level, and in this way helps finding cures and treatments for neurological and psychiatric disorders such as depression, addiction, schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease.
        • Lasers for Raman Spectroscopy

        • Compact high performance lasers advances Raman spectroscopy
          The ”inelastic scattering of light,” or Raman effect, was observed in practice for the first time in 1928 by C.V. Raman for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize in 1930. In Raman spectroscopy an incident laser beam (in the UV visible-near IR spectral range) is frequency shifted by this inelastic scattering in the material or substance studied.
