Laser Quantum's finesse pure CEP: The only 532nm high power pump laser with direct power modulation for CEP stabilisation

finesse pure CEP

Laser Quantum’s finesse pure CEP is the first and only 532nm high power pump laser on the market that provides direct modulation input to its output power. Its patented technology has the ability to receive a phase related error signal from an f-to-2f interferometer into its controller, thereby modulating the output power and hence the carrier envelope phase of a few-cycle laser pulse. Also, the enhanced bandwidth of the finesse pure CEP control loop permits a further reduction of integrated phase noise compared with the more conventional AOM method of phase control, particularly above 10 kHz making it simpler and more cost-effective.

HORIBA LabSpec 6 software now allows regulatory compliance


HORIBA Scientific announces the release of the new ProtectionPlus module for the acclaimed LabSpec 6 Spectroscopy Suite. The fully integrated module seamlessly adds a layer of security and data integrity controls that enable compliant use of HORIBA Raman microscopes within regulated laboratory environments.

The ProtectionPlus module offers a configurable module for system security administrators to put in place and enforce a wide range of security, user and file policies.  In combination with correct computer/laboratory practices, ProtectionPlus allows operators of HORIBA’s Raman instruments to work in compliance with Part 11 of the FDA’s Code of Federal Regulations, Title 21, with regard to electronic records and electronic signatures.

Thorlabs Vytran™ Polyimide Fiber Recoater with Linear Proof Tester



  • Recoat Spliced Polyimide Fibers to Restore Flexibility
  • Designed for Polyimide-Coated Fibers with Ø125 µm Cladding and Coatings up to Ø155 µm
  • 50 mm Maximum Recoat Length
  • Fully Programmable with Push Button Operation
  • Features an Integrated Linear Proof Tester

Thorlabs' VytranTM Polyimide Fiber Recoater with Proof Tester offers an easy, integrated solution to recoat and test fusion-spliced fibers. The recoating process uses a translating die to apply a polyimide resin along the length of the recoated section, up to 50 mm in length. One pass can apply a Ø3 µm - Ø10 µm coat of resin, and multiple passes can be made for higher reliability and increased coating diameter. The recoat process is fully programmable; by setting parameters such as injection rate and the velocity of the die, the diameter of the recoat per pass can be set. Dual heater filaments in the die thermally cure the recoated section of fiber with each pass. The restored buffer coating gives the fiber the same flexibility as when originally manufactured, making this device ideal for applications that require handling and coiling of fusion-spliced fibers. Due to handling and storage constraints, we do not offer polyimide recoat material.

HighFinesse Wavelength Meters: Enter a New World of Accuracy

wavelength meters

HighFinesse/Ångstrom offers sensitive and compact wavelength meters with a large spectral range for high speed measurement of lasers. The optical unit consists of temperature-controlled Fizeau-based interferometers that are read out by photodiode arrays. The high absolute accuracy is achieved by use of solid state, non-moving optics.

The optical unit and associated electronics are housed in a compact, thermal casing. The connection to a computer or notebook is realized via a highspeed USB 2.0 port, which allows a high data read-out rate. The analyzing software displays all the interferometer information and is compatible with Microsoft Windows.

Lasermet High Integrity Laser Safety Beam Shutter

LS 20 range

The Lasermet LS-20 Laser Safety Shutter is intended to provide a means of preventing accidental exposure to a potentially harmful laser beam. It has been designed to form part of a high-integrity safety system and features a gravity-close blade and force-disconnect proving contacts. When closed, the shutter deflects the incoming laser beam onto an internal beam dump where the energy is converted to heat which is dissipated in the aluminium casing of the shutter. When the shutter is open, the laser beam passes through the shutter without interruption.
