Laser Quantum: Lasers on a Zero-g plane

zeroG 768x576

The University of Greifswald recently used a Laser Quantum gem laser laser on a zero-g plane! It had been used as a source for the light sheet analysing dusty plasmons under micro gravity to test a theory.

The robustness of the laser was a key attribute in undertaking the experiment: The gem, which has recently been the star of the Laser Quantum video’s ‘The gem vs. series’, once again demonstrated its adaptability and durability when working in different environments. It was used in the application of Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV) where dusty plasmons under micro gravity were collected for data, at the time of writing this data is currently being analysed.

The gem is a compact, high specification, single transverse mode continuous wave laser. Capable of outputting up to 2 W, the gem offers a highly stable, diffraction limited beam that is reliable in many environments. To find out more about the gem laser, please click here.
