nLight Corona Fiber Lasers

New Corona™ fiber lasers™ fiber lasers from nLIGHT® feature programmable beam quality enabled by groundbreaking all-fiber technology. Rapid tuning of the fiber laser spot size optimizes machine tool performance across all metals and thicknesses. Corona enables the development of highly versatile machine tools so job shops and factories can truly "have it all". No longer must they choose between purchasing multiple tools, accepting compromised performance from existing tools, or using complex, expensive, and fragile free-space optical technologies.

With one Corona laser, users can rapidly select from high-intensity, small-spot-size beams to large, donut-shaped beams, and everything in between. This dramatic advance allows optimal thick and thin metal cutting, higher cutting speed and quality, and improved piercing and small-feature processing with the same tool. The unmatched performance and flexibility of Corona fiber lasers also negate the need for post processing, enabling factory automation and “lights out” operation. End users get the best of all worlds—the speed of high-power fiber lasers for thin metal processing, the quality of CO2 lasers for thick metal processing, and the high uptime and low operating costs of a fiber laser solution.

Clark-MXR congratulates new Nobel Prize winners

mourou

Clark-MXR would like to congratulate this year's Physics Nobel laureates, Professors Gerard Mourou and Donna Strickland for their invention of Chirped pulse amplification and Professor Arthur Ashkin for optical tweezers.

For Clark-MXR, this is a joyous occasion as Prof. Gerard Mourou is one of our co-founders and our CPA-Series laser, first introduced in 1992, is named after the Chirped Pulse Amplification technique for which Professors Gerard Mourou and Donna Strickland have been honoured.

We congratulate all three recipients of the Physics Nobel prize and especially our co-founder, Prof. Gerard Mourou.

Laser Quantum: An even lower M2 value – opus 1064

Laser Quantum opus 1064

The M2 value of a DPSS continuous wave laser has always been important in applications including optical trapping and Raman spectroscopy. In optical trapping, an M2 value close to unity enables a high degree of position predictability and repeatability, whilst in Raman spectroscopy, it ensures a tightly focussed beam. In both applications, the data gathered is greatly improved from a laser with low M2 value. Laser Quantum, on its continuous improvement programme, has reduced the M2 value for its opus 1064, a laser commonly used in optical trapping, to <1.15. The opus 1064 offers up to 10 W of power and exceptional pointing and power stability. The reduction in the M2 value has not compromised any of the specifications and serves to improve Laser Quantum’s offering to its customers.

LaVision introduces two new 4MPx high-speed camera models

3757 3 v1840

The LaVision Phantom v2640 and Phantom v1840 models are the latest addition to the ultrahigh-speed camera series.

Both camera models have a resolution of 4Mpx and an exceptional image quality as well as a low noise level. The Phantom v1840 achieves up to 4,510 fps at full resolution and the Phantom v2640 up to 6,600 fps. Both camera models feature multiple operating modes (high-speed, correlated double sampling (CDS) and binned) for maximum flexibility. With a minimum interframe time of 500 ns, they are particularly suitable for PIV applications.

LaVision offers both camera models either with a standard F-mount front panel or optionally with an M42 front panel. The cameras are perfectly integrated into LaVision's DaVis 10 software.

piezosystem jena: 24DV40 - the new digital piezo controller with automatic actuator detection

csm 24 DV40 37bdc1f001

piezosystem jena has expanded its portfolio of innovative digital piezo controllers.

Designed primarily for labs and industrial customers, the 24DV40 piezo controller is the perfect fit for quasi-static and dynamic step positioning.

The controller can operate actuators with a control voltage of -20 V to +130 V and an output current of 40 mA. The 24DV40 also supports actuators based on piezosystem jena’s own NanoX® technology, where it can generate a current of 2 x 40 mA.
