Ekspla launch new compact femtosecond fiber laser FemtoLux green

FemtoLux 3 femtosecond microjoule class fiber laser 1

Ekspla's  FemtoLux green is a modern compact femtosecond fiber laser aimed for both R&D use and industrial integration. Laser delivers 1.5 W at 515 nm or 3 W at 1030 nm of average power and up to 3 μJ femtosecond pulse energy.

In some important applications like multiphoton polymerization, writing of fiber Bragg gratings, volume modification of transparent materials, nonlinear microscopy, silicon and sapphire scribing, marking of some kind of materials, different wavelength than fundamental output is needed. Important point is that requirements for sufficient pulse energy as well as beam quality remains. Having in mind such needs, FemtoLux green , femtosecond fiber laser, was developed. Unlike other commercially used fiber lasers, FemtoLux provides perfectly linearly polarized light with polarization extinction ratio >1000:1.

3777 2 MiniShaker Underwater

The watertight multi-camera system is ideally suited for underwater applications

The LaVision MiniShaker Underwater module is an integrated, watertight multi-camera system ideal for time-resolved volumetric PTV (Shake-the-Box) and Tomographic PIV measurements in underwater applications.The system enables measurements of high-density particle tracks, 3-dimensional velocity fields, acceleration data and pressure fields.

The compact system enables quick installation and easy operation in towing tank environments or other applications in water. A well-defined light cone and maintenance-free optics do not require any action from the user before a measurement is started.Rotatable, rigid joints allow flexible viewing directions of the camera module. Data transfer and power supply are both provided by the USB 3.0 interface, which avoids complicated cabling.
