It was great to see lasers in the press this week! Three scientists; Dr Strickland, Arthur Ashkin and Gerard Mourou were awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for their work on optical tweezing and for their method of generating high-intensity, ultra-short optical pulses.

“The inventions being honoured this year have revolutionised laser physics. Extremely small objects and incredibly rapid processes are now being seen in a new light. Advanced precision instruments are opening up unexplored areas of research and a multitude of industrial and medical applications.” *

Did you know that our CW Single Frequency DPSS lasers are well suited for Optical Tweezing? Our patented BRaMMS technology enables us to provide products with an unparalleled TEM00 beam shape, quoted with M² figure of 1.05. The compact and robust design of all our products ensures highly stable beam pointing and power outputs.
