Lasers for Lithography

Lithography is the transfer of a designed pattern onto a flat surface, either directly or via an intermediate medium - excluding areas of the surface where the pattern is not required. In photomask lithography, where a design is patterned onto a substrate, a laser is used to expose the pattern, allowing deposited material to be etched away, preparing it for further processing. This lithography met

Lasers for Flow Cytometry

Flow Cytometry Flow cytometry is a method for the quantitative determination of cellular properties, analysing light incident on a focussed stream of fluid containing a heterogenous population of biological samples. Lasers for Flow Cytometry Cells, or other particles, are individually passed through a light path at high speed while suspended in a tightly focussed stream of fluid, causing an energy

Lasers for Quantum Technology

Already many organisations rely on atomic clocks for their most accurate measurements of time and there is a large scale movement to take quantum gravimeters out of the lab and into the field in order to monitor ice sheets and magma flow in volcanoes. The possible applications are widespread. The industrial cost for oil exploration companies to find one leak within thousands of miles of pipe runni

Lasers for Holography and Imaging

Rather than an image as recorded by standard photography, a holographic image is a record of the difference in phase and amplitude intensities of the two light paths as they arrive at the recording media. The resulting interference image is meaningles

Lasers for Raman Spectroscopy and Microscopy

When a laser is incident on a sample, most of the photons will be scattered elastically and will not be subject to any energy change, known as Rayleigh Scattering. Raman scattering events are significantly more infrequent, only around 1 in a million

Fiber Laser Basics

A fiber laser (or fibre lase) is a laser in which the active gain medium is an optical fiber doped with rare-earth elements such as erbium, ytterbium, neodymium, dysprosium, praseodymium, thulium and holmium. They are related to doped fiber amplifiers, which provide light amplification without lasing. A fiber laser with MOPA configuration is shown as follows: Pump laser diode: Fiber-coupled diodes
