Toptica Photonics: Single-wavelength fiber laser for 2-photon fluorescence excitation

November, 2020: In 2-photon microscopy, peak-power is brightness! If you care for the best image brightness, you need short pulses, high power, and most importantly a clean temporal pulse shape. With more than sufficient output power, shortest pul

Macnica ATD Europe announces release of Macnica SLVS-EC Rx IP

November, 2020: Macnica ATD Europe today announced that its parent company Macnica Inc. now offers Macnica SLVS-EC IP versions for both Intel and Xilinx devices. SLVS-EC is a high-speed interface defined by Sony for high-resolution/high-frame-rate CM

TOPTICA introduces Laser Rack Systems

TOPTICA Photonics AG releases quantum-technology-approved laser modules for industrial rack integration: narrow-linewidth tunable diode lasers, amplified or frequency-converted diode lasers, frequency combs, and related accessories. A new era begi

Dr. Wilhelm Kaenders elected as Fellow of SPIE

One of our TOPTICA founders, Dr. Wilhelm Kaenders was recognized during this year’s BiOS/Photonics West 2020 for his contributions to the laser world and the company’s community engagement with the SPIE Fellow award. David Andrews, Pre

Toptica: Optical frequency measurement to the 21st significant digit

Today’s best optical clocks achieve an amazing accuracy and would be off by less than one second over the age of the universe. These clocks rely on probing optical transitions in cold atoms with very stable and narrow linewidth laser light. The

Solid-State laser array by Lumencor

The CELESTA light engine delivers approximately 1 watt of output power at the distal end of a 1.5 mm dia optical fiber from each of its 7 individually addressable multimode laser light sources. The laser outputs are allied to sophisticated control
