Jan 2005
LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Jan. 5 -- William Burgess, vice president of operations at Power Technology Inc., a Little Rock, Ark., maker of laser diode products, was recently appointed a member of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z136 accredited standards committee, which writes standards that protect against potential hazards associated with the use of lasers.

The committee is comprised of organizations, companies, government agencies and individuals with a direct interest in the safe use of lasers. The majority of ASC Z136 committee members also serve on one or more of the standards and/or technical subcommittees, and Burgess has been approved for membership onto the Standards Subcommittee 1 (SSC-1) for Safe Use of Lasers.

Power Technology's products have applications in the biomedical, analytical and industrial markets, including confocal microscopy, holography, cancer detection, Raman spectroscopy, high-resolution printing, telecommunications, LIDAR, analytical instrumentation, reprographics, metrology, interferometry, blood analysis and stereolithography.

GLOSSARY
holography
The optical recording of the object wave formed by the resulting interference pattern of two mutually coherent component light beams. In the holographic process, a coherent beam first is split into two component beams, one of which irradiates the object, the second of which irradiates a recording medium. The diffraction or scattering of the first wave by the object forms the object wave that proceeds to and interferes with the second coherent beam, or reference wave at the medium. The resulting...
raman spectroscopy
That branch of spectroscopy concerned with Raman spectra and used to provide a means of studying pure rotational, pure vibrational and rotation-vibration energy changes in the ground level of molecules. Raman spectroscopy is dependent on the collision of incident light quanta with the molecule, inducing the molecule to undergo the change.
