University of Illinois Selects Zecotek Devices

Mar 2008
The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign physics department has ordered a Triple Seven Ti: sapphire laser and a resonant frequency doubler from Zecotek Photonics Inc., of Vancouver, Canada, for use in quantum research. The tandem device can deliver a super-narrow line of radiation in the blue spectral range for applications such as nanolithography, nanostructured materials and quantum physics in which single atoms and ions can be cooled, trapped and manipulated using laser beams. Zecotek said the laser specification is for an absolute line width of less than 10 kHz rms, but in performance testing, the output radiation line has been determined at 1 kHz. The frequency doubler has a conversion efficiency of more than 25 percent, it said. Zecotek's Ti:Sapphire lasers are manufactured under contract by a Russion-based laser manufacturer, Tekhnoscan J.S., for Zecotek Laser Systems Singapore Pte. Ltd., a Zecotek Photonics subsidiary.



GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
