Koheras to Market Aculight's Argos in Europe

Photonics.com
Mar 2008
Laser technology developer Aculight Corp. of Bothell, Wash., and fiber laser maker Koheras of Birkerød, Denmark, announced they have signed a joint marketing agreement for Aculight's Argos single-frequency, continuous-wave, multiwatt tunable optical parametric oscillator (OPO) that Argos.jpgcontains Koheras' single-frequency fiber lasers. Argos is used in high-resolution spectroscopy applications such as photoacoustic and cavity-ringdown spectroscopy, atom trapping, chemical sensing, and medical applications. Koheras will exclusively sell and market Argos in the UK, Germany, France, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and the Nordic countries. With the official European launch of the Argos OPO this month, Koheras and Aculight are jointly presenting a demo system at the DPG Spring Meeting in Darmstadt, Germany (March 11-13, level E0, Booth 003), and LOB, Laser Optik Berlin (March 17-19, Hall 18, Booth 404).


GLOSSARY
fiber laser
A laser in which the lasing medium is an optical fiber doped with low levels of rare-earth halides to make it capable of amplifying light. Output is tunable over a broad range and can be broadband. Laser diodes can be used for pumping because of the fiber laser's low threshold power, eliminating the need for cooling.
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...
