Quantum cascade laser (QCL) manufacturer Block Engineering LLC of Marlborough, Mass., has added SKAE Associates of Lexington and Pembroke Instruments of San Francisco to its family of sales representatives. SKAE Associates will cover the New England states as an exclusive representative for Block Engineering’s line of QCL-based products. Pembroke Instruments serves emerging markets within life sciences, semiconductor, R&D and academic research. It will be the exclusive representative for California. Block Engineering added the representatives as a step in its strategy to increase its focus on industrial and academic markets and enhance its presence in commercially critical US locations.



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...
quantum cascade laser
A Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) is a type of semiconductor laser that emits light in the mid- to far-infrared portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Quantum cascade lasers offer many benefits: They are tunable across the mid-infrared spectrum from 5.5 to 11.0 µm (900 cm-1 to 1800 cm-1); provide a rapid response time; and provide spectral brightness that is significantly brighter than even a synchrotron source. Quantum cascade lasers comprise alternating layers of semiconductor...
