  • Cobolt Ships 10,000th Laser
Mar 2016
STOLNA, Sweden, March 24, 2016 — Laser manufacturer Cobolt AB said it shipped its 10,000th laser in February. That unit, a Samba 532-nm, 300-mW single frequency laser, was delivered to Sam Johnson from the Photonic Nanomaterials Group at the University of Oxford.

Johnson is studying nitrogen vacancy (N-V) defects in diamond lattices, which could hold the key to the future of quantum computing. The Cobolt Samba 532-nm is used in a scanning confocal microscope setup to excite the diamond, the red emission highlighting the N-V lattice defect. Johnson said Cobolt was the first choice due to the higher available output power, excellent power stability and TEM00 beam, as well as quick delivery time.

Founded in 2000 with roots in the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Cobolt, a Hubner Group Company, supplies CW and Q-switched lasers for standalone use in labs or OEM integration in equipment for fluorescence analysis, Raman spectroscopy, interferometric metrology, micromachining and environmental monitoring.

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...
