UWaterloo IQC Selects Laser from Zecotek Medical Systems
Zecotek Medical Systems Inc. of Vancouver, British Columbia, a developer of photonic and biophotonic technologies used in the high-tech industry and medical diagnostics, today announced that its continuous-wave narrow-band titanium:sapphire laser, model TIS-FD-08/A-scan-WV, has been selected by the University of Waterloo's Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) in Ontario. The ultrawide tunable laser will be used by the institute in the field of nano-optics (the investigation of single semiconductor quantum dots) and quantum computing. Zecotek's Ti:sapphire lasers are manufactured under contract by Tekhnoscan Lasers of Novosibirsk, Russia.
- 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 dots
- Also known as QDs. Nanocrystals of semiconductor materials that fluoresce when excited by external light sources, primarily in narrow visible and near-infrared regions; they are commonly used as alternatives to organic dyes.
