Lasers for Micromachining: Shorter Pulses, More Power
Lasers for Micromachining: Shorter Pulses, More Power
Smaller devices, tighter tolerances, and higher performance demand finer and finer features — hence the increasing need for micromachining. For lasers, this often translates into a requirement for shorter pulse widths. However, these must be at the right wavelength. What’s more, the entire solution, including the laser, must be cost-effective.

Point-of-Use Power Meter Can Monitor High-Power Lasers in Real Time
Point-of-Use Power Meter Can Monitor High-Power Lasers in Real Time
A high-accuracy point-of-use laser power meter, in the form of a folding mirror called the Smart Mirror, could make in situ, real-time measurement of laser power possible. Unlike most traditional meters, the Smart Mirror is compact, fast, and can report laser powers at any time during the manufacturing process without interrupting work.

Laser Light Sources for Automotive and Specialty Lighting Applications
Laser Light Sources for Automotive and Specialty Lighting Applications
Tue, Sep 25, 2018 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT
Laser light sources, which can offer more than 10 times the luminance of LEDs, are now being adopted into automotive headlights, specialty lighting, projection displays, and are being developed for biomedical and industrial applications. This webinar will address the latest advances in laser light sources and the technology that is now being developed to support this progress. Paul Rudy, co-founder of SLD Laser, will discuss the use of GaN laser diodes, phosphor chip technology, and high-luminance packaging to develop new laser light sources and will introduce SLD Laser's LaserLight illumination source technology. This webinar is sponsored by Lambda Research Corporation.
