Growing demand for visible-spectrum laser sources

As scientists seek to experiment at even deeper tissue levels, there is growing need for laser sources that operate in the visible spectrum. Whether for the development of nanoparticles technologies, where some materials have significantly stronger absorption characteristics within this visible region, or in photodynamic therapy and multi-photon imaging, where the high energies associated with UV light can break down DNA and restrict cancer growth.

As the absorption characteristic of many materials like gold, copper and plastics are significantly higher, laser sources operating in the visible spectrum can also deliver benefits within the micromachining sector, for techniques such as 2-photon polymerization and 3D printing.

For the academic community that researches non-linear dynamics, such sources can help generate

the next developments in OPO pumping, 4-wave mixing, amplifier seeding, THz generation and other non-linear processes.

Laser developer Chromacity this week announced the Chromacity 520, an air-cooled ytterbium fibre-based laser that combines high power with ultrashort pulse durations. The laser provides a fixed 520nm output at a power of 500mW – 1W.  The Chromacity 520 also provides the option to deliver dual output at 520/1040nm from a single unit, and is more compact, easier to use and provides better reliability than legacy laser technologies.

With applications in life sciences, materials science, fundamental research and beyond, the Chromacity 520 is suitable for integration into microscopy solutions, as well as a wide range of industrial systems.

Chromacity will be showcasing the Chromacity 520, along with its other laser systems at the Photonics West conference and tradeshow from February 5 – 7 in San Francisco.
