Diamonds get more beautiful with laser lamps


Did you know, that diamonds get more beautiful after cutting with lasers?

Diamonds were always popular particularly when they are very big and of a brilliant surface. Yet, the bigger the rough diamond, the bigger the risk of destroying it during cutting.

Lasers have been used for sawing, kerfing, bruting and shaping of diamonds since the early 1990s. Diamond cutting is the art, and increasingly the science, of producing a faceted gem from a rough stone.

After analysing and scanning the raw gem, a laser is used to perform the computerised cut. The function of the laser lamp is to pump energy into the laser rod, the output is then amplified in the laser resonator to produce a coherent laser beam.

For diamond cutting, CW lamps are the preferred option because they are ideal for high beam quality and a seamless, high-quality cut. Heraeus Noblelight has started to serve the global diamond processing industry since its origin and until today is the market leader in this field due to quality and service.

Lamps from Heraeus in Cambridge are reliable and of high quality. This helps to minimise weight loss and breakage.

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...

Im Focus: Diamonds aren't forever: Sandia, Harvard team create first quantum computer bridge

By forcefully embedding two silicon atoms in a diamond matrix, Sandia researchers have demonstrated for the first time on a single chip all the components needed to create a quantum bridge to link quantum computers together.

"People have already built small quantum computers," says Sandia researcher Ryan Camacho. "Maybe the first useful one won't be a single giant quantum computer...
