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.

Physicists have developed a new technique that uses electrical voltages to control the electron spin on a chip. The newly-developed method provides protection from spin decay, meaning that the contained information can be maintained and transmitted over comparatively large distances, as has been demonstrated by a team from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics and the Swiss Nanoscience Institute. The results have been published in Physical Review X.
For several years, researchers have been trying to use the spin of an electron to store and transmit information. The spin of each electron is always coupled...
What is the mass of a proton? Scientists from Germany and Japan successfully did an important step towards the most exact knowledge of this fundamental constant. By means of precision measurements on a single proton, they could improve the precision by a factor of three and also correct the existing value.
To determine the mass of a single proton still more accurate – a group of physicists led by Klaus Blaum and Sven Sturm of the Max Planck Institute for Nuclear...
