Diamonds get more beautiful with laser lamps

16.04.2015

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: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
