During the production of functional laser optics as well as for the development of innovative products in the optics industry it is necessary to precisely determine the purity of optical materials.
The need for preciseness and sensitivity has increased extremely, especially for optimized materials of high quality. These materials include various quartz glasses, crystals and numerous other optical glasses, which also serve as carrier materials for quality coatings.
In order to determine the optical quality of laser optics, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed a laser calorimeter which is able to measure the absorption of light in the material. Specific advantages of the device are its high sensitivity, absolute calibration and a wide spectral range of the test wavelength.
The laser calorimeter is industrially available at the LZH in customer-specific versions. Also, the LZH offers services for absorption measurements for a great variety of laser beam sources for various industrial applications.Contact:

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...

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...
