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: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Research icebreaker Polarstern begins the Antarctic season

What does it look like below the ice shelf of the calved massive iceberg A68?

On Saturday, 10 November 2018, the research icebreaker Polarstern will leave its homeport of Bremerhaven, bound for Cape Town, South Africa.

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...

Im Focus: Coping with errors in the quantum age

Physicists at ETH Zurich demonstrate how errors that occur during the manipulation of quantum system can be monitored and corrected on the fly

The field of quantum computation has seen tremendous progress in recent years. Bit by bit, quantum devices start to challenge conventional computers, at least...
