Deburring EXPO: Finishing sheet edges and functional surfaces with the laser

The topics of deburring and polishing are becoming increasingly important in metalworking. Laser-based deburring and polishing processes are particularly…

Physics that gets under your skin

Due to modern advances in medicine ever smaller objects are moved through the human body: nanotherapeutics, micro-implants, mini-catheters and tiny medical…

Sussex scientists one step closer to a clock that could replace GPS and Galileo

Scientists in the Emergent Photonics Lab (EPic Lab) at the University of Sussex have made a breakthrough to a crucial element of an atomic clock – devices…

Breaking the optical bandwidth record of stable pulsed lasers

The Ultrafast Optical Processing Group at INRS (Institut national de la recherche scientifique) has redefined the limitations and constraints for ultra-fast…

Microscopy: Nine at one blow

Fluorescence microscopy allows researchers to visualise biomolecules in cells. They label the molecules using fluorescent probes, excite them with light and…

Welding Metal Foils now Easier

For small and medium sized enterprises (SME) which use lasers to weld thin metal sheets, lasers with continuous wave radiation are often too expensive. This is…
