Laser Focus World White Papers

Running with Sharp Edges

A pulsed-current laser diode driver generates constant-current pulses for driving, testing, and characterizing laser diodes and LEDs. Pulse rise time is a ke...

High-Power Diode Lasers under External Optical Feedback

We carried out a comprehensive study on single emitters with different antireflection (AR) coatings in the wavelength range between 780nm and 976nm, which ha...

LED Reflector and Lens Simulation using TracePro® Illumination Design and Analysis Software

TracePro® allows users to design, analyze, and optimize LED lighting systems using software simulation prior to building hardware. The resultant accuracy of ...

Tamarisk® Custom Lens Calibration

Though the Tamarisk product line is optimally designed to suit a variety of end-uses, DRS has developed the Tamarisk® Custom Lens Calibration (CLC) utility t...

Understanding Polarization and Optical Coatings

Light is an electromagnetic wave, but, at optical frequencies, it is its electric field that interacts with materials, with the direction of the electric field (polarization) at times as important as its magnitude. The state of...

In-Situ Infrared Sensing using Calibration-Free Scanned-WMS Laser Absorption Spectroscopy

This presentation, sponsored by Wavelength Electronics and ILX Lightwave, will discuss the range of sensing capabilities offered by scanned-WMS in the near- and mid-infrared and provide several examples of implementation by the...

Wave Optics Simulations

An add-on to COMSOL Multiphysics®, the Wave Optics Module offers capabilities for modeling optical phenomena. The innovative beam envelope method is among the available techniques, and can be used to simulate optical systems wi...

Mid-infrared lasers in remote chemical sensing – from stand-off detection to atmospheric sounding

In this webcast, Gerard Wysocki of MIRTHE will discuss the unique remote-sensing capabilities enabled by modern mid-infrared (mid-IR) lasers and novel spectroscopic techniques. Examples will include passive long-range remote se...

Lens Design – Tools for designing manufacturable aspheres for complex optical assemblies

Designing aspheres that may be successfully fabricated and tested can be a frustrating experience. The range of possible aspheres is much larger than the range of those that may be fabricated and tested with available tools. Th...

Femtosecond Lasers – Getting the Photons to the Work Area

Ultrashort-pulse lasers, both picosecond and femtosecond, are now available from a large number of manufacturers, with new players entering the field at a rapid pace. These lasers, which only a few years ago were only cool toys...
