This Wednesday we are taking a moment to thank all our international partners around the globe. On Monday, Power Technology was recognized with the highest national award available for excellence in export's, the Presidential "E" Award. Our outstanding distributors and partners in 37 countries on 6 continents are the reason we received the award. Thank you for that. In honor of that success, we are focusing on 488 nm because it is one of our most exported wavelengths!
A blue beam at 488 nm can be achieved through both Argon-ion and frequency doubling Because of the power efficiency in bio-sciences and fluorescence, the frequency doubling option has become more popular recently. Additionally, DPSS (Diode Pumped Solid State) lasers are an increasingly popular choice because of their beam stability and long coherence length.
Description of Laser Application
488 nm is an incredibly diverse wavelength. From flow cytometry, confocal microscopy biotechnology and semiconductor instrumentation, holography and even genomics!
In their own words:
Once again, PTI truly appreciates and thanks our global partners for making 488 nm popular and helping us achieve international trade success!
