On April 26th, the impressive Four-Laser Guide Star Facility (4LGSF) was fully operational for the first time at the European Southern Observatory’s (ESO) Very Large Telescope (VLT) of the Paranal Observatory in Chile.
In February 2016 the European commission approved funding for the new project PIX4life as part of the EU’s “Photonics21” program. TOPTICA is proud to support this unique program which pledges € 8.5 million to a consortium of several partners from academia and industry.
In order to support TOPTICA’s continuous growth, they have added a new OEM Senior Business Development Manager, Dr. Holger Stupp. His Ph. D. is in Physics, specifically in the field of time-resolved photoelectron spectroscopy under laser irradiation.
New products to be shown at the Moscone Center in San Francisco from February 13th – 18th include ultra-stable diode lasers and powerful femtosecond fiber lasers, as well as frequency combs and terahertz systems.
The FemtoFiber ultra NIR is a cost-effective, turnkey laser system that provides femtosecond laser pulses of more than 500 mW average power and an excellent beam quality.
