New picosecond pulsed diode lasers at 500 nm and 510 nm by PicoQuant

The new green lasers open the door for new applications in Life and Material Sciences

PicoQuant GmbH announces the release of the long-awaited 500 nm and 510 nm picosecond pulsed diode laser heads. For the first time, green laser emission is not generated by wavelength conversion techniques, but directly generated by a semiconductor laser diode. The availability of the new wavelengths opens the door for entirely new applications in bioanalytics, biochemistry, genetics, semiconductor characterisation and quality control.
