PicoQuant will introduce a new high-power green picosecond pulsed laser head at Photonics West 2012

Besides the green laser head, the German company will introduce two more new developments to the visitors

PicoQuant GmbH will introduce three new products at SPIE Photonics West held January 21 to 26, 2012 in San Francisco, USA: a high-power green picosecond pulsed laser head that provides up to 200 mW average power, a laser system for the generation of nanosecond pulses with programmable pulse shape, and the fastest commercial quantum random number generator (QRNG) available to the market.

PicoQuant releases the fastest commercial quantum random number generator

A new development from the field of quantum physics is now available as a turn-key product

PicoQuant GmbH, specialist in Single Photon Counting Instrumentation has released the fastest photonic quantum random number generator available today. The “PQRNG 150” will be shown to the public for the first time at PicoQuant's booth at Photonics West exhibition in San Francisco, January 21 to 26, 2012. The new quantum random number generator provides turn-key usability, a high bit rate, up to 150 Mbits/s, delivered over USB, and long term statistical data quality. The “PQRNG 150” is based on measuring the arrival times of single photons, governed by the inherent indeterminism of quantum physics.

PicoQuant releases a polarization extension for laser scanning microscopes

The new polarization unit allows to measure fluorescence anisotropy

PicoQuant GmbH has released a polarization extension for its upgrade kit for confocal laser scanning microscopes (LSM). Since several years, time-resolved fluorescence measurements can be performed with commercially available LSM that have been upgraded with a suited upgrade kit. With the new extension, upgraded microscopes can now also perform polarization measurements.

PicoQuant ist Konsortiumpartner des EU-Projektes „CHARMING“

Das Berliner Unternehmen beteiligt sich an der Entwicklung von Faserverstärkern für die hochauflösende Fluoreszenzspektroskopie

Die PicoQuant GmbH, Spezialistin auf dem Gebiet zeitaufgelöster Fluoreszenzsysteme und Pikosekunden-Laserdioden präsentiert sich als Partner des mit drei Millionen Euro geförderten Projektvorhabens „CHARMING“ der Europäischen Kommission. Ziel des Projektes ist die Entwicklung geeigneter Faserverstärker für gewinngeschaltete Infrarot- Laserdioden sowie eine anschließende Frequenzkonversion in neuartigen optischen Fasern. Anwendung soll die neue Lasertechnologie in der Fluoreszenzspektroskopie und der konfokalen Fluoreszenzmikroskopie finden. Startschuss für das Projekt war der 01. September 2011 und ist auf 3 Jahre Laufzeit festgesetzt.
