Theory & general application notes

Do you know Acousto-optics ? An RF signal applied to a piezo-electric transducer, bonded to a suitable crystal, will generate an acoustic wave. This acts like a “phase grating”, traveling…

AA Acousto-Optic & RF catalog 2022

AA OPTO-ELECTRONIC proposes the most complete range of Acousto-Optic devices covering wavelengths from 180 nm up to 11 µm including all associated Radio Frequency drivers and power amplifiers.

Fiber Lasers, Introduction

A fiber laser or fibre laser is a laser in which the active gain medium is an optical fiber doped with rare-earth elements such as erbium, ytterbium, neodymium, dysprosium, praseodymium,…

Confocal Microscopy

Confocal microscopy is an imaging technique used to increase micrograph contrast and/or to reconstruct three-dimensional images by using a spatial pinhole to eliminate out-of-focus light or flare in specimens that…

Optical Tweezers

An optical tweezer is a scientific instrument that uses a focused laser beam to provide an attractive or repulsive force, depending on the index mismatch (typically on the order of…

Q-Switches (french article)

Les lasers dits Q-switchés occupent une large place dans la famille des lasers impulsionnels. Cette technique de génération d’impulsions permet en effet d’obtenir de fortes puissances crêtes, indispensables dans de…
