Laser Diode

2020-05-03T11:58:52-04:00

An injection laser diode (ILD), diode laser, or laser diode (LD), is a semiconductor device similar to a light-emitting diode in which a laser beam is created at the diode’s junction.  Laser diodes can directly convert electrical energy into light. Driven by voltage, the doped p-n-transition allows for recombination of an electron [...]

Medical Proton Imaging

2020-04-28T18:12:25-04:00

The recent research on medical proton imaging is by and large motivated by the desire to gather information using a less invasive source such as X-rays.  With the use of a proton microscope, it is possible to image biological tissue without leaving any radiating material behind in the tissues of [...]

What Is Laser Technology

2020-05-03T11:58:52-04:00

To answer the question, what is laser technology and where it can be used, it’s important to understand exactly to what the term laser refers. The term itself originated as an acronym ‘light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation’. in other words, ‘laser’ is a device that emits light through [...]
