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 [...]

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 [...]

3D Imaging Techniques And Driverless Cars

2020-04-28T18:13:31-04:00

In 2013, on the streets of Parma, Italy, an autonomous vehicle successfully navigated a route on a public roadway without a driver. The course was relatively short, but, it did include a series of complex traffic scenarios, roundabouts, merging traffic lanes, lights and pedestrian crossings. This was accomplished using a [...]

Using Biomedical Lasers And Cameras To Detect Cancer

2020-04-28T18:13:32-04:00

Biomedical engineers at Duke University have discovered a way to detect signs of cancer on a cell-by-cell basis using a technique that involves two lasers and a camera. The technique, using biomedical lasers and cameras, can assess an individual cell’s stiffness using patterns that appear within its internal structure. Several [...]
