Laser, Optical & Photonics Science

The acronym of LASER is Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. According to physics light is an electromagnetic wave which has its own brightness and color. It vibrates at a certain angle, called polarization. The lasers can be used to focus very small diameters where the concentration of light energy becomes so great that you can cut, drill or turn with the beam. The lasers can illuminate and examine very tiny details with lasers, thus it is used in surgical appliances and CD players as well. Lasers are monochromatic, so it has only one light wavelength. It is a study that deals with generation of electromagnetic radiation, properties of that radiation. It is also deals with the interaction of that radiation with the matter. The researchers develop the light source that span the electromagnetic radiation from microwaves to X-rays. This includes the generation and detection of light and linear and nonlinear process. Some of the applications are low coherence interferometry, spectroscopy, and Laser spectroscopy. The application optical science creates advancements in medicine, manufacturing, communication and entertainment.

 

Optical Communication & Networking

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser technique directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light at irregular skin, precisely removing skin layer by layer. This popular procedure is also called lasabrasion, laser peel, or laser vaporization. The two types of lasers most commonly used in laser resurfacing are carbon dioxide (CO2) and erbium. Each laser vaporizes skin cells damaged at the surface-level. This method has been used for years to treat different skin issues, including wrinkles, scars, warts, enlarged oil glands on the nose, and other conditions. The newest version of CO2 laser resurfacing (fractionated CO2) uses very short pulsed light energy (known as ultra-pulse) or continuous light beams that are delivered in a scanning pattern to remove thin layers of skin with minimal heat damage. One of the benefits of erbium laser resurfacing is minimal burning of surrounding tissue. This laser causes fewer side effects. such as swelling, bruising, and redness. So your recovery time should be faster than with CO2 laser resurfacing.

 

Nano Optics & Photonics

Nano photonics is the study of the behavior of light on the nano meter scale, and of the interaction of nano meter-scale objects with light. It is a branch of optics, electrical engineering, and nanotechnology. It often involves metallic components, which can transport and focus light by means of surface plasmon polaritons. Photonics is the physical science of light (photon) generation, detection, and manipulation through emission, transmission, modulation, signal processing, switching, amplification, and detection/sensing. Though covering all light's technical applications over the whole spectrum, most photonic applications are in the range of visible and near-infrared light.

 

Fiber Laser Technology

Fiber lasers are basically different from other laser types; in a fiber laser the active medium that produces the laser beam is actually isolated within the fiber optic itself. This discriminates them from fiber-delivered lasers where the beam is merely transported from the laser resonator to the beam delivery optics. Fiber lasers are now widely known because of its most focusable or highest brightness of any laser type. The essentially scalable concept of fiber lasers has been used to scale multimode fiber lasers up to the output power greater than 50 kW and single mode fiber lasers capable of 10kW in power. Optical imaging is an imaging technique that usually describes the behavior of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light used in imaging. Since light is an electromagnetic wave, similar portents occur in X-rays, microwaves, radio waves. Fiber laser technology include Double-clad fibre, Power scaling, Mode locking, Drack solution fibre laser, Multiwavelength fibre laser.

 

Optics & Laser in Medicine

Trials with laser beam showed that a finely focused beam from a carbon dioxide gas laser could cut through human tissue effortlessly and neatly. The surgeon could direct the beam from any angle by using a mirror attached on a movable metal arm. Lasers were considered as most effective in operating on parts that are easy to reach-areas on the body's exterior, including the ears, skin, mouth, eyes and nose. But in recent years doctors have established the remarkable progress in emerging laser techniques for use in internal exploration and surgery. For illustration lasers are gradually used to clean plaque from people's arteries.

 

Surface Enhanced Spectroscopy

Surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) or Surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy is a surface sensitive technique which enhances Raman scattering by the molecules adsorbed on the rough metal surfaces or by the nanostructures such as plasmonic magnetic silica nanotubes and the enhancement factor can be as much as 1010 to 1011, which means the technique may detect single molecules. The electromagnetic theory recommends the excitation of localized surface Plasmon’s, and then the chemical theory recommends the formation of charge transfer complexes. Electromagnetic theory can put on even in those cases where the specimen is physically absorbed only to the surface. It has been shown lately that SERS enhancement can occur even when excited molecule is relatively far apart from the surface which swarms metallic nanoparticles enabling surface Plasmon phenomenon.

 

Laser & Nonlinear Optics

Nonlinear optics (NLO) is the branch of optics that describes the behavior    of light in nonlinear media, that is, media in which the dielectric polarization P responds nonlinearly to the electric field E of the light. The nonlinearity is typically observed only at very high light intensities (values of atomic electric fields, typically 108 V/m) such as those provided by lasers. Above the Schwinger limit, the vacuum itself is expected to become nonlinear. In nonlinear optics, the superposition principle no longer holds.

Market Analysis


A laser differs from other sources of light in that it emits light coherently, spatially and temporally. Spatial coherence allows a laser to be focused to a tight spot, enabling applications such as laser cutting and lithography. Spatial coherence also allows a laser beam to stay narrow over great distances, enabling applications such as laser pointers.

Photonics is the physical science of light (photon) generation, detection, and manipulation through emission, transmission, modulation, signal processing, switching, amplification, and detection/sensing. Photonics is closely related to optics. Classical optics long preceded the discovery that light is quantized, when Albert Einstein famously explained the photoelectric effect in 1905. Optics tools include the refracting lens, the reflecting mirror, and various optical components and instruments developed throughout the 15th to 19th centuries.

Optics is the branch of physics which deals with the behaviour and properties of light, including its interactions with matter and the construction of instruments that use or detect it. Optics usually describes the behaviour of visible, ultraviolet, and infrared light. Because light is an electromagnetic wave, other forms of electromagnetic radiation such as X-rays, microwaves, and radio waves exhibit similar properties. Optical science is relevant to and studied in many related disciplines including astronomy, various engineering fields, photography, and medicine (particularly ophthalmology and optometry).
