High-Performance Portable Optical Clock
BackgroundThe device described here is best termed an optical frequency standard. This is a device that outputs a laser which has its frequency stabilised to a reference. This reference can either be an atomic/molecular resonance or a mechanical resonance in a macroscopic object. An atomic/molecular reference typically gives the optical frequency s...

Dual Wavelength Pumped Mid-IR Laser
Our technology unlocks a previously under-utilised laser transition in the erbium ion. Using a new technique, we have made the dynamics of this transition competitive and produced significant power from it for the first time.There are currently a few other technologies that provide light in this wavelength band namely GaSb diodes, quantum cascade l...
