New applicants have been developed by the team of engineers and scientists with the advancements in technology which have been pushing innovation with lasers made by using in-house laser technologies. There has been focus on three main areas by the researchers in which the first is biophotonics through which life sciences and light based technologies are combined.
Chemical sensing and quantum technology are second and third respectively which are helpful in creating communication systems, next generation of sensors as well as ways of simulating complex computation. In order to develop light based system technology through which light sheet microscopes can be used, the team of engineers has been worked with a group of researchers.
A resolution which is high enough for the user in order to see the details of individual cells is enabled by this as well as in order to observe large number of cells in tissues samples of up to 1 mm sized cubes, a field of view of large enough is provided. In understanding the concept of how neurons interconnect and how the brain works, this technology is very useful along with degenerative brain disease can also be prevented.
In development the areas of regenerative medicine, this technology can also be very useful where stem cells put to use in order to regenerate organs like the pancreas and brain material etc as the demand for neuroscience development is increasing. The biochemistry of cells can be read as well as immediate feedback can be provided in another optical system which is enabling point of care diagnosis and decreasing health care cost.
The presence and concentrations can also be detected by the lasers in chemical sensing. Most of the molecules display strong absorption at mid-infrared and terahertz wavelengths. According to the researchers, there is a particular area for the spectrum where light and absorption like fingerprints for several chemicals absorbed by molecules.
Chemical detection, monitoring of greenhouse gases and pollutants according to the environment, medical diagnostics, prospecting for oil and gas reserve and infrared countermeasures as well are included in other applicants.
According to the researchers, in order to make cool the atoms, they have been held between magnetic coils and illuminated with the help of two lasers in each of the three dimensions. The first type of lasers is the sources of single frequency or single wavelength light sources. They appear to be only a single color of light but they are a spread of colors in reality.
