Photonics West

Come and meet us at booth #3301 at the Photonics West exhibition in San Francisco from Jan. 31st to Feb. 2nd 2023.

Tailor-made diets with the NUTRISHIELD project

The NUTRISHIELD project aims at creating a personalised health platform for the young including tailor-made diets based on analysis of a wide range of biomarkers related to nutrition and health disorders. This research, performed in collaboration with Radboud University and the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, Italy, is part of the EU’s FOOD 2030 research […]

Beam Combiner

Alpes Beam Combiner

Beam Combiner The Alpes Lasers Beam Combiner is a platform that allows the output beam of two different quantum cascade lasers in standard HHL housing to be combined into a single beam. The system uses fixed optics to rotate the polarization of one of the beam and combines them using a polarizing plate, resulting in […]

S-4 CW Driver

S-4 CW Driver High Compliance CW Driver for Quantum Cascade Lasers The S-4 High Compliance CW driver is compatible with QCL or ICL lasers from Alpes Lasers and is available either as a standalone driver or within a Kit combined the TC-3 Temperature controller, lasers and cables to constitue a complete light emitting source. The […]

QC-XT Laser used for CO/N2O/CO2/H2O detection

A team from the University of Bari in collaboration with Alpes Lasers uses a QC-XT laser combined with a quartz-enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy setup to measure carbon monoxide (CO), nitrous oxide (N2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), and water vapor (H2O) simultaneously. The device emission wavelengths ranged from 2100 cm-1 to 2250 cm-1 and the achieved minimum detection […]

Interband Cascade Lasers are available as a  broad gain lasers suitable for use in an external cavity. You can find here a recent Optics Express article available in open access describing the performance of the external cavity system, or come to Photonics West 2022 to […]

Tumor and Lymph Node on Chip

Alpes Lasers joins project on tumor and lymph node on Chip for cancer studies Alpes Lasers is a partner in the recently-launched Tumor-LN-oC project which proposes the development of a tumor-lymph node-on-chip (Tumor-LN-oC) platform composed of 3D tissue models and microfluidic chips.Using sensitive off-chip proteomic and molecular approaches this platform will allow the identification of novel biomarkers characterizing metastatic cells which […]

PWest 2021

In 2021 the Photonics West exhibition is virtual only but as always we will be present! Come to our booth to chat or discuss via video anytime from March 8th to 11th!

ICL-based External Cavities

Alpes Lasers now offers Broad Gain Interband Cascade Laser (ICL) chips for use in External cavity systems. ICLs allow emission at shorter wavelengths than traditional QCLs, many of which are particularly interesting for hydrocarbon detection. The initially offered chip covers the range 3.2-3.6 μm (2820-3070 cm-1) which contains strong absorption lines for CH4, C2H6, HCl and CH2O (formaldehyde).Contact us at sales@alpeslasers.ch for more information!
