Today, on the 16th May, we celebrate the International Day of Light, a global initiative that provides an annual focal point for the continued appreciation of light and the central role taht it plays in our lives.
A brief introduction into Raman spectroscopy and related applications. An overview over the physics, the requirements on the laser source and the detector properties necessary to detect a proper spectrum.
Lasers are the ultimate surgery tool in ophthalmology and retinal laser photocoagulation is the gold standard for the treatment of common eye deseases such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and diabetic retinopathy.
A modelling method of laser diodes optical output power, especially for mid-high power diodes working in continuous wave (CW) or quasi continuous wave (QCW) modes, and focusing in the optical output power dependency on temperature and its model implementation in Pspice, targeting its computer simulation.
We have started a new research and development project, Calibend. The project aims to develop and test a flexible, cost-effective laser-heating module for SME in the sector of sheet metal processing used for bending high-strength steel. The project is launched under the Acció Programme of the Generalitat de Catalynia, Spain.
What if different wavelengths were combined in the same laser systems, so the full range from 760nm to 1064nm could be covered by a single high power diode laser source? This is now possible at Monocrom thanks to Thea, a smart combination of re-shaping & combining optics along with the use of a liquid optical fibre.
The Exomars project of the European Space Agency is the biggest challenge in laser development that Monocrom has faced until today. The program, established for the investigation of vestiges of life on Mars, has given Monocrom the development of a diode pumped solid state laser for the mission to the Red Planet in 2020.
Laser shows are not so boring when a smile is out there. Join us on 28 June and participate in our smile-giving campaign to support education, nutrition and life to a struggling family in Mumbai, India.
CIAC, or the Cluster of the Automotive Industry in Catalonia, selected Monocrom to participate in the 31st IESE Auto, which is one of the most important symposiums in the automotive industry in Europe. The title for this year was “The Battle for Automotive”, referring to the current situation of the sector, with the Industry 4.0 opening the door to new players such as the “big data” companies, and with the new trends of digitalization of all business areas, increased regulation, irruption of the electric car, and so on. Taking into account the current trends, it is very important to improve the car consume efficiency while complying with safety regulations.
Electronica Planet E is the WorldÂ´s Leading Trade Fair for Electronics Components, Systems and Applications. It is held biannually in the German city of Munich. The 2016 show has been a big success with more than 2 900 exhibitors and 73 000 visitors attending.
In the framework of the International Day of Photonics, held on 21 Oct, we welcomed students to our major facilities in Vilanova i la Geltrú. Staff of the company (engineers and physicists specialized in Photonics) explained how our laser devices are designed and manufactured in our labs and R&D department.
A new project called HIP-Lasers has recently taken its first steps. The project is being co-founded by the Eurostars program, and its consortium is formed by Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (Germany), a research...
October 21 is the International Day of Photonics. We have organized a training session on lasers and their applications for students of the Polytechnic University of Catalonia, Engineering School of Vilanova i la Geltrú.
