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.
