Frequency Resolved Optical Gating

Posted on: March 18th, 2021

In this application note, we will explore one of the most popular techniques for ultrafast laser characterization, which relies heavily on spectral measurement action: frequency-resolved optical gating (FROG). As well as the key requirements for spectrometers used in FROG systems. This aids mode-locked lasers in providing accurate and reliable laser characterization systems.

Understanding Spectrometer Resolution Specifications

Posted on: January 11th, 2021

Resolution is one of the key specifications discussed in a spectrometer purchase decision. But resolution specifications can be overstated by manufacturers if the proper means of measuring resolution is not well understood by spectrometer buyers. For one thing, maximizing resolution might not be recommended for specific applications and can actually impede performance. The purpose of…

Introducing our new High-Power Light Sources for Fluorescence Applications!

Posted on: November 21st, 2020

Now Available! Our new Avalight-HPLED-285 is here! With a limited wavelength range, this new light source is ideal for fluorescence measurements. Due to the absence of emitted light in the fluorescence range, the fluorescence effect can easily be detected. High powered and compact, this new light source version was made for more demanding applications. Benefits…

Portable LIBS Instrument Design Webinar

Posted on: October 13th, 2020

Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy is used for elemental analysis and utilizes high-powered lasers and spectrometer to analyze a minute sample. While this technique has known for quite sometime, it is only recently that technology has advanced to the point that portable and even handheld instrument design was made possible. Join Rob Chimenti of RVC Photonics, and…

Fluorescence Measurements with the AvaFluorimeter

Posted on: April 30th, 2020

A benchtop fluorimeter system provides for the ability to scan across wavelengths of excitation in order to find optimal excitation and emission combinations for fluorescent samples.  A common limitation of fiber optic spectroscopy systems is that they typically only allow for isolating excitation wavelengths one at a time using bandpass or other optical filters.  Fluorescence…
