Thorlabs

Thorlabs
Diode laser with coupling optics.

Thorlabs is a New Jersey based manufacturer of photonic tools and systems that offers a wide range of products from optics and opto-mechanical positioning components to sophisticated optical imaging systems. Thorlabs serves the needs of researchers and engineers worldwide; including the investigators of novel optical problems, designers and of users of optical apparatus of all kinds, and educators and businesses who harness the power of photonics. Customers include the National Labs, universities, medical research facilities, commercial laser companies, the military, defense companies, and both large and small photonics manufacturers worldwide.

Optek is official partner of Thorlabs in Latvia and delivers their products benefiting end-users with local support and service.

In our own scientific and development work we use mostly Thorlabs products and are really satisfied with their quality and durability. One such example is shown in the image on the right - optical system consisting of stabilized 780 nm ECDL laser and a frequency reference Rb cell. We have also delivered and installed many advanced Thorlabs products, such as extra large optical tables, optical coherence tomography systems, etc. All scientific institutions in Latvia use our delivered Thorlabs products, as well as Tartu University, etc.

Cobolt

 Cobolt is at the very forefront of the industry in the development and manufacture of high performance lasers. Cobolt provides ultra low noise and single mode solid-state lasers with a high level of wavelength flexibility in the UV-Visible-NIR spectral range. In Baltics the Cobolt lasers are applied when high stability and high coherence light sources are necessary, for example, in holography (Daugavpils University, Institute of Solid State Physics of University of Latvia, Riga Technical University) or in Raman spectroscopy (Kaunas University of Technology). The Cobolt lasers are exceptional for imaging with Raman confocal microscopy. Here are some of the confocal Raman microscopy examples:

 

 

Neural cell imaging with Raman
