- New Firmware for SLICE-QTC (4/23/2019) - We have released new revisions of firmware for the SLICE-QTC Four-Channel Temperature Controller. System Controller 1.24 and QTC 1.38 along with update instructions are now available on GitHub. 1.24 and 1.38 have new features and substantial stability improvements over the previous revisions. We strongly urge all SLICE users to update today!
- Intern Positions at Vescent (4/23/2019) - Vescent Photonics is seeking two interns for the summer of 2019. Come join us in Arvada, CO and enjoy on-the-job training while making a measurable difference to our market reach. Do you enjoy controlling instruments via embedded software and firmware? We are looking for a programmer to grow their skill set while expanding the capabilities […]
- Micro-Resonator Soliton (3/18/2019) - Nicolas Volet et al. have reported on “Micro-Resonator Soliton Generated Directly with a Diode Laser” in Laser & Photonics Review. An external-cavity diode laser for 1550-nm wavelength is reported with ultra-low noise, high power coupled to a fiber, and fast tunability. These characteristics enable the generation of an optical frequency comb in a silica micro-resonator with […]
- Vescent is seeking a Digital Marketing Intern (3/5/2019) - Vescent Photonics, a leading designer of and photonics tools in the Denver, area, is looking for an intern to assist in digital marketing. This is a great opportunity to develop your marketing skills and put them to work. See details here.
- Phase Noise Between Two Phase Locked DBR Lasers (12/5/2018) - We measured the phase noise between two phase locked D2-100 DBR Lasers. The phase noise (integrated from 1 Hz to 100 kHz) was measured to be <1.1 mrad. Read the complete application note here.
