Diffration Based Alignment for Lasers
An innovative diffraction-based alignment system to achieve beam alignment through a laser system with increased accuracy and flexibility.IMAGES DESCRIPTIONThe use of alignment references is common practice to assist in the building and in the day-to-day alignment process of laser chains. Traditionally, alignment references for large-a...

e-Black Surfaces
STFC's Accelerator Science department has developed a method of laser ablation to reduce secondary as well as photo-electron yields in particle accelerators and RF waveguides to less than 1. Secondary electron emission is an unwanted effect limiting the performance of high energy colliders, storage rings and dumping rings such as the Large Hadron C...

Circular Dichroism Spectroscopy
Circular dichroism (CD) is the differential absorption between left and right circularly polarised light on passage through a sample. Measurement of CD gives structural and enantiomeric information on proteins, other biomolecules and liquid crystals. STFC’s new circular dichroism detection system overcomes the sensitivity and speed issues fac...
