High Voltage Power Supplies Selection Guide

What questions should you be answering when choosing a high voltage power supply?

guide outlines the key specifications to cover in your high voltage power supply selection process to ensure you are picking a correctly specified product to avoid the risks of development delays, increased costs, and slow time-to-market.

TOPTICA's laser combiner engine iChrome CLE includes four laser sources in one compact box. It provides up to 20 mW of output power at 405, 488, 561 and 640 nm each.

All integrated wavelengths are overlapped in one output fiber and an automatic alignment procedure (COOLAC) guarantees an optimal beam position. This enables a straightforward plug & play installation and an unsurpassed stability over the system's lifetime.

New Reviews Journal in Physics

Launching in January 2019, Nature Reviews Physics is an online-only reviews journal that will publish high-quality technical reference, review and commentary articles in all areas of fundamental and applied physics.

Spatiotemporal control of laser intensity    pp262 - 265
Dustin H. Froula, David Turnbull, Andrew S. Davies, Terrance J. Kessler, Dan Haberberger et al.

By combining a chromatic focusing system with chirped laser pulses, the spatiotemporal distribution of the laser pulse is controlled in the focal region. The focal spot propagates over nearly 100 times its Rayleigh length at any velocity.


High-harmonic spectroscopy of ultrafast many-body dynamics in strongly correlated systems    pp266 - 270


A highly nonlinear optical response can be used to time-resolve light-induced phase transitions with few-femtosecond to sub-femtosecond accuracy, paving the way for time-resolving highly correlated many-body dynamics in strongly correlated systems with few-femtosecond accuracy.




Improved photovoltaic performance from inorganic perovskite oxide thin films with mixed crystal phases    pp271 - 276


The use of mixed crystal phases is shown to enhance the power conversion efficiency of inorganic ferroelectric perovskite solar cells.


Focusing of light energy inside a scattering medium by controlling the time-gated multiple light scattering    pp277 - 283
Seungwon Jeong, Ye-Ryoung Lee, Wonjun Choi, Sungsam Kang, Jin Hee Hong et al.

The use of a time-gated reflection matrix of a scattering medium, in particular via using singular value decomposition and injecting light into the largest time-gated eigenchannel, can lead to a more than tenfold enhancement in light energy delivery in comparison with ordinary wave diffusion cases.


Silicon Mie resonators for highly directional light emission from monolayer MoS2    pp284 - 290


Based on a modified Mie scattering theory, several pathways to achieve control over the directionality, polarization state and spectral emission that rely on a coherent coupling of an emitting dipole in monolayer MoS2 to optical resonances of a silicon nanowire are reported.


Ultimate waveform reproducibility of extreme-ultraviolet pulses by high-harmonic generation in quartz    pp291 - 296
M. Garg, H. Y. Kim & E. Goulielmakis

High-harmonic generation in quartz offers immunity to the extreme-ultraviolet waveform against the intensity and phase noise of the driving laser pulse, extending precision waveform synthesis to the extreme ultraviolet.


Bridging ultrahigh-Q devices and photonic circuits    pp297 - 302
Ki Youl Yang, Dong Yoon Oh, Seung Hoon Lee, Qi-Fan Yang, Xu Yi et al.

Using silicon nitride waveguides processed by plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition, full integration of ultrahigh-Q resonators with other photonic devices is now possible, representing a critical advance for future photonic circuits and systems.


Fibre multi-wave mixing combs reveal the broken symmetry of Fermi–Pasta–Ulam recurrence    pp303 - 308
Arnaud Mussot, Corentin Naveau, Matteo Conforti, Alexandre Kudlinski, Francois Copie et al.

The Fermi–Pasta–Ulam recurrence process–the recovery of the initial state of a nonlinear system after a certain time–is observed for the first time in a low-loss optical fibre by building a multi-channel, vector optical-time-domain reflectometer.
