SPIE Optics East 2006 on SPIE.TV

The interdisciplinary nature of SPIE Optics East 2007, combined with the market-focused events for optic and photonic systems, components, devices and services, provided the ideal venue for the sharing of ideas and insights. In this spirit, Claire F. Gmachl and Tuan Vo-Dinh sat down with us to share their expertise on quantum cascade lasers and cellular imaging, respectively.


These fascinating interviews were captured for webcast and are now available to view anytime-at no charge to you-courtesy of SPIE.TV. Thank you for watching!


Quantum Cascade Lasers

Claire F. Gmachl, Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Princeton University


The quantum cascade laser's unique properties-especially its power, tuning range and ability to work pulsed at room temperature-make it ideal for a variety of gas sensing applications.
