The Russian Academy of Science has chosen Zecotek Photonics' green fibre laser as the main source for Raman spectrometers in solid-state research.
Zecotek's GFL 550 will also be used for confocal microscopy and in a variety of other roles as the academy continues its programme of biomedical research.
Dr AD Zerrouk, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Zecotek, said the firm's lasers represent an important new tool in biomedical instrumentation and flow cytometry.
"Our green fibre laser allows for arbitrary wavelengths in the green spectrum with significantly improved sensitivity of detection, and it is better suited to a wider range of preferred biological markers," he commented.
The lasers are available in a range of operating wavelengths and feature tuneability greater than 10 nm, as well as multi-wavelength and narrow-band options.
Zecotek recently received its fourth payment from the Government of Singapore's Economic Development Board, covering a portion of the firm's research and development costs.
