The CTL is the ultimate choice when looking for a laser that is widely tunable without any mode-hopping. It has high power, a narrow linewidth and high absolute and relative wavelength accuracy. Wide scans can be performed with highest resolution. With the fully digital, low noise and drift DLC pro controller, the CTL laser is easy to use and operate via touch-screen and knobs as well as via remote PC GUI and command language.

Find the best solution for your application.

Review Articles

Advances in photonic quantum sensing    pp724 - 733
S. Pirandola, B. R. Bardhan, T. Gehring, C. Weedbrook & S. Lloyd

This Review discusses emerging applications of photonic quantum sensing. The theoretical and experimental developments of quantum reading of classical data, quantum illumination of targets, and optical resolution beyond the Rayleigh limit are described.


Giant broadband refraction in the visible in a ferroelectric perovskite    pp734 - 738
F. Di Mei, L. Falsi, M. Flammini, D. Pierangeli, P. Di Porto et al.

When cooled, the ferroelectric perovskite KTN:Li is found to possess a giant refractive index of n > 26 in the visible region.

Dissipative self-organization in optical space    pp739 - 743
Chad Ropp, Nicolas Bachelard, David Barth, Yuan Wang & Xiang Zhang

Self-organization far from thermal equilibrium in a thermo-optical feedback process occurring in a random array of Fabry–PĂ©rot resonators is shown, adding new capability to dynamic self-assembly in creating materials with fine-tuned adaptive responses.

Thermal-motion-induced non-reciprocal quantum optical system    pp744 - 748
Shicheng Zhang, Yiqi Hu, Gongwei Lin, Yueping Niu, Keyu Xia et al.

Optical non-reciprocity is experimentally realized with Rb atoms embedded in a ring cavity at room temperature. Random thermal motion of the atoms causes the probe-direction-dependent response assisted by a unidirectional control laser field.

Microwave plasmonic mixer in a transparent fibre–wireless link    pp749 - 753
Y. Salamin, B. Baeuerle, W. Heni, F. C. Abrecht, A. Josten et al.

A direct wireless-to-optical receiver in a transparent optical link is achieved, thanks to a subwavelength two-dimensionally localized gap-plasmon mixer encoding wireless information directly onto optical signals.

Experimental quantum fast hitting on hexagonal graphs    pp754 - 758
Hao Tang, Carlo Di Franco, Zi-Yu Shi, Tian-Shen He, Zhen Feng et al.

A quantum walker on a hexagonal glued array of optical waveguides is made inside a glass substrate. The optimal hitting time increases linearly with the layer depth, giving a quadratic speed-up over the hitting performance by classical random walks.


Experimental Greenberger–Horne–Zeilinger entanglement beyond qubits    pp759 - 764
Manuel Erhard, Mehul Malik, Mario Krenn & Anton Zeilinger

A (3, 3, 2) multiphoton entangled state, where two photons reside in a three-dimensional space while the third lives in a qubit space, is generated by developing a high-brightness four-photon source entangled in orbital angular momentum.

Linear frequency conversion via sudden merging of meta-atoms in time-variant metasurfaces    pp765 - 773
Kanghee Lee, Jaehyeon Son, Jagang Park, Byungsoo Kang, Wonju Jeon et al.

A linear frequency conversion based on the sudden merging of two distinct split-ring resonators into a single resonator on a rapidly time-variant THz metasurface is reported.

Coherent storage and manipulation of broadband photons via dynamically controlled Autler–Townes splitting    pp774 - 782
Erhan Saglamyurek, Taras Hrushevskyi, Anindya Rastogi, Khabat Heshami & Lindsay J. LeBlanc

A broadband-light storage technique using the Autler–Townes effect is demonstrated in a system of cold Rb atoms. It overcomes both inherent and technical limitations of the established schemes for high-speed and long-lived optical quantum memories.

High-efficiency perovskite–polymer bulk heterostructure light-emitting diodes    pp783 - 789
Baodan Zhao, Sai Bai, Vincent Kim, Robin Lamboll, Ravichandran Shivanna et al.

Near-infrared perovskite–polymer light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with external quantum efficiencies of up to 20.1% are reported.
