APE’s Review of 2020

The year 2020 was a special year for all of us. Particularly Corona has turned our lives upside down and will remain in our memories. With strict adherence to hygiene regulations, we had to adapt our working methods quickly to the situation. Many APE employees are working from their home office. Real conferences have been replaced by virtual meetings. Installations were performed by our service partners on site, often with the technical support of our experts via remote access. This...


Tuneable Laser System by APE for the Calibration of Radiometric and Photometric Detectors

APE talks with Dr. Philipp Schneider from the working group “Spectoradiometry” of PTB (Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt) about the use of APE’s tuneable laser system for the calibration of radiometric and photometric detectors Dr. Philipp Schneider is a scientist at PTB, the German National Metrology Institute. No scientific experiment, no industrial process and no transport of goods and commodities can do without quantification and PTB provides the 'backbone' for this, the traceability to the International System of Units (SI). An important role is...


Picosecond Laser picoEmerald at Zhejiang University

Delivery and commissioning of larger laser systems usually require highly qualified engineers to install such equipment. Customers must be able to rely on manufacturers sending engineers to any place in the world for installation and commissioning. However, the current pandemic situation and the associated travel restrictions have significantly impaired this actually common way of working. Professor Delong Zhang of Zhejiang University (China) was concerned that a planned installation of a new high-performance laser system in his laboratory could not take...


APE Article Honored by Wileys Physics’ Best

APE is proud that the special issue "Physics' Best 2020" presents the advanced technology of our type 2 autocorrelator. The special edition of Wiley is published only once a year and presents a very limited selection of the best articles from the last 12 months. With type II autocorrelators, like the pulseCheck Type 2, a cost-efficient high-contrast device is available that can both measure the pulse duration and provide insights into a detailed pulse topography that is not visible with...
