Pulse-shape based flow cytometry and cell sorting New APE Research Project

Nearly 2 million people in Germany suffer from inflammatory rheumatic diseases, including 20,000 children. In order to understand the causes of these diseases, measurement methods are necessary that detect and identify pathological changes in cells in a robust manner. Until now, such investigations have often been carried out using flow cytometry methods, which always require complex sample preparation and the staining of the cells to be investigated with cell-specific molecules. The required procedures and reagents can have undesired effects on [...]


Laser World of Photonics China 2019 APE exhibits in Shanghai

APE will participate this year’s Laser World of Photonics China. The exhibition will take place in Shanghai from Wednesday (March 20) to Friday (March 22, 2019). LASER World of PHOTONICS CHINA has become the leading photonics exhibition in Asia. According to the organizers, the show presents “the entire spectrum of photonics in an international environment, tailored to the specific needs of the Chinese market”. APE will be present at 3 booths during the exhibition. With their own booth, the colleagues from [...]


Carmina Debuts at BiOS / Photonics West 2019 Tunable IR Laser

The new Carmina tunable IR light source debuts at SPIE BiOS & Photonics West in San Francisco (2 – 7 February 2019). APE focused on two key elements in its latest development. One of it is a wide tunable IR and mid-IR wavelength range from 2.15 µm to 15 µm, which is the widest of any IR laser system on the market. That wide tuning range and the laser’s high resolution and sensitivity are achieved with an optical parametric oscillator [...]


Christmas 2018 APE says thank you for a successful year!

2018 was a very exciting and successful year for APE. Our thanks go out to our customers, business partners and employees. In 2019 we will again do everything in our power to meet your expectations. Especially during the Christmas season, giving gifts plays an important role. But it is also time to reflect and think about other people who are not doing so well. That’s why we’re not sending gifts to our customers and business partners this year, but instead the [...]


APE at 11th Jena Laser Conference Pulse Duration Characterization

APE is going to participate at the 11th Jena Laser Conference. The conference will take place on November 22 and 23 at the Ernst Abbe University in Jena. Michael Seiler, group leader of the UKP Applications Department of the Ernst Abbe University, will give a presentation on pulse duration characterization. The research on which this presentation is based was carried out together with researchers from APE. For more than 20 years, the event has been a leading regional platform for laser [...]


OSA Laser Congress Mid-IR: Matthias Baudisch at the ASSL 2018

Matthias Baudisch, member of the research and development department of APE, will give an invited talk at the Advanced Solid State Lasers Conference (ASSL) in Boston. Matthias will report on the first ZnGeP2-based femtosecond OPA system driven directly by a thulium-based fiber laser system. The OPA provides medium to long wavelength tunable pulses with Idler energies up to 2.2 μJ (23% quantum efficiency). Congress attendees interested in learning more about the topic or related topics are invited to visit APE’s booth [...]


Pulse Compression Explained Learn Details about Pulse Compression & Dispersion Compensation

Mastering dispersion of a short pulsed laser beam is important to maintain the quality of laser beams and improve its performance for various microscopy applications. For this reason, pulse compression (and stretching) and dispersion compensation are two very important topics that need to be mastered by laser users and microscopy operators. In our article we will explain the cause of dispersion and show how to compensate this effect by the means of a pulse compressor and dispersion management. You [...]


Ultrashortpulse Laser in Industrial Applications APE at LANE 2018, Fürth

“Ultrashortpulse (USP) Lasers in Industrial Applications” is one of the main topics of this year’s LANE 2018, which is a meeting place for laser users and manufacturers and will take place for the 10th time this year. From September 3 to 6, the latest trends and developments in laser micromaterial processing will be presented in Fürth (Germany) and discussed with regard to their possible use in various application areas. APE will not only be represented as an exhibitor this year, [...]
