Latest News

Aug 2019: The Resonance Ionization Laser Ion Source (RILIS) group at CERN have reported a tunable diamond laser in the blue for beamline applications.

Jul 2019: Thanks to Seeker for this cool little clip on our 'super lasers'.

Feb 2019: Xuezong Yang's work on single-frequency power lasers in the visible is an Editors Pick in Optics Letters.

Jan 2019: Physical Review Letters has published our recent results on single-atom layer removal of diamond surface using a UV laser beam. Based on model calculations, it looks like 2-photon ejection of surface carbonyl groups could be a key mechanism.

Nov 2018: Prof Mildren has been elected an OSA Fellow.

Oct 2018: New results in UV-induced surface etchiing and modification of diamond presented at World Congress in Nano Science and Technology, Potsdam.

Aug 2018: We have been accepted into the Europhoton postdeadline session for a report on free-space Brillouin lasers.

Jul 2018: Congratulations to Zhenxu Bai, who takes home another award - the Springer-Nature "Rising Stars of Light Prize" at the Light Conference 2018.

May 2018: Zhenxu Bai wins the presitigious 2018 Teddy Laurin Scholarship for his work on diamond Brillouin lasers - congratulations Bai! See also article in Photonics.Com and Photonics Spectra.

May 2018: Rob Williams and Zhenxu Bai are reporting a breakthrough in free-space Brillouin lasers at CLEO this month. A new platform for extreme laser devices.

Apr 2018: A new summary paper on our work on high power diamond lasers has just appeared as invited paper in IEEE Journal of Selected Topics in Quantum Electronics (Early Posting) .
