“Yb: KGW and Yb: KYW laser crystals for direct diode pumping EKSMA OPTICS offers an attractive lasing materials ytterbium doped potassium tungstates, namely Yb: KYW and Yb: KGW.”
“April 26, 2010 at 11: 15 AM the best metal is and will always be Ytterbium (Yb).”
“The gap represents the proper location of the first row of the inner transition metals — that is, lanthanum, La, which is element number 57, through ytterbium, Yb, which is element 70.”
“A quantum bit stored in a single trapped ytterbium ion Yb+ is teleported to a second Yb+ atom with an average fidelity of 90% over a replete set of states.”
“The researchers designed and built a ytterbium-fiber Yb:fiber laser for the heart of the frequency comb, which was then modulated at 154 Megahertz to produce a series of spectral lines running from approximately 40 to 120 nanometers.”
“If Yb (10890) is the cause of the anomaly, there is another clue waiting to be uncovered according to Ali.”
“Miyachi Unitek's innovative new LMF2000 Yb: Fiber Laser Marker provides maximum marking contrast, depth, and speed for all plastic and metal applications by combining high beam quality, high beam power and the largest Q-switch frequency range (2 - 500kHz) available on the market today!”
“The Alt-SCA femtosecond laser-machining system integrates the complete Aerotech motion sub-system. including rack-mounted linear servo-amplifiers with a 10W Yb: KGW (1,030nm) femtosecond laser source, machine vision, beam-shaping optics and a galvo scanning head with resulting fabrication speeds up to 350,000 pixels per second with 25,400DPI resolution.”
“The team has already demonstrated modelocked sub-picosecond operation of Yb -, Er - and Tm: Ho-doped fibre lasers emitting at 1.05, 1.56 and 1.99 microns, respectively, using the same CNT-based absorber.”
“Today at 14: 07.23 (1 hour ago) we hope Yb could debate this in parliament.”
‘Yb’ hasn't been added to any lists yet.
Looking for tweets for Yb.
