Test Components with NIST Traceability

Lenox Laser now offers integrity test components. These components are close-tolerance flow-calibrated micro leak standards for integrity testing for the pharmaceutical industry and have NIST traceability. Standard sizes include, but are not limited to, 1um, 5um, 10 um, 15um, 20 um, 25um and 50 um, with measured flow rates of .02 sccms to 43 sccms at 15 psig of air test pressure.

Lenox Laser's catalog of flow-calibrated orifices can be found at Flow Orifices - Lenox Laser.
Please visit Exact Leaks - Lenox Laser for more information on micro leaks for integrity testing or call 410-592-3106.

Arrays with millions of small micron holes

Lenox Laser has once again pioneered a new small hole drilling capability.  We are now able to drill arrays with millions of micro holes down to 1 micron in size.  We are able to drill in a myriad of materials (Tungsten, Moly, Stainless Steel, Silicon) with spacing down to 15 microns.  The hole sizes, shapes, and spacing can all be customized per your application.  Some ground breaking applications include nozzles, lab on chip sensors, DNA analysis, beam shaping, and CMOS biotechnologies.

Please check out our Scanning Electron Microscope(SEM) photos showing a sample of our arrays.

Lenox Laser's 30th Anniversary Year Brings More Industry Breakthroughs.

We have been pretty busy this past year- here is a quick update on a little of what we have been doing!

Not only has Lenox Laser set the standard for sub-micron hole drilling repeatability, but we also do it fast.  We can now produce over 1 million holes per hour, setting a new record in laser drilling .  That may be more holes (total) than we have drilled in our 30 years of operation.

The Archimedes Palimpsest and Lenox Laser

Lenox Laser, as mentioned in the previous post, is involved and relevant to current events such as the recent Nobel Prize in Physics and the James Webb Telescope.

Another example is the Archimedes Palimpsest at Baltimore's Walters Art Museum. It is on a special exhibit right now until January 2012, and, believes it or not, Lenox Laser was involved with this as well! Lenox Laser was involved in the key science that allowed them to see past the monk's writings and read Archimedes' instead. SLAC was the organization that was heading up the research to better read the obscured text, and they contacted Lenox Laser for the special tungsten part.

From our earlier blog post about the Archimedes Palimpsest from 2006- it explains Lenox Laser's key role.

The Archimedes Palimpsest writings lingered unseen for centuries, seemingly purged from the documents forever, until Professor Heiburg began to review small scrawls beneath the visible text. At SLAC, a revolutionary modern analysis of the writing medium has been made - revealing they do contain historically important information left behind by Archimedes, Hidden from the naked eye.When confronted with an engineering challenge involving their Synchrotron X-Ray source, SLAC issued a request to Lenox Laser to produce microscopic laser-drilled holes in thin Tungsten film. These small apertures would prove critical to the team's success in uncovering the Palimpsest's "hidden treasure".

Nobel Physics Prizes and 2nd International Light Seminar

From left to right: Joseph d'Entremont, Alex Dudelzak, Greg Solyar, John Mather, and Reza Sarhangi
Earlier this month, on October 4, we had Dr John C Mather speak at our 2nd International Light Seminar. He received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2006 for his part in the COBE mission regarding the Big Bang theory and the expansion of the universe.

On that very day, the Nobel Prize in Physics was given to another group of scientists also doing work on dark matter and the expansion of the universe, showing that it was in fact rapidly expanding, not slowing down as previously thought. You can read more about this year's Nobel prize in their press release here. Dr Mather alluded to the recent prize and their work in his talk since it related specifically to the things he has studied. For Dr Mather's talk, visit our website and click on "Light Seminar", or click here.

2nd International Light Seminar

Yesterday was our 2nd International Light Seminar, and it went very well! Everyone enjoyed themselves and learned something new. The keynote speaker, Dr John C Mather, arrived just before lunch and graciously spent the rest of the afternoon with us. We are in the process of downloading the pictures, video, and other material and will be posting them on here and our Flickr site as soon as we can.

Dr John C Mather is our guest and speaker of honor at our 2nd International Light Seminar here at Lenox Laser. For a more complete biography and list of accomplishments, you can see John Mather's NASA profile

We are very happy to have him and continue to have Nobel Prize winners speak at our seminars. His chosen topic is: "The Universe in a Nutshell." I don't think he'll have to worry about finishing early with that topic!
