  • Written by piezosystem jena press release

Ultra-short pulsed lasers are no longer used mainly in the laboratories of basic researchers. They are an important part in the industry for cutting, surface finishing and pattern recognition and also in medical science. In medical science amongst others they are in place for the detection of cancer cells. Specialized microscopes combined with the ultra-short pulse laser reach a higher resolution. Therefore it is possible to differ healthy cells from cancer cells.
