CNI Laser Aids Cutting Edge Research

Sixty years ago, the first laser was successfully fired on May 16, 1960 by Dr. Theodore Maiman. Seven weeks later, Dr. Maiman and his employer, Hughes Aircraft Company, presented laser to the world at a press conference in Manhattan. Dr. Maiman was granted a patent for his invention, received many awards and honors for his work. Dr. Maiman’s experiences in developing the first laser and subsequent related events are described in his memoire, The Laser Odyssey.


Sixty years on, laser has become one of the most widely used innovations of the 20th century. It is part of our everyday life, widely used in manufacturing, medical diagnosis and treatment, beauty industry, telecommunications, military, etc.


Changchun New Industries Optoelectronics Tech. Co., Ltd. (CNI) is the largest all solid state laser manufacturer in China. Founded in 1996, this relative new comer to the laser industry largely owes its success to its impeccable pedigree – it is founded by the Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics. The institute, a member of Chinese Academy of Sciences, is China’s leading research institute in laser technology and the birthplace of China’s first ruby laser.


CNI products are widely used in many sectors, but the company is most proud of the fact that their products have aided thousands of scientists with their research. To date, more than 10,000 academic papers have been published on research projects which have used CNI lasers.


CNI’s laser products range from UV 213 nm to Mid 4800 nm with more than 120 wavelengths, including high stability laser, ultra-low noise laser, single longitudinal mode laser, wavelength tunable laser, multi-line laser, pico-second laser, high power and high energy laser etc.


It offers state of the art laser systems, optical spectrum analyzer, teaching and laboratory equipment, optical measuring equipment, laser processing equipment, machine vision and the photoelectric detection, etc. CNI also design and manufacture precision machinery, optical components and optical coating products.
