The Er:YAG laser systems developed by Pantec are pumped between 0.1 and 10ms pulse duration and 1-20% duty cycle, making them attractive for medical applications such as transdermal delivery of drugs from large peptides up to whole antibodies, since molecules of this mass can’t penetrate passively into the dermis.


To deliver the highest level of reliability, the Oclaro high power laser diodes feature the Oclaro E2 mirror passivation process, which protects the front facet of the bar against Catastrophic Optical Damage. In addition, the Telecom grade AuSn (gold tin) hard solder makes the product suitable for demanding industrial and defense applications in CW and hard-pulse operation mode.


About the P.L.E.A.S.E. ® Platform


P.L.E.A.S.E.® is a novel transdermal delivery method for high molecular weight drugs. It creates controlled aqueous micropores through the stratum corneum into the epidermis. Due to the special features of the device the micropores do not reach the dermis, where nerves and blood vessels reside. The first device using this new platform is the P.L.E.A.S.E.® Professional, a stationary medical laser device targeted mainly for the dermatologic and aesthetic markets. An intelligent graphical user interface, together with the CE mark and the integrated class 1 laser, guarantees simple and safe use by the medical personnel or the patient, who can use the device without supervision. At a later time, this device will then be complemented by the P.L.E.A.S.E.® Private, a battery-powered handheld medical laser device targeted mainly for drug delivery.

becoming a new leader in the U.S. lighting market as the industry shifts into the digital age. The company announced today it is making its first LED lamps available in the U.S. as the company couples its technological prowess in LED with its deep marketing knowledge in consumer electronics to launch LED lighting solutions into the mainstream professional and consumer market.


Samsung LED Co., Ltd. (www.samsungLED.com) was established globally in April 2009, channeling the company’s proven expertise in the electronics and electro-mechanics fields into the production of cutting-edge LED lighting. As a leader in LED technology from chips to TV displays, Samsung already possesses some of the largest LED production facilities in the world, helping ensure quality and reliability across the entire line of products. An American center of operations has been established in Atlanta, Ga., to support the company’s expansion into the U.S. market.


“The lighting industry has finally caught up with the digital revolution, with microchip technology powering lamps enabling longer lifetimes, more environmentally-friendly designs and less energy consumption,” says Philip Warner, Vice President of Samsung LED America. “The Samsung brand is practically synonymous with consumer electronics. As more and more people recognize the future of home and commercial lighting lies in this amazing digital technology, we are confident Samsung will take a leading position in the market.”


Samsung’s initial line-up ranges from omni- directional incandescent replacements to fluorescent and PAR replacement lamps for homes and businesses. Samsung’s vertically integrated supply chain allows the company to produce all aspects of LED lights, including chips, PKGs, modules, light engines and lamps. The company is also a technology leader in areas of thermal management, optics, power supplies and lighting controls.


Philip Warner, Vice President added that Samsung will put its full research and design might into developing the next generation of LED lamps. “We will not dilute our offerings with high-efficiency incandescent or even CFLs, as these are yesterday’s technologies. Our focus is 100-percent on LED,” he said.
