Light is what nestles deeply into the molecules that make up matter, and makes it possible for matter to be what it is. Although its roots extend deeply into the origins of the world we live in, there’s still much that we don’t know about light. The knowledge that we gain in our quest for understanding will undoubtedly reveal, little by little, the “landscape” of our world in the most quintessential meaning of the word. In our pursuit of light, we at Hamamatsu Photonics are building a foothold for exploring what is still unknown to mankind, and for creating new industries for the future.
In our Industrial Development Laboratory, built in 2008, we carry out research in such areas as power generation and material modification using light energy.
Hamamatsu’s joint research successfully forms a multi-layered polycrystalline ceramic surface through laser shock compression technology.
Hamamatsu, Japan July 17, 2015 The Graduate School for the Creation of New Photonics Industries, an academic institution affiliated with Hamamatsu Photonics K.K., has announced the discovery of a new technique to reform the surface of ceramic materials with laser-shock compression technology, a result which may contribute to the development of new materials. By irradiating the surface of zirconia (yttria-stabilized zirconia) with a high-intensity short-pulse laser, a multi-layered polycrystalline structure was formed on the material with a penetration depth of 130 microns.
