The design of a laser resonator is an essential part of a laser design and often

The design of a laser resonator is an essential part of a laser design and often a difficult task—learn how to determine required resonator mode properties and find suitable designs. Many aspects of a laser’s performance depend substantially on the design of its laser resonator: the power-conversion efficiency, the beam quality, and the alignment sensitivity, for example. Therefore, it is essential—although often not easy—to develop optimized laser resonator designs. This article is intended to give an overview on the crucial aspects of laser resonator design. Bulk laser resonators are considered here, where the resonator modes are determined by a balance of focusing effects (for example, from curved laser mirrors) and the diffraction of light in free-space regions. Figure 1 shows two examples: a linear and a ring resonator. Fiber lasers and other waveguide lasers, in which the mode properties are determined by waveguide effects, are outside the scope of this article. The most-essential properties of a laser resonator can be understood as properties of its resonator modes, which need to have appropriate mode radii in the laser gain medium (in this example, a laser crystal). It i...

Some images are additional or alternate. “We started shooting today,” Supernatural director of photography Serge Ladouceur, CSC told AC on Jan. 7, as the cast and crew resumed production the show’s 15th and final season after a holiday hiatus. “It feels strange to think we’re into our last run.” And what a run it’s been. Since the CW series made its debut in 2005, the labyrinthine exploits of intrepid “hunters” Sam and Dean Winchester (played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) have seen them repeatedly crisscross the country, as well as journey to both heaven and hell, along with stints in purgatory and alternate dimensions. Throughout, the boys have tangled with and dispatched all manner of inhuman antagonists — a “family business” trade they learned in childhood from their stern...

IntroductionChemical CompositionPhysical PropertiesMechanical PropertiesMachiningWeldingHeat TreatmentApplications

IntroductionChemical CompositionPhysical PropertiesMechanical PropertiesMachiningWeldingHeat TreatmentApplications ASTM A36 is the most commonly used mild and hot-rolled steel. It has excellent welding properties and is suitable for grinding, punching, tapping, drilling and machining processes. Yield strength of ASTM A36 is less than that of cold roll C1018, thus enabling ASTM A36 to bend more readily than C1018. Normally, larger diameters in ASTM A36 are not produced since C1018 hot roll rounds are used. The machinability rate of ASTM A36 is estimated to be 72%, and the average surface cutting feed of ASTM A36 is 120 ft/min. Machining of ASTM A36 steel is not as easy as that of AISI 1018 steel. ASTM A36 steel is easy to weld using any type of welding methods, and the welds and joints so formed are of excellent quality. Hi Li Rongbao, Thank you for your question. The composition values given are typical for the addition elements found in this particular grade of steel. The percentages of the addition elements mentioned are what define this steel as the grade that it is.For example, carbon steel is defined as having up to 1.65wt% manganese, and so if there is a higher percentage ...

Al Roker shows off his backyard ‘Today Show’ broadcast setup with dual iPhones + iPad Pro

We’ve already seen how many TV show hosts are embracing iPhones for at home production. Now, Al Roker has taken to Instagram to showcase his iPhone + iPad setup for his at-home broadcast for NBC’s The Today Show. In a post on Instagram yesterday, Roker showcased his at-home backyard broadcasting setup. In the image, you can see an iPhone 11 Pro that Roker says is being used to transmit his video feed to the Today studios using LiveU. The other iPhone, which appears to be an older model, is being used for the return feed. For audio, Roker says he’s using a Sennheiser microphone paired with an iRig interface, which adapts the microphone for use with an iPhone, iPad, Mac, or Android device. For lighting, Roker is using what looks to be a pretty standard LED light panel. Roker is also using an iPad Pro — paired with a Smart Keyboard Folio — for his teleprompter. While there are a variety of teleprompter apps for iPad, Roker appears to be using one that ties in with his Today Show co-hosts, perhaps through the LiveU service. And last but not least, it wouldn’t be an at-home broadcast without AirPods, and Roker can be seen wearing a single AirPod during his at Today Show spots. So ho...

I don’t know about you, but I don’t typically write a review for (or even rate)

I don’t know about you, but I don’t typically write a review for (or even rate) something unless I had a really terrific or a truly terrible experience, which is precisely why combing through a slew of reviews can be so helpful. Sure, a product can be touted as a best seller or a dermatologist can sing the praises of a certain face mask, but there’s something much more forward and relatable about a first-person review. It’s the closest thing to a try-before-you-buy situation, and it can be exceedingly helpful if you find yourself on the fence pre-purchase (especially if you’re pondering a big skincare splurge). Of course, there have been, and likely always will be, issues of seeded or fake reviews (we’re not going to act like that’s not a thing), but if you head to trustworthy retailers, such as Dermstore, which houses all the most sought-after brands and products with authentic ratings and reviews in tow, you’ll quickly gain a helpful glimpse into the most effective formulas for what you’re looking for. To streamline the process for you, we researched and selected our favorite top-rated skincare products on Dermstore’s...
