Small Hole Applications

The small hole, orifice or aperture is the key element of any device or instrument designed to control or measure the flow rate of a gas or liquid. In the recent past, the gasoline piston engine went through a transition that improved performance and reliability. Precision made small holes brought to life the fuel-injection process,…

Small Hole Features

Every physical object is three-dimensional. A hole is a void in a three-dimensional object and may be of any size or shape. A perfect round hole is a cylindrical surface that extends between and is normal to the front and back surface of a substrate sheet. Further, a round hole generates a circular void in…

Small Hole Technologies

Hole Definition In effect, a round hole is a cylindrical surface that extends between the front and back surfaces of a substrate sheet. Recent advances in laser hole drilling techniques have provided the means to produce precision holes in the one micron diameter region that are of a higher quality than that produced by the…

Meet Thomas Young

THOMAS YOUNG Thomas Young was an English polymath (a person with encyclopedic or varied knowledge or learning) who contributed to the scientific understanding of vision, light, solid mechanics, energy, physiology and Egyptology.. So great was his knowledge that he was called “Phenomena Young” by his fellow students at Cambridge. Young was born in 1773, the…

Lenox Laser Helps Uncover Archimedes Palimpsest.

A spatial filter is an optical device which uses the principles of Fourier Optics to alter the structure of a beam of coherent light. Spatial filtering is commonly used to remove aberrations in the beam due to imperfect, dirty or damaged optics, or due to variations in the laser gain medium itself. This can be…

Nasa Stereo Mission

NASA’s recent STEREO (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory) project is a mission to capture the sun in three dimensions. The two-year long project involves having two near-identical telescopes (one ahead of earths’ orbit and one behind) to record the behavior of the sun, studying phenomena like coronal mass ejections. Lenox Laser fabricated custom parts for the…

Lenox Laser Helps Uncover Archimedes Palimpsest.

Intensive efforts are underway to uncover centuries-old hidden writings of Greek mathematician Archimedes. Researches at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) are utilizing advanced X-ray technology to uncover writings of Archimedes once completely unknown. Discovered in 1906 by then-Professor J.L. Heiberg of the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, the hidden text appeared within historical monastic prayer…
