Zecotek’s Advanced Dye Laser Selected by Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology, Korea
Vancouver, BC, November 9, 2007 - Zecotek Medical Systems, Inc. (TSX-V: ZMS; Frankfurt: W1I.F) today announced the sale of a CW single-frequency ring Dye laser system to Korea’s prestigious Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) for high-precision laser spectroscopy in its Advanced Photonics Research Institute. GIST was established in 1993 by the Republic of Korea to meet the nation’s needs for advanced research and to take a leading role in performing research and development with industry sectors.
“We are very pleased that Korea’s prestigious Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology has selected our CW Dye laser for their advanced spectroscopy program, following a highly competitive international selection process,” said Dr. A.F. Zerrouk, Chairman, President, and CEO of Zecotek. “This is an excellent endorsement of both the technical superiority and cost effectiveness of our new lines of laser products.”
Zecotek’s frequency-stabilized CW single-frequency ring Dye laser, model DYE-SF-077, is a further development of model DYE-SF-07 which includes a new system of frequency stabilization based on a thermo-stabilized interferometer and a fast electronic driver. This model provides a line width of less than 100 kHz, setting a new standard for commercial dye lasers, where previously the narrowest available line-width was 500 kHz - 1 MHz.
