Minimal enumeration of possibleTenderers are requested to indicate which lasers they can offer (see Annex 1) - (Frequency doubled) Nd Yag laser;- Argon laser;- Krypton laser;- Dye laser;CO2 laser;- Diode laser;- Holmium laser;- Excimer laser;- Femtosecond laser;- Laser scanning technology.
But the DTD does have an impressive mastering facility, where it has now produced 170 different holograms since 1991, with three tables and an argon and a krypton laser (each at 1W output) and a NdYag frequency-doubled 300mW laser.
It has also installed design, mastering and embossing facilities in-house, with one mastering table using a 4W argon laser to master viewable holograms, and another using a 4W krypton laser to master diffraction gratings and holographic optical elements, primarily for research projects.
