For example, we may use--or even combine with the picosecond laser--a fractional erbium laser to reach deeper into the dermis for severe acne scarring or for deep wrinkles.
2] With picosecond duration optical pulses and carrier lifetimes of less than 1 ps, it is now routinely possible to generate electrical pulses of the same order.
Each subject underwent six treatments with a 755-nanometer alexandrite picosecond laser with a diffractive lens array; each treatment occurred every 4-8 weeks.
The deliverable is to ensure the supply of two mirrors for picosecond and compressors for the frequency conversion from 1030 nm to 515 nm (Second Harmonic Generation - SHG).

In addition, since the extreme ultraviolet laser produces light pulses with very short duration (4 picoseconds, or trillionths of a second), the researchers believe it may be possible to create picosecond-scale snapshots of important processes in other applications.

The new PXI Express hardware specification adds PCI Express signaling and differential synchronization features to PXI, providing up to a 6 GByte/s controller-to-backplane bandwidth and instrument synchronization to the picosecond level.
Operating at 700 MHz with an output jitter of less than one picosecond (ps) rms, the synchronous FemtoClocks eliminate input clock jitter and offer a low-cost, integrated alternative to more expensive discretes and/or SAW-based clock devices.
Recently, a team of IBM researchers generated electrical pulses so short that each one lasts only half a picosecond.
