Rod-type fiber laser opens new applications

February 2006
Industrial Laser Solutions;Feb2006, Vol. 21 Issue 2, p7
The article reports on the application of the Q-switched rod-type fiber laser to solve the limits of traditional solid-state lasers and fiber lasers by Femlight and university scientists. With the use of a new generation of photonic fibers in a special resonator configuration, the scientists were able to demonstrate a 280kW peak power Q-switched laser. The excellent quality of the laser made the laser a perfect candidate for multiple industrial applications.
