Last change:IAPLE / 2017-08-08

 

Huge parameter space with demand for explorative research

 

1. High Power (productivity) 1-10 kW

2. High Energy 10 mJ – J,
- spread energy in optical axis (filament processing)

3. New frequency domains (e.g. GHz), burst

4. New Wavelengths
- mid IR/ OPOs, OPAs, OPCPA, HHG (green to coherent EUV)
- Dual- multi-wavelengths UFL
- THz - generation

5. System components for Spatial/ temporal modulation @ > kW level
- scalability > 200W SLM
- speed of beam positioning
- Beam switches/ isolators
- Image amplification

6. High Power Applications
a) Surface structuring (polymer, metal, glass, …)

b) “Digital Milling”
