Research Institution
Compact, high average power, laser systems based on Yb-doped crystalline materials will be developed for military and industrial applications. Novel approaches that combine the use of compact diffractive/dispersive optics, cryogenic cooling, and direct diode pumping, will be utilized. This research will be carried out by a group of world experts that have already developed the highest average power, commercially available, ultrafast laser system that is now being sold and installed all over the world. Thus, the team has an excellent track record for their ability to bring cutting-edge, high-power, laser technology to the market-place.
