Single Crystal Fiber Lasers are in the news: Taranis covered by Laser Focus World

Fibercryst’s ultra-fast lasers and amplifiers utilise their revolutionary Taranis Single Crystal Fibre (SCF) modules to enable higher energy per pulse, higher average power, and easy to use flexibility between energy and repetition rate, and better beam qualities from small footprint devices.

In this month’s Laser Focus World magazine, an in-depth article about Fibercryst’s innovative Single Crystal Fiber amplification technology has been published. You can read Single crystal fibers amplify power in ultrashort-pulse lasers here.

Industrial Laser

OutputEndTaranis technology is the heart of the Fibercyst FEMTO, a powerful industrial femtosecond pulse width laser for high quality micromachining, offering output powers up to 25 W for high throughput.

Typical applications include: cutting and drilling of hard materials, cold machining polymers or composites, and micromachining / structuring of surfaces, especially glass, ceramics and sapphire. A key feature of this laser is the ability to easily and quickly change the repetition rate to favour the average power or the energy per pulse.

Seed Amplifier

The Taranis Amplifier System is a stand-alone add-on unit that allows a developer to increase the power and energy output of an existing laser installation.

The amplifier design also incorporates Fibercryst’s unique Taranis technology – a single crystal fibre amplifier ideal for short pulse amplification that delivers a high intensity, linearly polarised laser beam with superb quality and adjustable repetition rate.

The amplifier accepts a wide range of fibre-coupled or free propagation mode seed lasers, boosting them to a higher average power, higher peak power (up to 30 MW) and higher pulse energy. Output is to free space.

Further details about these and other Fibercryst products can be obtained by contacting us.

Light pinpoints stress and strain – A Brillouin’t idea from OZ Optics

Remote Pipeline, Perimeter, and Structural Monitoring…

dsts-applicationsForesight™, from OZ Optics, is a sophisticated Distributed Strain and Temperature Sensor (DSTS) based on Brillouin scattering in an optical fibre. It can measure subtle changes in both temperature and strain along the length of the fibre over time, or the rapid location detection of a major disturbance within a second.

By wrapping or embedding a fibre inside a structure, such as an oil pipeline or dam, detection of the structure being strained or heated/cooled is possible, allowing for pre-emptive maintenance. Such monitoring capability is invaluable in critical structures where cracks and failure could involve loss of life or other unprecedented costs.

Foresight™ can also detect and report larger signals within one second with only a slight loss of accuracy. This sort of response speed is ideal for security applications or strains caused by earthquakes where an immediate measurement and reaction may be required.

For more details about this system, please contact us.


More laser safety filters from NoIR LaserShields

female-31NoIR LaserShields continues to expand their range of CE-approved filters for laser safety. Recent additions include the CT2 for use in the visible, and CTR, HYG and YGH filters for the infrared region of the spectrum.

NoIR have been manufacturing high-quality internationally-certified safety eyewear for the protection of laser users in a broad range of fields and applications for many years now, offering protection from:

  • UV, visible, and IR lasers and other ultra-bright light sources
  • Multiple waveband devices
  • Therapeutic and cosmetic treatments (Patients and clinicians)
  • Laser pens (For pilots and the emergency services)

Elliot Scientific’s expert advice will guide you to the best in cost-effective laser safety. Academics, beauticians, clinicians et al, we can protect your eyes from laser mishaps.

Contact us with details of your laser or ultra-bright light source application and we will be happy to help you choose the correct filters for spectacle frames or goggles.
