1kW Femtosecond Laser Operational

April 17, 2019 /

The IFSW has achieved an important milestone, in achieving an average output power of 1kW with ultrashort pulses of a duration of ~500fs on their thin-disk multi-pass amplifier. A 100W Tangor laser, provided by partner Amplitude Systèmes, served as the seed laser. The integration of the laser system to the material processing machine developed by the partner LASEA, is presently ongoing. The machine will be used to demonstrate 3D ablation of Si and ablation of diamond at kW average laser power in collaboration with the partners Bosch and E6, respectively
