Route des Lasers

France’s photonics and high frequency electronics competitiveness cluster, the Route des Lasers (RDL), will bring 12 of its members to the show.

Joining RDL at the French pavilion at Photonics West will be new members Kylia, specialists in ultra-precise assembly of optical elements on glass breadboards using 6D positioning; and FemtoEasy, a company working with ultra high-energy laser systems. Also at the pavilion will be Azur Light Systems, Alphanov, ISP System, Irisome Solutions, Spark Lasers and Elements Metrology.

ISP Systems will display an MD-AME deformable mirror for performing laser beam wavefront shaping. It is adapted for intense lasers, terahertz and infrared applications. ISP Systems’ deformable mirror overcomes the shortcomings of piezoelectric deformable mirrors to offer more accurate injection of strength on the thin reflective surface. Strength is generated by an electric actuator driven by stepper motors.

Irisome Solutions, a developer of tunable picosecond fibre lasers at high repetition rate, will display a new compact fibre laser from the SID series, aimed at offering a picosecond solution for bioimaging applications. This system allows pulses to be set at any repetition rate from 80MHz to 1.2GHz, offering users the flexibility and benefit of changing repetition rates.

Irisome Solutions will also be exhibiting at BIOS, as will Amplitude Systèmes, Imagine Optic and FemtoEasy.
