Dausinger and Giesen has received an order from the Institute of Physics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic to deliver an ultrafast laser system, generating 750mJ pulse energy at a repetition rate of at least 1kHz and a pulse duration of 3ps, as part of the large]scale HiLASE project.
Such unprecedented specifications so far can be reached with disk laser technology, only, and require a sophisticated set]up consisting of seed laser, regenerative amplifier, linear amplifier, and pulse compressor.
Dausinger and Giesen, a Stuttgart-based SME, is a provider of thin disk lasers, an invention for which Adolf Giesen, a founder of the company, is well]known worldwide. D+G is fostering the expansion of disk laser technology by supplying the key components to laser makers and research institutes worldwide and supporting them with cutting edge development.
Whereas large-scale disk laser manufacturers have an undisputed advantage in series production technology, Dausinger and Giesen excels in flexibility to match the customer’s special and most advanced needs. This is mainly due to a well-rehearsed team of university graduates.
D+G offers disks (crystals contacted to heat sinks) with up to 25mm diameter, disk modules for pump powers ranging from 50W to 40kW, a femtosecond and picosecond laser with variable pulse duration and a trepanning optic for drilling with highest precision.
