Technology Summary

Over the past ten years the NLC has developed
unique skills in mid-infrared laser sources as well as novel resonator concepts
due to several large and focussed research and development programmes,
combination of skills and expertise in diode pumped solid state (DPSS) lasers,
laser beam propagation and resonator development. This has resulted in the
development of several unique laser systems and resonator architectures that
have delivered world records in several parameter categories in the MidIR
wavelength region. The mid-infrared spectral region of 2-5μm contains strong
characteristic vibrational transitions of many important molecules as well as
two atmospheric transmission windows of, which makes it crucial for
applications in spectroscopy, materials processing, chemical and bio-molecular sensing, security and industry.

Applications:

For applications in spectroscopy, materials processing, chemical and
bio-molecular sensing, security and general industry

Benefits/advantages:

The NLC has developed a series of compact and robust MidIR lasers sources that combine the following properties:

  • High Brightness
  • High Energy
  • Efficiency

Good beam quality

Intellectual Property:

The NLC has filed several patents related to this technology and has
built an extensive degree of know-how on how to customize these lasers for client’s needs and applications.
