Miyachi Unitek of Monrovia, Calif., has opened the Midwest Laser Applications Laboratory in Wixom, Mich., where the company will work with customers to conduct sample evaluations and create applications reports using its range of Nd:YAG and fiber laser welders and markers. Sharing a building with AET Integration Inc. will give Miyachi access to AET’s cross sectioning and inspection laboratories and will enable more detailed inspections.
- fiber laser
- A laser in which the lasing medium is an optical fiber doped with low levels of rare-earth halides to make it capable of amplifying light. Output is tunable over a broad range and can be broadband. Laser diodes can be used for pumping because of the fiber laser's low threshold power, eliminating the need for cooling.
