Mobius Photonics Receives Patent
Mobius Photonics Inc. has been granted US Patent No. 8,009,705 for an optical fiber-based master oscillator power amplifier system that avoids stimulated Brillouin scattering, a spontaneous phenomenon of light scattering that occurs in optical fibers, reducing a fiber laser system’s optical power. To overcome this, Mobius developed a method that enables systems to produce high-peak-power square pulses that are efficiently converted to desired wavelengths. The invention is suitable for applications such as materials processing that demand robust fiber-based systems that can produce high-quality, high-peak-power green or ultraviolet pulses.
