Photonics Spectra
Jun 2012
In France, ultrafast laser specialist Amplitude Systèmes of Bordeaux and Laboratoire Charles Fabry have established a joint research laboratory that will support 10 scientists working on high-performance lasers. Called DEFI, the new lab is based at the Institut d’Optique in Palaiseau and will focus on diode-pumped ultrafast lasers. The team will work on emerging concepts and prototype laser development for the next generation of ultrafast sources. Amplitude has worked on ytterbium ultrafast lasers with Laboratoire Charles Fabry since 2006, a collaboration that has demonstrated results including shortest duration from oscillators and regenerative amplifiers and sub-100-fs high-energy fiber lasers.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
