Fiber laser producer Mobius Photonics Inc.
of Mountain View, Calif., has received US Patent No. 8,160,113 for its pulse burst laser system. The optical system can produce user-specific bursts of laser pulses tailored in pulse heights, widths and spacings. It does not require an acousto-optic modulator or internal Q-switch. It is suitable for applications that require a simple laser system that produces consistent, high-quality pulse bursts that can be customized for processes including laser direct imaging and solar panel processing. With the technology, the company is able to offer laser systems with flexibility for a broad range of applications.
