Ytterbium Fiber Amplifiers Set the Mark for Speed and Power

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments

Advances in this power-scalable technology are having an impact on industrial applications and scientific research.

MICHAEL LAHA, MARCO ARRIGONI AND JOSEPH HENRICH, COHERENT INC.

Ytterbium fiber laser amplifiers encompass one of the most dynamic areas in femtosecond lasers. Recent advances in power and speed are opening doors in scientific research and materials processing, impacting diverse fields spanning multiphoton imaging in neuroscience research to cutting OLEDs on glass substrates. Ytterbium-doped optical materials have several advantages as a gain medium for ultrafast lasers, making them complementary to titanium:sapphire (Ti:sapphire) in scientific applications and Nd:YAG in industrial uses. Ytterbium has a wide gain bandwidth enabling mode-locked...Read full article
