Gooch & Housego Leads Project

Photonics Spectra
Apr 2012
Gooch & Housego of Somerset, UK, will lead a €4.5 million (about $5.9 million) collaborative European Union-funded FP7 project titled “Integrated disruptive components for 2 µm fiber lasers” (ISLA) launched in October 2011 at Trinity College in Dublin. The 2-µm fiber laser technology has the potential to open new applications, such as industrial processing, free-space communications and medical procedures, because of its increased core size and higher nonlinear thresholds. It offers a tenfold increase in “raw power” compared with current 1-µm-based technology. Other partners include Rofin Sinar Laser GmbH, Oclaro, Time-Bandwidth Products, the University of Southampton, Trinity College and Vivid Components.
