High-Power Diode Lasers Lab

Our R&D work targets power, efficiency, beam quality, narrow spectral linewidth and reliability of high power diode lasers. By analyzing limiting effects in depth, we are able to continuously improve the values of these parameters. In addition, we are investigating novel device concepts such as a technology for stabilizing monolithic wavelengths.

For our partners and customers in research and industry, our lab develops customized diode lasers, which are especially used for pumping solid-state lasers in material processing and medicine. In addition, there are laser systems of the kW class, which we build as diode laser stacks and which can be used both as pump lasers and directly.
