Pump modules for high-energy-class solid-state laser systems consist of diode laser stacks, whose individual beams are shaped and combined to a beam with high energy density by means of simple optical components. Such modules enable efficient pumping of short-pulse solid-state laser systems (pulse duration 10-6 bis 10-9 s) with pulse energy in the Joule range. The overall power scales with the number of stacks and emitters to power in the kW region.
- Pumping of high-energy class solid-state laser systems (z. B. Yb:YAG, Nd:YAG) with high pulse repetition rates. Such systems are increasingly demanded in research (e.g. X-ray lasers, attosecond spectroscopy, particle accelarators, material processing)
- Direct material processing in industry
- The FBH is a member institute of the EuPRAXIA-Consortium
