Record high-power picosecond laser pulses for cold ablation
A thin-disk multipass amplifier produces 1.4kW (IR) and 820W (green) average output power pulses for fast, clean cutting of carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic.
Nonlinear conversion of 2μm nanosecond pulses from a high-energy holmium laser enables future IR weapon countermeasures.
