Paper Abstract

Fiber Lasers are emerging as a technically superior solution that is disruptive to conventional laser sources. Estimates place the 2005 market for Fiber Lasers at approximately $160Million, with growth potential of 100%/year for the next 3-4 years. Many of the applications envisage deployment where end-users have easy access to the benefits of the Fiber Laser source, without needing to understand the detailed physics and engineering behind the beam delivery. For these applications a comprehensive control platform with simple functional user interfaces is a significant competitive advantage. Depending on the nature of the particular application, effective controls can range from basic pump source management, to more detailed monitoring of multiple aspects of the lasing system to ensure the desired operating regime, and may even include feedback from external sensors to optimize delivery conditions.
