Generating high powered light outside the more common visible and NIR optical regions, extending into the Blue and Mid-IR range has only been possible in commercial systems in the last few years.
High-Power, High-Brightness Blue Industrial Lasers Provide higher quality parts than from standard IR Lasers and accelerates Welding, 3D-Printing, and other Material Processing Operations. The fundamental properties of blue light means the absorption in materials such as Copper, Gold and Aluminium can be up to 66x higher than standard Infrared light, whilst the higher brightness delivers energy to the required target area. If you are working in energy storage; aerospace; e-mobility or electronics packaging then speak to us about this award winning technology.
At longer wavelengths 3-13 microns the power of room temperature Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) is getting higher and higher. With optical powers up to 2W (export restrictions may limit power), continuous wave or pulsed, these lasers are being used for environmental monitoring, stand-off detection, IR countermeasures and much more.
