System to generate ultra-short high-power pulses in lasers
A Spanish research institution has developed a method that allows to generate pulsed signals of high power and energy through control over the spatial distribution of the intensity, nonlinear effects and the dispersive characteristics inside a laser. This method offers interesting possibilities for the processing of laser materials, the generation of high bandwidth light sources, the development of sensors or optical metrology, as possible field of application.

Ultra-fast high-power sources of radiation Today’s fiber lasers stand out for their stability, simplicity and little need for maintenance, but they are limited in terms of the energy and power they can get, requiring external stages of amplification that make the system more expensive and complicated. The most direct way to increase the energy of an anchored pulse to modes would be to increase the length of the cavity, but in practice this distorts or widens the signal, so never being considered a viable alternative. The system of the invention uses solitary wave pulses that propagate without deformation to overcome this barrier. It consists of: a signal regulator, an attenuator that allows to adjust the signal strength and a Raman effect amplification device that controls the spatial distribution of the signal, making it possible to transmit long distance without loss.
Advantages and innovations
Then main advantages are: - High-power, simple, compact and low-cost ultra-short pulse lasers. - Exceed the power and energy limits of current systems. - Allows the generation of pulses with the desired power and energy characteristics. -Allows the generation of pulses with different repeat frequencies, as required by the application. - Possible applications: material processing, atmospheric gas sensor, telecommunications or medical tomography…

How it works
- Tell us about yourself
- We’ll discuss with you
- We put the right partners in touch
EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.
Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.
These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.
Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
First we need to check you’re human.
