Focus Area:

Fiber Laser

Social Benefits:

Developed packaged fiber lasers can be used for material processing applications such as metal cutting, marking and surgical applications. The 2 micron 30 W Thulium laser can be used for precise incision of soft tissues which is applicable in the surgical sector of medicine.It is far more efficient than their crystal based Holmium laser counterpart due to smaller size, high wall plug efficiency and rugged nature.
