These efficient laser sources are finding use in a wide range of industrial, commercial and R&D applications. InnoLas picolo AOT lasers provide pulses of one order of magnitude (or more) shorter than from competitive technology. Shorter, more intense pulses can provide the user many advantages. For example, in precision processing and marking, the short interaction time reduces workpiece heating effects and improves quality. In applications like ranging, and in ‘ excite and probe’ studies, short pulses increase temporal resolution. In non-linear harmonic and parametric processes, the high intensity of the short pulses leads to high conversion efficiency.
