Tittle:
Innovative high energy, short pulsed laser sources based on thin disc technology
Summary:
A German SME offers thin disc laser technology ranging from components to complete laser sources.
The SME is open for collaborations where laser sources are needed with specifications not fitting to market available systems. Especially, if higher pulse energy or higher average power is necessary. The company is looking for commercial agreements with technical assistance as well as for technical or research agreements.
Description:
The German SME is located in the South of Germany and develops, designs and produces leading edge thin disk lasers for science and industry. They offer components of thin disc laser technology as well as complete laser sources. The company assists customers with components and know how to develop their own laser systems or they develop and deliver outstanding lasers for their international customers. Furthermore, they assist customers to develop laser processes fitting to their individual applications.

The new technology addresses the following problem:
The market for high power lasers is increasing rapidly. Especially the applications for lasers with ultrashort pulses in the time regime of femtoseconds and picoseconds are growing. These lasers are still very expensive but the complex design doesn´t allow reducing the costs significantly. Hence, one solution to enhance the effectivity of such processes can be an increase of the average power to reduce the cost per Watt. In science there is an increasing demand for special designed high energy lasers for new measurement experiments or even new medical applications.

Main features and innovative aspects of the technology
The thin disc technology allows an optimised thermal management compared to classic rod design, which results in higher average power. Compared to fibre lasers the mode diameter is much larger, so high peak intensities can be handled better. This enables outstanding parameters in the near infrared. By conversion technologies the regime can be enlarged to shorter or even larger wavelength.

Potential application/market
Material processing, scientific measurements, medical applications

Desired co-operation type
Commercial agreement with technical assistance: The company offers high energy laser systems and processing know how to interested partners in industry and research institutes. Within close discussion the company is able to react to customer specific topics.

Technical and research agreement: The company is open to enlarge its product portfolio. Therefore, the company is interested in collaboration models regarding the topics higher harmonics generation (HHG) and optical parametric chirped pulse amplification (OPCPA).
Advantages and Innovations:
The thin disc technology enables high pulse energy at short pulses and high repetition rates

For the field of material processing the company has already built up laser systems with up to 120 W @ 1030 nm @ 600 µJ @ 180 fs.
For scientific applications the company has already built up systems with 180 W @ 1030 nm @ 180 mJ @ 3 ps.
Both lines are far beyond most competitors and there is a large potential to convert theses high energies into other wavelength.
Stage of Development:
Under development/lab tested
IPs:
Patents granted
CommeR Statunts Regarding IPR Status:
Patents granted as well as applied for in Germany and the European Union

Partner sought

Type and Role of Partner Sought:
Type of partner sought:
The company is open for partners from different fields: Laser processing, science and partners for HHG and OPCPA

Tasks to be performed by the partner sought:
Partners of laser processing should have specific applications in mind, the company wants to assist with processing know how and its laser technology.
Partners of science should have specific experiments in mind, where stable and high energy lasers can help to achieve better measurement results.
Partners of HHG and OPCPA should have existing experience in working with high energy and ultrashort laser pulses.

Size and Type of partner sought:
For the scientific experiments mainly research institutes are possible.
For laser processing and the development activities about frequency conversion industrial partners are necessary. Due to the size as SME the partner also could be SME, but the company has already established business activities with large companies, so this would also be possible.
