According to TRUMPF's Frank Geyer, product manager, Laser Systems, this disk laser
can productively handle many 3D cutting applications.
Boeing Company is working on Thin Disk Laser
She added that if the initial colour of the pump light is tunable, for example that provided by a semiconductor disk laser
, we can achieve tuning of the Raman laser colour.
The disk laser
is a brilliant combination of a solid-state laser and a semiconductor laser.
By virtue of its design, they predict that, "when it comes to precision welding, the future will most likely be dominated by the thin disk laser
Jenoptiks solutions include for example laser beam sources with a reliable beam quality such as Jenoptiks green thin disk laser
Today, a 4-kW disk laser
is about $250,000, and prices keep coming down.
Tenders invited for Optical components for disk laser
2], disk, fiber, diode, rod-and while David Havrilla, manager of Products and Applications there believes that there are appropriate tools for appropriate tasks, when it comes to high-power applications typical of both OEM and supplier welding operations (think in the context of 4-to 6-kW requirements; typical cutting tasks are performed at lower power, say 1 kW), the disk laser
oftentimes provides the sorts of advantages that cannot be readily overcome by the other types of lasers in their portfolio.
An important highlight in my ERC StG Mega-XUV project was the first demonstration of a stabilized optical frequency comb from a SESAM-modelocked femtosecond thin disk laser
