Their Laser Pulse Stretcher
is a passive optical device that transforms a short, intense laser pulse into a long, less-intense pulse while maintaining input laser energy.
The new fibre optic sensors offer a fast output response with a pulse stretcher
for better integration with the control system in high-speed assembly/production applications.
At the time it was selected, SURA's proposal called for a traditional copper tube accelerator with an attached "pulse stretcher
' ring, which was to create the continuous beam.
