Multi-segment all-fiber laser device


The compactness, ruggedness, high beam quality, and efficiency of fiber lasers make them attractive devices for applications in signal processing, optical communications and sensing as well as in medicine and industry. <br><br> <strong>Technology</strong><br> This multi-segment all-fiber laser includes active fiber laser segments, a first grating and a second grating as well as a coupling fiber segment arranged between the first and the second grating. The coupling fiber segment enables the coupling of gain and phase between the two gratings with the gain and/or phase being controllable. Preferably, the first and the second grating are distributed feed-back (DFB) grating structures. This all-fiber laser emits well-defined optical pulses and/or pulse trains of well-defined but adjustable wavelength.<br><br> <strong>Benefits</strong><br>

<ul> <li>Tunable pulse repetition rates </li> <li>First mode: stable train of optical pulses</li> <li>Second mode: two pulse trains with stable phase relations</li> <li>Tunable frequency difference between the two pulse trains</li> <li>Repetition rates between 100 Hz and 200 GHz, even up to 10 THz</li> <li>Operation wavelengths of both DFB lasers can be tuned relative to each other </li> </ul> <br> <strong>IP Rights</strong><br> US patent application (04/2009)<br> European patent application <br><br> <strong>Origin</strong><br> Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin</p>

Im Focus: Reliable in-line inspections of high-strength automotive body parts within seconds

Nondestructive material testing (NDT) is a fast and effective way to analyze the quality of a product during the manufacturing process. Because defective materials can lead to malfunctioning finished products, NDT is an essential quality assurance measure, especially in the manufacture of safety-critical components such as automotive B-pillars. NDT examines the quality without damaging the component or modifying the surface of the material. At this year's Blechexpo trade fair in Stuttgart, Fraunhofer IZFP will have an exhibit that demonstrates the nondestructive testing of high-strength automotive body parts using 3MA. The measurement results are available in a matter of seconds.

To minimize vehicle weight and fuel consumption while providing the highest level of crash safety, automotive bodies are reinforced with elements made from...

Im Focus: Kick-off for a new era of precision astronomy

The MICADO camera, a first light instrument for the European Extremely Large Telescope (E-ELT), has entered a new phase in the project: by agreeing to a Memorandum of Understanding, the partners in Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria, and Italy, have all confirmed their participation. Following this milestone, the project's transition into its preliminary design phase was approved at a kick-off meeting held in Vienna. Two weeks earlier, on September 18, the consortium and the European Southern Observatory (ESO), which is building the telescope, have signed the corresponding collaboration agreement.

As the first dedicated camera for the E-ELT, MICADO will equip the giant telescope with a capability for diffraction-limited imaging at near-infrared...

Im Focus: Locusts at the wheel: University of Graz investigates collision detector inspired by insect eyes

Self-driving cars will be on our streets in the foreseeable future. In Graz, research is currently dedicated to an innovative driver assistance system that takes over control if there is a danger of collision. It was nature that inspired Dr Manfred Hartbauer from the Institute of Zoology at the University of Graz: in dangerous traffic situations, migratory locusts react around ten times faster than humans. Working together with an interdisciplinary team, Hartbauer is investigating an affordable collision detector that is equipped with artificial locust eyes and can recognise potential crashes in time, during both day and night.
