Marko Laurila of DTU Fotonik will present a post deadline paper at CLEO Europe 2011 in Munich.
“The European Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics and the XIIth European Quantum Electronics Conference (CLEO®/Europe-EQEC) is the largest, most comprehensive and prestigious gathering of optics and photonics researchers and engineers organized in Europe in 2011.” The post deadline papers will reflect the latest significant discoveries in the field of optics.
The post deadline paper was done in collaboration with EOLITE Systems (France) and NKT Photonics (Denmark). The work shows the great ability of DTU Fotonik establishing solid industrial collaboration with both Danish and foreign companies which are motivated on working with the latest innovations and pursue new breakthroughs.
EOLITE systems has developed original and patented solutions to produce short polarized laser pulses with very excellent beam quality. New technologies such as the rod type fiber were introduced to reach high average power frequency tunable pulsed fiber lasers. These important developments enabled for the first time to produce high power harmonics (green and UV) and makes EOLITE to be the Pioneers in this field.
NKT Photonics will lead the way in the development of the photonics industry by setting new standards for fiber based lasers and light sources. From the design and manufacture of advanced photonic crystal fibers to the volume production of critical light engines, we are committed to serve our customers with fiber based products at any level of the value chain.
