Laser Physics

In addition to modern commercial laser systems, the Working Group on Optical Technologies also focuses on application-specific proprietary developments and the realization of new laser concepts. The work is focused on diode-pumped solid-state lasers, which are essentially based on rare-doped glass fibers. Most of the laser developments are designed to produce ultrafast light pulses with pulse durations ranging from a few picoseconds down to a few tens of femtoseconds (see section ultrafast laser pulses).
