EOT Provides Components for HAPLS

Electro-Optics Technology (EOT) supplies many components to the High-Repetition-Rate Advanced Petawatt Laser System (HAPLS) developed at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Today HAPLS can produce 0.5 petawatt (PW) of power at 3.3 Hz. This is 200,000 times faster than the first petawatt laser. This laser has a repetition rate of up to 10 Hz with a … Continue reading

DeepCleave Cuts Thick Glass Evenly along Focal Depth

Laser glass cutting with ultra-short IR pulses is fast becoming a key technique for high throughput glass processing. Cutting of thick glass (> 500 µm) using this technique possesses unique challenges, as the laser energy needs to be both focused to a tight spot and spread evenly throughout the depth of the glass. To help … Continue reading
