Infrared semiconductor disk lasers

High power, tunable wavelength, or extremely narrow linewidth: the semiconductor disk lasers (SDLs) developed at Fraunhofer IAF can be customized to a wide range of applications. At the same time the SDLs can cover every arbitrary emission wavelength in the 1,9 – 2,8 μm range. In addition to applications in medical therapy and pumping of solid-state lasers, SDLs are ideally suited for measurement technology or quantum optics.
