There has been an excellent response to the ISLA workshop invitations, and preparations are well under way.
There will be a range of presentations on the progress made in 2 um fibre laser component hardware by the ISLA partners, including Tm- and Ho-fibres (ORC), passive and active components (G&H), graphene modelockers (TCD) and 79x nm diode lasers (II-VI). An overview of 2 um fibre lasers, including CW, ns- and ps- sources will be presented (Rofin & JDSU).
We are very pleased to host the following presentations on 2 um laser technology from guest speakers:
2 um laser development and applications
Dr. Samir Lamrini; LISA Laser
