ISLA demonstration phase
The ISLA project is in its demonstration phase, and there are opportunities for interested in 2 um fibre lasers.
There are components, including optical isolators and fused fibre combiners, which could be available to external organisations for testing.
If you are interested, please get in touch!
Likewise, we would be pleased to hear from […]
ISLA newsletter #5 (Oct-2014)
The ISLA newsletter #5 has been released, with items on high power testing of Gooch & Housego isolators and combiners, modelocker development at Trinity College Dublin and rare earth fibre fabrication at Southampton ORC.
And we are still on the look-out for end users interested in 2 um fibre lasers!
Please get in […]
ISLA demonstration call for end users
ISLA is now in its final year, and has entered the demonstration phase.
The consortium has decided to use real industrial applications to test the ISLA two micron fibre lasers on representative commercial operations.
We will be contacting several organisations that have made both suggestions for testing and offers to supply parts for the demonstration.
