Quantel eyes the future of lasers19.01.2012
Quantel are working on a new generation of lasers based on fibre optics. So the laser is produced in the optical fibre. It delivers a great beam quality, lots of power and it’s easy to use and transport. They are trying to develop visible light lasers that are really powerful, with different colours, greens, yellows, reds, for use in medical applications. Quantel work´s in ophthalogy, so everything to do with retina correction. So It´s necessary colour to penetrate the eye and power to be able to achieve the process of photocoagulation, to be able to correct the fault in the retina.
As Quantel develops its products, it is working with other high-tech partners in an EU project on fibre lasers.
Today fiber lasers reach several tens of thousands of watts in a tiny little fibre, and that will continue to go up.
