Our commercial partner, Innloas laser has been developing new laser systems for the project. These are now added to their product portfolio. An example of the new developments is shown below.
The quality of the laser source is extremely important for this project of succeed. At an early stage we identified areas we needed to improve on, which include energy stability, beam profile, wavefront and beam coherence. Innolas has been able to improve on the state of the art in all these aspects, as shown below:
In addition, Innolas has developed optimised lasers for the different deposition techniques we use. For example a high rep rate source for the CVD work at CEIT.
