Development of Amplified Section to Boost seed front end to >300w and <800fs
Lead by SPR, the overall aim of WP2 is to develop the main amplifier section seeded by the output of an oscillator front end. As input seed source both the seed oscillator developed in WP1 and Spectra-Physics own seed oscillator will be investigated.
Demonstration of the kw-flexiburst laser in relevant applications
The overall aim of WP5, which is lead by DG, is to demonstrate and evaluate the potential of the kW-flexiburst USP laser in different industrial applications with respect to volume ablation rate (throughput in mm3/min, m2/h or holes/min), precision of topology and avoidance of debris, burrs and molten zones.
