Fianium's new US applications lab aims to prove materials-processing strength of ultrafast fiber lasers

June 4, 2009--Fianium (Southampton, England) has opened a new micro-materials processing applications lab in Portland, OR, to enable work with OEMs in testing material samples and to highlight the processing results attainable with its picosecond fiber lasers. Fianium says ultrafast fiber lasers trump DPSS lasers for processing even challenging materials such as polymers, glasses, organic tissue and reflective metals.

June 4, 2009--Ultrafast fiber laser manufacturer Fianium (Southampton, England) has opened a new, US-based micro-materials processing applications lab. Fianium established the facility to enable work with OEMs in testing material samples and to highlight the processing results attainable with its picosecond fiber lasers. Fianium aims to prove that ultrafast fiber lasers are superior for materials processing of a diverse range of targets, including materials--such as polymers, glasses, organic tissue and reflective metals--that have historically proven difficult to process using conventional DPSS lasers.
