MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA - Mobius Photonics, a producer of short pulsed fiber laser sources (IR, UV, and visible wavelengths), has been granted a United States patent for "Tailored Pulse Burst." The patent number is 8,160,113.
The patent covers a unique optical system that can produce user-specified bursts of laser pulses tailored in pulse heights, pulse widths, and pulse spacings. Unlike some technologies, the system does not require an acousto-optic modulator or internal Q-switch. The invention has particular relevance for applications requiring a simple laser system that produces consistent, high-quality pulse bursts that can be customized for different processes. Potential applications range from high-pulse-energy materials processing to laser direct imaging and solar panel processing.
