Laser Systems (PL)

This group encompasses novel laser system development for a broad range of scientific, industrial, medical, remote sensing and other directed-energy applications. The group addresses technical issues concerning sources that cover the full spectral range, including: ultraviolet, visible, infrared, terahertz and microwave. Strong overlap with other technical groups that study and develop laser techniques and technologies brings together researchers and engineers to produce sources with unique performance, such as high-power, ultra-short pulses and high coherence.
