NASA Working on Advanced Femtosecond Laser System for NextGen Technologies

Use of laser technology is common in various fields of application today, but with the progress in technological advancements, next-gen lasers need to be updated and improved too. This is the reason why a group of researchers from NASA has decided to make an experiment with femtosecond laser module.

Femtosecond laser systems are ultrafast fiber lasers that operate at wavelengths from 1.0 μm and 1.5 μm. Herewith, femtosecond fiber lasers, like other types of fiber lasers, offer lower cost of ownership, eco-friendly technology, and high beam quality. These qualities make femtosecond fiber lasers highly desirable for multiple fields of application.
