Pulsed Fibre Lasers
We specialise in developing pulsed laser technology for use in medicine, defence, renewable energy, and manufacturing.
We are the world’s leading research group in developing pulsed fibre lasers since they were first demonstrated in the mid-1980s. Our research focuses on:
A pulsed fibre laser is a type of laser that emits high intensity light pulses in a short burst mode (typically ranging from fs to ns) and uses optical fibres as a laser gain medium. It can produce extremely high peak powers, which is very useful in variety of material processing, micromachining, laser surgery, and scientific applications.
The pulses emitted by a pulsed fibre laser can be generated using a variety of techniques, including Q-switching, gain-switching, and mode-locking and it has various attractive features, including:
We offer the following PhD opportunities:
Our research group is mainly working in three different wavelength regions (1um, 1.55um and 2um) for various applications in telecommunications, bioimaging, material processing.
