Coherent and Nonlinear Optical Devices

  • Application-oriented design of laser and nonlinear optical systems
  • Computer models for laser dynamics1, for active, nonlinear and passive Q-switching, for intracavity frequency convertors (harmonics, parametric oscillators, stimulated Raman and Brillouin scattering)
  • Optimization of laser systems and laser applications based on computer models
  • Computer models for laser/matter interaction (heating, welding, micromachining) for both nanosecond and femtosecond lasers
  • Development of special algorithms and programs for data processing, control and financial models

Our services are based on more than 30 years of successful research, applied and contract work with university laboratories, small companies, and government organizations

Numerical Laser Models:Computer models of laser systems (virtual lasers) can be very efficient low-cost tools for evaluation of intended laser designs, for optimization of laser components, and for "computer testing" of lasers and laser systems. In many cases virtual experiments help to discover new features of a system. Given required laser parameters and limitations (defined by customer) the whole design process will be carried out.

1I am grateful to Professor Henry van Driel for his major contribution to the first computer model of the laser dynamics with intracavity saturable absorber and a nonlinear frequency converter.
2The computer model of the laser micromachining with account of all major contributing processes (absorption, heating, heat diffusion, phase transition, etching) was developed for the first time in 2001.
