Powerlase partners with Eolite Systems on laser systems

Powerlase Ltd., a manufacturer of nanosecond Q-switched diode-pumped solid state (DPSS) lasers, has announced a strategic partnership with French fiber laser innovator Eolite Systems. The partnership will see Powerlase and Eolite combining their engineering and applications capabilities to broaden the range of laser systems they produce and the markets they can address.

The partnership also provides a cooperative environment for both companies to jointly develop market and business opportunities.

The high average power, high beam quality lasers that Eolite produces complements the high average power, medium beam quality laser supplied by Powerlase. In combination, the new, broader range of lasers is suited for multi-stage manufacturing processes that require multiple laser parameters, such as in the manufacture of photovoltaics.

Eolite technology is based on the innovative rod-type fiber configuration. This simultaneously enables high average powers, high beam quality and the ability to frequency convert to green and ultraviolet wavelengths.

Powerlase brings the ability to turn cutting edge laser technology into systems suitable for demanding industrial environments as well as market development strategies. This has been proven particularly in the plasma display market where multiple systems have been running with high uptime for in excess of a million combined operating hours.

"This is a very exciting time for both Eolite and Powerlase as we join forces to combine our expertise to access a broader range of applications both with existing and jointly developed new products. This partnership enables us to address existing, expanding markets as well as opening new markets," said Les Lockwood, CEO at Powerlase.
