November 13--Midaz Lasers Ltd, a spinout company from Imperial College, is developing a range of diode-pumped solid-state (DPSS) lasers, which it predicts will outperform other solid-state laser products available today.
"This is an enormous step forward in laser technology. We are confident that Midaz has a significant lead over competitors because of our ability to provide simultaneously Q-switched very high power, high beam quality, and a wide range of pulse repetition rate in small laser packaging. We are now very close to launching our products after several years research in my Laser Group at Imperial College London," says Founder and CTO Professor Mike Damzen.
Midaz lasers utilize standard componentry, which ensures repeatable and reliable performance. Low build costs will enable Midaz to compete with traditional laser source manufacturers in industrial applications.
Thanks to seed capital from Imperial College and Dr. Paul Atherton, chairman and lead investor, Midaz has moved into a new facility and is at the point of testing its prototypes for final manufacture.
