Tucson, Ariz. – Applied Energetics Inc. and Laser Light Technologies Inc. have entered into a cooperative work agreement to jointly develop ultrashort pulse lasers and processes for the laser micromachining market.
Under terms of the agreement, Applied Energetics (AE) will provide an ultrashort pulse (USP) laser to Laser Light Technologies (LLTI) for the purpose of developing processes and methods for conducting micromachining of a wide variety of materials. LLTI will provide AE expertise on micromachining of materials at AE's Laser Applications Center, and also provide feedback on the optimization of processes for use in the development of future USP laser systems. Additionally, LLTI will be able to sell AE's USP lasers to their customers on a commission basis. Ultrashort pulse lasers are one of the fastest growing segments of the laser industry.
Applied Energetics, based in Tucson, currently specializes in development and manufacture of advanced high performance lasers, high voltage electronics, advanced optical systems, and integrated guided energy systems for defense, aerospace, industrial, and scientific customers worldwide.
Laser Light Technologies, Hermann, Mo., specializes in high-technology laser micromachining services and research and development.
